Warden Montag is a character from Strife. He is the commander of the prison which the player must visit early in the game in order to free a large number of peasants held captive by The Order. The in-game dialogue makes him out to be somewhat sadistic; he has no problem torturing his prisoners or cooperating with hideous experiments if it furthers The Order's goals. Within the level in which he is encountered, he has no real dialogue and serves little purpose - talking to him immediately activates the alarms within the compound. His main function in the game is to serve as a small part of the backstory and provide a needed key when killed.
