* AmbiguousDisorder: His confidential psychiatric report state that he has a history of mental health problems since at least early adolescence, but does not mention what exactly they are, only that he showed strong symptoms of major depressive disorder after Hannah and Beth's disappearances. As all four of the medications he's shown to have been prescribed are antidepressants, it's reasonable to assume that he struggled with it even before they went missing, but it's unclear if the other symptoms he displays (most notably psychosis) are mental issues that weren't being recognized or addressed by his treatment, or withdrawal symptoms resulting from not taking his medication -- the withdrawal symptoms listed in the report seems to suggest the latter, but its note of Josh's delirious state before the drug was even prescribed possibly supports the former, with his symptoms seeming more reminiscent of schizophrenia rather than depression.


* ApologeticAttacker: [[spoiler:If he catches Sam in his Psycho disguise and knocks her out with sleeping gas, he tells her he's "so sorry".]]
* AxCrazy: [[spoiler:Played with. While Josh is out of his mind with rage and grief, he wants to emotionally torment the people he blames for his sisters' deaths, not kill them.]]
* BigBadWannabe: [[spoiler:Is the one who invited his friends to the mountain and is the "psycho" that has been tormenting them in the first half of the game. Then comes the Wendigos...]]



* BlueIsHeroic: Usually wears blue. [[spoiler: Subverted with the revelation he's the Psycho, since he still has blue clothes on whilst pulling a cruel prank on his friends and scaring them out of their minds.]] But he ''can'' have a HeelRealization in his imaginary therapy sessions and [[DoubleSubverted still be in the blue clothes]], and tries to help the others escape in the end.

* DiscOneFinalBoss: [[spoiler:As the Psycho, he goes down with no trouble at all once he comes clean, right in time for the Wendigos to take center stage.]]
* DisproportionateRetribution: [[spoiler: His entire "prank" is basically a night-long TraumaCongaLine as retribution for a harmless but admittedly scathing prank that went wrong, for which his friends have constantly been regretful. In particular, Sam and Chris played little part to no part respectively in what happened to his sisters whatsoever, yet they arguably suffer the brunt of his actions.]]



* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Psych reports found by Sam if she successfully evades capture show that Josh attempted suicide and began overdosing on his medication after Hannah and Beth's disappearance.]]

* HarmlessVillain: [[spoiler:Downplayed. His scheme is little more than a particularly traumatizing prank, and treated with deserved grave seriousness by the cast, but he can never be capable of killing them.]]



* HeelRealization: Can have one in his imaginary therapy sessions, choosing to apologize for his actions after realizing how horrible he was to his friends.
* InsaneEqualsViolent: [[spoiler: [[InvertedTrope Inverted]]; while he never tries to get anyone killed, he's at his most violent when he's relatively lucid and in control of himself. After his "prank" is revealed, he quickly devolves into a babbling loon whom Chris and Mike can only react to with annoyance.]]

* KnightTemplarBigBrother: [[spoiler:Half of what the characters have been through is just one big elaborate prank to get revenge against those he thought were responsible for his sisters' deaths. Everything they witnessed and everything they were forced to do will no doubt traumatize and mentally scar everyone involved. Of course, moments that involved the Wendigo weren't part of the plan.]]
* LargeHam: Generally, he's not especially loud, but has a dramatic way of speaking and a knack for waxing intense. [[spoiler:When he ''does'' let loose, see: once his SanitySlippage becomes obvious, hoo boy.]]

* SanitySlippage: The fact that his sisters have been missing for a year has not been kind to his already fragile sanity, and he only gets worse throughout the story. [[spoiler:When Chris and Mike take him to the barn to keep everyone safe from him, he mumbles incoherently about random things.]]

The Killer / Victor Milgram

A man who lives sadistic madman obsessed with getting revenge on the mountain.Washington family who targets Hannah, Beth, Josh, and their friends for his sick game.



