Occupation: High School Student and Part Time Waitress at A&G
A sweet, beautiful girl lovingly referred to as a “classic airhead.” Anna had dreams of moving to the city to pursue a modeling career. Before her death she lived with her widowed mother, Sallie, and worked closely with Olivia Cormak at the A&G diner as a waitress.
Anna was eager to enter the real world but unfortunately those dreams were tragically cut short as she was the first Raincoat Killer victim. Her body was discovered strung up on a tree by the Ingram twins and their grandfather, Jim Green, while they took a morning stroll through the Greenvale forest. It’s been suggested that Anna’s naivety of the real world is what ultimately contributed to her untimely death.
As it turns out Anna wasn’t quite as innocent as she seemed. In her eagerness to experience the real world she, along with her best friend Becky Ames, were lured into joining a secret S&M club run by George Woodman beneath the Galaxy of Terror. George later brought Anna to the old and abandoned lumber mill with the promise of a good time and brutally sacrificed her in a ritual to gain power and immortality.
Occupation: High School Student and Part Time Clerk at the Milk Barn
This young lady seems to have it all, looks, money and the good looking Quint Dunn head overs heels for her. With things going so well it’s not surprising that the death of her best friend Anna Graham hit Becky terribly hard. When Agent York arrives in town she has sequestered herself in her stately home with no signs of ever leaving.
But there seems to be more than just grief keeping her locked away from her friends. What is Becky so afraid of? Does it have to do with Anna’s murderer?
Turns out Becky did have a legitimate fear, but even her self imposed lock down from the rest of the town couldn’t save her from being George Woodman’s second victim.
Not only was Becky lured into joining George Woodman’s secret S&M club beneath the Galaxy of Terror, she also got caught up in selling some sort of red seed based drug and used her boyfriend Quint Dunn as the club’s drug runner.
Sadly, even though Agent Morgan found Becky alive shortly after her attack George silenced her before she could finger him as her killer.
Brian “The Insomiac”
Occupation: Graveyard Keeper
Brian is quite a strange fellow who prefers the retro look of yesteryear and more often then not found in the Greenvale cemetery. For reasons unknown he is unable to sleep but it may be just a side effect of his position as grave keeper in Greenvale.
There are several hints that Brian may not actually be alive. If you complete Side Mission No. 49 – Seven Bones you’ll see that the bones you returned belongs to a Brian X who lived from 1921-1956. Considering how anxious Brian was to have the bones returned, his inability to ever leave the graveyard, the dilapidated state of his home (Side Mission No. 50 – Ghost House Treasure) and his retro style of dress are clear indications the man is a ghost.
Additionally in the Japanese/Korean DP manual there’s a Greevale newspaper clipping used as decoration on page 22 that implies that Brian “The Insomiac” was a victim of an hit and run accident outside of the graveyard!
Occupation: Owns the Galaxy of Terror bar and lounge and sings there
This songbird, who despite being under aged, is the sole owner and singer of the popular Galaxy of Terror. Carol spends her nights singing to patrons while her older brother, Thomas, works behind the bar. She’s not the friendliest of people and has a quick temper but even she was affected by Anna’s sudden death despite her protests to York of being close with her. She must of had some fond feelings for the girl or she wouldn’t be scouring the Greenvale forest looking for a blurry candid photo of the two together.
Carol became George Woodman’s fourth victim in a secret room behind one of the cells in the police station shortly after her brother’s death. Like Thomas she loved George deeply and set up the S&M club to please him.
While dying in Emily’s arms she asked for her brother whom Emily shot only hours before. In a fit of anger over her brothers death, and jealousy over George’s love, she shoved red seeds down Emily’s mouth in an attempt to kill her.
Occupation: Curator and Owner of the Muses Gallery
Becky’s older sister Diane is just like the paintings in her gallery is the picture of elegance and known around town for wearing stilettos and leaving a trail of broken hearts in her wake.
When not enjoying the company of men she is often drinking and discussing art with Nick Cormac over at the Galaxy of Terror during the evenings. She’s also a regular visitor to the Great Deer Yard Hotel sharing lunch/dinner and daily conversations with Polly Oxford the owner.
