Overview

New Store Trickster
Quotes left Armed with an arsenal of throwing knives, The Trickster overwhelms fleeing Survivors with a relentless barrage of blades.

Lore

Trickster Lore1
Additional Lore can be found in Tome 9 - Crescendo: Dissonance for the Dead.

Ji-Woon Hak thrived under the attention of others, energized by every eye that watched him and every tongue that spoke his name. Amidst the prestige, he had only one desire: more. Even as a child he found ways to draw crowds. Working at his family's restaurant, he attracted business with spectacles he performed using throwing knives. Gullible tourists believed this was a traditional South Korean experience, gladly parting with their money to witness it. Ji-Woon's father spent the restaurant's earnings on dancing and vocal lessons for his son, pushing him to attain the fame he never could.

Ji-Woon did not disappoint. After years showcasing his abilities to nobodies at talent shows, he hit the track to stardom. Yun-Jin Lee, a producer at Mightee One Entertainment, recruited Ji-Woon into her training program. He transferred to a dormitory in Seoul where, for fourteen hours a day, he was crafted into a star, taught how to move and sing, how to carry himself with the right balance of confidence and modesty.

Draining as the process was, it worked. Yun-Jin selected Ji-Woon to join the band NO SPIN, bringing a raw energy to their tracks. Fame was almost immediate. Ji-Woon lived in a daze of interviews and adoration, and though the frenzied schedule exhausted his bandmates, he was invigorated. Each day was an affirmation that he was greater than the mediocrity society spewed out.

But over time, the champagne grew stale. When he looked at his fans, he saw their joy and envy split five ways, thinned out between each band member. The validation that had surged through him left a desperate yearning for more.

Ji-Woon kept up impressions, mimicking a charm long buried under loathing. He recorded the latest NO SPIN album with his bandmates, never missing a beat. After a lengthy lunch break, he returned to the studio to discover fate had granted him a gift. The scent of burning wires was unmistakable. He rushed to the control room, finding the door blocked by fallen speakers. On the other side, his bandmates pounded on the door, their cries accompanied by the crackling of flames.

Ji-Woon called to them, dashing to the speakers, grabbing one and—stopping. He froze. Each breath was a conscious, deliberate process requiring all his attention, the nearby cries hardly audible until, slowly, he backed away. And then he heard it. They were screaming his name as they burnt. Screaming for him to save them. Ji-Woon! Ji-Woon! Ji-Woon Hak! It was the most beautiful thing he'd ever heard. When the fire crew arrived, his tears were genuine.

Ji-Woon was celebrated as a tragic figure, a hero who did all he could in a futile attempt to save his friends. Yun-Jin paraded him through interviews until it was time to rebrand. He was reborn as The Trickster, a solo artist who produced his own songs, sporting a soft heart beneath a wild exterior. But, away from concert set-ups and television stages, something darker grew.

He targeted those who lived alone, coming to them in the night. The first was a college music student with a captivating voice. Ji-Woon woke him with a baseball bat to the skull, binding his arms and legs, gagging him with a rag duct taped into his mouth. He tortured him for hours, dissecting him alive. Yet there was something missing—a sound, a connection. He wanted to hear the victim's wonderous voice pleading as he cut his belly open, but all he received was muffled cries through a rag.

He learnt and adjusted.

Victims had to be abducted, driven to an abandoned building where he could let their voices carry unrestrained emotion. He made music from them, prodding in the right places to evoke different types of shrieks and howls. Stabbing the quadratus lumborum elicited a long, guttural wail, while slashing the carotid artery created a sound like a cat being strangled. There was honesty in their suffering. Ji-Woon recorded each session, synthesizing and working them into his songs, hiding them behind layers of melodies.

He was elated with his work. He left hints for police, arranging a mink boa from a recent photoshoot around a victim's slashed throat. For his next killing, he removed the teeth from a man that a boxer in one of his music videos was without. During a particularly audacious plea for attention, he killed a fan he had met during a VIP meet-up, replacing her eyes with his diamond cufflinks and writing I HAVE SEEN GOD in blood across her chest. Each scene was a dazzling spectacle.

Between music and murder, Ji-Woon's work was discussed globally. However, as violence became his preferred art style, his music career took a hit. Revenue was down and Mightee One executives pointed their fingers at him. Yun-Jin, with professional fury, came to his defence, but she was outnumbered. It was decided that Ji-Woon could no longer self-produce his songs.

The decision was devastating. His tracks fused genuine humanity into music, yet executives rejected anything that wasn't generic and expected. And so be it. If they couldn't understand his art, he would incorporate them into it until they did.

He had three months until he was to perform a private show for Mightee One's board members; three months to plan his magnum opus. He transferred obscene amounts of money to a veterinarian in exchange for cannisters of nitrous oxide, then bribed the stage technician of Mightee One's private theatre for access to the room. His celebrity granted him a benefit of the doubt no regular person could conceive. When the show was ready, gas seeped into the room as executives and stagehands awaited Ji-Woon, conveniently running behind schedule.

When he arrived, half-conscious bodies were splayed in their seats and crawling across the floor. He worked quickly, binding everyone, pausing only when he came to Yun-Jin — the woman who had plucked him from a mudhole and set him on the path he deserved. She would be rewarded, granted special access to the coming display of wonder. Even under sedation, she fought, a raging storm within her, far stronger than the others. He propped her up as the lone audience member, prying her eyes open. The others, snivelling and sobbing, were brought on stage to perform their final act. With a contemptable sneer, he slapped makeup onto their faces and shone stage lights upon them. They became his instruments.

