Early life

Lloyd Lowery was born in 1981[1] to a caring mother and an absent father, who according to his mother lives in Holland and was too busy for family matters. Even at early age Lloyd was an intelligent individual of much potential. Lloyd graduated high school at 12, college at 16, and medical school at 20. Lloyd was highly knowledgeable within the field of criminal psychology and was therefore consulted by law enforcers in order to get an insight on his opinion on the mind of serial killer Damien Fontleroy, to aid them in his prosecution. Lloyd testified towards him and meant that he should be institutionalized (which he eventually did). Lloyd quickly rose in the field of Human Behavior Analysis, becoming a successful psychiatrist and published professor, even earning a tenure. Things often came easy to Lloyd, perhaps too easy – this drove him to a hobby that proved more difficult, gambling, which spiraled out of control and landed him with a lot of debt. To pay this back, Lloyd sold prescriptions to kids, one of whom overdosed. This landed him in prison for a 25 year stretch and he's felt regret over it ever since, but acknowledges it was his fault[2]. Lloyd reveals that he actually accepted the first plea deal offered him so he didn't have to face the girl's parents due to the immense guilt he felt. Lloyd along with Shea Daniels, Fritz Gunderson and Philomena Rotchliffer, was one of the initial convicts chosen to aid Ray Zancanelli and Charlie Duchamp in catching escapees as a member of the Breakout Kings.

Season 1

Lloyd was a focal point of the fifth episode Queen of Hearts. Lloyd had an increasing gambling debt which lead to a born again inmate threatening his life if he didn't come up with 800$ by midnight. At first Lloyd went to Shea for help, however Shea dismissed him and told him he was on his own. He also searched council from Erica but she had no interest in his troubles. He even went as far as attempting to gamble against minors. However he finally managed to convince Shea and Erica to help him after he later revealed that he received a 25 year sentence because he gave out prescription medication to minors to cover his massive gambling debt, one of which was a girl who died from an overdose. Despite refusing to help him at first, they later changed their mind after he told them that he regretted what he did. They then managed to obtain a watch worth $400, which despite being worth less than the amount of money he owed the inmate, would however do the job according to Shea.

Lloyd came to encounter personal issues yet again in the very next episode Like Father, Like Son when he begins to wonder who his real father is and why his mother has kept him secret from him. He then asks Julianne Simms to track and find out information about his father. Julianne manages to obtain information on him and reluctantly informs him that his name is Lars and he lives in Columbus, Ohio not Amsterdam as his mother had told him. Lloyd sits in the interrogation room, holding a piece of paper with his dad's phone number on it. He dials Lars picks up and Lloyd asks if it's Lars Lowery, it is, but Lloyd, unable to respond, hangs up.

Lloyd continued to serve with distinction in the Breakout Kings, forming a strong bond with his comrades. In particular, Lloyd grew closer to Julianne who he has a crush on.
