Theodore "T-Bag" Bagwell is an escaped convict from Fox River State Penitentiary. He is known for his role on a mass breakout as a member of the "Fox River Eight". T-Bag is a rapist and serial killer who has escaped from prison several times. He is considered to be one of the most dangerous convicts the team has encountered.


Early lifeEdit

Theodore Bagwell also known as T-Bag was born in Coneouch County, Alabama to Mr. Bagwell and Audrey Bagwell. His father and mother were brother and sister[1]. He later had a relationship with Susan Hollander, but she saw him on TV and he was eventually captured and send to Fox River[2].

Three years later, T-Bag became one of the Fox River Eight. His hand was cut off by John Abruzzi[3]. T-Bag, after he captured the Hollanders, he would eventually safe them[4]. T-Bag would later end up in prison, Sona. However, he escaped from this while starting a riot[5].

Breakout KingsEdit

He later breaks out of Fox River again during a replacement run for his prosthetic Hand. He sets out on a mission of vengeance on two men that raped his mother. He succeeds in killing Wayne Garrett and his girlfriend, Lorraine. He then later finds Rodney Johnson and throws him into a rock crusher. He then went to see his mother where he is re-captured by the marshals but is allowed to tell his mother that "he got them."



T-Bag is sadistic, cruel, perverse and racist. However at times he has shown the complete opposite, once even regretting his crimes.

Theodore is a very calculating man, able to manipulate and scheme with ease.
