The prisoner is a dying man who is imprisoned with you at the start of the quest Escape the Catacombs. He is a member of the Restless League, but unlike many of his compatriots he was singled out for interrogation and torture. One such instance, in which he was stretched on a rack, left him paralyzed from the waist down. He managed to smuggle a key to the Saintsport lighthouse into the cell by swallowing it, which he gives to Cyrus shortly before dying.

First time:

"Where am I?"
"Beneath the Palace. Ancient catacombs. Nice place to rot and die."

Every other time:

"We've got to get out of here."
"Not me, pal. Not going anywhere. They broke something, and I can't feel my legs."


"Was there ever a young woman down here?"
"Who knows. Not since I came here, a few weeks ago."

Who Are You[edit]

"Who are you? Why are you here?"
"Just another League hero. But no execution for me... a little torture, interrogation, then left to die in this hole. Fooled 'em, though. Swallowed the key. Got it right here. See?
"Bit nasty when it came out the other end. Not looking forward to swallowing it again... though. Can't leave it around when they haul my corpse outta here."


"We've got to escape. Do you know a way out of here?"
"I'm going nowhere. That rack... must have broken something. Legs don't move."

"The League... What about the League?"
"The League? We're a dying breed, man. Like everything else in this town since Richton came. We may not be much... but we're all that's left."

RG-misc-Log Entry.png Dying Restless League prisoner said something about going to a lighthouse to signal the League. Received a rusty key.
"Lighthouse. Yes. Go on."
"Lighthouse. Like I said. Whoo. Getting dark in here. Getting really tired. And here. Take this key."
"Why? What about the..."
"Just listen! I think I'm losing... take the damn key.... Don't leave it here! Go to the lighthouse. Signal the League."
"What's the key for? What's the signal? Hey! You...? Damn..."


"Hold on. I'll be back."

A line that may have been intended as a reaction to Cyrus standing on the prisoner:

"*Agh!* Get... off! Not... dead... yet..."
