PARAGRAPH II: LEATHERFACE™, also known as CHAPTER 5.5: LEATHERFACE™ was the second Paragraph DLC for Dead by Daylight .
Since it was released in-between CHAPTERS V and VI, it was eventually renamed to CHAPTER 5.5 when the Developers abandoned the practice of naming single-character DLCs "Paragraphs".
This DLC features:
As the saw starts...
What happens when the body grows but the mind can't keep up? A child's fears and anxiety, but trapped inside a fully grown man's body. A furious body wielding a chainsaw? Someone who knows what happens as you disobey your family. What happens if anyone finds out what's in the stew.

Leatherface is not only the skin clad maniac with a disturbed mind. He seeks acceptance and appreciation. He's learned the hard way and was molded to what he now is. A watchdog, a guardian, a blind gate keeper who never questions. And all problems can be solved with his chainsaw.

- CHAPTER 5.5: LEATHERFACE™ was originally going to be a full Chapter DLC, with Kate Denson being the Survivor associated with The Cannibal. However, due to severe time and resource restrictions the Developers were facing due to the release of CHAPTER VI: A Nightmare on Elm Street™ just a month later, according to them, they had to cut Kate for the time being (she was subsequently added to CHAPTER VIII: Curtain Call with The Clown ) and downgrade the LEATHERFACE Chapter to just a Paragraph. This is also noticeable by The Cannibal's initial lack of personal Add-ons and sharing them with The Hillbilly with the exception of just four, which was ultimately remedied with the Hillbilly and Cannibal Rework in Patch 4.1.0.
