DlC Chapter: Nautical Betrayal
Killer: The Fisherman
Real Name: Adrian Charles
Adrian was a man of the sea, through and through. Born in a port town in Ireland, the sea is what Adrian had known for all his life. He had been raised on morals of honest work, and providing for those around him. At a young age, Adrian was taught to fish, and he loved every second of it. When it came time for him to get a job, he decided to work on a fishing boat, believing that if he worked doing what he loved, he would never truly work a day in his life.
At the age of 30, Adrian married Catalina Sela, and bought a house for them to live in. Adrian and Catalina Charles lived there happily for many years, until one year a violent storm caused great damage to their home. Adrian and Cataline took it upon themselves to repair the house themselves, reflecting the hard working morals they were raised on. Time passed, and the house was still in need of repair and the couple were short on money. Adrian came to realize that his work was not bringing in enough money, and decided to set up lessons for people who wished to learn how to fish out on the sea, and insisted they pay in cash. This helped bring in extra money, but still it wasn’t quite enough. One day on a lesson, Adrian was getting to know one of his students and learned the man was incredibly wealthy. With the money his student had, he could easily afford the rest of the repairs for his home. In a moment of necessity and greed, he killed the man, stole his wallet and dumped his body in the sea.
With the money he had stolen, Adrian and Catalina were finally able to repair their house, and had money left over. Adrian began to spend the leftover money recklessly, as greed began to take him over. When he ran low on money, he would set up more lessons, where he would kill them and steal their belongings. As time passed, Catalina begane to grow suspicious of Adrian. One day Catalina confronted Adrian as he was sitting on the edge of his dock. Guilt overcame Adrian, but it was quickly overcome with fear. In a moment of desperation, he attacked Catalina, and threw her into the water to attempt to drown her. As the two thrashed around in the water, trying to fight back and stay afloat, the two began to sink into the sea, and neither of them were heard from again.

Survivor: Catalina Charles
Backstory: Catalina Sela grew up in a port town in Ireland, an only child to a single mother. Catalina was taught how to take care of herself, not rely on others, and most importantly, how to be strong. Whenever there was an issue with the house that needed taking care of, Catalina’s mother would teach her how to repair the house. These lessons provided Catalina with a valuable set of skills, and she became an expert at repairs, both inside and outside the house. Catalina decided to make a career out of this, helping to bring in money for the two of them.
When Catalina was 28, she married Adrian Charles, a man she lived near to and had gotten to know well over the years. They moved in together, buying a house on the water. Despite having moved out of her old home, she did not forget about her mother. She offered to let her mother move in with them, but she insisted she could handle herself. Catalina would still help her mother out, giving part of her paycheck to her mother to help her.
When Catalina and Adrian’s home was devastated by a storm, she decided she would use the skills she had been developing all her life to repair the house. From that moment onward, she worked tirelessly. When she was not working her repair job, she was repairing her own home. The two of them began to struggle financially, and repair progress had slowed down significantly. Adrian said that he would start giving fishing lessons in order to help bring in extra money. After a few weeks, Adrian returned with a large summary, saying that a very generous student wanted to help them repair their house.
With the large amount of money, Catalina and Adrian were able to completely repair their house, with money to spare. Life at home was finally able to return to normal, but not for long. Catalina had noticed a change in Adrian’s behavior. He had grown greedier and more irritable. One day, she decided to watch out the window as Adrian left on a lesson, and when he returned, she noticed that his student was not with him, but thought nothing of it. She continued to watch him from the window each day, and began to notice that for multiple weeks, none of Adrian’s students had returned, and grew suspicious. One day when Adrian returned, once again without his student, Adrian came inside to grab a drink. It was then she noticed a large blood stain on the back of his neck. As Adrian sat on the dock drinking, Catalina approached him to question him about his students and the blood on his neck. Suddenly, Adrian had struck her, grabbed her by the arm and threw her into the sea. While she was still reeling from the attack, Adrian had jumped into the water and tried to strangle her. She fought back desperately as both of them began to sink into the sea. Catalina’s consciousness began to fade and felt the cold of the sea envelop her completely. She closed her eyes for what she believed to be the final time, but when she opened them again, she found herself sitting by a campfire, with no clue where she was.
