Top Ten Prison Break Characters

The Top Ten
1 Theodore 'T-Bag' Bagwell

T-Bag is the worst of the worst a racist who has no reservations about abusing and even killing kids which stems from living with a sexually abusive father who made him feel like a freak T-Bag betrays multiple people in the series but is capable of showing loyalty to certain people such as his ex girlfriend susan Hollander and his son Whip despite these faults T-Bag is talented at charming ladies though he never stopped caring for susan seen when he kills a woman just for insulting her and when he lets her go after she tells him she doesn,t love him. In Breakout kings T_Bag admits to killing because it fills him with self worth It,a incredible how the writers talentedly portray this evil character sympathetically especially in season 5 when he does everything in his power to stop Poseidon agreeing to kill him as he felt Poseidon deserved to die and it didn,t matter if he threw away his freedom

Definitely T-Bag. Carefully articulated his moves. Slippery as a snake. Man this guy blew the show out the roof top. I would rank Mahone/Abruzzi/Brad Bellick for the second spot. Bellick rocked in uniform and inside the mexican jail was really funny. But Brad dying scene was very emotional. Abruzzi tone and body language in prison is damn cool gangster type.That rocks. Mahone was the addict cop. We can relate to it in our real lives. Overall T-Bag for the craziest, greatest natural actor.

T-Bag is very scary guy. He should be first. Second: Fernando Sucre, Third: John Abruzzi, fourth: Charles "D. B Cooper" Westmoreland, fifth: Aleksander Mahone, sixth: Lincoln "Linc the sink" Burrows and seventh: Brad Bellick. Michael was too much in the headrole.

Definitely the most complex character on the show, you hated him at least once and loved him back 1000 times!

2 Michael Scofield Michael J. Scofield, played by Wentworth Miller, is a fictional character and one of the two protagonists of the American television series Prison Break.

Well, not the greatest acting chops but good enough to pull off an incredibly interesting character, plus not exactly hard on the eyes.

He literally tattooed an escape plan onto his body, and then used it to break his brother out of Foxriver--a prison thought to be unbreakable. Who else is going to beat him?

Damn, he's such a good-looking genius, who doesn't like him? Plus, he gets himself into prison on purpose to save his brother's life

The thinking of scofield was amazing.

3 Alexander Mahone

Intelligent and determined just like Michael. He is very good at the job he does. He I ready to sacrifice anything for his family.

Best Character development on the show. He matched Scofield's genius and later became a dedicated 'crimininal' bound to helping take down the company. all he ever did was kill criminals to save his family

William Fichtner...'enough said. One of the beet and most versatile character actors around.

He is genius and creepy and also atracttive. I like him on season 2

4 Paul Kellerman

Paul Kellerman grew up resenting his father and mother but was nothing but loyal and good to his sister kristine Kellerman served in the golf war where he met close friend Danny Hale the men were re United as partners in the secret service which was when Kellerman became close to vice President Caroline Reynolds who Kellerman obeyed without question he and Hale then framed Lincoln Burrows for Terrence steadman,s murder Kellerman and Hale then killed innocent people to ensure the truth wasn,t uncovered and Lincoln was sentenced to death including Bishop Mcmorrow who,we only crime was opposing the death penalty Kellerman,s most villainous act was framing Lincoln,s son LJ Burrows for the murders of his mother and stepfather Lisa and Adrian Rix. after Hale betrays Kellerman by giving his name on a list of conspirators to Veronica Donovan Kellerman shows his first sign of guilt before killing Hale. after the Fox river Eight escape Kellerman decides on using sar a Tancredo to track Michael ...more

He is very good on what he does. In the beginning he is is a pro killer that kills innocent people but than he realises everything and he become very useful for Lincoln and Sara freedom.

I knew he was alive. He's like Mahone times a billion

Kellerman framed someone for murder killed his lifelong friend Daniel Hale threatened a kid with a gun as well as trying to use warden popes affair to blackmail him still can,t get enough of him

5 Fernando Sucre

A loyal friend and a person that gives every thing for the woman that he loves

Love this guy. His presence added so much to this show.

He is always there when Michael and Lincoln need him.

Sucre came in the clutch more than any other surporting character

6 John Abruzzi

Abruzzi was an AmericAn Italian mob boss incarcerated for conspiracy to murder on Otto fibonacci,s testimony following this Abruzzi became obsessed with finding and killing Fibonacci forming an uneasy alliance with Michael scofeild to do so part of his motive to do so was that his family was under threat from Philly falzone if Abruzzi did not kill Fibonacci. Abruzzi would exact revenge on those who betrayed him cutting out Gus Fiorello,s eye when he tried to usurp Abruzzi,s position as head of PI as well as working with Michael to trick Philly into getting himself arrested. despite these ruthless actions Abruzzi had a sense of honour arguing against his teammate T-Bag,s decision to kill Bob Hudson as Bob was an innocent man.T-Bag told his cousin James Bagwell of the escape attempt so he would not be kicked out of the team Abruzzi fingered this by ordering his friend Maggio to kidnap James when this led to the death of James,s son n Abruzzi converted to Christianity filled with remorse ...more

Is a cool mafia boss that can turn every situation in his favor. He is a very good parent and husband.

Charismatic character, a lovely rewind of the great mafia movies of the past.

Most badass mafia man since Tony Soprano and Vito Corleone

7 Sara Tancredi

Liked her character and storyline with Scofield.

