The Twins

A pair of conjoined twins from 17th century France, Charlotte and Victor Deshayes formed an emotional bond like none other. Born into a life of persecution, they fled to the countryside with their mother, Madeleine, accused by witch hunters of birthing demons. When the trio was finally caught, the children were forced to watch their mother burn before being sold to a mysterious group clad in black cloaks. Prisoners to the cult, they took part in unusual experiments, their animosity towards humanity growing each day. The pair eventually fled, in the process burning the cult’s temple to the ground. Though Charlotte ran to the safety of a nearby forest, her brother—still affixed to her body—died in the escape.

For years to come, Charlotte skulked through the alleys and sewers of France, stealing and finding shelter where she could, avoiding the black cloaks at all cost. She made sure to tend to the corpse of her rotting brother, seeing him as her only remaining family. During a frigid winter, Charlotte, weakened and starving, realized her time was coming to an end. As she gave into the comfort of death, a vicious shriek pierced her ears. Impossibly, Victor spasmed and flailed from her chest, spilling to the ground in a bloody puddle. Before she could react, the boy skittered into a dense, unnatural fog that grew around the two. Stunned, yet horrified at the thought of losing Victor, she charged into the fog, determined to reunite with her only kin.

Press and hold the Power button to unleash Victor.
Swap control between Charlotte and Victor by tapping the Ability button, causing her to fall into a Dormant State.

While Victor is unable to see Scratch Marks IconHelp scratchMarks.png, he sees any Pools of Blood IconStatusEffects bleeding.png left by injured Survivors in bright red.

While left on his own, Victor will trigger Killer Instinct on any walking or running Survivors who can hear his Shrieks, revealing their outlines to Charlotte.
However, Victor can be crushed by Survivors while Charlotte is being controlled.

If crushed, Victor will re-grow on Charlotte after some time has passed (6 seconds).

While controlling Victor, hold the Ability button to charge a Pounce and tap the Attack button to unleash it.

Successfully landing a Pounce deals damage to the Survivor.
If the Survivor was at full health, Victor will latch onto them, afflicting them with the Broken IconStatusEffects broken.png, Oblivious IconStatusEffects oblivious.png, and Incapacitated IconStatusEffects incapacitated.png Status Effects, and control will swap to Charlotte.
If the Survivor was injured, Victor will instead down them without swapping control to Charlotte.

While latched on, Survivors are unable to enter Lockers IconHelp lockers.png or leave through the Exit Gates IconHelp exitGates.png, and will reveal the Aura IconHelp auras.png of nearby Survivors.
The afflicted Survivor can crush Victor while he is latched onto them by completing the Remove action (8 seconds).

If Victor misses his Pounce, he is momentarily vulnerable and can be crushed by a Survivor.
If Victor lands and stays on an obstacle taller than himself, he will be destroyed and re-grow on Charlotte.

Survivor: Élodie Rakoto

Main Article: Élodie Rakoto

Survivor's Info

S24 charSelect portrait.png

Cunning, smart, and defiant Élodie Rakoto was born into a lush Parisian household, miles away from her parents' birthplace, Madagascar. She was only fourteen when she lost her parents during a trip to Dyer island. No rational explanation was found to account for her parents' disappearance. Grief-stricken and guilt-ridden, Élodie descended into depression before she turned to the occult for answers.

Fourteen years later, Élodie was still searching for her missing parents. She’d compiled legends, gathered relics, and examined records from ancient civilizations who had sought the incomprehensible Thing that had taken her parents. She’d discovered various names for it: The Abyss, The Infinite, The Hole.

Élodie was about to recover a crucial relic when she was apprehended by the Black Vale, a ring of occult fanatics rumored to perform human sacrifices. As she attempted to escape, she was hit by a faintly familiar scent of vanilla-spiked fruits and lychee nuts. Then a thin, tropical rain drizzled down her face. She'd stepped into a dreamlike place she'd envisioned so many times as a child.


The soft canopy soil under her feet suddenly turned ashen and collapsed. She sank into something dense and cold that swallowed her like quicksand. She screamed, before being smothered by... the abyss...the infinite... the hole...
