No order without chaos.
~ Doc Eminess

Richard Eminess is a minor antagonist in Penumbra: Black Plague.


Eminess was originally a genius scientist with a questionable amount of sanity who encountered the player, Philip, in the computer room. However just a few minutes of conversation led to Richard being possessed and infected by the Tuurngait virus, making him become a mindless hostile humanoid. One must escape the evil entity by sprinting and hiding before thwarting his plans of killing you by locking him out of your location.


  • Eminess is voiced by Sam A. Mowry, who later went on to voice Alexander from Amnesia: The Dark Descent.
