Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell
Played by:Robert Knepper
Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell was sentenced to life in prison for six counts each of kidnapping, rape and murder. Bagwell spent his youth in and out of jail, often for vandalism and torturing animals. While in the fourth grade he was sentenced to a stint in juvenile hall for attempting to set his teacher's house on fire.
Before being incarcerated at Fox River Penitentiary (the jail featured on Prison Break) T-Bag was on the run for a myriad of crimes including murder, battery, assault, rape, and kidnapping, and was later captured due to an appearance on America's Most Wanted.
While being transferred from Fox River Penitentiary to a Medical Unit for a new prosthetic hand, T-Bag shanks and kills the guard riding with him with a couple of punchers to the neck from his plastic hand which was carved into a blade. To stop the moving vehicle, he uses the guard's gun to shoot through the cab wall and kill the driver while the car careens off the road and into a tree.
After escaping from the crash T-Bag steals the clothes and car of a "Good Samaritan" who stops to help after seeing the wreckage.
On the run, T-Bag assaults two EMTs. He cuts off the arm of one, murders them both, and steals their vehicle.
He then meets and seduces Candace Plum. He drugs her and while she's incapacitated, steals a ring she's wearing then pushes her out of a moving vehicle.
T-Bag assaults, tortures, then murders Wayne Garret and kills Wayne's girlfriend Lorraine. He then tracks down Rodney Johnson. After pistol whipping Rodney, he kidnaps him and pushes him into a rock crusher at a local quarry.