* ActionDuo: [[spoiler:Briefly accompanies Chris in his effort to find Josh, becoming the experienced badass to Chris's ActionSurvivor.]]
* AuthorAvatar: He provides exposition on the current plot, explains what the [[spoiler: Wendigo are, and his book even tells the survivors how to fight them after his death]]. His voice and face model is Larry Fessenden, one of the writers of the game.
* BadassGrandpa: The oldest person in the cast but easily the most formidable one.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: [[spoiler: His tendency to creep around silently and lurk just behind the kids menacingly sets him up as the killer, or a potential threat at least. He's actually spent most of the night fighting off the real threat to the kids, the wendigos.]]
* BigGood: [[spoiler:When we see how much work he's put into keeping the wendigo at bay, the fact that he's been doing this since long before the story began, and that he knows and catalogs every single piece of relevant information on them, he's hard to classify as anything but this. Whole lotta good it does him.]]
* CigarChomper: Though we never see the Stranger smoking, Mike and Matt both find cigar stubs (in a mine area and right outside the lodge respectively), and Mike also finds a cigar box with one cigar remaining in the sanatorium.
* CreepyGood: [[spoiler: He lives in an abandoned sanatorium with a pair of wolves, walks around with a shotgun, machete and a freaking flamethrower, looks all threatening and grizzled, is missing a tooth and has scars over his right eye (out of which he may be blind due to its rather dull and glassy look), and his personality is rather shifty to boot. He's actually a good guy who has spent years fighting the Wendigos and trying to capture them, and he attempts to protect the survivors from the looming threat of them.]]
* EyeScream: His right eye is discoloured, indicating that he is blind in that eye (if this is true, that would make him a HandicappedBadass). [[spoiler:Given that there's a scar running through the eye, it's most likely from a Wendigo attack.]]
* FireBreathingWeapon: Carries a flamethrower that he uses frequently. [[spoiler: Fire is the Wendigos' only weakness; it burns their skin off and makes them vulnerable.]]
* HeroesLoveDogs: [[spoiler: An early clue that he's actually a good guy is when Mike sees him walking into the sanatorium with his two pet wolves, one of which he can later befriend.]]
* HunterOfMonsters: [[spoiler: Has lived in Blackwood Pines for years hunting [[TheJailer and trapping]] Wendigos, since killing them outright releases the evil spirit and allows the curse to spread to someone else.]]
* IconicItem: His flamethrower, to the point where the survivors refer to him as "the flamethrower guy."
* IdiotBall: Upon first meeting the group of friends in the lodge after [[spoiler: the Wendigo starts their attack, he neglects to inform them of the basic fundamentals of surviving against a Wendigo attack, especially with how a bite from a Wendigo will not turn you into one of them, and instead orders them to hide in the basement while he goes outside with Chris to go rescue Josh. He is quickly killed by a Wendigo, and if it weren't for the journal the group has found in the basement, they would have had no idea on how to survive an encounter with a Wendigo, and assume that a bite from them is infectious, which leads to Emily potentially being killed out of paranoia. To be fair, he likely had no way of knowing that he was going to die during a rescue mission, but nevertheless, his lack of communication to the survivors could have gotten people needlessly killed.]]
* IgnoredExpert: As the newsreel at the beginning of the game explains, he told the Washington family not to build on the mountain due to a connection with his ancestors. [[spoiler:He's talking about the {{wendigo}} problem, but nobody will listen to him.]]
* InSeriesNickname: "Flamethrower Guy".
