Downpour is the story of Murphy Pendleton, a mysterious prisoner who was arrested after leading police on a chase across state borders. At the beginning of the game, Murphy is allowed by correctional officer George Sewell (who looks seriously untrustworthy with those high cheekbones and thin face) into the showers, where another prisoner, Patrick Napier, has just finished showering.
Murphy approaches Napier and asks if he remembers him. “We used to be neighbors.”
Murphy then kills Napier.
Next, after a riot breaks out at the prison, Murphy is placed under the care of Anne Cunningham, who is hostile towards him. Murphy was in the process of being transported to another penitentiary when the vehicle crashes near Silent Hill, where he tries to make an escape…
