former Deputy Sheriff
Lloyd Collins was an ordinary deputy sheriff living and working in Midland-Odessa, TX, before his life was turned upside down by a mysterious outbreak of murders that eventually brought him into conflict with The Company, though in the end he agreed to become a member of the Kill Squad.
Lloyd and Sheriff Davidson are having breakfast at the Burnt Toast Diner in Midland. They quiz their waitress, Charlie, testing her formidable memory. Later, when Charlie's body is discovered with a sliced skull, Lloyd and the sheriff question the other patrons.
According to Company records, Lloyd Collins had never finished Seal training as family illness sent him back to Midland where he joined the local Sheriff's office. When Sylar came to town and started cutting people's heads open, Lloyd began asking one too many questions he was imprisoned in a Primatech holding cell. When that went sour, he was drugged and shipped to New York. Sean Fallon finds Lloyd in a Level 1 cell. Upon Sean's entering of his cell, Lloyd throws two full plates of food and a glass of water at him, then shouts threatening to expose the Company when he gets out. Sean gets him to listen to him, promising he could be Lloyd's ticket out of the cell if he could keep quiet for five minutes.
Lloyd joins the Kill Squad. For its first mission, the Squad takes a freighter ride through the Gulf of Mexico, and anchors off the coast of Guyana. They then fly by helicopter to a site where a local inhabitant's manifestation had left only a large crater in its wake. Lloyd and the rest of the Squad stand by as Paulette Hawkins assists Lewis in covering the crater with trees and becoming one of them himself. Lloyd then receives a radio transmission from Gael, and tells Sean that Gael is checking in for a status report. After relaying Sean's reply, Lloyd watches while Sean has Paulette shot dead, and agrees to Sean's orders that what transpired should remain a secret.
After Connie Logan and her team of Julien clones flee their base with Sabine and the root, Lloyd and the other Kill Squad members are part of the Company's pursuit. Later, the squad fights the Julien clones after one squad member shoots Penny, Connie's daughter, dead. Another shot kills Connie, and they keep fighting the clones until all those in the vicinity are dead. Lloyd and the other squad members then follow orders to do a full sweep of the area in order to report casualties.
Lloyd lies dead in the woods, with Ricardo Silva and Anna standing over his body as well as the bodies of his dead Kill Squad comrades. Anna recounts their death - Ricardo had induced an uncontrollable rage in all the Kill Squad members, and then Lloyd had started violently fighting with Sean, Joseph Gallagher, and Tom Drake. Lloyd then remembers that he has a shotgun, and pulls it out and shoots Drake in the back. As he does this Sean shoots him with his own gun, killing him.
In chapter 1 of Operation Bad Blood in the iStory, Lloyd was sent to eliminate Elle Bishop in London after the Kill Squad went rogue. However, the squad was attacked and lost a member. Lloyd got injured in the incident and has been followed to an underground medical clinic by Pinehearst agents. In the clinic, Lloyd meets and instructs a new hire, the Pinehearst contracted player, after contacting Sean Fallon to notify him that he needs to delay his flight to New York City. After the hire fetches a video file and returns, he instructs the person to clean up evidence the squad left behind in the building where they plotted to kill Elle, and leaves the clinic by taxi. When the new hire reports back to Lloyd by phone, he tells the person that the next mission will be within two weeks, and that he will be in touch.
In chapter 2 of Operation Bad Blood in the iStory, Lloyd is still unaware that his new hire, the player, is working for Pinehearst. He meets with the new hire at a crowded diner in New York City and slips a photo of the squad's next target, Maya Herrera, into the player's menu. He explains Maya is dangerous due to her poisonous ability, and needs to be stopped. He then allows the player to take a cell phone call, and when it appears to be a call from the player's girlfriend, advises the player to always do as she asks. Lloyd then informs the player he will be in touch shortly by phone, since they have someone to kill. Later, Lloyd calls the player's cell phone, and asks the player to report to Hyperion Industrial Park. He then hangs up and texts the player the address. Lloyd is standing next to the Kill Squad's leader, Sean Fallon, when the player arrives inside the designated building.
In chapter 3 of Operation Bad Blood in the iStory, Lloyd and the rest of the Kill Squad are still at Hyperion Industrial Park. Lloyd informs the player that the squad has located Maya Herrera, and notes she has an apartment in the city. When Sean decides it is time to go, Lloyd drives the squad in a van to outside Maya's apartment building. Next, Lloyd waits in the van while Sean leaves the passenger seat and directs the squad on the next part of the mission. Later, Lloyd accompanies Sean and Tom inside the building and up to Maya's apartment. Inside the apartment, they find that the player has taken down Red Eye, and then escort Red Eye outside. However, a Primatech team is waiting for them and they end up in a gunfight. Red Eye runs away and Lloyd and the Kill Squad head into a storefront close to the apartment building and escape out the back.
In chapter 5 of Operation Bad Blood in the iStory, the Pinehearst contracted player that has been working undercover in the Kill Squad gets a call from Lloyd after not being able to reach him for a few days. Lloyd tells the player that they need the player to join the squad at their training base in Alaska, explains to the player what has been going on with the Kill Squad, and provides directions to their base.
In chapter 6 of Operation Splinter in the iStory, the Primatech and Pinehearst contractors spot Kill Squad members in wetsuits placing explosive packs on the water intake of the Rowland dam. Later, Red Eye spots and points out to the two contractors that the Kill Squad leaders, Lloyd, Sean, Thomas, and Joseph, are getting out of wetsuits and into the truck at the far end. After making it to the river bank, one of the Kill Squad leaders spots Red Eye so they crouch around a sniper rifle and take shots at Red Eye. One of them shoots Red Eye dead through the heart, then they take off again in their truck.
- The name on Lloyd's nametag in Seven Minutes to Midnight is "Jones".
- The above iStory character history depicts the most optimal events from the perspective of the iStory player. As per graphic novels Red Eye, Part 1 and Part 2, Red Eye doesn't die and instead gets captured by the Kill Squad along with Anna. For the cases where that occurs and the other possibilities/outcomes for the final chapter, see Operation Splinter/chapter 106 alternatives.
