|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)
- Additional Lore can be found in Tome IV - Conviction: The Algebra of Infinite Night.
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 scrap 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.

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

Once obtained, other Killers will be able to find The Wraith's Perks in their respective Bloodwebs from that point onwards.
Your acute tracking ability allows you to hone in on disturbances left by running Survivors.
Scratch Marks left by Survivors will spawn // closer together.
"Never stop moving and hope you're always two steps ahead of the beast." — Unknown, Notebook
Like a hunting scent hound, you smell traces of blood at a great distance.
Fresh Blood Stains are considerably more discernible than normal and can be tracked for 2/3/4 seconds longer than normal.
"Pebbles shimmering in the moonlight; my life drips down in a trail so easy to follow."
You have a keen vision in the darkness of the night.
Your Field of View is increased by 9/12/15 °.

The Wraith is currently part of 3 DLC packages:
- YouTubers/Streamers Exclusives - Ohmwrecker Exclusive
- When cloaked, Survivors only see a shimmer moving throughout the Map. Less perceptive Survivors may not realise his proximity to them until it is too late.
- Standing still for a moment when cloaked turns him completely invisible.
- Keep your distance when stalking Survivors to get the jump on them.
- A cloaked Wraith still has collision. You can use this to body-block Windows and narrow escape routes while uncloaking and preparing to attack the Survivor.
- 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 Wailing Bell can only be heard by Survivors who are very close-by and is silent when further away. The *Woosh* sound accompanying a successful cloak/uncloak can be heard a bit farther away.
- If you are chasing a Survivor and gain too much ground on you, it is a good idea to cloak and chase after them. The Wraith moves considerably faster when cloaked and close distances more quickly. It also makes it harder for the fleeing Survivor to keep track of you.
- If a Survivor uses Dead Hard , you can bait its use by tapping the Wailing Bell, making the Survivor think you are going for a swing, prompting them to use the Perk prematurely.
- The last name "Ojomo" is of Nigerian origin, meaning "change", "freedom", "risk".
- New Lore from Tome IV - Conviction confirmed his Nigerian origin and history.
- The Wraith is affiliated with the Autohaven Wreckers Realm in the Lore.
- The Wraith is possibly inspired by Grim Reaper tropes, as he carries a scythe, causes a Bell to toll, and can hide himself from the Survivors.
- The Wraith's Alpha name was "Banshee".
- In the Game files, he is sometimes nicknamed "Bob".
- Just before The Wraith swings his Weapon, a Xylophone-like rattling noise can be heard as he lifts it above his head.
- 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.
- The Entity imbued The Wraith's father's Wailing Bell with its powers during The Wraith's transition into a Killer.
