About The Warden

The Warden’s father was also a prison warden who was so dedicated to his work that his son (The Warden) had his bedroom as a prison cell. His father was horrifically brutal as a disciplinarian, which has no doubt shaped The Warden’s narcissistic personality.

After his father’s death, he inherited a prison. However, the traditional jail system didn’t suit his increasingly warped ideas, so he created Superjail – a place he could run exactly how he wanted to. Throughout the series The Warden he seems to take great delight in terrorizing the prisoners and everybody around him, and due to his technical genius, many of his schemes come to fruition regardless of how twisted they are.

Although he is in control of Superjail and should be trying to maintain order, that is the last thing on his mind – he loves the killings which occur and he never misses a planned execution.
