"This is my chapter and I can write it any way I want to!"

Jordan "Jordy" Raines was a prison guard-turned killer and one of Joe Carroll's followers. He had a "very low IQ."



Jordan worked at the prison where Joe was incarcerated. The same year, over time, Joe got to him and manipulated him in giving him unlimited computer access, which he used to create a website to create his cult following. Joe later gave him a book in which he wrote he had potential (in killing). Wanting to become a serial kill, he started off killing several dogs in the same manner Joe killed his victims in 2003 in his home, then putting them in garbage bags and discussed Joe's plan along with Emma, Paul, Jacob, Rick and Maggie in Emma's plan


Jordan Raines acted as one of Joe Carroll's followers. At a sorority, he poses as a police officer and asks a student if it is okay if he checks the doors and windows. She agrees and lets him inside. ("Pilot")

Once inside, he follows her up to her room, shuts the door, and kills her in addition to two other students living at the sorority with knives from a "toolkit" he tossed through a window in advance. He stabs the victims, gouges out the eyes of some of them and writes "Nevermore" on the wall in copycat acts based on Carroll. He then proceeds to Claire Matthews' house, where he attempts to kill her, but not before Ryan Hardy shoots him and he is apprehended by the FBI. He is then taken to the Virginia Central Penitentiary. ("Chapter Two")

While in the hospital, he refuses to give any information and mocks them, stating though he'll die, it was worth it. He agrees to talk with Debra on the grounds he'll get to talk with Joe, but is tricked into giving up Maggie as a follower. Believing he betrayed Joe, he chokes himself to death by swallowing his own bandages. ("The Poet's Fire")
