Juice's addiction to electricity and the damage it causes started at a very early age. The first time juice stuck a key into an electrical outlet was a moment similar in effect, as Mozart's first time at the piano. The rush he felt was so powerful and fulfilling that he felt compelled to share its joy with others. At the age of 6, juice grabbed a hold of his cousin Tommy, smiled real big for his watching mom, and forced the metal key into the electrical outlet. From that point on, juice would have to find his electric friend in the confines of boarding homes and juvenile detention centers. After his untimely release from the juvenile system, juice immediately walked to the pool at the town country club, rigged up a nearby power line, waited for the perfect moment to introduce his friend to a packed pool, and earned himself a life sentence at Statesville.

Whisper has been the bounty hunter for Statesville Prison since its opening at the turn of the century. It was his job and his passion to capture any escaped convict that made it past the walls. One can say that he was obsessed with his prey. He spent his off days hiding in the shadows of the prison, studying his prey before they even attempted escape. Some inmates claimed that they didn’t even want to escape, but they kept hearing someone encourage them to break out, whispers in the night. Prison records show that “Whisper” had developed an addiction to stimulants while hunting his prey. It was his belief that he could catch any ones trail, if he didn’t need time to rest. To that end, he created a breathing mask that would continually feed him his drug while hunting. Unfortunately, this addiction changed the man that stood for law and order, and created a manipulator of monstrous proportions that secretly aided men in their escape, only so that he could hunt them down like dogs. Before the uprising, Whisper disappeared into the shadows of the prison and did not return until the uprising was finished. There is a theory that Whisper slipped into madness, got too close to his prisoners, and freed the Warden himself. On the other hand, he may have freed the prisoners simply because he enjoys hunting them. To this day, no prisoner has escaped.
