Horace P. Gauge is a character in the horror video-game, The Suffering.
Horace was first sent to Carnate Island after an alleged assault charge, and became one of the many Abbott inmates. Whilst he did his time Horace was driven mad by the influence of the island, and became paranoid about what would happen to his wife while he was not able to protect her whilst in jail. He mananged to persuade the COs to allow a conjungal visit, and during that time had sexual intercourse with her. Afterwards, he gave in to madness and murdered her, as he felt that the only way to ensure she was protected from the world was to kill her, calling it a "crime of passion". He was then condemned to the electrical chair, and his spirit is forced to relive his execution time and time again. Horace represents the present.