To the sound of self-produced melodies, he tortured them, gracefully dashing from one body to another, conducting an operatic crescendo from their wailings. They shouted, whimpered, screamed, cried for their loved ones, cried for their mothers. It was a magnificent outpouring of emotion, of what it meant to be human, and they did it with eyes fixed on Ji-Woon.

Viscera drained from the stage until, with the toss of his throwing knife, the final human instrument fell silent and the music stopped. Covered in sweat and blood, an exhausted Ji-Woon looked to Yun-Jin and bowed. Curtain call. He had attained perfection. With blade in hand, he made his way to Yun-Jin, prepared to tie up loose ends before the credits rolled. But as he reached her —

The Fog.

From where, he didn’t know, but it billowed around them, damp, cool... comfortable. He saw the grand stage: hospitals and temples, forests and slaughterhouses — an eternal plane adorned with rusted hooks, sustained by the million eyes that would watch him, run from him, experience him. All he had to do was accept, become an implement of The Fog and, most importantly, make them scream.

Encore!

Lullaby Trivia

  • The Trickster has a unique Lullaby amongst all Killers featuring one.
  • While the Lullaby can be heard from as far as 44 metres away, its volume changes throughout, depending on how far the Survivor hearing it is from The Trickster, unlike with other Killers where the Lullaby has a fixed volume, even going as far as being silent when close to The Trickster:
    • His Lullaby is inaudible within 8 metres of him, but is still present.
      • The visual Lullaby-indicator does not disappear in this range.
    • His Lullaby starts to fade in at around 8 metres and begins to fade out at around 40 metres from him.
      • The visual Lullaby-indicator disappears at around 36 metres
    • His Lullaby is loudest within 20 to 30 metres of him.
    • This ultimately creates an offset bell curve for his Lullaby's volume.

Trivia

  • The Trickster is one of the most human-looking Killers in the game, as he has no unnatural alterations from The Entity.
    • His various eye colours, depending on the chosen Cosmetic piece, come from him using contact lenses, as confirmed in the video “Consultation with Kevin Woo” [1].
    • In general, natural eye colours (and hair colours) of Koreans vary from dark brown to black.
  • In the Game's code, Showstopper and Main Event are respectively referred to as "Flurry of Knives" and "Super Mode".
  • The Trickster is the first Killer who has been in a prolonged professional relationship with his Survivor counterpart prior to them both entering The Entity's Realm.
  • The melody The Trickster hums after hooking a survivor is "Ring a Ring o' Roses", an old English nursery rhyme. It is typically used by children in a mocking fashion, as Trickster uses it to mock the survivors.
  • The Trickster was the second male Killer to move at 4.4 m/s.
  • The Trickster is the third Killer to feature a Memento Mori where a survivor is shown standing.
  • The Trickster is the third Killer with a Lullaby Radius.
  • The Trickster being able to carry 44 Blades in his base form is probably a reference to Tetraphobia (Fear of the Number 4), a superstition most common in East Asia due to the word for "four (四)" sounding similar if not the same as the word "death (死)" in some languages like for example Korean (Sa/사) and Japanese (Shi/し). That way his blade count is technically spoken "death death" in Korean.
  • The Trickster's Fire Moon Performer Outfit (a Hanbok) is based on his Korean heritage, a theme which is also shared by Jake's Lunar Fusion Outfit and Yun-Jin’s Fire Moon Mourner Outfit.
  • It is implied that The Trickster composed his own chase music as the chase layer contains what appears to be a collection of heavily edited wailings and screams, coinciding with his lore.

Language Trivia

  • The Trickster is the first Killer to speak a contemporary language (Korean) and the second one to speak during his Memento Mori.
    • Before killing a Survivor, The Trickster says "간다!" (Ganda), which roughly translates to "[Are you] going?". This is in reference to the survivor's animation, where they get up and attempt to move away from The Trickster.
    • After killing a Survivor, The Trickster says "감사합니다!" (Gamsahabnida), which translates to "Thank you!".
    • Upon getting stunned, The Trickster says "제기랄!" (Jegiral), which translates to "Shit!".
    • Upon getting stunned, The Trickster says "젠장!" (Jenjang), which translates to "Damn it!".
    • Upon getting stunned, The Trickster says "빌어먹을!" (Bileomeogeul), which translates to "Goddamn it!"
    • Upon getting stunned, The Trickster says "짜증나..." (Jjajeungna), which translates to "How annoying..."
    • Upon getting stunned, The Trickster partially says "아 씨발." (A ssibal), which translates to "Oh fuck."
    • While reloading his Blades at a Locker, The Trickster says "이거야!" (Igeoya), which translates to "This is it!".
    • Upon finding a Survivor inside a Locker, The Trickster says "찾았다!" (Chajatda), which translates to "Found you!".
    • Upon finding a Survivor inside a Locker, The Trickster says "여기 있네!" (Yeogi itne), which translates to "There you are!".
    • Upon hooking a Survivor, The Trickster says "좋았어!" (Johatseo), which translates to "Nice!".

Voice-Lines

  • The Trickster was the first Killer to feature voice-lines and actively speak during the Trials, in this case in his native language South Korean.
    • This also premiered the use of in-game subtitles.
