Personally for me I think that The Plague and The Spirit have 2 of the saddest backstories.
I totally agree with you,but I also add nurse. She lost her husband so sad 😢
I forgot to add Wraith, I think wraith’s is pretty awful as well. He didn’t even know what was happening
Plague because she was trying to help her people and everyone pretty much died.
Spirit since she saw her father kill her mother and then was pretty much sliced to bits by her psycho father.
Nurse for losing her husband in a tragic accident and having to endure the suffering people at the asylum.
Huntress for watching her mother sing her favorite lullaby while dying in front of her as a small child. She pretty much fended for herself the whole time and lived without human interaction.
What you said. I'd also add Wraith and Billy.
Spirit has the saddest one imo. She goes through a whole range of emotion. I assume mostly sadness for her mother and anger because of the betrayal of her father, as well as the eternal pain because of her wounds.
Hag??? She was a little girl who got kidnapped and tortured by cannibals
Killers: the Pig
Most likely Dwight. Everyone else at one point at least had good times, where as Dwight never had good times. The closest he had to that was when he worked for Phil's Petrol, and that's being a mechanic. Dwight is the average millenial, basically 90% of us. Looks smart, is actually not very smart, just has common sense. Shy and nervous. No friends. Never did all that good in school. Constant dead end jobs. Eventually catches his big break but it only lasts for a few months. Gets betrayed by his coworkers and eventually ends up in a pseudo-purgatory stage of his life. Pretty sad/mediocre life for Dwight if you ask me. He's realistically the most relatable. Can't help but feel for the poor lad.
Killer wise, I'd say Hillbilly, for one similar reason to Dwight. He never had a good time at any point in his life. From birth he was alienated and neglected, he literally never even had a chance, where as every other killer at one point got to experience joy, happiness, and tranquility/peace. Poor Billy got demented early on. It is better to be saddened by the knowledge of loss of good times, then to have never experienced them.
honestly hillbilly is kinda sad. Definitely Wraith and nurse though.
