Captain Bellick (Wade Williams) is the guy you love to hate. Every prison has a Bellick. He likes his authority, and takes an immediate dislike to Michael from the beginning. Bellick and Michael?s bitter relationship started when Bellick assumed that Michael was trying to be smart with him. His dislike towards Michael deepened during the shakedown when the Warden wouldn?t allow Bellick to check Michael?s cell and told him to ?move along?. Brad Bellick had wanted to be a C.O. (correctional officer) his whole life. Within a couple of months of graduating from high school, Bellick passed the C.O exam and has been at Fox River ever since. In that time he has risen the ranks and has been promoted to captain, despite alleged claims of inmate abuse. His duties comprise of: aiding in the transportation of death row inmates to the electric chair, supervising Fox River?s prison industries program and regulating the day-to-day activites of the inmates in gen pop. The way in which the Warden and Bellick see the prisoners is vastly different. Henry Pope sees them as men who have taken a wrong turn in life and need to be rehabilitated, whereas Bellick sees them as cons who need to be punished. Despite this immense difference in opinions, Henry Pope hopes to promote Bellick to the position of Warden after his retirement. Captain Bellick is a recovering drug addict. In fact he met Dr. Sara Tancredi at a meeting for recovering addicts and offered her the job at Fox River and asked her out to dinner, to which she politely declined (poor guy). He still lives with his mother and frequently visits stripper clubs where he is on first name basis with the girls. Bellick is one crooked C.O. He allows Abruzzi to run PI in exchange for money, and when Abruzzi?s funding is temporarily cut off he hands the reins over to Gus Fiorello who starts filling Bellick?s pockets instead. Bellick lies, cheats, steals from inmates and also abuses them but has yet to be caught. Bellick is thought to have killed Charles Westmoreland?s pet cat, Marylin. At the end of season 1, Bellick was attacked by Westmoreland, bound and gagged and thrown into the hole where he was trapped for hours. Bellick is currently furiously trying to track down the escapees. ?They just signed their own death warrents?.
