New Killer Idea: The Favourite
Before you start reading I wanted to say that I made this killer because I had an interesting idea for the lore and based the power around that. So if you like lore you might find this interesting.
So, yeah, enjoy and please leave feedback ;)
Chapter: The Entity’s Kiss
Killer name: The Favourite
Benedict’s Journal Entry: “I saw someone today, someone different. None of the beasts I saw until now has ever been this badly tortured, I have no idea of how it is able to move, I almost felt pity for that man. He saw me, he hesitated to chase me, standing there for long moments as if he found a sense of humanity he had long lost. Then I saw that black claw emerging from his back, I knew I had to run” ~ Benedict Baker
Killer Power: Entity’s Gift: The Favourite has one of the Entity’s arms emerging from his back. The arm will always point towards the closest not hooked survivor, it will also not point to survivors who have been unhooked, to use the arm you will press the primary ability button, when using this ability you won’t be able to attack, and when changing to the weapon you will slowed down for two second similarly to the Wraith, the arm will stop pointing when you are within 16/20 meters of a survivor (Unsure about which one or if to make the radius bigger). After hooking survivors for a total of 4 times the arm will change and go behind the Favourite, and then after two more hooked survivors the Entity will rip The Favourite’s back creating a new arm. When The Favourite hooks a survivor he will say one of these lines: “I’m so sorry” “Forgive me” “Poor soul”. Sometimes The Favourite can be heard crying. The transformed arm and the new look different than the ones seen on the hooks, more blade-like than claw-like, the transformed one can be used with the secondary ability button (The Pig’s crouching button), the arm will hit the Favourite in the back giving him a short burst of speed of 150% up to 5 seconds, this ability has a cooldown of 30 seconds. When the second arm comes out The Favourite will scream in pain and then say “Thank you” under his breath. The second arm will take the place of the main weapon, this arm will have a slightly longer lunge than normal.
Killer appearance: The Favourite is a mess, most of his bones are broken, deep wounds cover his body, rusty metal spikes pierce his back and legs, a hook with a chain is still attached to his left arm pulling the skin and exposing bone and muscle. He is extremely thin due to lack of nutrition. The Favourite manages to walk only due to despair. Small fishing hooks pull the skin of his cheek. One of his eyes is a bleeding pulp.
Killer weapon: The Favourite wields a sharp WW2 german bayonet.
- Normal animation: The Favourite grabs the blade of the weapon and pulls it cuttin his palm to feel pain, and remember why he has to do what he’s doing.
- Entity’s arm animation: The arm wipes the blood on the Favourite’s face
Backstory: Klaus Lange was a lonely boy, abandoned by his parents at a young age he grew up alone, managing to survive by stealing food and money, he ended up being beaten by adults many times, no one understood how much he suffered, no one understood how cold those nights were. After he turned sixteen, Klaus decided to live in the nearby forest, the Black Forest, a dark and sunless place where nobody could find him. He stole an axe, a hammer and some nails, chopped down some trees and started to build a small shelter to live in, expanding it over time. When he was younger he grew up in those woods, he knew his way around, so when he needed something he went back to the town he used to survive in and steal some more. One day a man caught him stealing a saw, Klaus ran into the forest but the man followed him, Klaus wasn’t very fast at the time, he didn’t feel the need to be till then, the man tackled him and started to beat Klaus to death, the young man was scared, he knew that this disgusting drunk man wasn't going to let him go after a beating, he had to react, Klaus grabbed the saw, pressed it against the man’s side and cut him deeply. The old man cried in pain while Klaus started to get to his senses. Klaus looked at the saw, fascinated by the blood, he smiled, walked up to the man and cut his head off, this started to become an habit, a hobby for him. Luring people in the foggy, dark forest and killing them every time in different, sometimes quick sometimes painful ways, it became fun, he never wanted to stop. When he was twenty three the second world war started, he was upset seeing all those possible preys going away, but then he found a perfect opportunity, the jews. One day he noticed three soldiers chasing a couple of people, seeing the opportunity he decided to help the two, he grabbed an axe and killed the three soldiers and hid the bodies, he then brought the two to his small shelter and they explained him how things were. He was happy, he could use this two poor souls to lure in more prey, he