Late January 2019
|“||There's another apparition, more terrifying than anything I've ever seen, hunting amongst the shadows here. It moves like a silhouette, appearing and disappearing at the sound of a dreaded bell. It's impossible to track it. Several times it has caught me without me even seeing it closing in. Often convinced I have my back covered, it has promptly materialized right behind me to strike from close range. Stay still and watch the fog. Don't move, don't blink and for god's sake don't breathe. If you can control your fear long enough and can show self control, sometimes it is possible to see its shimmer as it glides forward if caught at just the right light. I pray for your safety.||„|

The Wraith is a stealth Killer, able to cloak and uncloak at the ringing of his Wailing Bell.
He is all about tracking and hunting Survivors, making it easier to catch and kill them.
Difficulty rating: Easy (Community) / Intermediate (Developer)
(based on the amount of time and effort that is required to properly learn to play him and use his Power effectively)
Philip Ojomo came to this country without anything than hope for a new beginning. He was happy as he got offered a job at Autohaven Wreckers. A small scarp yard where bribed cops turned a blind eye for the somewhat shady business that took place.
Ojomo didn't care. He had seen criminal activity up close in his homeland and as long as he didn't get involved, he let things be. He just fixed cars and handled the crusher. Something he did really well. A car went in and a small, metallic cube came out.
It was not until one gloomy day that he, just by accident, saw some blood coming from one of the un-crushed cars. As he opened the trunk he found a young man, gagged and with tied hands with panic filled eyes. Ojomo freed the man who managed to run ten feet before Ojomo's boss stopped him and slit his throat. As Ojomo demanded answers he got explained to him that he'd been nothing more than a simple executioner as more or less every car had a soul in them as this was a "service" the scrap yard provided to certain "clients".
Ojomo snapped and went ballistic. He threw his boss in the crusher and let it slowly compress, as the head stuck out, Ojomo grabbed it and pulled head and spine out of the body. Then he left and was never seen again.

Main article: Hints
- Standing still when cloaked will make him completely invisible. When he moves, he's barely noticeable as a shimmer moving across the map.
- Keep your distance when stalking Survivors to get the jump on them.
- You are unable to attack when cloaking/uncloaking so be wary of using it after putting a Survivor on a Hook as it gives them a brief window to rescue.
- Your terror radius is 0 metres when you're cloaked, so use the cloak to get close to Survivors without them hearing a Heartbeat sound.
- Block escape routes while uncloaking nearby a Survivor.
- Get directly behind a repairing Survivor while uncloaking to slow down their escape.
- Beware of Flashlights! Having one shined on you when you're uncloaking or invisible can stun you... even if you aren't looking at it.
- The bell can only be heard by Survivors who are very close-by and is silent when further away. The *Woosh*, accompanying a successful cloak/uncloak, can be heard a bit farther away.
- If you are chasing a Survivor and they jump over a window or get too far away turn invisible and track them, then when they think they lost you, reappear behind them and lunge attack them
- The Wraith is affiliated with the Autohaven Wreckers Realm in the Lore.
- He is possibly inspired by Grim Reaper tropes as he carries a scythe, causes a bell to toll, and can hide himself from humans.
- The Wraith's Alpha name was "Banshee".
- In the game files, he's also sometimes nicknamed "Bob".
- Just before the Wraith swings his weapon, a xylophone-like rattling noise can be heard as he lifts the spine.
- The Wraith's breathing sounds like a quiet, garbled growl, as if he had a congested throat.
- The Wraith is one of just two Killers suffering from a unique Game mechanic called Lightburn.
- If the cloaked Wraith is successfully lightburnt by with a Flashlight , he will get stunned and be forced out of his cloak.
- The Entity gifted him the Wailing Bell during his transition into a Killer.
- The Wraith became a Killer by killing his former boss out of revenge.
- If the cloaked Wraith gets stunned by a Pallet, he will get stunned and be forced out of his cloak.
- The Wraith is one of few Killers with glowing, potentially Entity-touched eyes. The others are Hillbilly , The Doctor and The Spirit .
