Ezra Hemph is one of the playable characters from Hope Without A Cause. He was put in prison for being found guilty of the murder of his ex-girlfriend, even though he didn't actually do it.

Ezra was wrongfully accused for the murder of his first wife, and as such is trying to appeal his case to get out of prison and find the true culprit. He may have a strong exterior, but on the inside he really is a nice guy even though most people can't see that.


The day Ezra was taken under arrest was an interesting day for him. He woke up to see a police officer hanging over him, not knowing what was going on. It was only later revealed to him that he was accused of killing his ex-girlfriend whom he hadn't seen in months. Ezra was found guilty during his trial and locked up in Morlano Prison.

Ezra was put into Morlano Prison after being found guilty of murdering his ex-girlfriend. He however did not kill his ex-girlfriend, and his entire time in Morlano is spent trying to get out. He is more of a followerer within the prison, never making any outright decisions are taking part in anything that would extend his sentence.

Ezra appeals his sentence to the court, and formulates a case to help find himself innocent. After his appeal, Ezra is found to still be guilty, so he waits out his time to appeal his case again.

During this time, Ezra gets in contact with a reporter to share his story to the outside world. He works with the reporter, Joan Porters, to help get himself out of the prison and collect information that he can use for his appeal. Ezra does this by talking to people who testified against him at the Visitor's Centre among other techniques.

The time for his next appeal comes and Ezra now has a lot more information available to help prove his innocence after what he and Joan did over the past few months. His appeal is successful and Ezra is finally declared innocent and gets to leave the prison.
