The Hag
A new terror stalks the darkness; her appearance strikes me as more intense than the others after but a glimpse of her haggard silhouette. Twisted and torn in unspeakable ways, with greyish dead skin stretched out over her emaciated body. Her arm is a horrid overgrown deformity capable of slashing through both flesh and bone alike. Her very presence speaks of endless torture similar to mine. I wonder - did she refuse the entity's calling until broken or did she wish for this?
~ Unknown (Potentially Benedict Baker)

Lisa Sherwood or "The Hag" is one of 8 Killers in Dead by Daylight.

She was featured as a part of the "Of Flesh and Mud" Chapter.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Hag, unlike the other killers, has no sort of weapon. Instead, she uses her deformed hand to swipe at survivors and break pallets. Akin to the Nurse, the Hag has the ability to teleport, although in a much more different way. Similar to the Trapper, the Hag must use traps, which in her case are mud drawings on the ground in the shape of a triangle. Without any add-ons, she can place 10 of them in any location. If a Survivor comes within a certain range of one, a fake version of the Hag will jump out of where the trap was. The real Hag, if in range, can then teleport to that specific location to chase the player, although there is a small delay before the Hag can interact after the teleport. The Hag can also teleport to an unused trap, but it consumes the trap. The fake Hag produces the Stain and the Heartbeat, but it will disappear if the Hag does not teleport to it. Unlike the Trapper's bear traps, the Hag's cannot be sabotaged in the normal sense, but can be destroyed with a flashlight if aimed directly at the mud sigil.

Another mechanic unique to the Hag and her perks is the cleansing of Totems. Every match, Totems with skulls will appear at random locations. If a skull with a lit candle is cleansed by a survivor, it will remove one of the Hag's perks. It is advised to do so, as the Hag has some interesting yet devastating perks, one of which affects the generators in a negative way. It does make noise when broken, however, and skulls without lit candles do not remove a perk, making it a potentially lethal waste of time. You still get bloodpoints for cleansing.

Background[edit | edit source]

Lisa Sherwood grew up in a quiet village, mainly isolated from the rest of civilization. The people of the hamlet were kind and the elders kept old traditions alive, often keeping the peace by personally settling the ever-rare disputes. Lisa was particularly fond of the charms they taught her to draw for safety and good fortune. One night, as she was walking home through the woods, a terrible storm struck without warning. Howling winds whipped at her hair as she stumbled through the swamp, her rain-drenched dress plastered to her skin. In the slick, wet mud she lost her footing, careening backwards and striking her head against rock. Slipping in and out of consciousness, she strained to identify the dark shapes approaching her from between the trees. That's the last thing she could remember.

Her kidnappers kept her chained to the wall in a flooded cellar. Though dimly lit, she could see others whose large open wounds swarmed with flies. It took merely a day before they returned, carving chunks from the prisoners' bodies with rusted blades, consuming their very flesh down to the bone. Most she saw did not survive long once the cannibals targeted them but somehow, deep within, Lisa persisted. Starved, infected, and mutilated after several weeks of torture, her gaunt arms became loose in their shackles. She pulled hard, the metal tearing through skin and muscle until she was free. Her flesh oozed viscous yellow pus and bones were visible beneath gangrenous wounds. She could go no further. Delirious, she thought of home; she thought of the elders. With her dying breath, she etched the symbols they had taught her into the floor using what remained of her fingers. Almost in response, a dark hunger stirred inside her. It yearned for blood. In oath, she chose vengeance.

The village's search party eventually brought them to an old shack in a swamp. Inside, its previous inhabitants had been viciously dismembered and devoured by an unidentifiable animal. In the cellar, amid rotting corpses and disconnected flesh, the elders’ charms were scrawled in blood on the floor. Lisa’s body was not among the bodies and was never found. The village was never the same again.

Hag's Perks[edit | edit source]

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

  • Hex: The Third Seal - level 30
  • Hex: Ruin - level 35
  • Hex: Devour Hope - level 40

If obtained other Killers are able to find the Hag's perks in their Bloodwebs from that point on.

The Hag perks revolve around a new gameplay mechanic: the Hex totems. They are focused on cursing the survivors and sapping their abilities. The curse last until the survivors manage to track the Hex totem down and tear it down.

The Claw[edit | edit source]

HA Claw01.png
The Claw is a Primary Weapon for the Hag. A horridly overgrown deformity, clawing its way through flesh and bone.

  • In the main menu view, you can't see her claw.

Blackened Catalyst[edit | edit source]

FulliconPowers blackenedCatalyst.png

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • The Hag is the first killer whose Memento Mori animation takes place in third person rather than from her own perspective.
  • The Hag is the first killer that doesn't attack with an actual weapon, instead using her massive claw.
  • The Hag's profile is smaller than the other killers, making it much harder for survivors to spot her, but also making it harder for her to see survivors past objects.
  • The Hag's move speed is the second slowest killer (110% of survivor run speed), only a little faster than the Nurse.
  • The Hag is the first killer whose perks are directly associated with a destructible item on the map, 'totems'. Cleansing these totems will effectively disable her perks.
  • The Hag is the second killer who is able to place traps, but unlike the Trapper, she doesn't need to collect them from the map and instead can have up to 10 traps placed at any one time.
  • The Hag is also the second killer who can teleport, but unlike the Nurse, survivors have to come within range of her traps and she needs to be close enough to a triggered trap before it expires in order to teleport.
  • Unlike all other killers, the Hag doesn't step through windows, but rather jumps through them.
  • The Hag seems to be heavily based on the Wendigo, an Algonquian myth that says those who commit cannibalism will become possessed by spirits, deformed and eventually turn insane. This is suggested by The Hag's appearance, Memento Mori, backstory, and a few Hag-related items in the game which talk about cannibalism.
  • The Hag is the shortest killer
  • The Hag and the Nurse are the only two killers to not break the Pull-Downs/damage the Generators with their foot, but with their hand instead.
  • The Hag is one of 5 Killers without glowing eyes, the others being the Trapper, the Nurse, the Shape and the Huntress.
  • The Hag does not have a standard 32 meter Terror Radius size, instead having one of only 28 meters.
  • Due to technical limitations, the Phantasms, like the Doctor's Doctor Illusions, always wear the default customisation.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • The Hag's perks are tied to only one totem each. Totems with a Hag perk tied to them have a lit candle, which you can use to determine whether a totem is worth taking the time to cleanse.
  • The Hag's vision is low to the ground, which you can use to your advantage if you are in areas with tall obstacles that she can't see past.
  • The Hag's traps can be destroyed by the use of a Flashlight
  • The Hag's traps will not trigger if you сrouch.
  • Watch your step for the traps
