Wayne Torrent

Wayne Torrent is the father of Jake Torrent.  Blind since birth, Wayne moved with his son to the small town of Shady Brook, where he was ultimately murdered by resident Nick Ekan.


Wayne Torrent was born in November 1942.  Over the course of his life, he never let his disability stop him from following his dreams.  An extreme introvert, Wayne did well in school, earning a mix of average-to-above-average grades, and he got a job as a banker at the age of eighteen.

Wayne worked his way up the ladder, excelling at the job far more than his colleagues, despite his disability.  Through his work, Wayne met his wife-to-be, a caterer named Brenda, and the two eloped only four months later.

Despite their compulsivity, the couple lived happily together for seventeen years.  Then, one day, when Wayne was 36, his wife informed him that she was pregnant.  Nine months later, Jake Torrent was born.

Wayne was always good to his son, and the two were very close.  Wayne cultivated his son's interest in writing, and the two often went fishing together at a local pond.

After Jake moved out on his own, Wayne began to suffer from some health-related issues, including high blood pressure, which required daily medication to treat, and chose to retire.  Upon his wife's death to cancer in 2005, Wayne's condition worsened, as the grief of losing her became too much to bear.

Shady Brook

In 2005, Wayne agreed to move to the town of Shady Brook with his son, Jake, due to both the low cost of living and the idyllic scenery.

Sadly, Wayne was murdered only three days after their arrival in town by resident Nick Ekan, devastating Wayne's son.
