Origin[edit | edit source]

Alcatraz Island, aka The Rock, is a small island off the San Francisco bay that houses one of the most famous prisons in history. Originally a military garrison that housed prisoners from the Civil War. It was later converted into a federal prison, known for being inescapable. Due to the massive walls mounted with armed guards and search lights, remote location in the bay, and the cold, choppy currants escaping from the prison was nearly impossible. A total of 14 escape attempts were made with none of them being recorded as successful. Those that attempted escape were either recaptured, shot, or drowned. Some of the most infamous inhabitants were Al Capone and Robert Stroud, aka the Birdman of Alcatraz.

Effects[edit | edit source]

When the padlock is secured around a door or another object, the immediate area becomes inescapable to the user's targets. Those that the user wishes to trap will not be able to leave. The only way to stop the lock is to either use the key or to neutralize it.

Collection[edit | edit source]

Collected by Hugo Miller after a tour group became trapped within the walls of the prison for eighteen hours.
