Southpeak games has decided to bless us with some fresh screens from their upcoming officially licensed title Prison Break: The Conspiracy. With said screenshots and in typical SouthPeak fashion we are also given some insight as to who the character in the pictures is and what he is all about. I am actually looking forward to checking this out as I have yet to see a single episode of the TV show and I know that makes Yaris very upset. Hopefully this title will make me want to actually see it. Either way hit the jump to check out the screens and the character bio for “Lincoln Burrows.
Lincoln Burrows, often referred to as “Linc” or “Linc the Sink” (a name given to him by other inmates,) is the older brother of Michael Scofield. After their mother passed away, Lincoln took on the responsibility of caring for his brother and became Michael’s guardian. Lincoln endured a tumultuous youth, starting with his dropping out of high school during his sophomore year and leading to a life marred by crime and violence. Even early on, he already had a number of convictions on his rap sheet, including theft, battery and possession of illegal substances.
Lincoln continued looking after his brother even into adulthood. He borrowed money to finance Michael’s college education to the tune of $90.000; not a paltry sum. When Michael wondered how his brother was able to send him to school, Lincoln told Michael that the money came from their mother’s life insurance. However, ultimately the money came from the very source that wound up framing Lincoln for the death of the vice president’s brother, Terrence Steadman.
Facts & Anecdotes
- Lincoln is father to a son, Lincoln Burrows Jr. (LJ), that he had together with his ex-girlfriend, Lisa Rix.
- During the course of Season 1, Lincoln’s son, LJ, starts to reconnect with his estranged father.
Lincoln’s incarceration instigated deep feelings of guilt in his brother Michael, who felt responsible since the borrowed money for his education may have had a part in Lincoln’s predicament.
