The Wraith
Dbd-journal-wraith.png 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.
~ Benedict Baker's Journal, Nov. 1896 on The Wraith

Philip Ojomo or "The Wraith" is one of 8 Killers in Dead by Daylight.

Background[edit | edit source]

Philip Ojomo came to this country with nothing more than hope for a new beginning. He was more than satisfied when he was initially offered a job at Autohaven Wreckers by a large muscular man named Azarov. Bribed cops would turn a blind eye to somewhat shady business conducted at the scrap yard by Azarov but Ojomo didn't mind. He knew that he couldn't expect a luxurious lifestyle without working hard over a long period of time. So he pretended like it didn't exist. He had seen criminal activity up close in his homeland and as long as he didn't get involved, he'd let things be the way they were. He just fixed cars and handled the crusher, something he was particularly fond of. A car went in and a small, metallic cube came out. It was not until one shadowed evening that he, just by accident, noticed the tiniest slight of blood coming from the back of one of the uncrushed cars.

In silence, he slowly opened the trunk. Inside a young man, gagged with tied hands and panic filled eyes, clawed viciously at the walls attempting to escape what he surely thought was his executioner. With haste, Ojomo helped the man outside the trunk, using his makeshift pocket knife to free the kid's bonds. In fear, the victim took off running, knocking down a stack of tires and scattering a pile of food cans. He crashed against the locked door to the garage, thrashing violently like a wild animal in an attempt to flee. Phillip Ojomo could barely move when his superior, Azarov, decided just at that moment to check up on him, swinging wide open the same door sending the man crashing and sprawling to the floor. It took Azarov less than a few seconds to swiftly grab the boy's neck and to squeeze it and contort it until he stopped breathing altogether. Then, with unnatural calmness, Azarov picked him up and placed him back in the car's trunk and slammed the lid. And he told Ojomo to do his job like usual.

And that's when it clicked with Phillip. He was never a car crusher nor a mainstream mechanic. The boy was initially right: Ojomo was his executioner. He had been crushing the victims of Azarov's twisted gang of criminals the whole time. Each new car, a new victim tucked away within the vehicle. It made too much sense. In anger, Ojomo lashed out. When Azarov turned his back, Ojomo grabbed a nearby crowbar. He swung the bent end at the back of Azarov's neck, lodging it between his collarbone and neck and pulled hard. Azarov crumpled under the assault and was knocked immediately unconscious. But Ojomo didn't stop. Aiming for the head, he bashed the crowbar against his former boss's skull again and again and again and again until all that was left was a wet mess of what could only be described as red flesh.

That's all the shoddy security cameras captured before they cut out. By the time someone found Azarov, his spinal coloumn had been removed and the wet mess left behind of his head contained very limited amounts of skull fragments; most of it bizarrely removed. Phillip Ojomo from that point on simply vanished and was never seen again.

Wraith's Perks[edit | edit source]

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

  • Predator - level 30
  • Bloodhound - level 35
  • Shadowborn - level 40

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

The Wraith is all about tracking and hunting Survivors, making it easier to catch and kill.

Icon Name Description
IconPerks predator.png
Predator

Your acute tracking ability allows you to follow disturbances left by passing prey over a longer period of time. Footstep marks stay visible 1/2/3 seconds longer than normal.

"Never stop moving and hope you're always two steps ahead of the beast." -Notebook

Unique to Wraith until level 30, which its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Killers.

IconPerks bloodhound.png
Bloodhound

Like a hunting scent hound, you smell traces of blood at a great distance. Fresh blood marks are slightly/moderately/considerably more discernible than normal and can be tracked for 2/3/4 seconds seconds longer than normal.

"Pebbles shimmering in the moonlight; my life drips down in a trail so easy to follow."

Unique to Wraith until level 35, which its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Killers

IconPerks shadowborn.png
Shadowborn

You have a keen vision in the darkness of the night. Your vision is 25/30/35 % clearer and your field of view is unaffected/slightly/considerably wider than normal. However, highly sensitive to light, you get blinded 20% faster than normal and take 50% more time to recover from this condition.

"Shining in the darkest dark, his eyes pierce the night and sting your soul."

Unique to Wraith until level 40, which its Teachable version can then be learned and taught to the other Killers.

Azarov's Skull[edit | edit source]

framless

Azarov's Skull is the primary weapon of the Wraith. The teeth of death lie on Azarov's skull and spine.

  • If he hits a survivor, the Wraith will wipe off the blood on the blades with his fingers.
  • He used to wipe the blood off his arm like the Trapper with the same animation.

Wailing Bell[edit | edit source]

FulliconPowers bell.png

A heavy cast iron bell imbued with ancient powers. Allows the user to enter and walk the spirit world when rung.

  • Ring the bell for about 1.5 seconds to become cloaked and almost completely invisible.
  • While invisible:
    • Move slightly faster.
    • Survivors no longer hear the heartbeat notifier.
    • He cannot interact.
    • Ring the bell again to decloak after about 2 seconds and a brief self-slow.
  • Survivors can hear the Wraith's bell-ringing within a 64 meter radius , but cannot tell which direction it is coming from unless they are very close.
    • The Wraith is barely visible, with an identity similar to the Predator, and his grunts can be heard if he is standing right next to a survivor.

Tips[edit | edit source]

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 when you're cloaked, so use cloak to get close without Survivors 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 shone 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 "wooosh" sound accompanying a successful cloak/uncloak is still heard globally.
