A stranger from the future contacted Adam early on in the game. Later on, we discovered this stranger to be Adam himself, from the year 2012. He is concerned with the appearance of the Croatoan Virus that took place in his version of 2009, and wants to prevent that series of events from repeating.
- First mentioned by Adam in his An Odd Day post;
- His email was shared by Adam in his My Future Is Your Past post;
- he is the 2012 version of Adam who survived the Croatoan Virus and has now the ability to send messages into the past (see ...The Future?).
- email: moc.liamg|tsapymsierutufruoy#moc.liamg|tsapymsierutufruoy

Adam shares the stranger's email address; players receive an encoded message when contacting this address. See Your Future Is My Past Undeliverable Email.
Olorin received this email from the stranger
Have you ever seen Time Square deserted? It will be deserted in your future.
Have you spotted the bio hazard pamphlet on the side of the pay phone?
It shows the reason why all the people have fled from all major cities.
At least, the few who survived.
In my past, the emerge of the Supporters of The Virus was the beginning of the end.
The virus is not a harmless microbe.
You have seen the web cam footage. Don't let my past happen.

Bruce recieved an answer to his question "What did you do with Dante?"
I have done nothing to Dante.
I just kept his secret. Well, originally at this point in time it is a secret I do not know yet, but as I'm from the future I know a bit more than my present self.
Stay tuned to your e-mail.
I will present you shortly with info. With this I mean very, very, very shortly.
