    Abigail Walker 

Abigail Walker (AKA "Fetch")
"My name is Abigail Walker, but my friends and enemies call me 'Fetch'. I've never hurt an innocent person in my life."
Voiced by: Laura Bailey

The protagonist of inFAMOUS: First Light. A Conduit with Neon powers who manages to end up on the bad side of both the D.U.P. and the Rowe brothers.

  • Accidental Murder: Accidentally killed her brother Brent in a paranoia-driven argument born of mutual drug withdrawal. This is changed in First Light, where it's shown that she accidentally killed him after she entered a drug-fueled delirium thanks to Shane.
  • Anti-Villain: She's a vigilante who's been going around murdering criminals and drug dealers.
  • The Atoner: She hunts down drug dealers in her brother's name.
  • Break the Cutie: Augustine forces Fetch to recount the events that led to her capture despite already knowing what happened, in order to make her angry enough to become a killing machine.
  • Brooklyn Rage: A badass laser throwing Conduit with a New York accent.
  • Calling Card: She hangs up her victims' bodies for public display, engraving neon "graffiti" on nearby walls.
  • Cute and Psycho: She's definitely cute enough to be seen as attractive by Shane and Delsin, but she's dangerously sadistic and some have gone on record to call her a psychopath.
  • Defeat Means Friendship: Just like Eugene, Fetch joins forces with Delsin after he defeats her in combat.
  • Delinquent Hair: Has dyed pink hair, adding to her outsider image.
  • Energy Weapon: Her favorite offensive application of her neon power.
  • Evil Feels Good: In the Evil version of her quest, she admits that taking her frustrations out on anti-conduit activists is pretty satisfying.
  • Formerly Fat: Downplayed, as Fetch isn’t fat during the events of ’’First Light’’, but she is much curvier and her face is much less gaunt before her descent into substance abuse and stint in Augustine’s facility.
  • Forceful Kiss: Does one with Delsin in the evil path, followed by implied sex.
  • Fragile Speedster: Fast as hell and can dispatch bad guys in a blink of an eye, isn't so resilient to damage though.
  • Freudian Excuse: After she discovered her powers, she had to run away from her own parents after they called the DUP to come after her, became a homeless junkie indebted to drug dealers, and accidentally killed her own brother during a drug lapse. This is her motive for becoming a vigilante serial killer.
  • Heel–Face Turn: Starts out as an antagonist, only to join up with Delsin after he defeats her. If Delsin chooses to take the Good path, he can also redeem Fetch.
  • Hero of Another Story: She is the Player Character in the DLC inFAMOUS: First Light, making her the first female player character in the series.
  • Immodest Orgasm: In the Evil path, when she phones up Delsin after their night together she apologizes for all the lasers at the end.
  • Implied Love Interest: With Delsin, though the implications are much more straightforward on the Evil Karma path. Pretty much confirmed in the good path as well as she mentions waking up and him being gone.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Directly modeled on her voice actress, Laura Bailey.
  • Light 'em Up: Can absorb neon and channel it as raw energy. She's also the original user of the Neon powerset.
  • My God, What Have I Done?: Suffered a not-yet-Heroic BSoD after the Accidental Murder of her brother, making her one of the easiest Conduit captures the D.U.P. ever had.
