Bishop is a main character in Driver: Parallel Lines.

DescriptionEdit

1978 EraEdit

TK first meets Bishop after Slink had bought TK an apartment unit in New York. He informs TK that Corrigan, the leader of the criminal organization, sent him to work with TK to help break out a criminal mastermind and acquaintance named Candy, who is serving an unspecified amount of time in jail at Riker's Island for unexplained reasons. TK helps Bishop to do so by stealing a Prison Van, before later scaring a security guard working at Rikers Island to get important information on the prison's layout. Having done so, the break out turns out to be a success, as TK manages to break out Candy without difficulty.

Bishop, alongside TK, Slink and The Mexican later help kidnap Rafael Martinez, a prominent Colombian cocaine dealer, on the orders of Corrigan. They also manage to gain the ransom money, only for the gang, including Bishop, to betray TK and frame him for murdering Rafael, which Corrigan had done after Rafael had refused to take an offer.

2006 EraEdit

By 2006, Bishop had become a wealthy heroin dealer, having bought himself a mansion in New York, married off to a trophy wife, and co-owned Slink's adult stores and is helping him distribute drugs around New York. With the help of Ray, TK manages to destroy the adult stores, before destroying the drug distribution around the city.

Bishop later calls TK, asking him to meet him at his mention to a one-on-one duel to "finish things". TK arrives at the house, only to be greeted by Bishop in his armored APC tank, giving Bishop an unfair advantage. However, despite the advantage, Bishop's APC is later destroyed by TK, killing him.

AppearanceEdit

1978 EraEdit

Bishop is a shown as a tall middle-aged man of African-American descent and former member of the Military. He is shown to feature several facial hair around his chin and mouth, sideburns, and his black hair is done in an afro style, smaller than Slink's. He wears a grey turtleneck shirt, a black leather jacket, khaki pants and black formal shoes.

2006 EraEdit

Bishop is shown to be much taller than he was in 1978, and his appearance has drastically aged, which may have also been a factor of his drug addiction. What remains of his now-graying hair is done in a buzz-cut style, while his facial hair is shown to be receeding. He wears a beige suit with a white shirt and white wingtips.

Mission AppearancesEdit

TriviaEdit

  • Bishop is the only character who's body is not used to bait Corrigan out of hiding.
    • Originally, according to the game files, there was a mission that involved taking down Corrigan's security outfit, called BulletProof, and the car that was to be used is the Prestige, with Bishop's remains in the trunk. In that mission, Maria Cortez tells TK to find the car in Williamsburg, Queens, and use a ramp at the parking lot opposite BulletProof HQ, taking out the guards and getting out, leaving the car inside. [1] The mission was meant to be unlocked alongside Bear Cage and Home Wrecker, but it was cut.