The exclusive tree subject matter in her art gallery may seem a bit odd but it relates to her childhood dream of living in the forest. Since the now grown Diane loves wearing tight dresses and high heels forest living really isn’t pratical but she made it a reality, in a way, with her tree themed art gallery.
Even though Diane was out of town when Anna was murdered she may still have a connection with her killer.
Like Anna and Becky, Diane was a part of George’s harem in the secret S&M club beneath the Galaxy of Terror. Shortly after her younger sisters death she became George Woodman’s third victim in his bid to gain immortality and power from the red seeds.
Occupation: Greenvale Sheriff Deputy
This pretty young deputy is one bright spot for Agent York in this whole dismal Greenvale murder case. Her golden hair, bright blue eyes and quick wit she elicits a strange warm feeling of nostalgia inside for York when in her presence…even though she seems not to like him quite the same way in return.
Unlike many of Greenvale’s residents, Emily moved to town from the big city while she was still in high school. She had a little trouble fitting in at first due to her wild looks but surprised many however when she chose a career in the local law enforcement. Even now years later Emily still has the perspective of an outsider looking in on Greenvale’s history and traditions.
Emily had a very close relationship with her mother but sadly lost her just before high school graduation only shares a strained and distant relationship with her stockbroker father who lives back in the city.
Emily may look heavenly but the same can’t be said for the lady’s cooking which is categorized as being “not for two legged animals.” That’s not to say she’s not trying to improve proved by the remains of various charred meal attempts littering her kitchen daily.
Eager to crack the murder case, Emily is more willing than George to put up with Agent York’s peculiar investigation methods and often ends up as a mediator between the two.
Anna’s murder signaled the beginning of the end of the life as Emily knew in Greenvale. As the body count rose she learned the true nature of those she once held in high regard.
Emily was blissfully unaware of George’s obsession for her since her arrivial to town all those years ago and as a result was blindsided by a jealous Thomas’ hatred and resentment revealed during his pyschotic break. During their final confrontation in the clocktower Emily was forced to shoot her beloved colleague in self defense and later became the last victim of the Red Seed killer, Forrest Kasyen.
Emily died in Francis Zach Morgan’s arms, the true personality of our FBI Agent and the man she came came in their short time together to love. With Zach’s second personality, York, by her side Emily joined the rest of the George’s victims as a goddess of the Greenvale forest.
Occupation: Greenvale Hospital Receptionist
Age: Unknown but seems to be in her 20’s
This friendly freckled red head is often found with her nose in a book behind the receptionist desk at the Greenvale Hospital. She has a great love for a good story and not so secretly pines for Dr. Ushah Johnson, doing whatever she can to catch his eye.
Occupation: Red Tree Sapling Salesman
Age: Unknown appears to be 40 -50
A traveling red tree sapling salesman who was out of town when Anna was murdered but returned to Greenvale shortly after and stayed in the Great Deer Yard Hotel with Agent York. He’s a jolly fellow who has been coming around Greenvale once or twice a year for vacation with his dog Willie for awhile now. The folks around town are fond of them and Kaysen spends a lot of his time chatting with Polly or hanging with the Ingram twins. Recently separated from his wife he also one of many men who enjoys spending quality time with Diane Ames.
“FK” in the coffee… Forrest Kaysen is who York’s coffee tried to warn him about. George Woodman may have been the man behind the recent string of Greenvale murders but it’s Kaysen who’s the red seed killer York’s been tracking across the country.
Kaysen isn’t human and that’s really the only thing we know for sure about him…besides his love for to causing humans pain and misery. He’s an ‘Agent of the Red Tree’ who’s sole existence is to spread the Red Tree’s seeds and evil around the world. We aren’t told whether this Red Tree is demonic or extraterrestrial but it’s safe to assume it’s pure evil.
Kaysen has been the catalyst behind each terrible event in Greenvale town history, including the release of the mysterious toxins that created the original Raincoat killer in the 1950’s and more recently convinced George to go on his Greenvale murder spree. But Kaysen’s evil was by no means limited only to the small town of Greenvale. Undercover as a traveling sapling salesman Kaysen spread the evil of the Red Tree far across the United States.
