Episode Two - "Out of Time" Edit

Prior to the events of October 7, 2013, Kate attended a Vortex Club party where she became intoxicated. When a video of her actions during her intoxication was uploaded online via YouTube, news of it eventually reached her family.

While Richard's wife and his sister, "Auntie Marsh", were quick to shame Kate for what they saw in the video, he was more supportive of Kate. Richard sent her a postcard quoting John 1:5 as a way of telling her that she is his "light against the dark".[1]

"And the light shines in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it not.
— John 1:5"

Katie, you'll always be my brightest light against the dark.

When Kate attempts to commit suicide on the girls dormitory rooftop, Max may mention Richard as a way to bring her down from the ledge. Upon the mention of her father, Kate mentions that she's been "horrible" to him, but he was always there for her.

Episode Three - "Chaos Theory" Edit

At Chloe's house, Max receives a text message from Kate if she was able to save her earlier. Kate thanks Max for reaching to her on the roof and trying to help her. Kate believed Max was sent to help her for a reason when no else cared to and gave her hope. Kate includes her father, Richard, among the individuals thankful for helping her and told her that she would always be in their prayers. Max responds to the message immediately and told Kate that she would visit her when she got the chance.

If Kate succeeds in committing suicide, Richard will send Max a text message that registers as "unknown". Richard thanks Max for attempting to save his daughter's life, complementing her heroism and "grace" for trying to deal with a situation that he believed was not in the control of either Max or his daughter. Richard believed that, while Kate had left "for another world", she would always be with them and wanted Max to live a full life.

Trivia Edit

  • Kate's sisters and her father are two optional dialog choices that are thought to be the deciding choices on whether or not Kate will attempt suicide.
