Look I'd love to stay and chat, but I've gotta find some place safe.
― Lou, to Cole.

Lou Purgon is an engineer and friend of Roger Miller in Empire City. After the Blast in Empire City, Lou did his best to keep things running, but was eventually captured by the Reapers.


Early life[]

Not much is known about his early life, but when working as a city engineer, Lou became friends with Roger Miller.

When Cole MacGrath enlisted Roger's aid in fixing the Stone Canal Bridge that linked the Neon and Warren districts, Roger found that the bridge was so badly damaged that he was unable to repair it alone. Calling Lou, Roger explained that "the #4 hydraulic on the south side of SC isn't engaging" and that he needed his help. Lou replied that he was in the park, but refused to leave, as the park was swarming with Reapers.

Cole tracked Lou to Memorial Park where he was being held by three Reapers. After defeating Lou's captors and confirming that Roger had sent him, Cole asked the engineer what the Reapers wanted with him. Lou explained how the Reapers were planning on trading him to the Dust Men, who wanted engineers to work on their tower. Once Cole had escorted him to the drawbridge's control panel, Lou was able to help Roger successfully repair the bridge, before leaving to find a safe place to hide.


  • Lou is never mentioned or seen again during the remainder of inFamous.
  • It can be assumed that Lou died when the Beast attacked Empire City.
