[edit] Biography

Dr. Maynard P. Cheney is an author and employee at the Museum of Natural History in New York. He is an expert on labyrinths, having written at least one book on the subject and created an exhibit at the Museum entitled "Labyrinths of the Ancient World". At the Museum, Dr. Cheney has a graduate student named Gretchen Welch working below him, and it is implied that the two are in a romantic relationship.[1]

[edit] Uncharted: The Fourth Labyrinth

In October, Dr. Cheney's peer Luka Hzujak contacts him, having made a discovery regarding a series of ancient labyrinths created by legendary Greek craftsman Daedalus. Luka has discovered what he believes to be a third labyrinth, to go along with the already well-known labyrinth of Knossos on the Greek island of Crete, and the labyrinth of Sobek in Crocodilopolis, Egypt.[1]

However, this discovery attracts the attention of the Protectors of the Hidden Word, an ancient society set up to guard the secrets held within the labyrinths, and Luka is killed by the Protectors. Days later, Luka's daughter Jadranka, along with Luka's friends Nathan "Nate" Drake and Victor "Sully" Sullivan, visit Dr. Cheney. However, as they approach Dr. Cheney's office a ruckus breaks out. Nate rushes ahead, and finds Dr. Cheney injured in his office, having been attacked by a member of the secret society only moments earlier. The wounds prove fatal, and Dr. Cheney dies moments later.[1]