* ItsPersonal: If you [[spoiler: flip back to the first page in his journal]] as Ashley, you find an old newspaper clipping that mentions the mysterious death of a man who looks a lot like the Stranger, which suggests his [[spoiler: Wendigo-hunting career]] is based around revenge, supported by the fact that the Events of the Past video specifically mentions his grandfather having done the same thing he once did. [[spoiler:He also finally killed the Makkapitew after deciding he was avenging Beth and Hannah.]]
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:He is one of only three deaths you cannot prevent in some way.]]
* MrExposition: He explains all about [[spoiler:the Wendigos]] to the survivors. What he doesn't find immediately pertinent enough to tell them in person, [[spoiler: they find in his notebook after his death.]]
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Even if he initially assumed that rescuing [[spoiler: Josh]] is a lost cause due to [[spoiler: the Wendigo having begun their attack on the mountain]], he does go back outside and attempt to rescue [[spoiler: Josh]] anyways. [[spoiler: He ends up being killed by a Wendigo minutes after leaving the lodge.]]
* NoNameGiven: He never gives the survivors his name, and in the credits he's simply listed as Flamethrower Guy. A local man and escaped convict with a grudge against the Washington family named Victor Milgram is mentioned early in the game as the prime suspect for being the Psycho, but there's no real indication Flamethrower Guy is him, and by checking the clues found in the collectibles menu, it states that Victor Milgram and anything related to him was [[spoiler: made up by Josh as part of his prank]], thus the Stranger's name is never revealed in-game. But [[WordOfGod developers confirmed in a livestream on Twitch]] that his name is Jack.
* OffWithHisHead: [[spoiler: A Wendigo cuts off his head with a single swipe during a sneak attack, as he's the largest threat to their existence. He, like Beth, dies regardless of the player's choices.]]
* RedHerring: A good portion of the earlier items pertaining to one of the game's core mysteries detail an arsonist with a vendetta against the Washingtons who has recently been released around the time of the game. Based on the Stranger's [[spoiler:use of a flamethrower and the radio broadcast detailing the Sheriff's desire to interview a mysterious figure seen lurking in the mountain area, the player can initially be led to believe the Stranger ''is'' the arsonist; it's later revealed, however, that the 'arsonist' is another part of Josh's creepy fabrications intended for his friends; it's likely he was as unaware of the Stranger as he was the Wendigo]].
* RoomFullOfCrazy: Has a billboard full of crazy in his base of operation.
* ScareEmStraight: His response to Chris insisting on searching for Josh in [[spoiler: the wendingo-infested woods]] is to [[ToThePain grimly describe in excruciating detail]] the slow, painful death [[spoiler: the wendigos]] will subject him to if they catch him. [[KnowWhenToFoldEm Chris promptly changes his mind.]]
* TakeMyHand: [[spoiler: Tries to save Beth and Hannah at the beginning of the game when the two are dangling from a cliff. Unfortunately, his effort is in vain.]]
* WalkingSpoiler: Just look at all that white!
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:Right after he actually takes presence in the story and joins the cast, he and Chris go on their fateful failed rescue mission.]]
* TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled: [[spoiler: Despite having hunted the Wendigos for decades and actually having managed to largely defeat them (at least until Hannah turned and freed the rest of them), after one cutscene explaining Wendigos to most of the cast and a conversation with Chris explaining a bit more about them, he gets killed in his very next battle with them (likely due to keeping his eye more on keeping Chris safe than on his immediate surroundings, as he has always hunted the wendigo all by himself). The cast finds out anything else they need to know from a book that they find on the belongings he left behind at the lodge.]]

