Foreman F. Stafford is a supporting character in Amnesia: The Bunker. He was a French soldier stationed at a frontline bunker during World War I. He was responsible for the Maintenance area and oversaw the overall logistics of the bunker, including rationing and maintenance.

History[]

Early life[]

Stafford was likely born somewhere in France. He was presumably conscripted or volunteered for the war as a soldier in the French Army and sent to the front to help repel the advance of the German Army. He was assigned to the engineering corps and was made the chief engineer in the bunker. Stafford was referred to by the title of "Foreman," but his actual rank is unmentioned. At some point in time, he and his unit were stationed at or transferred to the bunker. Stafford was in charge of supply distribution and rationing, such as stocking up on wine, as well as general maintenance on the infrastructure.[2][3]

Events preceding Amnesia: The Bunker[]

Sometime after the bunker was built and the electrical apparatus installed, Stafford wrote a notice to the enlisted men, informing them that the power in the barracks was daisy chained, and that any pranks would be reported to Sgt. Reynard.[3] At the same time, grates with special screws were installed all across the bunker, most likely to provide ventilation.[4]

On May 20th, Sdt. Chanard wrote to Stafford about on the apparent change in the rats infesting the bunker since the opening of the Roman Tunnels.[5] Stafford's response isn't known. On June 15th, Comdt. Fournier sent a letter to Stafford, admonishing him for his failure in securing more wine for the bunker's officers and the garrison and telling him to fix it.[2]

It is unknown how involved Stafford was in dealing with the Beast; however, he managed to survive the initial series of deaths. Sometime during the fall of the bunker, Stafford's friend Gavin was killed by the Beast.[1] Stafford then wrote a letter apologizing to his friend for incinerating his corpse as a final act of preserving his dignity in death, as fire was the only thing that permanently deterred the mutated rats that had begun swarming over the dead and dying in the bunker.[1] Stafford then decided to visit the pillbox, which Gavin had suggested earlier, possibly as a means of suicide by sniper or attempting to get out through the opening.[1]

Events of Amnesia: The Bunker[]

Stafford can be found dead in the Pillbox, having been shot through the eye by a German sniper. From his body, Henri can retrieve his dog tag and open up his locker at Mission Storage to acquire his wrench, an essential tool to help in his escape.

Description[]

Personality[]

Not much is known about Stafford, but he seemed a responsible man who valued his comrades, showing great remorse in having to incinerate the body of his friend Gavin.

Physical appearance[]

Stafford was a middle-aged man, with short brown hair, a brown mustache, and an average physique.

Apparel[]

Stafford wore the standard uniform of a French soldier, albeit with the red collar marks to signify his status as an engineer.

Trivia[]

  • Stafford is the only character directly shown to have been killed by German forces rather than by the Beast.
  • Stafford, along with Friloux, Delisle, and Lambert, is one of 4 to have his dog tags permanently attached to their body/location on each playthrough with no chance of randomization.
  • Stafford was shot through his right eye, and his brains subsequently spilled out unto a crate on the right side. However, in the pillbox there's a blood splatter running across the left wall facing from the window slit, calling into question the exact manner in which Stafford met his end. Though, it's equally likely the blood is from earlier warfare prior to the bunker's events.
