"I mean, what am I supposed to do in this fucking town? Go to church, like all these assholes?" — Charles Eriksen in Captain Spirit
"The biggest rule is keep your heads low around here... Beaver Creek is small... and nosey and... nosey." — Stephen Reynolds in Life is Strange 2
Beaver Creek is the setting for The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit and a returning location in Episode 2 of Life is Strange 2. Located in the mountainous region of western Oregon, USA (between Salem, Eugene and Mt. Jefferson, and is in Lane County), it is the hometown of protagonist Chris Eriksen and his father Charles. In Episode 2, Sean and Daniel Diaz decide to visit the town in order to seek help from their grandparents, Claire and Stephen Reynolds, after Daniel's illness begins to worsen.
Captain Spirit Edit
The Awesome Adventures of Captain Spirit takes place entirely within and around the Eriksens' household on a snowy winter day. The house is located in a fairly secluded location surrounded by pine trees, with the Reynolds' household being the only other building nearby.
After Daniel falls ill, Sean decides to take a detour from their journey to Puerto Lobos towards Beaver Creek to find help from their grandparents, Claire and Stephen Reynolds. After being taken in, the brothers stay at the Reynolds' house for the next few days while attempting to keep a low profile. Despite their efforts, Sean and Daniel are eventually located by the police, forcing them to flee the household and hitch a ride on a passing train out of town.
