Prison Break: the Conspiracy Character Profile: Lincoln Burrows

Prison Break: the Conspiracy is set for a March 30th release on PS3, Xbox 360, and PC. Here is a character profile for Lincoln Burrows.

Lincoln Burrows, often referred to as “Linc” or “Linc the Sink” (a name given to him by other inmates,) is the older brother of Michael Scofield. After their mother passed away, Lincoln took on the responsibility of caring for his brother and became Michael’s guardian. Lincoln endured a tumultuous youth, starting with his dropping out of high school during his sophomore year and leading to a life marred by crime and violence. Even early on, he already had a number of convictions on his rap sheet, including theft, battery and possession of illegal substances.

Lincoln continued looking after his brother even into adulthood. He borrowed money to finance Michael’s college education to the tune of $90.000; not a paltry sum. When Michael wondered how his brother was able to send him to school, Lincoln told Michael that the money came from their mother’s life insurance. However, ultimately the money came from the very source that wound up framing Lincoln for the death of the vice president’s brother, Terrence Steadman.
