Alan Mathison Turing is the co-founder of the Murkoff Psychatric Systems along with his co-worker, Rudolf Wernicke (only in Outlast) and in real life mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and computer scientist. He was highly influential in the development of computer science, giving a formalization of the concepts of "algorithm" and "computation" with the Turing machine, which can be considered a model of a general purpose computer. Turing is widely considered to be the father of theoretical computer science and artificial intelligence. He, along with Rudolf is one of the The Walrider's creators.

Early Life (Outlast)

Wernicke worked with Alan Turing, a scientist who laid the foundation for modern computing and was found guilty of being homosexual, tortured with hormone therapy and comitted suicide due to it in the 50s. When reminiscing about his work with him, Wernicke talks about him and regards him like the love of his life.