The evil Kaysen has spread hits close to home with Agent Morgan, though York doesn’t realize right away. He is responsible for both mentally and physically scarring a young Francis Zach Morgan who watched a red tree Kaysen planted within his mother kill her and provoke his father into committing suicide. Witnessing the death of his parents along with the physical blow Kaysen gave Zach across the face triggered Zach’s second personality, York, and retreat of the Zach personality.
This direct tie to Zach’s past is what made Kaysen’s utter and complete defeat in their final showdown on the town clock tower solid justice.
Occupation: Greenvale Sheriff
“The Monarch,” as York likes to call him is the trustworthy but stern sheriff of Greenvale. He’s not happy with the FBI presence in his murder investigation and even less thrilled with the York’s peculiar investigation methods.
George however cares deeply for Greenvale and like the rest of the residents is floored that Anna’s grisly murder has occurred under his watchful eyes.
But despite their initial friction George does come respect Agent Morgan’s skills and even seems to warm up to the man.
…Or so York thinks after the George’s heartfelt confession his abusive childhood over beers at the Galaxy of Terror.
But like many serial killers before him, George learned to hide his true colors well. He fooled not only Agent Morgan but the rest of Greenvale until it was much too late.
His mother’s abuse left not only physical scars on his face and back but mental scars as well, turning George into a very power hungry man as an adult. Even though he had the undying love from the MacLaine siblings as well as the respect from the entire town as Greenvale’s Sheriff George still desired more in life.
This distaste with small town life started shortly after Emily Wyatt moved to Greenvale years ago with her parents. George was awestruck by Emily’s beauty and her big city attitude and fashion. Seeing this “goddess from the city” is what made him realized he deserved more than what Greenvale had to offer.
George was so smitten that he asked Emily, who was still just a high school student, out right away. With the 20 year age gap between them it’s not surprising that Emily refused. Even now years later it’s not enough for him that he has her friendship and deep respect he’s completely fixated on having her to himself.
George’s initial admiration has taken a dark turn over the years twisting into an unhealthy obsession. His basement is an Emily shrine decorated with items she used or touched with his copious notes and photos of her lining the walls. George satisfied his lust with the MacLaine siblings and counted down the days until Emily would finally be his.
George discovered the unique power of the red tree seeds when he was unable to kill a group of deer who grazed around the red trees. He though they were some sort of zombie at first but saw that their immortality was due to a belly full of red tree seeds. Intrigued George talked to Kaysen, the red tree sampling salesman, about his discovery and learned that the seeds could bring divinity. Kaysen bestowed a red tree locket and told George he was special, the “Chosen One” meant to use the red seed power.
George learned the details of the red seed ritual for this ultimate power and immortality from Thomas. It’s unknown how Thomas found this information out himself but it’s possible he stumbled upon it while organizing the Sheriff Department file room. It’s also a safe bet that Kaysen, the evil agent of the Red Tree, somehow planted this information for Thomas to find.
George was convinced that the years of his mother’s abuse and Emily’s rejection were only trials to prepare him for his true destiny of ultimate power. He past abuse ingrained the logic that it’s the right of the powerful to take what they want and rule over the weak. The red seeds guaranteed George that sort of power and once he had his immortality and full control of the town Emily would surely fall into his arms.
This desire for control and for Emily made it easy for Kaysen to convince George to go forward with the female sacrifices that were a part of the red seeds immortality ritual. Kaysen however only believed George was a fool and used his desires as a way to spread the Red Tree’s evil influence throughout the town.
George’s overconfidence in his own importance and the red seeds in the end lead to his downfall. He not only lost the girl but his life to the very FBI agent he couldn’t stand.

Gina (The Rose) runs the Heaven and Hell Gas Station with her husband Jack “The Raging Bull.” Isn’t into discussing “complicated stuff” but believes her other “assets” makes up for what she may lack upstairs.

This wheelchair bond old eccentric owns most of Greenvale thanks to his father starting lumber industry boom in the town many years ago. He is never seen without a gas mask and only talks to others through his aide Michael Tillotson.

