Jefferson Bragg was the owner and operator of the Blackwood Sanatorium, as well as the establisher of the North West Mines and the Blackwood Pines Hotel. Having been dead long before the events of Until Dawn take place, Jefferson Bragg serves as a primary character in the Until Dawn prequel The Inpatient, 60 years before the main events.
Jefferson Bragg established the North West Mines and later operated the Blackwood Sanatorium. Jefferson Bragg discovered an abundance of tin and radium beneath the surface of the mountain. After setting up more formalized operations, which then turned into a fully fledged mining company, it wasn't long before the money began to flow. The success of Bragg's mining operation was soon followed by the discovery of hot springs in the mountain, which led him to establish the luxurious Blackwood Pines Hotel and Sanatorium resort in 1922.
When the mining disaster occurred during the winter of 1951-1952, Bragg saw an opportunity to experiment on the survivors. His plan later backfired as the miners that turned into Wendigos eventually escaped from their cells, took over the Sanatorium, and killed all of the staff. He later committed suicide, after convincing his colleagues to leave him behind, by drinking poison, and his suicide note can be found by Mike in Chapter 9 while wandering around the Sanatorium.
