Artwork of Brian Bradley in Hotel Dusk: Room 215.
Nile double agent, now on the run
Brian Bradley is the former partner of Kyle Hyde. Kyle and Bradley were investigating a series of art thefts while working together. During a telephone conversation with his mother, Kyle said he was done looking for him in Last Window: Secret of Cape West.
Working alongside Kyle in the N.Y.P.D, Bradley was assigned as an undercover cop in the Nile case where the crime syndicate Nile were stealing art. Soon Bradley was approached by Nile operative "Norman" A.K.A Robert Evans who informed him that Nile had taken Bradley's kid sister Mila and unless he disclosed secret police information to the crime syndicate, Mila would be killed. During this time working as a forced informant for Nile, Bradley discovered the secrets behind Nile itself including Dunning Smith being the "Phantom Painter" Osterzone and that Dunning's daughter was kidnapped by Nile too.
As his work continued he came across "Angel Opening A Door", the masterpiece of Osterzone. Feeling Dunning's pain of having a loved one kidnapped, Bradley takes the painting and a case of money after shooting one of his associates. The associate was Danny, best friend to Louis DeNonno who was connected to Kyle Hyde. Before long, Bradley was able to see his sister again. However, he was too late; he thought Mila was dead by the hands of Robert Evans. Attempting to convince Bradley to work for him, Evans was able to bring Bradley back aboard. Despite his choice, Bradley had only one goal in mind -- kill Robert Evans.
Around this time, Hyde found out about Bradley's treachery and confronted him on the New York docks. A furious Hyde shot Bradley and he fell into the Hudson river. Surviving, Bradley continued to hunt Evans. 6 months before the main game story, Bradley turns up at Robbins Memorial Hospital where Mila Evans (daughter of Robert Evans) was still in a coma. Seeing his kid sister in Mila, he felt so nostalgic and gave her the bracelet he was wearing; the bracelet which used to belong to his sister.
Soon after, Bradley arrived at Hotel Dusk. That night, he had a few drinks with Dunning Smith and starts talking to him about Nile, about Evans, about everything. Dunning pretended not to know anything but Bradley kept talking. Before leaving, Bradley left the "Angel Opening A Door" painting in room 217 of Hotel Dusk, the same room he had been staying in. Along with that, he left clues for his old partner Hyde to pick up on including signing into the hotel using Kyle's own name. It is heavily implied that around this time, Bradley succeeded in hunting down and killing Evans.
After finishing what he set out to do, Bradley was on the run from Nile as well as the police. Leaving behind a handwritten note for Kyle to find, he told his ex-partner to give up chasing him because there was no point in chasing a "ghost". His fate is unknown.
