Lore

StoreBackground KS.png

Jeff Johansen was born and raised in Ormond, Alberta. He grew up as a quiet, only child with an aversion for large crowds. During High School, his anxious nature was mislabelled as shyness, which he covered up with a tough, stoic persona that intimidated bullies and teachers alike. At home, he discovered an interest for heavy metal and started a vinyl collection. The evocative symbolism on the covers inspired him to make some art of his own, which helped him cope with his parents' constant fighting.

To escape his parent's increasingly recurrent blow-ups, Jeff started working at a video store. Few customers passed by, so he had a lot of free time to draw. A late-night regular noticed his sketches and asked him to do some artwork for his gang at the abandoned lodge up Mount Ormond. Jeff accepted the challenge and painted a large mural depicting "The Legion" in runny, bloody letters. He was given a fifty-dollar bill and a 12-pack for his hard work. It was his first paid commission, a milestone to be proud of.

After his parents' divorce, Jeff was forced to move with his mother to Winkler, Manitoba, which was miles away from his home town—and his dad. In Winkler, Jeff was more isolated than ever, expect for art and music. His solace came shortly after graduating High School when he started working at a local bar with live music performances. He found a roadie gig shortly after, leaving Winkler behind.

A few years later, Jeff got injured after getting involved in a fight during a concert. He was told he could lose part of his eyesight, so his doctor asked him to stay in town in order to monitor him. It was a difficult time during which Jeff re-assessed his life choices.

He went back to school—art school. His eyesight slowly returned, but he had to be careful. He took a few courses, experimenting with a wide range of mediums, ultimately choosing oil painting and digital art, the latter of which offered paid intern-ships. He took up a desk job and found his calling in designing labels for microbreweries. He led a quiet, simple life: he brewed beer, took-in a rescue dog, designed tattoos, and freelanced album covers for bands he liked. All until one morning, when he got a phone call from Ormond saying that his father had passed, leaving a few things to sort out.

Jeff drove all the way back to Ormond. He felt a pang of nostalgia when he reached his late father's house. Inside, there was an old guitar case sitting in against the wall. It held a black, vintage model with a sticky note that said, "for my boy."

He stayed in town longer than he planned to, reminiscing about his childhood. Driving by his former High School, he remembered the mural he painted up Mount Ormond. He bought a 12-pack and headed to the lodge.

After weeks of not hearing back from Jeff, his colleagues assumed that grief had gotten the better of him. His neighbour got tired of sitting his dog, which became more and more agitated as days went by. The dog became a stray again, erring while seeking the familiar trail of Jeff's malty scent.


Jeff's Perks

These are Perks which start off only appearing in Jeff's Bloodweb IconHelp bloodweb.png. After achieving Level 30, Teachable versions of these Perks can be found:

Breakdown.gif
Breakdown

Any time you are unhooked or unhook yourself, the Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png breaks and the Killer's Aura IconHelp auras.png is shown to you for 4/5/6 seconds.

"'Charge from the Belly of the Beast.'
Here's a sketch/painting on a piece of wood I saw by the side of this road. I felt like it got a story to tell. And it didn't waste its second chance." — Jeff, ink and oil wash on slice of wood, 12x16

Aftercare.gif
Aftercare

Unlocks potential in one's Aura-reading ability.

You see the Aura IconHelp auras.png of every Survivor that:

  • You rescued from a Hook IconHelpLoading hook.png or who rescued you from one.
  • You completed a Healing action on or who completed one on you.

They also see your Aura.

This occurs for up to 1/2/3 Survivor(s). All effects of Aftercare are reset when you are hooked by the Killer.

"'A Mercy that Rips the Storm.'
Oil work to honour my best buddies who happen to be the best musicians I know. Their first album is still my favourite. It got me through a dark time in my life." — Jeff, oil on canvas, 16x16

Distortion.gif
Distortion

You start the Trial with 3 Tokens.

When your Aura IconHelp auras.png would be shown to the Killer, the Perk activates and a Token is consumed.

For the next 6/8/10 seconds while the Perk is activated, your Aura and Scratch Marks will not be shown to the Killer.

Distortion does not activate when you are in the Dying State IconHelp dying.png or affected by Traps.

"'Death Fooled by the Cloak of Falcon Feathers.'
Sketch inspired by a few sleepless nights during winter. Exploration of Norse mythology: bravery can conceal your flaws, even when you are at your most vulnerable." — Jeff, pencil on tone paper, 12x12
