Prison Break was a visual representation of Ratonhnhaké:ton's genetic memories from an Apple of Eden-induced reality.


Ratonhnhaké:ton had been brought to Boston. Beyond his prison walls awaited enemies, friends, and an unlikely ally.


Ratonhnhaké:ton was locked in a prison within Boston. A Bluecoat was seated next to a table outside his cell, carving a trapezoid into the table's surface while muttering to himself.

  • Bluecoat: Our beacon! ... Yes, yes. Our beacon. It watches over us. We love our King. He watches over ... us!

Israel Putnam walked in alongside George Washington and Benjamin Franklin. Seeing them enter, the Bluecoat quickly dropped the knife, grabbed his rifle, and stood at attention.

  • Putnam: I've got a present for you, Your Highness.
  • Washington: A present?
  • Putnam: I think you'll be rather pleased.
  • Washington: How very thoughtful, Putnam. Do you know any of this, Mister Franklin?
  • Franklin: No, it's news to me. What sort of present, General Putnam?
  • Putnam: The best sort. Come see!

Putnam walked toward Ratonhnhaké:ton's cell and gestured to the Bluecoat.

  • Putnam: Rouse him!

The Bluecoat rattled the bars of Ratonhnhaké:ton's cell and stepped aside.

Prison Break 2

Washington, Franklin and Putnam conversing

  • Putnam: It's the one you blasted point blank in the village, sire.
  • Washington: Really? He survived? Remarkable.

Franklin tried to attract Washington's attention with his own prisoner while walking towards a nearby cell. However, Washington's attention remained on Ratonhnhaké:ton.

  • Franklin: Yes, well, I've captured one myself, sire. In the next cell. A savage who joined that traitor, Sam Adams.

Washington walked away from Ratonhnhaké:ton's cell but did not look at Franklin.

  • Washington: Have them both beheaded, along with a score of citizens taken at random, as an example to all.
  • Franklin: Random citizens? Isn't that rather harsh, Your Majesty?

Washington put on a stunned look and turned to address Franklin while walking towards him. Franklin avoided eye contact.

  • Washington: "Harsh," sir!? Is it harsh to defend our freedoms? Is it harsh to extinguish those who would enslave us? Mr. Franklin, I suggest you examine your commitment to the cause, sir!
  • Franklin: Yes, yes, of course, Your Majesty.
  • Washington: Have the scaffolds made ready.
  • Franklin: My Liege.

Benjamin Franklin bowed and turned to leave the room. Washington watched him leave and began to address Putnam. He then walked back to Ratonhnhaké:ton's cell.

  • Washington: Putnam, I fear Mr. Franklin is going soft. See to it that this so-called rebellion is crushed, and I'll consider rearranging just who is in charge.
  • Putnam: I already have a plan, My Lord.

Washington turned to Ratonhnhaké:ton.

  • Washington: As for you... Let's see how you survive with the loss of your head! Eh? Carry on, Putnam!
  • Putnam: Yes, Your Highness.

As Washington left the prison, the Bluecoat saluted.

  • Putnam: Stay sharp, soldier!

Putnam followed Washington out and the Bluecoat began muttering to himself once more.

  • Bluecoat: Over us, he watches. Our beacon watches.
    Our beacon watching over us.
    Our beacon, our beacon. He is.

Ratonhnhaké:ton hit the bars of his cell.

  • Bluecoat: Don't you dare try anything! I've got my eye on you, I do.

Ratonhnhaké:ton hit the bars of his cell once more.

  • Bluecoat: You'll have a nice view tomorrow, with your head up high on a pike and all!

Ratonhnhaké:ton activated Wolf Cloak. The Bluecoat panicked and quickly beckoned for another guard to lend assistance.

  • Bluecoat 1: Help! He's escaped! I need help!
  • Kanen'tó:kon: What's going on?
  • Bluecoat 1: Shut up, you! Help!
  • Bluecoat 2: What's happened?
  • Bluecoat 1: He was here, then gone! There must be a hole or something.

The Bluecoats opened the cell and Ratonhnhaké:ton slipped out, locking the two guards inside.

  • Kanen'tó:kon: Hey! Anyone alive? Get me out of here!

Ratonhnhaké:ton approached the adjacent cell.

  • Kanen'tó:kon: Ratonhnhaké:ton?
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Kanen'tó:kon! Alive? ... Oh, my friend, I cannot believe you're here!
Prison Break 6

Ratonhnhaké:ton reunited with Kanen'tó:kon

The two shook hands through the bars of Kanen'tó:kon's cell.

  • Kanen'tó:kon: And you! They said you have been killed. Along with your mother.
  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: The Clan Mother brought me to health. Kanen'tó:kon, I was unable to protect my mother. I was unable to save the village.
  • Kanen'tó:kon: I'm very sorry, Ratonhnhaké:ton. It has been difficult here as well. I fight with Sam Adams' rebels, but we are too few and too weak. But hurry! Get me out!

Ratonhnhaké:ton nodded and began searching for the key to Kanen'tó:kon's cell.

  • Kanen'tó:kon: Washington is enslaving the people and looting everything. He ships the slaves and treasure to New York to build his palace. The rebels tried to free some slaves, but we were ambushed and I was captured.
  • Bluecoat 1: We're locked in!
  • Bluecoat 2: How'd you let that happen?
  • Bluecoat 1: It wasn't me!
  • Bluecoat 2: Christ! The King'll have our heads for this.
  • Bluecoat 1: But he watches over us!
  • Bluecoat 2: Shut it, would ya!

Ratonhnhaké:ton found the key and freed Kanen'tó:kon.

  • Kanen'tó:kon: Thank you for getting me out of there. Get what you need, then we'll go.

Ratonhnhaké:ton retrieved his bow and quiver from a table.

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: This is not everything.

Ratonhnhaké:ton opened a door leading to a warehouse.

  • Bluecoat 1: Help! He's escaped! I need help!
Prison Break 7

Ratonhnhaké:ton in the warehouse

  • Ratonhnhaké:ton: Wait here. I will let you through when it is clear.

Several groups of Bluecoats conversed as Ratonhnhaké:ton moved through the warehouse.

  • Bluecoat 3: General Putnam is on another tear.
  • Bluecoat 4: Best to lay low.
  • Bluecoat 3: Had a man whipped for not shaving properly.
  • Bluecoat 4: That fellow got off easy.
  • Bluecoat 5: The King himself, here in Boston!
  • Bluecoat 6: Makes me nervous.
  • Bluecoat 5: It's our chance to distinguish ourselves in his eyes!
  • Bluecoat 6: Makes me very nervous.
  • Bluecoat 7: I'm in a pickle.
  • Bluecoat 8: How's that?
  • Bluecoat 7: Commander Franklin wants curfew imposed at ten o'clock, but then General Putnam told me to start at nine.
  • Bluecoat 8: You're mincemeat, my friend.
  • Bluecoat 7: Franklin is harsh, but Putnam is crazy. I better start at nine.

Ratonhnhaké:ton made his way to a room containing his equipment.

  • Bluecoat 9: Look at this rubbish we brought back. Useless!
  • Bluecoat 10: It's spoils of war now!
  • Bluecoat 9: The owner put up a hell of a fight.
  • Bluecoat 10: Old black geezer with the cane?
  • Bluecoat 9: That's the fella!

Ratonhnhaké:ton eliminated the guards and retrieved his equipment.


Ratonhnhaké:ton escaped his cell, freed Kanen'tó:kon and recovered his equipment.
