Strife JudgeWolfnick Conv

Judge Wolenick is a character found in prison in Strife. His hand has the only pattern that can be used on a hand scanner to open the prison cells.

SPOILER WARNING: Plot details follow.

After killing the Warden Montag, the prison can be accessed, but the prisoners must still be freed. After wading through the prison, Judge Wolenick is eventually found. He refuses to "lend a hand", so must be killed. After he dies, his severed hand can be picked up and used to open the prison cells. The player can then use the newly found teleporters to return to the base to get a new briefing from Macil.

The use of his hand is somewhat like the use of the hand in the Doom Bible.

Spoilers end here.


  • Ambiguity in the Strife typeface means that his surname could be "Wolenick" or "Wolfnick". The latter is perhaps more likely.
