Very Disappointed With Blight from a lore perspective
The Blight is, I believe, the killer that has had the longest buildup to his reveal ever. Tome 1 had a full set of entries on him, how he experimented on the other killers, how he lost his mind completely only to get a tiny piece of it back, and how he went from refusing to participate in the trials to being willing as long as he could get his serum fix. He sounded fascinating - a true mad scientist who fell prey to the thing that he was experimenting on.
The Blight's new lore added to the beginning of his story is excellent as well, I'm really happy with it. Fits what we knew of him from Tome 1, and on the whole adds to the background.
Why then, is this brilliant but insane mind, not using...any of it? His power is "blindly smack into walls and only after smacking into a wall and losing a few brain cells can he hit the survivors." I don't get it. There's no mind there, there's no mad genius. He has enough sanity left to know how to work his syringes, but otherwise he's, objectively, the dumbest killer in the roster. No one else is intentionally slamming into walls, no one else literally forgets how to hit survivors. It's such a different story from his entire lore, where yes he's insane, but he's also extremely intelligent, that it's extremely jarring.
I was really, really looking forward to The Blight whenever he came down the road, and I'm extremely disappointed. I don't get "addict scientist" vibes from him, I get "addict" vibes from him. Why bother making his backstory showcase his actual intelligence time and time again if his power objectively is the least intelligent power in the 21 killer lineup? It's awful and I feel really let down because his lore promised so much more than this.
