Throughout the game Torque will encounter un-named survivors, mostly un-armed and the weapons are found near them. One of these survivors is Ranse Truman. Notable survivors are listed below. As with most humans, their ultimate fate relies on Torque's aid.


A young drug addict who Torque must "help" by escorting him to an apartment complex to get his drugs. Due to his drug problem, he thinks Torque is his father, and relies on him for protection. After injecting himself, he finds his friend Freddy on the floor after he committed suicide with a shotgun, which he previously did not notice, despite the fact that he was right in front of the door. While escorting him, the player will find out that he accidentally shot, and probably killed his younger brother.

He is voiced by Scott Menville.


A former neighbor of Torque's who meets up with him near his old apartment. Hejirah appears to be a militant Muslim member of a black nationalist group (before parting with Torque he urges him to continue fighting, quoting Malcolm X's By any means necessary saying) and is on his way to meet up with a group of his friends at a special place (a Christian Service named the 'Mission') where they were supposed to meet once the city collapsed. He assists Torque on his path through the city until reaching the Canal Street Mission, where he is shocked to find that none of his friends have arrived(and also ignoring the blood splatter and one or two corpses in the area for some reason). He decides to wait for them and parts ways with Torque.
