Go To



* EstablishingCharacterMoment: After York introduces himself in his typical manner and states he'll be resting at the hotel to prepare for tackling the case, George purposely calls him "Agent Morgan" with emphasis on his last name and tells him to just consider this a paid vacation and not get in the police's way. It immediately cements George as a prideful man not at all keen on York muscling in on his jurisdiction (or "kingdom", as York puts it in an aside).



* IOwnThisTown: York quickly profiles him with having some sort of ruler complex, identifying him as the "King" of the town, and there are several sign that he and most of the townfolk don't disagree.

Added DiffLines:

* FreudianExcuse: His oddities make a lot more sense as coping mechanisms when he eventually reveals [[DarkAndTroubledPast horrific things he witnessed as a child]]. [[spoiler: And more so as a SplitPersonality capable of dealing with Zach's trauma.]]


** PainfulRhyme: 'Premonition' with 'Investigation'.

** During her first sidequest, she attempts to make Italian beef stew with milk, macaroni, flour, butter...and no beef. York comes along and gets her to add cheese, which turns it into surprisingly edible macaroni and cheese, but she gets offended that he can't tell what she was originally trying to make.



The other deputy sherriff of Greenvale. Thomas is rather weak-willed and often becomes stressed under pressure, but still does a good job as a deputy sherriff. During the day, he works at the sherriff's department. At night, he tends bar in his sister's club, the Galaxy of Terror.

* InsecureLoveInterest: Is self-conscious about the fact that Becky lives in a giant mansion while he lives in a trailer, and worries that he isn't good enough for her. [[spoiler: He gets into smuggling in order to raise enough money to move somewhere nice with her.]]



* UnluckyChildhoodFriend: It's implied that Richard has been in love with Sally since childhood.

Added DiffLines:

A younger York returns as the protagonist of the sequel, which deals with a case he worked on during 2004 before the events of the first game.


** York is a weirdo. But despite this, he is a genuinely good FBI agent - he even knows enough to rattle off statistics on the nature of weird FBI cases, and how only 1% of all crimes investigated by the FBI get aired by the media.

to:

** York is a weirdo. But despite this, weirdo, but he is may be putting on a genuinely good FBI agent - little bit of a show on to catch serial killers. As he even knows enough to rattle off statistics on muses in one car conversation, serial killers never make sense, and can't be caught by logic. Given the nature sort of weird FBI cases, and how only 1% of all crimes investigated by the FBI get aired by the media.place Greenvale is, it's implied he's somewhat correct on this.

* RedHerring: When he first meets York, he tells him that the Raincoat Killer is not a legend and to come to him later for further information. He's absolutely right about the Raincoat Killer, but when you do go speak to Lysander, the only stories he will ever tell you are about Vietnam. This despite the fact that [[spoiler: he was in the military at the time the town was gassed, and thus should know a great deal about the Raincoat Killer.]]
