So I was researching for a Bioshock Infinite au I was planning on writing, and can we talk about Booker’s entry on the Bioshock Wiki for a sec?
Booker DeWitt is a New Yorker of partial Native American descent , who was born on April 19, 1874. At the age of sixteen, he was part of the 7th Cavalry Regiment of the United States Army, and took part in the Wounded Knee Massacre of 1890. At Wounded Knee, a sergeant had accused him of having Native American lineage in front of the men in his unit. To avoid being stigmatized by his comrades, he scalped Native American victims and burned teepees with people still inside. Due to his gruesome actions, other members of his regiment, including Cornelius Slate, gave him the nickname “The White Injun,” because of his taking trophies from his victims.
Although he was seen as a hero to his fellow soldiers, Booker felt shame and regret for his part in the massacre. After the battle, Booker, fraught with guilt, attended a river baptism led by Preacher Witting to be reborn as a new man and be absolved of his past actions. However, Booker rejected his baptism at the last second, thinking that his sins could not be washed away by a “dunk in the river.”
In January of 1892, Booker became an employee of the Pinkerton’s National Detective Agency. While working as a Pinkerton, Booker garnered a reputation by ending labor strikes with extreme violence. Around this time, he met a woman who shortly after became pregnant. She died while giving birth to a daughter, Anna. This, coupled with his dismissal from the Agency for excessively violent behavior, sent him into a depression. He turned to alcohol and gambling, which drove him far into debt.
Booker later became a private investigator, but his debts persisted. In October of 1893, Robert Lutece came to his office, representing Father Comstock. Comstock set forth an agreement to wipe DeWitt of all debt in exchange for DeWitt’s daughter. Desperate, DeWitt sold Anna to Lutece and Comstock, but, immediately wrought with guilt, Booker pursued the men to retrieve Anna. Booker arrived as the three were about to enter a Tear to another dimension with Rosalind Lutece. As the men and the baby entered the Tear, DeWitt struggled with Comstock to get Anna back. Comstock succeeded in pulling her through the Tear but as the Tear closed, the tip of Anna’s pinky finger was severed.
This dude is an enormous, double decker turd sandwich served with a tall glass of cheep vodka and a heaping helping of questionable decisions for desert. Probably what makes him such an awesome protagonist.
ben would be so good with sarah he’d be so nice and gentle and she’d have a little crush on him but he’d let her down easy because 1) hes too old for her and 2) hes a huge gay homosexual so they would just be super best friends and he would help her with her panic attacks and she would make him smile and stop being so sad :D
too bad they’re both dead

So this awesome Bioshock Infinite themed wallet was made for me by one of my friends. It is created completely out duct tape, has several pockets for cash, cards, even a clear pocket on the right side for a driver’s license or other ID, and some Velcro to help it stay shut. She even has a website where you can order your own. She does all sorts of custom designs for very reasonable prices. Check it out, you won’t be disappointed!
