John Smith (former boss)
Benedict is a major recurring character featured in the second season of Eden Rising. Reserved, paranoid, Benedict isn't your typical right-hand man, he just knows his place and wants somewhere to stay. John Smith sees him as a shining example, Benedict doesn't ask too many questions and follows orders, meaning that he was one of few who knows about the raffles, the Red Zone, and was the one who lead the victims to their fate in the monastery's basement, where they are fed to John's deceased zombie family.
Benedict hides his own secret that could jeopardize his place in the Last Chance Society... he is a homosexual and his boyfriend is Reggie, a man who is placed in the Red Zone. When Father Warden uses Gareth to blackmail Benedict for his sexuality, his judgment begins to grow cloudy and he begins to slowly turn away from the Society as a whole. Reggie dies due to starvation, and Benedict begins to feel guilty. He contemplates suicide, but finds a higher calling when Ivy reveals her and Gareth's plan to keep baby Adam protected during the civil war that breaks out between Warden's supporters and Smith's supporters. She calls to him for help.
Benedict assists her and plans to take a convoy of people and escape the Last Chance Society and start up living elsewhere, to avoid conflict.
