- "IN THE CASE THAT YOU HAVE REMOVED 452 BE AWARE THAT YOU ARE ALREADY CONSIDERED EXPIRY UNDER NEW COMPANY POLICY; FACILITY SECURITY PERSONNEL WILL BE REQUIRED TO TAKE AGGRESSIVE ACTIONS AGAINST YOUR PERSON. "
- —Unknown, in the Wyndstrom Institution Employee Handbook.
Unit 452 was first mentioned via a partial copy of the Wyndstrom Insitution Employee Handbook. 452 is a fish who is able to control the mind of a victim through a single case of eye contact. It was suggested as an option for Cursor's plan to free 979 after his capture, but was decided against.
Prior to 2016 Edit
At an unknown date and time, 452 was captured and contained by the Wyndstrom Institution. As of current, it resides in containment, and will remain there for the foreseeable future.
452 has evidently had many incidents with Wyndstrom employees where it had made eye contact and had the employee attempt to bring it to freedom. Enough for guidelines and warnings specifically about it to be put in the employee handbook, and for an entire test on it to be included in employee orientation.
One of these incidents is specifically mentioned in the Notebook we received. An employee, simply known as Carl (a friend of Fred Digby), was implied to be shot multiple times following his attempted release of 452. It was said that the "gunfire [could be heard] across the whole damn block".
Upon eye contact with a victim, 452 is able to control their actions. It is unknown how much control 452 has over the victim, but the mind control is implied to be irreversible as the victim is considered an "expiry". 452 focuses on gaining it's freedom upon gaining control of a victim, but has never succeeded in escaping.
A victim, as described in the handbook, usually stuffs 452 under their jumpsuit (as all victims upon 452's containment have been Wyndstrom employees) and attempts to carry it outside of the institution. All the while, the victim yells "expletives about the fish god".
- It is unknown if 452 is actually a "fish god" as its victims claim, or an ordinary fish with extraordinary abilities.
