Her personal Perks, Corrupt Intervention IconPerks corruptIntervention.png, Infectious Fright IconPerks infectiousFright.png, and Dark Devotion IconPerks darkDevotion.png, give her the ability to hinder Survivor objectives, while simultaneously confusing and frightening those within her presence.

Difficulty rating: Intermediate

(based on the amount of time and effort that is required to properly learn to play her and use her Power effectively)


Lore

Additional Lore can be found in Tome VII - Forsaken: The Maiden Guard.

When she was five years old, Adiris, the youngest of a family of seven, was left on the brick-red burning steps of the Temple of Purgation at the centre of Babylon. To process her shock and sorrow, she held onto the belief that the Gods had a plan for her. Her new life was one of quiet servitude. She would tend to the gardens, prepare ceremonial meals, and polish ceremonial incense burners. At night, she would pray for a sign that would reveal her purpose.

When she came of age, she attended the high-ranking priests during the yearly worshipping of the sea-goat, the God of Water and Creation. Swinging a censer down the great hypo-style hall, she cast thick black fumes that reached the cold towering stone pillars before dissipating. Her worries lifted, and the resulting bliss made her feel closer to the Gods than ever. She worked herself to the bone each day that followed, fulfilling her duties while taking on new ones, as she aided the priests during purification rituals.

The priests were more and more in need of assistance. Cleansings were being performed daily to answer the demand from outside the high temple walls, where a catastrophic plague had resurfaced. Within months, the priests contracted the disease. It did not take long before they became too weak to perform any kind of ritual. Adiris, having assisted many purification rituals, was the only one able to carry on. The swelling panic had to be contained, even if by a novice.

Anxious before her first ceremony, Adiris visited the priests' sanctuary chamber. When she lit the candles, she noticed a narrow opening at the back. Sliding through the gap, she reached a crypt hidden under the sanctuary. The chamber was bare except for the golden statue of a woman, who stood with outstretched hands, her fingers covered in jewels. It was the sign Adiris had been waiting for.

The great hall was packed with followers who bowed down as Adiris entered. She strode to the brick altar and grabbed a ceremonial dagger forged in silver, her ruby ringed fingers wrapping around the blade like claws. The sudden display of luxury intrigued the followers, who were struck already by her youth and beauty.

As she began reciting the Epic of Creation, a woman at the back swooned and collapsed. Adiris rushed to her and noticed the black blisters covering her feet. Without hesitation, Adiris grabbed her sacred blade and swung it at her own foot, severing a toe. Then she offered the bloody part to the Gods, asking them to protect the woman. A silence fell over the followers, who revered Adiris as their new priestess.

Tales of her wealth, beauty, and devotion began to spread across the city as quickly as the disease. Soon, Adiris' followers called her the High Priestess of Babylon.

But her faith was tried when she showed the first signs of infection; her cough became a mix of phlegm and blood, her neck erupted in abscesses, and her four-toed foot darkened. Ashamed of her condition, she began wearing a veiled headpiece and carried a censer that masked the rancid smell of sick that clang to her skin. Hoping to be saved, she kept performing the rituals, offering blessed water and food to her followers.

But no ritual could save her. In a desperate attempt to appease the Gods, Adiris banished herself from the city. She traveled north with a few followers, venturing through the cold woodlands of Urashtu, until it was no longer possible to walk.

They camped in a damp cave, where Adiris lay in a pool of vomit. Her foot, which had turned black, was so swollen she could not go any further. Her followers and she realised the truth in that cave: they were all infected with the plague.

Kneeling among her retching followers, Adiris made one last prayer. The black fumes of incense rose into the damp air before being wiped off by a cold breeze.

Neither the body of Adiris nor those of her followers were ever found. Many told tales of her return, but no one truly knew what fate had befallen the High Priestess of Babylon.

Trivia

  • The Plague was the sixth female Killer.
  • The Plague, unlike most Killers, has no weapon-wipe animation due to her Weapon being a censer swinging from her hand.
  • The Plague was the second Killer with just a first name.
  • The Plague was the first Killer to speak an actual (albeit dead) language.
  • The Plague was the second Killer to break Pallets IconHelp pullDown.png and damage Generators IconHelpLoading generators.png with her Weapon.
  • The Plague audibly swallows her vomit back down when cancelling her Power manually.
  • The Incense Burner was jokingly referred to as "The Onion" by the Developers, due to remarks made by the Community on its shape in the first Teaser.

Lore Trivia

  • The Plague is to-date the oldest Killer in Dead by Daylight, coming from Babylonia (1895-539 BC), a state based in central-southern Mesopotamia, an ancient Kingdom in the region of present-day Iraq.
  • The Plague took on the role of High Priestess after the other Priests succumbed to the plague in order to support her city.
  • Playing as The Plague, one can see the ruby-ringed fingers mentioned in her Lore, which she got from the gold-adorned goddess statue in The Temple of Purgation.
  • The Plague's name, "Adiris", means persistence, resourcefulness and empathy.
    • This is fitting with her personality and motivations in her Lore.
    • The Plague is also the only Killer to have willingly sacrificed herself to The Entity IconHelp entity.png in an attempt to save her people from the plague.
  • A gold Tablet inside the Temple is inscribed with Akkadian cuneiform.
    The inscription consists of five repeating glyphs.
    The glyphs read as Dingir I-ti-n Sîn, representing "Iddin-Sin", King of the Kingdom of Simurrum, an important city state in Mesopotamia[1], where Adiris originates from.
    TabletInscription.png
  • It is speculated that The Plague speaks the sentence Adda ni ka dingir asar po me in her Mori animation, which roughly translates to Send them to your mouth, God.
