Argus is a super maximum prison located one quarter mile off the coast of Grand City. It can be reached either by the single bridge connecting the island fortress to the main land, or by helicopter. The name Argus comes from Greek mythology. According to legend Argus was a guard dog with 100 eyes.
The prison was built in 2012 initiated by billionaire and recent philanthropist Gabriel Price, owner of Price Industries. The prison was specifically designed to house meta-humans criminals who could not be contained in any other prison. Argus is governed by a new branch of the military called Argus Rehabilitation Confinement, or ARC Department for short.
The first and current warden is Jessica Padilla.
