Prudence Holmes is a character in We Happy Few. Arthur discovers she's been missing for a very long time at the beginning of his Act.

Events of We Happy Few Edit

Prudence worked at the Department of Archives, Printing & Recycling. Arthur (and most of the employees) believes she went on a Summer Vacation, which she was looking forward to, if the images posted on her office wall are any indication.

There are welcome back cards and spoiled food in her office. Interacting with the full bottle of Joy will cause Arthur to realize she was also off her pills. The Business Letter in Clive's office suggests that she may not return.

It is revealed in a note Arthur found that Prudence was a Downer and was working with a man named Mr. Kite to uncover the secrets of Wellington Wells. Before she left she sent a letter to Victoria, telling her to not look for her, which can be found in the bathroom at her home.

From her letters and diary, it appears that Prudence had romantic feelings for Victoria, whom she addressed as "Dearest V," which she believed were not reciprocated due to Victoria's strong sense of duty. Furthermore, she privately disliked Arthur for "making googly eyes" at her.

Her corpse is eventually discovered by Arthur in the motilene mining tunnels underneath the Parade if the player does not listen to all of the phone booth record, revealing that she almost managed to escape Wellington Wells but was killed by a small cave-in.
