Total Estimated Power Rating: 8
4 Base Intellect Points + 3 Base Physical Power Points + 1 Weapon Point for the pistol
Power Level: Medium. Lt. Thompson is not a superman. He is a tough guy with a big gun, but many years of alcoholism have decimated his physique to such a level, that even nerdy psychiatrists started to bully him around.
Identification: If you see a guy in police uniform drinking alone in a dive bar it’s probably Lt. Thompson... or some other alcoholic cop… or just some dude in police uniform. Anyways, if you are looking for Lt. Thompson specifically - ask Nancy, she knows every watering hole her daddy frequents.
How to Recruit: Grab him by his jacket, slam him against wall and say something like: “I don’t know if you care if your daughter lives or dies, but I do. We are going for a little ride...” – this simple technique works like magic every time.
How to Stay on His Good Side: Lt. Thompson doesn’t have many good sides. Or at least he is not prone to showing them to strangers. Deep inside he does love his daughter very much and you can try to use this fact to your advantage, but make sure you buy him a round of drinks to sweeten the pot. Bullying him into doing things works just as well however.
What to Look Out For: Make sure you keep the car keys with you at all times. If he gets his hands on them he will simply drive off and let you deal with Freddy alone.
