Intermediate character. Runs Jericho's general store and serves as the town "doctor". In reality, Lane has no medical skills, relying entirely on drugs to fix his clients. He's a new arrival, and rather cheerful in comparison to the rest of the town.
The Prisoner can work out Lane is not a real doctor and threaten to expose him unless he gives the Prisoner a discount on his wares (10%, 20%, or 30%, depending on skill). Alternatively, the Prisoner can teach Lane how to deal with broken bones and a few other basic treatments.
If the Prisoner resolves the problems with the water plant, Lane's store will have more valuable items for sale. If the Prisoner sabotages the water plant, all named characters except Lane and most generic NPCs will be gone from the town.
