Penley T. Housefather Correctional Facility, known as "Pent House"[1] and also by the acronym PTHCF[2], is a super-maximum security prison located in the Arizona desert and built to incarcerate augmented criminals. It is the location featured in the expansion A Criminal Past for Deus Ex: Mankind Divided.

Background Edit

Pent House opened in 2028 and is named after Penley T. Housefather,[3] a senator known for his deep contempt for the augmented.[4] The prison is part of an aug-only prison system operated under the Terminal Violation Policy system spearheaded by senator Housefather. Under this policy, the prison is permitted to deliver 24-hour execution orders without trial or appeal, if an inmate is judged to have committed an infraction falling under certain the "Terminal Violation" classification. Executions must be signed by the Warden, a professional doctor, and the head of security.[5]

Pent House has been infiltrated by the black market group Junkyard, which utilizes the execution policy of the facility to harvest augmentations from executed inmates.

A Criminal Past Edit

During the events of A Criminal Past, a riot breaks down in the Pent House, in part because of the inmates' contempt for the prison's execution practices. The inmates overrun many parts of the prison, including the prison's administrative offices.
