― Wadsworth[src]

Wadsworth was a spectator to the Rapture Civil War between Atlas and Ryan. He planned to stay out of the war and make his fortune by scavenging large amounts of ADAM. He was evidently killed by a Big Daddy, when he tried to feed a Little Sister lollipops, hoping to make her gather ADAM for him.
