Dead Rising Psychopaths

Sean Keanan is a Dead Rising psychopath. He is the charismatic leader of the True Eye Cult which Frank first encounters on the afternoon of the second day in the unannounced scoop The Cult in Paradise Plaza.

Dead Rising Sean

Sean is about to sacrifice Jennifer Gorman in a crate with a ceremonial sword when he spots Frank taking pictures of the cult ritual. Sean orders Raincoat Cult followers to kill Frank.

Frank later receives the scoop A Strange Group from Otis telling him the cult is in Colby's Movieland in Paradise Plaza. When Frank arrives in theater 4, Sean is performing rituals in front of a Mannequin, surrounded by five hostages.[4]

Sean dies a gruesome death, pierced by his own sword through the eye. Frank can then acquire the Movieland Warehouse Key, Ceremonial Sword, and the Brainwashing Tips book.


  • Organ music, a kind of music used in many varieties of Christian churches over the centuries, plays during Sean Keanan's cutscenes. This, combined with his style of dress and speaking, may suggest that Keanan was a minister or priest of some kind before the zombies came.
  • Keanan is one of only two Psychopaths who works with a group. The other is the Hall family, who have no quasi-religious motives.
