Dead Island Wiki

Doctor Branden is a character mentioned and heard in Escape Dead Island. He was a doctor working for GeoPharm, working on a cure for cancer, specifically on cancer affecting children. He had a house in the Staff Village where he lived while not at work.

Branden likely came to the island along with most of the employees where he worked with children on a cure for cancer. He had a house in the staff village, like the other scientists, where he kept photographs and drawings that were done of him by the children he was working with. He also had a dedicated laboratory within the GeoPharm Labs itself which had all the equipment he'd need to work on cures and research into cancer. It's unknown what happened to Dr. Branden, as he's not mentioned a lot, but he could be one of Infected you meet in the lab complex.

Trivia[]

  • A Shambler can be found sitting on the sofa in his house, but it's unknown if that is Branden or not.
  • Alternatively, he could be the Butcher or one of the other zombies in his lab inside the main labs complex.
  • We can't know if Dr. Branden was aware of the research being conducted on the virus that was going on here, but since he has a few x-rays and files on it in his lab, it's likely that he knew of it, if not knowing its true purpose.
  • Postcard 12 mentions a lab tech who was trading files on Dr. Branden, but it's not known what these files are. They could be files incriminating Branden or something else. These files are never found by Cliff when he enters the labs.
  • The Mole is likely Dr. Branden, as the mole was working in Dr. Branden's Lab prior to being assassinated by Rob. This could further explain how the Palm Garden Order (PGO) became aware of the mole's presence as the lab tech of postcard 12 trades files on Dr. Branden to an unknown party, likely being the PGO.
