You have heard of the High Reverend Carlisle Murphy, but a man like him does not travel alone. This week we rundown all of Murphy’s entourage. Their rougher edges are smoothed away making them a little more realistic and a little less like mini bosses. The lineup includes, Heath Millwright, Alluria Fiero, Mother Superior Alexus, Death, H4X0R, Uriel, and The Beast.
After the world ends everything on Earth is up for grabs, but everything above it is owned by one man: Seven Star General Carter Gray “Freefall” Jamison. Ace pilot, strong leader, and tortured soul. The side character we loved so much that we brought him back from the dead.
After Jamison we talk about a character we use to love a whole hell of a lot because he was the paragon of cool: “Black Jack” McCoy. We now think he is a bit of a prick so we completely overhaul him into a land baron, casino franchise owner, and sort of underground Murphy resistance.

If Archer is the oldest man in the apocalyptic barrens Vhraiden is the angriest. Sheltered from the outside in an isolationist cult he now enters the world in search of vengeance for his lost way of life.
