Dwight Fairfield is one of 11 Survivors in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.



Dwight was geeky and scrawny through high school. He always wanted to be one of the cool kids, but somehow never had the charisma. He tried out for the football team but was cut, the basketball team didn't even take a look, and his grades were distinctly below average. One weekend, on a team building exercise from his dead-end job, Dwight's boss led them deep into the woods before breaking out his family recipe moonshine. Dwight remembered taking the first sip before waking up late the next morning all alone. During the night, the others had abandoned him. Once again, the laughing stock of the community Dwight tried to hike his way out of the woods. That was the last anyone ever heard of Dwight Fairfield.

Dwight isn't the typical guy you think of when someone says "Survivor". He lacks that certain pizazz and without his glasses he's more or less blind. But as the sun sets and the woods comes alive, Dwight clasps to his rat race life, making sure that he'll live to see another day even though something unimaginable is after him. Dwight won't stop. He'll survive no matter what. As others spent hours being seen in high school. He spent hours becoming invisible and avoiding danger. And it doesn't matter if it's dangers in the hallway or dangers in the woods. Survival is key. As other employees panic when terror infects them, Dwight makes use of his disturbing teen experience. The tables have now turned and now others need to follow to Dwight's firm directions if they are to survive as he knows how to disappear.

Dwight's Perks

These are perks which start off only appearing in Dwight's Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png. After achieving level 30, teachable versions of these perks can be found:

  • Bond - level 30
  • Prove Thyself - level 35
  • Leader - level 40

If obtained other survivors are able to find Dwight's perks in their Bloodwebs from that point on.

Dwight is skilled at finding others and working as a group. His perks help him and others, by keeping them together and alive. Thus, this means that Dwight's perks are centered around others.