managed to convince one of the two to go and tell others to come to the Black Forest, he convinced them he had good intentions and that it was safe, since no one knew someone was living inside this forest, except maybe for some local legends. Shortly after the man left he killed his wife using one of the bayonets he stole from the soldiers’ corpses, as a sign of gratitude he made sure she died quickly. When the man came back with three others, Klaus told him that his wife went to take a bath at a small lake located nearby. The man went in the direction Klaus pointed towards, he did find a lake, a lake of blood and rotting corpses, once he came back two of the others were already dead, Klaus smiled and killed the last one by crushing her head with an axe, the jew tried to attack him but Klaus was stronger now, much stronger than the boy he was, and easily overpowered the man and again, as a sign of gratitude, chopped his head with the axe quickly. At that moment Klaus felt something behind him, something watching, something dark, he looked around seeing nothing, he decided not to risk investigating, then he hid the bodies and went to sleep. Many more came and died by Klaus’s hands. Then one day a family arrived, the father was an honest man who lived his life baking, the mother was a simple lady who enjoyed knitting clothes, and a daughter of twenty one years of age. Klaus decided to keep them alive for a while, using the mother to make him some new clothes from yarn he stole for the winter. The young woman became very fond of him, Klaus somehow managed to care about her enough to remember her name, Ariela Benario was her name. The two of them started to grow close, this scared Klaus so one night he decided to finally put an end to it. He grabbed the bayonet and proceeded to stab the father repeatedly, the mother woke up and screamed, Klaus grabbed her by the throat and started to choke her. Scared and thinking a german soldier came into the house, Ariela, grabbed one of her mother’s knitting pins, when seeing it was Klaus she was destroyed, in anger for her betrayal she sunk the pin into Klaus’s head almost reaching the other side of his skull, destroying memories and altering his mind. The room quickly filled with a cold, dark fog. Klaus woke up in a dark place, a faint orange light appeared, the Entity arrived. Something was different in Klaus, everytime he was put into a trial he would just stand by, watching the survivors in silence. The Entity knew he had the most talent for killing out of every human it ever laid it’s “eyes” on, it wanted him to help it eat, but every torture it put Klaus through didn’t work, every pain it caused he endured. It began to grow tired of this, it considered many times to dump him into the Void. At that point Klaus looked up, staring straight at it.
“I have a proposal”.
Height: 2.28 meters.
Terror radius: The lack of will to kill makes the Favourite’s terror radius smaller than most killer being at 24 meters at the start of the match, and getting down to 18 meters when the second Entity’s arm comes out when out of a chase.
Base speed: 110%
- Creatures of the Fog: Your close connection to the Entity makes it so it will change the world in your favour. Crows when alerted have a 25/50/75% chance of following a survivor for 50 second and they will give a notification every 25/15/10 seconds when the killer is within 16/24/36 meters from the affected survivor.
“Animals have always been kind to me. I guess they learned I was the one bringing the corpses” ~ Klaus Lange
- Fear of the Void: You saw what would happen if you didn’t follow the orders. For every 60/40/20 seconds you don’t find a survivor you will gain token to a max of 3, every token will give you a 3/4/5% boost in movement speed, this boost will be lost once you start a chase.
“That place...was even darker than the forest” ~ Klaus Lange
- Experienced: You have been living this life for a long time, so you found some tricks of your own. When in a chase, after a survivor vaults over a window or a pallet 5/4/3 times within 12/16/20 meters from you the perk will activate, you’ll be able to see pallets and windows auras within 24 meters from you, you can then use the active ability button (Dead Hard’s) to block a pallet or window of your choice for 20 second.
“Ten years of doing the same thing over and over makes one good at it” ~ Klaus Lange
Mori animation: Five “Entity’s arms” come out of the Favourite’s back, four of those stab into the survivor’s arms and legs raising the survivor from the ground, then the fifth arm stabs the survivor in the stomach and throws him/her to the ground. While the survivor is getting killed, the Favourite will look down and say “If you see me again...run faster”.
Edit: Changed a small portion of the power.
Edit 2: Changed the power further.
Edit 3: Expanded slightly on the backstory to understand the reason why he doesn't feel the need to kill anymore without needing explanation.