  • My Greatest Failure: Not explicitly stated, but given her Shrine to the Fallen and obsessive scribbling of Brent's name, it's clear she views her Accidental Murder as one.
  • Not Staying for Breakfast: In both karmic paths, Fetch has to catch up to Delsin through a phonecall later in the day when she wakes up by herself. The Evil path is pretty straightforward on the matter, though the Good path leaves it ambiguous enough to ask "Did They or Didn't They?"
  • Pay Evil unto Evil: She gives this fate to Shane after everything he put her to, and eventually decides to give this fate towards any other drug dealers she encounters as well.
  • Promoted to Playable: After debuting as an important supporting character in inFAMOUS: Second Son, she becomes the playable protagonist of inFAMOUS: First Light.
  • Rapid-Fire Fisticuffs: Rather than using a weapon to channel her powers through like Delsin, Fetch mostly uses her powers to punch people really fast and deliver lethal dropkicks.
  • Roaring Rampage of Revenge: In First Light she tortures Shane to death after all the crap he did to her and her brother. He totally had in coming. After breaking free in Second Son, she becomes a serial killer of drug dealers, taking down at least 21 before Delsin catches up to her.
  • Room Full of Crazy: Both the shrine and the sniper's nest are obsessively covered in Brent's name. The sniper's nest is particularly notable since the grand majority was physically written out, rather than with neon powers.
  • Samus Is a Girl: The news and the Rowe brothers both assume the sniper Conduit is a guy, but then when Deslin gets to her sniper nest, he finds Jane Eyre, boots, and a few pairs of panties hanging from a washing line. He's kind of amused by the realisation.
  • Self-Serving Memory: In the Touch Telepathy flashback in Second Son, she clams that she killed Brent in a fit of paranoia self-induced due to her own drug-addiction. In First Light however, she killed him when suffering through a Mushroom Samba inflicted on her by Shane, Brent's death a complete accident. It is likely that she feels immense guilt for Brent's death and wound up changing the narrative to justify that guilt even more.
  • Serial Killer: Is one of drug dealers when you first meet her, and presumably remains one in the Evil path, having expanded her targets to include anti-Conduit activists as well.
  • Ship Tease: The romantic subtext between her and Delsin isn't exactly subtle, especially in the evil path.
  • Shrine to the Fallen: She made a big one in a locked-off alley, spelling out Brent's name with neon in a room-spanning spiral pattern converging onto said shrine (which is implied to be the impact mark of his Accidental Murder). She also makes neon images of him here and there, including an optical illusion variant at one of her sniper locations.
  • Super Speed: She can use her powers to run incredibly fast, especially if she uses Neon gas to boost herself. In First Light she combines this with high speed punches and kicks.
  • Tomboy with a Girly Streak: If her sniper's nest is any indication, having a power set that turns her into the human embodiment of the color pink probably pleases her more than she'd admit.
  • Unstoppable Rage: With some goading from Augustine and remembering what Shane did to her while he is detained right in front of her, she goes completely berserk and hunts Shane through the snow, only stopping after eventually torturing him to death.
  • Vigilante Woman: She uses her Neon powers to execute drug dealers. However, Good Delsin can convince her to take a much less lethal approach to fighting the illegal drug trade.

