Tollevue as seen in an issue of The New York Orb.

Tollevue is a mental hospital in New York City that has figured significantly into the plot of There's Something in the Sea. At the beginning of Phase Two, Mark Meltzer was temporarily forced to stay there after his daughter was kidnapped by the Big Sister. Later, in the course of his investigations to find his daughter, Mark discovered that RØd Killian Quain, an alias of Orrin Oscar Lutwidge, was being kept at Tollevue after Celeste Roget bribed local officials to ensure he never get out. Mark faked a mental illness to get back in and speak to Quain. During their stays at Tollevue both Mark and Quain were seen by Dr. Howard Lyman, who acted as their primary psychiatrist.

In January 1969, Lutwidge escaped from Tollevue, fatally wounding one orderly in the process.

Case HistoryEdit

TOLLEVUE HOSPITAL
New York, NEW YORK


CASE HISTORY: QUAIN, Rod Killian


Rod Killian Quain states he was born September 3, 1906 in the City of New

York. Details have not been substantiated as Quain appears to have no

personal records.


Mr. Quain's account of his youth is garbled and incomplete. He has refused

to reveal anything except an early fascination with Lewis Carroll.


Quain claims to have been a successful inventor who was betrayed by an

associate named "Ryan." Quain vowed to track down Ryan and apparently acted

to make sure others (notably "the Frenchwoman") didn't find him first.

Quain claims to have followed "Ryan" to an area he calls alternately

"Rapture," "Utropolis" and "Wonderland." His descriptions of this location

are riddled with obvious delusions.


Quain claims to have fallen in with a gang he calls "The Splicers." The

gang seems to have been primarily involved in obtaining and consuming a

substance alternately known by various street names (e.g., "Plasmid",

"ADAM", and what may be various "brand" names - "Electro-bolt," etc.) It

appears that this substance was injected. It is presumed the substance is a

hallucinogen or narcotic, though Quain associates it with certain unbeliev-

able properties (e.g. "telekinesis").


During his period in "Rapture" / "Wonderland" etc., Quain appears to have

been involved in some kind of gang warfare with rival factions of "Splicers."

He purports to have taken the lives of numerous individuals. Further

accounts describe violent encounters with "Little Sisters" and "Daddies."


If his accounts are to be believed, Quain may be responsible for dozens of

homicides.


DIAGNOSIS:

Schizophrenia (Paranoid)
Psychotic Behavior
Narcotics Abuse / Dependence

Hospital.
The inmate, Orrin O. Lutwidge (alias Rod K.

Quain), age 61, is believed to be at large and
may still be in possession of a knife used in the
attack. Authorities advise that he is to be consid-
ered armed and extremely dangerous. Police
have established a hotline number for leads and
updates on this case.

Stango, contact the police information hotline at

Behind the ScenesEdit

  • The name "Tollevue" was inspired by a real life hospital in New York City named "Bellevue,"[1] which was well known for its psychiatric facilities. The image of Tollevue shown in the New York Orb newspaper article is actually an image of the front of Bellevue.[2] The connection between the two names is likely a reference to Ernest Hemingway's famous novel "For Whom the Bell Tolls."
