I imagine killers like the Legion are more so human, even being possibly a psychopath, they would feel sympathy for characters like Jeff and help him towards the hatch, as killing him would be a waste of murder.
The Entity is honestly probably chill with sparing survivors. Since only a minimal number of killers try it in rare scenarios the Entity probably sees it as banking hope.
Sort of like fattening up livestock, before the slaughter.
You are just punished in your awards post trial.
Since the entity feeds off of strong emotions in general, the entity probably wouldn’t mind it at all. It will boost the hope of the survivor and the entity knows the survivor will eventually die in the end. The more hopeful the survivor, the more tasty a morsel they are.
if it happened too regularly I think the entity would torture the killer to kill more often since that seems somewhat cannon.
You spared them?
Thats a paddling!
Most likely angry. It's considered a escape, Entity does not want escapes. The perk Whispers has shown that the Entity WILL take the side of the killer.
Gens and "exit" gates are to inspire hope, not allow them to truly escape.
It gives the survivors false hope which would feed it better
It produces hope. Obviously its a no-no to spare everyone but on occasions its likely that the entity is fine with it. The reasoning for this is because after getting carried near the hatch after seeing all of your friends get murdered its going to create a boost of hope. Which the entity feeds off of. But we don't know if the entity feeds off of hope or hope getting ripped away. It all depends on which one.
Mercy is just as big as torment. False hope and playing with the emotions of a survivor is part of the process. In a sense. Letting the survivor escape or hatch. Boosts their confidence for the next trial. So they make mistakes FASTER and more quickly. mawhahahhaa.
