Just don't take too long clearing out the Hiss. My cat gets... separation anxiety.

–Frederick Langston

Frederick Langston is the Panopticon Supervisor at the Federal Bureau of Control. In charge of the Bureau's collection of Altered Items and Objects of Power, Langston uses unknown rituals to keep the objects calm. When the Hiss invades the Oldest House, Langston has his hands full locating and recovering escaped Altered Items as the Hiss begins to corrupt them.


Langston is a self-professed fan of Alan Wake's work. When he heard that Emil Hartman had been brought in to the Investigations Sector, he attempted to visit Hartman to have his copy of The Creator's Dilemma signed. However, he was not aware that Hartman had become twisted by the Dark Presence and was thus detained and interrogated by FBC officials for attempting to contact a paranatural entity, although he was let off with just a warning and having his copy of the book confiscated.
