Dead Island Riptide Heroes

John Morgan is a hero in Dead Island Riptide, the fifth hero to join the original four heroes in Dead Island Riptide. John was a Navy cook who grew up on the Banoi archipelago and joined the Australian Navy. He has trained himself - and become a master - in hand-to-hand combat.

John Morgan is first found in the brig of the Australian Defense Force ship, having been jailed because he refused to follow his superiors' orders that he disagreed with. When the ship runs in trouble during the monsoon, John breaks out of jail and eventually washes ashore on Palanai.


[edit] Trivia

  • The following is the official description taken from the Dead Island website:[3]
John Morgan joins the group of survivors in their fight against the Zombies. For years he has trained himself - and become a master - in hand-to-hand combat. His career in the US Navy has not taken off as he originally had envisioned, so he spends his time as a cook on a military ship. Little does he know that he soon can bring his skills to practice when the ship nears the island of Palanai...
  • The following is John Morgan's biography:[4]
My grandfather fought the Japanese here in WW2 and never left. Married a local girl. My father was native born and a Sergeant-Major. So I’m second generation military and from the time I was ten, I wanted to follow in their footsteps. I wanted to be a soldier and protect and defend this country against all enemies. I did my job. I did what I was told. I always followed orders. Until the day they gave me an order I couldn’t follow. You see, it’s hard to describe how it feels when everything you believe in turns out to be a lie. When the people you trusted let the ones you love die.
None of my commanders were born here. None of them knew the land and the people who lived here. None of them had to sacrifice anything. So they made others sacrifice what was dearest to them. I still cannot believe I was the only one to say no. But I was the only one. I was accused of desertion and treason and for that I was to spend the rest of my life in prison. Simply for helping those I had sworn to protect. Well, now I know who the real enemy is and this fight is not over. I swore an oath and as far as I’m concerned, John Morgan is still a soldier.
  • The character was inspired by the more popular fan Dead Island melee mod Fist of the North Star that let players destroy anything with their hands.[5]
  • John Morgan has a wife, Jennifer Ann Morgan, and two daughters who lived in Henderson. According to his recordings, they left the city for the airport, to try and get to Jennifer's aunt's house in Adelaide, Australia.[6]

  6. Collectable_Johndiary009_D: My family is gone. My wife. My two girls. Jen left a note behind for me. Just in case I came looking for them. Apparently, the lines went down and she had no way to contact me. So she packed up the kids and left Henderson for the airport. She's trying to get to Australia. She has an aunt in Adelaide. I just hope to God they weren't on that fucking highway when the army dropped those bombs. If they were caught in that… if the military slaughtered my family… I swear to God I will find out who issued that order and I will put a bullet in their fucking head. Shit, somebody's in here. Back in the girl's room. I'd better check… just in case... Jesus Christ. Was that Mr. Barranca? Was that my goddamn next door neighbor? Oh, Jesus… Jesus, another one. Collectable_Johndiary010_D: My name is John Morgan, a Sergeant in the ADF, and I'm leaving this recording here because I do not trust the army to get it to my wife… if she's even still alive. Whoever finds this, please try to get this to Jennifer Ann Morgan. She's staying with a Mrs. Mary Rogers in Adelaide, Australia. Alright, Jen, this is for you. I just want you to know that… You and the girls… You're everything to me. And I'm so sorry I wasn't there to protect you. That you had to face this alone. This morning… I found a little boy hiding in a car. Couldn't be more than five. His parents must have locked him in there to protect him. Who knows what the hell happened to them. I have decided that I have no choice but to take him to the army base. I have nowhere else to turn. What other option do I have? Jen, it's likely they'll arrest me for going AWOL, but at least if they court-martial me, I can finally tell my side of the story. Tell them what went on. People need to know what happened here! It's okay, son. Shhhh. I'm not mad at you. It's gonna be okay. You're gonna be fine. I promise. Everything's gonna be okay. Good boy.
