From FEDRA to WLF?

In the video game, we don’t get Isaac Dixon’s Federal Disaster Response Agency (FEDRA)’ back story. We only know him as one of the founding members of the Washington Liberation Front (the WLF also known as the Wolves) who rebel against FEDRA’s tight control over Seattle’s Quarantine Zone after a global fungal pandemic.

The set at East Georgia Street and Jackson Avenue in east Vancouver looked like the game’s Seattle with Washington State plates on the abandoned cars and a school bus blocking a FEDRA armoured car.

Who is the actor below? Is this the founder of the Seraphite cult — later known as The Seraphite Prophet?

What is The Last of Us?

Season One of The Last of Us took place 20 years after modern civilization had been destroyed by a fungal pandemic. Joel (Pedro Pascal), a hardened survivor, was hired to smuggle teen Ellie (Bella Ramsey) out of an oppressive quarantine zone. What started as a small job soon became a brutal, heartbreaking journey as they both traversed across the U.S. and depended on each other for survival.

At the end of season one, Joel and Ellie headed back to Jackson, Wyoming, a walled community of survivors from the fungal pandemic led by Joel’s brother Tommy Miller (Gabriel Luna) and sister-in-law Maria (Rutina Wesley).

In season 2, we will meet some new characters In Jackson like Ellie’s new friend Dina (Isabela Merced) and scout Jesse (Young Mazino).

We will also meet a group of former Fireflies who join Isaac (Jeffrey Wright)’s Washington Liberation Front (WLF) in Seattle: soldier Abby Anderson (Kaitlyn Dever), who’s seeking vengeance for someone she loved, soldier Manny (Danny Ramirez), doctor Mel (Ariela Barer), military medic Nora (Tati Gabrielle) and Owen (Spencer Lord).

Kaitlyn Dever is soldier Abby Anderson.

Danny Ramirez is soldier Manny; Ariela Bare is doctor Mel, Tati Gabrielle is military medic Nora and Spencer Lord is Owen.

We’ve already seen the Washington Liberation Front (WLF) in action in Vancouver.

A convoy of twelve military vehicles patrolled two downtown blocks dressed as the game’s Seattle Center in early May.
