Rapture was a city that attracted the world's best and the brightest, or at least people who had come under the spell of Andrew Ryan's economic philosophy. There was a vast assortment of people who came to Rapture: from artists to scientists, from engineers to athletes. Below is a list of known citizens of Rapture who appeared in, or were mentioned in, BioShock.
Epstein - one of Diane McClintock's comrades on Atlas' raid for ADAM. He was killed trying to get his hands on the Little Sister. He is also the possible owner of Epstein the Swami machines.
Faith Farthingworth - Died April 14, 1942. Daughter of Horace and Jennifer Farthingworth. Her name is found on the head stones in the Tea Garden (Date of death contradicts the creation of Rapture unless her grave was moved to the city after its construction).
