Ferris is the youngest son of five children to an emotionally distant and egotistical man and an Italian-American woman. He seems to have had a better relationship with his father than his siblings since he resembled the man.
He is the second-in-command to David McNamara and the two seem to be close. David splits up with him and Dr. Kendrick in the basement. Ferris is paired with the doctor and the two search for Ackerman, who jumps Ferris in a dark room. The young man is hit three times with a hammer, killing him.
