Heartless — that's what this town is…
― Moses Lydecker[src]

Moses Lydecker was a citizen of Rapture. He was hired by Andrew Ryan to help turn Fontaine's Department Store in a prison.


Just before the prisoners were moved to the prison, a malfunctioning Turret destroyed both of his kneecaps, crippling him. Disabled, he was left behind when the other people hired by Ryan left. Lydecker did his best to avoid conflict with the prisoners, so he hid in a ventilation system in the Menswear department and later barricaded himself behind locked doors in the Ladieswear's Shoestore. He sent numerous Audio Diaries through the Pneumo Lines back to Rapture, but to no avail, as they were all sent back to him reading "Insufficient Postage".

Booker DeWitt and Elizabeth comes across some of his audio diaries on their journey, one of which tells them his current location: the Shoestore in Ladiesware. With the code for the door from one of his audio diaries, Booker and Elizabeth enter. They find Lydecker's corpse, sprawled out on the ground, and it's unclear if he committed suicide before a Splicer got to him or if he bled out from other injuries.
