Prisoner 16

Franklin now deep into his work at a Government Owned Laboratory in the Amazon is awaiting the arrival of special cargo which he is to oversee the examination of.  Newly stationed at the Lab is Government Security Officer Rex Lincoln who Franklin takes a liking to and befriends.

Shortly after the Government deliver the cargo which is a large steel crate labelled "Prisoner 16" along with a Chucky Wonder; a Senior Science Advisor who immediatley takes a disliking to both Franklin and Rex and orders that no one is to tamper with the crate and refuses Franklin's orders to aid in the examination.

Over time, another Security Guard named Stewie Swanson tampers with the crate and begins to slowly slip into madness, attempting to kill all the staff members at the Lab but is locked inside a cell.  Franklin becomes curious and attempts to see what exactly is in the crate only to hear horrible voices in his head ordering him to free it.  He is stopped by Rex who knocks him out.  When he awakens he tells Rex that the thing inside the crate has some sort of hypnotic power.