As it turns out Harry knows quite a bit about the start of Greenvale’s problems. He witnessed the town wide massacre in triggered by a mysterious purple gas released by the US the military (and unknown to him, Kaysen) into the town back in the 1950’s.
Harry watched as his father, who later is referred to as the legendary Raincoat Killer, and other Greenvale citizens slaughtered one another in a blind rage and almost lost his life and his sanity himself that night.
With knowledge that it was a toxic gas caused the Greenvale massacre in the 50’s Harry never goes into public without his custom made gas mask.
But this isn’t his only secret. Harry Stewart is in fact Harry Woodman, George’s biological father. The details are never fully explained but when George was young Harry was unable to cope with his wife’s growing insanity so he left his son and wife to fend for themselves. Personally I don’t know why he left George in his insane wife’s care but after his son’s current murder spree Harry has shown a deep regret in this earlier decision.

Isaach and his brother Isaiah are fond of taking walks in the forest with their grandfather, Jim Green, hanging with Becky Ames along with chatting with Forrest Kaysen and playing with his dog Willie.

(Francis) York Morgan & “Zach”
Occupation: FBI Special Agent
The FBI Special Agent who has come to Greenvale to help the Sheriff Department solve Anna Graham’s murder. He has an interest in the murders of young women and is currently compiling profiles of serial killers for the FBI.
He’s an eccentric man passionate about food, architecture and a great film. His knowledge of movies seems endless and can spout release dates, directors, plots and actors like a living breathing version of the Internet Movie Database.
The man is also very particular about his coffee…but for a good reason. York can see his fortune if he has a good cup of joe and though that seems silly it’s this very skill that has helped him overcome roadblocks in his previous cases.
The agent has an annoying knack for getting under other people’s skin which is usually of some social faux pas York commits when meeting someone new. It’s not that surprising York prefers to work alone…but is he really?
This doesn’t seem to be the case as the Agent has many in-depth coversations with an unseen or heard companion named Zach.
Just don’t don’t ask York about Zach. It’s a private matter afterall.
Even with his quirks, imaginary friend and odd investigation methods York is an accomplished elite special agent and often assigned to handle the Bureau’s more high profile murder cases.
York has been tracking a “Red Seeds” killer across the country the past couple months and believes Anna Graham’s murder may have a connection. Will his search for the killer end in this small Northwestern town?
“Tomorrow you’ll arrive in a place that will change your fate”
That’s what York’s coffee told him before entering Greenvale and the coffee didn’t lie. Once the Agent set foot in town everything changed.
York met Emily, the girl of his dreams, and caught two murderers and confronted an evil from his past…or should I say, Francis Zach Morgan’s past.

Turns out this Special Agent suffers a split personality disorder triggered after witnessing the murders of his parents by Forrest Kaysen 27 years ago. The Agent’s true personality, Zach, retreated while York, the new personality, took over day to day functions.
Whenever York spoke with Zach he was slowly coxing the Zach from his mental prison. Francis Morgan was his own best friend for years and it wasn’t until the Greenvale case did York feel confident enough to completely let go and allow Zach full control again.
Through out the game citizens of Greenvale have made comments on York’s rather large scar. The scar didn’t seem so bad when the Agent’s viewed himself as the York personality but once the true personality took hold we could finally see what the Agent truly looked like.
The scars from his past tragedy were definitely more apparrent, his hair a shocking a large scar ran across his face that left the injured eye a red/brown color.
Francis’ York personality could not handle shooting Emily, the woman he loved, and end her suffering from the red tree Kaysen planted in her womb. Weak in his resolve control was handed to the Zach personality. It was only then did Zach muster the courage to take back control of his life to shield York from pain and protect York like former did for him all these years.
Zach was unable to shoot Emily as well so Emily forcefully pulled the growing tree from her own body. She died in his arms and York, satisfied that Zach was finally strong enough to survive on his own, followed her into the after life.
Zach avenged the deaths of Emily, his parents and other red seed victims across the country when he killed the true red seed killer, Forrest Kaysen, aloft the Greenvale clock tower. Zach left Greenvale with a sad heart but with complete confidence that his best friend York would be fine with Emily by his side.
