Miles Upshur – The main protagonist, a freelance journalist who is tipped off to possibly illegal activity at the Mount Massive Asylum, run by the Murkoff Corporation. He is the only character who never actually speaks, instead simply screaming, grunting, and breathing heavily during intense sequences, and whose thoughts are instead expressed by handwritten notes. Despite the trouble he experiences at the asylum, he maintains a firm determination to complete his objectives, utilizing his pathfinding skills to find new routes, and even has a slight but dark sense of humor. At the end of the game, Upshur is shot, possibly to death, by SWAT officers under the orders of Dr. Wernicke to prevent him from reporting the asylum's illegal experimentations to the public. He could've survived thanks to the Walrider having possessed him, but whether he did survive or not is currently unknown.
