O'Rourke, Bullworth's fireman.

O'Rourke is a fireman in Bully. He was voiced by Tom Zurhellen.

Character DescriptionEdit

O'Rourke only appears in-game if The Gym is Burning is failed. Despite this, he has a full set of dialogue, and will converse with other townsfolk and Jimmy if placed in free-roam through hex editing. As he appears to be a complete character, it is unknown why he was removed from free-roam in the final build of the game.

A similar-looking fireman named Jake was posted on Tyler Wilson's website, in the alpha character models section.


Because of his miniscule role in the game, not much of his personality is known. His name was determined from the data files of the PC version of Bully.

O'Rourke is a deeply cynical person. He is especially bitter about his job, complaining about his low pay, budget cuts to the town's fire service, and the general lack of respect for firefighters. He is a heavy smoker, and makes many references to cigarettes in his dialogue. Additionally, Jake was depicted as having a cigarette in his mouth.

Role in gameEdit

As stated above, the only time O'Rourke appears in the game is if the mission The Gym is Burning is failed. He appears standing in the doorway of the burning gym with two of the policemen on either side.


  • O'Rourke's character model is not designed to ride on bikes or scooters properly, and he can sometimes be found hovering above a bike or scooter, going in constant circles, when placed in free-roam.
  • His character model also isn't designed to bust people properly and he glitches and flies randomly around Jimmy when he tries to bust someone.
