Lisa Sherwood

From Dead by Daylight Wiki
(Redirected from Hag)
Jump to: navigation, search
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?

Lisa Sherwood or "The Hag" is one of 16 Killers IconHelpLoading killer.png currently featured in Dead by Daylight IconHelp DBDlogo.png.

She was introduced as the Killer of CHAPTER III: Of Flesh and Mud, a Chapter DLC released on 8 December 2016.


The Hag is a cursed Killer, able to place Phantasm Traps and then teleport to them upon activation, using her Power.

Her personal Perks, Hex: The Third Seal IconPerks hexTheThirdSeal.png, Hex: Ruin IconPerks hexRuin.png & Hex: Devour Hope IconPerks hexDevourHope.png, apply crippling penalties to Survivors as long as the associated Totem remains uncleansed.

Her Perks revolve around a new game play mechanic: the Hex Totems. They are focused on cursing the Survivors and sapping their abilities. The curse lasts until the Survivors manage to track the Hex Totem down and cleanse it.

Difficulty rating: Intermediate (Developer) / Hard (Community)
(based on the amount of time and effort that is required to properly learn to play her and use her Power effectively)


HA charPreview.png

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.

The Hag's Perks

These are Perks which start off only appearing in The Hag's Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png. 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

Once obtained, other Killers will be able to find The Hag's Perks in their respective Bloodwebs from that point onwards

Icon Name Description
Hex: The Third Seal

A Hex that hinders one's Aura-reading ability.

Hitting a Survivor while the Hex Totem is active applies the Blindness IconStatusEffects vision.png Status Effect.

This effect applies to the last 2/3/4 Survivors hit.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png is standing.

"She touched your skin, you bear the witch's mark!"

Unique to The Hag until Level 30, at which point its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Killers.

Hex: Ruin

A Hex that affects the Survivors' skills at repairing Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png.

All Survivors are affected by Ruin, which causes the following:

  • Good Skill Checks result in 3/4/5 % regression on the Generator.
  • Great Skill Checks grant 0 % bonus progression on the Generator.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png is standing.

"A curse is upon you. It will cause your ruin."

Unique to The Hag until Level 35, at which point its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Killers.

Hex: Devour Hope

A Hex rooting its power on hope. The false hope of Survivors ignites your hunger.

When a Survivor is rescued from a Hook at least 24 metres away, Devour Hope receives a Token.

  • 2 Tokens: Gain a 3/4/5 % Haste IconStatusEffects haste.png Status Effect 10 seconds after hooking a Survivor, for a duration of 10 seconds.
  • 3 Tokens: Survivors suffer from the Exposed IconStatusEffects exposed.png Status Effect.
  • 5 Tokens: Grants the ability to kill Survivors by your own hand.

The Hex effects persist as long as the related Hex Totem IconHelpLoading totem.png is standing.

"If you do nothing, you have their blood on your hands. If you save them, her hunger grows."

Unique to The Hag until Level 40, at which point its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Killers.


Weapon: The Claw

HA Claw01.png

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

  • Unlike most other Killers who wipe their Weapons clean, she lets the blood from her Claw drip into her mouth after hitting a Survivor.
    • This is similar to The Hillbilly IconHelpLoading hillbilly.png and The Cannibal IconHelpLoading cannibal.png who also let the blood drip from their Hammers, but onto the ground.

Power: Blackened Catalyst

Source of The Hag's power, a blackened finger used as a catalyst for her terrible power.

The Blackened Catalyst is The Hag's main Power: she bends and shapes mud to her will. With simple ritualistic drawings, she creates deceitful duplicates of herself made from mud and decay which she can use for various effects.

Drawing a Phantasm Trap works very similar to setting down a Bear Trap. She can have up to 10 Traps at once distributed across the map, with each subsequently set Trap removing the oldest one.

Her Phantasm Traps also allow to instantly travel up to 40 metres but are vulnerable to Flashlights as they will burn a Phantasm Trap away and thus destroy it.

  • Grants the ability to create and maintain 10 Phantasm Traps.
  • Grants the ability to instantly travel to triggered Phantasms when within 40 metres of range.
  • Survivors who enter the trap area trigger a Phantasm of The Hag to appear and disorient the Survivor.

Power Trivia

  • It takes The Hag 2 seconds to set a Phantasm Trap per default.
  • A tripped Phantasm Trap lasts for 5.5 seconds per default.

The Hag is currently part of 1 DLC package:

Available DLC


  • The English name Lisa, a shortened version of Elizabeth, means "God's oath; God's promise" or "consecrated to God."
    • Sherwood is of Old English origin and means "from the bright forest" or "bright forest"; in Celtic, it means "wild."
    • Sherwood is also the name of the forest in which the legendary outlaw Robin Hood made his home.
  • 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 movement speed is the second slowest for Killers (110 % of Survivor running 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 IconHelpLoading totem.png. Cleansing these totems will effectively disable her perks.
  • The Hag is the second Killer who is able to place traps, but unlike the Trapper IconHelpLoading trapper.png, 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 IconHelpLoading nurse.png, 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 most 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 IconHelpLoading nurse.png are the only two Killers to break Pallets IconHelp pullDown.png and damage Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png with their hand.
  • The Hag has a Terror Radius of just 24 metres.
  • The Hag's Phantasms always wear the same customisation option as The Hag herself.
  • The Hag was leaked a couple of weeks prior to her release due to the new Daily Rituals IconHelp dailyRituals.png already having been assigned to some players.
  • The Hag became a Killer as a sort of second chance, granted to her as an alternative over death by The Entity, after she sought help by drawing the symbols with her last breaths.


  • The Hag's perks are tied to only one totem each. Totems with a Hag perk tied to them have a lit candle, and they can also be seen like a generator.
  • The Hag's profile is low to the ground, which you can use to your advantage if you are in areas with tall obstacles that Survivors 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 Survivors сrouch.
    • Traps placed using the Scarred Hand FulliconAddon scarredHand.png will still have collision.
  • Guard objectives by placing traps around generators, totems, gates, etc.
  • You can also use the Hag's traps more aggressively, by placing traps near pallets and windows near objectives, so if you do chase someone, you have the advantage of travelling through obstacles instantly.
  • Like the Trapper IconHelpLoading trapper.png, the Hag's traps can be seen if they are out on the open, especially under bright light or on a clean surface. It is recommended that you place traps in grass or behind line of sight.
  • You can play mind games with Survivors: A Survivor may run from a triggered trap, but instead of teleporting to it, you can attack the Survivor normally as they run from the Phantasm.
  • Traps will create a false Terror Radius when triggered, even without The Granma's Heart FulliconAddon granmasHeart.png Add-on. You can use this to approach the area of a triggered trap without Survivors knowing you are doing so.
    • The Granma's Heart FulliconAddon granmasHeart.png Add-on will fully mask your Terror Radius, however, making this much easier to do.