Adorable and very loyal. She and Michael
do everything to find each other

Super hot. Can't believe she used to be an addict

She is gorgeous. Love her

8 David "Tweener" Apolskis

Pour Tweener David Apolskis was a pretty thief incarcerated for stealing a baseball card though generally pleasant Fox river inmates hated him as he attempted to ingratiate himself with black inmates during a race war. To make matters worse Tweener caught the attention of sexual predator Theodore Bagwell who made his life hell until Michael scofeild intervened after helping Michael steal from Roy gear y brad bellick blackmailed him into spying on michael after failing to provide useful information Tweener was put in a cell with the abusive Avocado Tweener informed Bellick of the escape plan fortunately Westmoreland took care of Bellick allowing Tweener to escape he then worked with Bagwell and scofeild to find D.B coppers money when he was captured by Alex Mahone Tweener showed his cunning by leading mahone on a wild goose chase to make up for betraying Michael sadly Mahone we being exstorted by the company so Tweener got a bullet to the chest for his troubles

9 Lincoln Burrows

Lincoln is actually not a bad character he always helps his friends and family when they are in danger.And he always stays strong and positive no matter what people think or say about him.

Can't act his way out of a paper bag but liked his dynamic with Miller.

He is very strong and he does everything for people he loves.

10 Benjamin Miles 'C-Note' Franklin

Yall don't know what your talking about, C-Note is the guy! He said duck the army, I'm going jail. He just wanted a family ting, American be haters. Free up c-note he should at least be before Lincoln and Paul. Who likes Paul.

A good parent and a great husband. He sacrifices everything for his family.

He escaped prison with the law. Good father and even better character

The Contenders
11 Gretchen Morgan

greatest character in the entire show

12 Charles Patoshik

As we see the story from michael,s point of view we dislike Haywire instantly because he,s a threat to michael however the sad truth is Haywire was one of the many Michael screwed over in the process of trying to do something good.Haywire is different from other prisoners being mentally retarded and having no qualms with trading prison secrets for favorable treatment. after escaping the prison Haywire only wants to move on with his life and not hurt anyone tragically Alex Mahone goaded him into killing himself to protect his family

Is helpful for Michael in breaking out of Fox River.His main objective is going to Holland and finding peace. He is a mentally retarded person.

All he wants to do is go to Holland, but was driven insane by abusive parents and intense studies. Poor guy.

This guy should've received more airtime. The actor who portrays him is quite gifted.

13 Theodore Bagwell

Theodore,s mother Audrey Bagwell was raped by her brother Mr Bagwell leading to his birth when he was a child his father sexually abused him mentally scaring him for life T-Bag spent his youth in out of prison often for torturing animals he was wanted for 40 different accounts of kidnap rape and murder when his girlfriend Susan Hollander turned him in T-Bag was a snake willing to betray others if it benefited him however he did show care and mercy for a few people Susan his son Whip and cousin James Bagwell.T-Bag can be quite the charmer when he wants to be he is also portrayed as a talented speaker while he was diagnosed a psychopath he showed remorse after kidnapping Susan expressing his relief he was infertile meaning no more of his corrupted breed could walk the streets and also seemed oddly sad over the death of Bellick a man who,d tortured him. In season 5 T-Bag shows his better side informing Lincoln michael,s still alive despite hating both of them he then ivestigates the ...more

14 Veronica Donovan

Veronica is such an underappreciated character. Shes a loyal, smart and tough girl who fought so hard for Michael & Lincoln. Her death was sad and I wish she lasted longer on PB

Most underrated character for sure

Hottest female in the show

15 Brad Bellick

I love bad characters and even more if it's a cop.
He was a brutal penitenciary guard but when he loosed his job, all went down.
Amazing character with T-Bag and C-Note

Great job. Perfect casting, and like Sucre, added so much by his presence.

Disliked him strongly in season 1 and season 2, but loved him in season 3

Can't be beat in season 3.

16 Charles Westmoreland

Serving as an advisor to his friend Michael scofeild throughout season 1 Charles Westmoreland was an accomplished liar who,se sense of decency and honour learned him respect from inmates and guards alike unlike other inmates Westmoreland was extremely loyal to Michael after being told he was not allowed to see his daughter before she died he got in on michael,s escape plan in doing so he was killed by his rival and former friend Captain Brad Bellick in his last moments Westmoreland told Michael to give his hidden money to his daughter showing. The consideration that made Charles so likeable

Being a helpful companion to Michael, he was quite honestly a very memorable character! Also has a huge passion to his cat Marilyn. Really sucks that he was short lived.

17 James Whistler
18 Warden Henry Pope
19 LJ Burrows
20 Henry Pope

Pope was a father figure to michael who treated his prisoners with respect and eventually confessed to his wife fathering a child from another woman to stop paul kellerman and Daniel Hale blackmailing him regarding Michael. A brave man I,d love to have as a friend

21 Sofia Lugo
22 Avocado

Avocado is just plain hilarious, personally. Every time I look at him I just chuckle.

Avocado is the coolest. He shagged Tweener. He is a true inspiration. I admire his personality.

23 Nick Savrinn
24 Officer Roy Geary

Officer Roy Geary was a corrupt man who stole michael,s watch when Michael had tweener steal it back for him roy informed Bellick who blackmailed tweener Roy,s corruption was exposed when he was wrongfully implicated in a burn Michael sustained Bellick looked down on him for getting caught so Roy reported bellick for selling prison industries to John Abruzzi Roy allied with Bellick to capture the Fox river. Eight and they tortured T-Bag in the end Roy betrayed bellick before T-Bag killed him all round not a nice guy
