 Characters 

Geena
Alex's girlfriend and a member of the Takata Team. She heard a voice compel her to unlock the combination of the Hartshorne Tower. She jumped off but Alex managed to open her Para-Glider and she landed safely.

Hunter, Alex
Alex's younger brother. When he was 10 years old he set fire to their bedroom in an attempt to kill Allen who he was jealous of. Allen survived and saved Alex from his own fire. Alwx dropped out of college and faked his credentials to join the Takata team. He jumped from the Hartshorne Tower alongside the Lemmings to try and discover what happened to Allen and survived due to Takata's para-glider. He later realised the Tower was a Condemnation Box and returned with Geena. They both lept off but he saved her life by pulling her rip-cord before falling through the Schism himself. He landed in Hell where Allen met him as a Cenobite.

Hunter, Allen / Hunter
Alex's older brother. He saved Alex from a fire in their childhood home that resulted in him being badly burnt and losing his left eye. He doesn't believe in Hell "except for Hell on Earth" but believes the Lament Configuration "opens the way into another world." He jumped off the Gulf Shore Tower and disappeared. He crossed into Hell and was made into a Cenobite with a glowing yellow eye where his empty socket had been. He greeted Alex when he arrived.

Lemmings
