Quinton Alverez exists in Michael's memories as that
paranoid, yet dedicated friend at Brookhaven Hospital. He shared
the same experiences, thoughts, and emotions that Michael dwelled
on, yet provided alternate ideas that further heightened his extreme
case of paranoia... the biggest of which being the lack of privacy.
"They're watching us" he would say; they being
the hospital faculty. According to Quinton, the only safe route
is the blind route, where then you would have no evil to speak of.