Shane's Gang



Shane is a small-time drug lord working out of the docks of Seattle, and embroiled in a losing war against the city's topmost gang the Akurans. After Brent disappears, he helps Fetch finding him. Afterwards, he shows his true colors by kidnapping Brent to force Fetch to continue working for him.

  • A Father to His Men: Despite everything else, he makes it quite clear that he cares about the men that work under him. He even seems more upset about Fetch killing his men than destroying his product. However, he's not above executing minions that betray him such as Jenny.
  • Abhorrent Admirer: Is a predatory one to Fetch, with his first meeting involving him lustfully leering at her and many of his later conversations involve suggestive flirting towards her much to her intense disgust. This behavior stops after Shane decides Fetch is a threat to his operations.
  • Big Bad: Of the First Light DLC.
  • Big Bad Wannabe: While he is the main villain of First Light, compared to the others found he's a small fry whose only major threat because of "Fetch". When Augustine captures him and allows Fetch to execute him, its obvious that he's bitten much more than he can chew.
  • Boisterous Weakling: He talks about his ambitious plans and acts like he's a big shot. However he's just normal human being who doesn't dirty his own hands and get easily dealt with after Augustine captures him and has Fetch execute him.
  • Bullying a Dragon: Shane's manipulations and mistreatment of Fetch backfires on him hard, as he's just a regular human being while Fetch is a superpower Conduit, which leads to Fetch killing him.
  • Catchphrase: "Scout's honor"
  • Contrasting Sequel Antagonist: He differs from past main antagonists in that he's just a regular human being instead of a conduit.
  • The Corrupter: Tries to repeatedly get Fetch to admit Evil Feels Good.
  • Cruel and Unusual Death: Fetch shoots clear through him three times before using her neon power to boil him from the inside out and disintegrating him.
  • Deep South: He hails from Texas and like Hank, he speaks with a heavy accent.
  • Defiant to the End: In his final moments, he still taunts Fetch even when she's killing him.
  • Dirty Coward: He has always ran away and risk the lives of other whenever his own life is in danger. Ironically, when he's aware that Fetch is going to kill him and there's no where left to run nor anyone to sacrifice, he becomes Defiant to the End.
  • Faux Affably Evil: He presents himself as a helpful if somewhat sleazy individual whose goals align with Fetch, but it soon becomes clear that he's not completely honest.
  • Hate Sink: Not only does Shane have no redeeming qualities, he doesn't even have any powers that made the other villains so formidable. With all that and everything he puts Fetch through, it becomes clear that Shane was never meant to be liked.
  • Humans Are the Real Monsters: Despite being just a regular human, he's arguably one of the most despicable villains in the franchise. Aside from being highly racist towards Conduits he emotionally abuses one into doing his biding by holding her brother hostage, and later attempts to kill them both despite already doing Shane's bidding. That's not even getting to the part where he injects her with drugs that causes her to accidentally kill her own brother. In short, he's the perfect example of the kind of humans Augustine wants to keep the Conduits safe from.
  • Ink-Suit Actor: Like Reggie, Shane resembles Travis Willingham, though without Reggie's Native American features, so Shane is closer to how Willingham actually looks.
  • Humiliation Conga: Lets just say it all goes downhill for Shane after she pushes Fetch a bit too far. To summarize his entire criminal empire is destroyed, gets arrested by the DUP despite not being a conduit, is given to by Fetch to personally execute, and tries to escape Fetch running in the cold mountains only for Fetch to catch up to him and give him a slow and excruciating death. Suffice to say he deserves every single moment of it.
  • Karmic Death: He's eventually captured by Augustine and is personally executed by Fetch.
  • Mysterious Backer: He presents himself as Brent's boss and helps Fetch for his own reasons. Afterwards, he decides that he likes having a powerful Conduit on his side.
  • I Have Your Wife: After Fetch deals with the Akurans and rescues Brent, Shane holds him hostage so that she can continue to help him be the kingpin of Seattle.
  • Manipulative Bastard: Everything he did to keep Fetch working for him. Threatens Brent's life if she does not work for him. It did work for a time, until Fetch snapped.
  • Nice Job Fixing It, Villain: Pissing off Fetch to the point she loses total self control in front of him was not a good idea.
  • Non-Action Big Bad: Isn't shown doing any fighting to fight and prefers not to. Though its justified in that Shane's just a regular human being and going up against a conduit, like Fetch, would not be a good idea as Fetch would show him.
  • Oh, Crap!: When Fetch snaps and destroy all the drug in his trucks.
  • Pragmatic Villainy: He's willing to cooperate with someone if it's in his best interest, however when it isn't he's going to abandon that someone.
  • Remember the New Guy?: Shane is never mentioned as part of Fetch's backstory in Second Son. He seems to even lampshade this status when he introduces himself
    Shane: (Proudly) I'm Shane. (beat) Shane?
  • Smug Snake: He thinks he's a criminal mastermind, despite his successes only being in part do to Fetch being his enforcer, and Fetch easily dismantles Shane's success he gets too cocky and tries to dispose of her.
  • Stupid Evil: After using Fetch to build his criminal empire in Seattle do you think Shane would just hand to her brother back and be done with them right? Nope, he decides that to have his men kill her and tricks her into killing her own brother. Unsurprisingly, this causes Shane to loose everything and Fetch giving him a slow and painful death.
  • You Have Failed Me: He kills his hacker Jenny after finding out she's helping Fetch get Brent behind his back.