* ActionDuo: [[spoiler:Briefly accompanies Chris AndYourLittleDogToo: Vows revenge on the entire Washington family, including the [[SinsOfOurFathers then-unborn children of Bob and Melinda who had nothing to do with him losing his job]], and even goes after the friends of those children, either ForTheEvulz or [[EvilIsPetty out of sheer spite]].
* ApologeticAttacker: Only briefly, but if he catches Sam and knocks her out with sleeping gas, he tells her he's "so sorry". That doesn't stop him from dragging her into his games, and he is otherwise remorseless

* EyeScream: His right eye DisproportionateRetribution: Gets revenge for losing to job by stalking, torturing, and murdering a group of innocent teens. [[spoiler: The truth of Josh's "prank" is discoloured, indicating also this, basically being a night-long TraumaCongaLine as retribution for a harmless but admittedly scathing prank that he is blind went wrong, for which his friends have constantly been regretful. In particular, Sam and Chris played little part to no part respectively in that eye (if this is true, that would make him a HandicappedBadass).

* HeroesLoveDogs: [[spoiler: An early clue that he's actually a good guy is when Mike sees him walking into EvilIsPetty: His motive reeks of this. Yeah, losing your job sucks, but certainly not enough to justify reacting out the sanatorium way the Psycho did or any of the crap he inflicts on kids who weren't even responsible for it in the first place.
* {{Expy}}: He is clearly modeled after [[Franchise/{{Saw}} Jigsaw]] in the type of {{Death Trap}}s he places the main characters in.
* FauxAffablyEvil: He thinks of his terrorizing and torturous killing of the teenagers as a game, speaks in a calm and courteous manner, and can get very playful in his stalking of victims. He almost treats them like friends.
* FromNobodyToNightmare: According to the newspaper clue, he was just a janitor at the Blackwood Mountain hotel. 16 years later, he has become a full-fledged SerialKiller.

* IdiotBall: Upon first meeting
mountain and closed the group hotel he worked at, he went berserk and swore revenge on the whole family when Josh's mother was pregnant with him.

->'''Performed by:''' Larry Fessenden

->''"You hold onto your horses. I don't take kindly to you kids coming up here to my mountain."''

A man who lives
on the mountain.


Added DiffLines:

* ActionDuo: Briefly accompanies Chris in his effort to find Josh, becoming the experienced badass to Chris's ActionSurvivor.
* AuthorAvatar: He provides exposition on the current plot, explains what the Wendigo are, and his book even tells the survivors how to fight them. His voice and face model is Larry Fessenden, one of the writers of the game.
* BadassGrandpa: The oldest person in the cast but easily the most formidable one.
* BaitAndSwitchBoss: His tendency to creep around silently and lurk just behind the kids menacingly sets him up as the killer, or a potential threat at least. He's actually spent most of the night fighting off the real threat to the kids, the wendigos.
* BigGood: When we see how much work he's put into keeping the wendigo at bay, the fact that he's been doing this since long before the story began, and that he knows and catalogs every single piece of relevant information on them, he's hard to classify as anything but this. [[spoiler:Whole lotta good it does him.]]
* CigarChomper: Though we never see the Stranger smoking, Mike and Matt both find cigar stubs (in a mine area and right outside the lodge respectively), and Mike also finds a cigar box with one cigar remaining in the sanatorium.
* CreepyGood: He lives in an abandoned sanatorium with a pair of wolves, walks around with a shotgun, machete and a freaking flamethrower, looks all threatening and grizzled, is missing a tooth and has scars over his right eye (out of which he may be blind due to its rather dull and glassy look), and his personality is rather shifty to boot. He's actually a good guy who has spent years fighting the Wendigos and trying to capture them, and he attempts to protect the survivors from the looming threat of them.
* EyeScream: His right eye is discoloured, indicating that he is blind in that eye (if this is true, that would make him a HandicappedBadass). Given that there's a scar running through the eye, it's most likely from a Wendigo attack.
* FireBreathingWeapon: Carries a flamethrower that he uses frequently. Fire is the Wendigos' only weakness; it burns their skin off and makes them vulnerable.
* HeroesLoveDogs: An early clue that he's actually a good guy is when Mike sees him walking into the sanatorium with his two pet wolves, one of which he can later befriend.
* HunterOfMonsters: Has lived in Blackwood Pines for years hunting [[TheJailer and trapping]] Wendigos, since killing them outright releases the evil spirit and allows the curse to spread to someone else.
* IconicItem: His flamethrower, to the point where the survivors refer to him as "the flamethrower guy."
* IdiotBall: Upon first meeting the group of friends in the lodge after the Wendigo starts their attack, he neglects to inform them of the basic fundamentals of surviving against a Wendigo attack, especially with how a bite from a Wendigo will not turn you into one of them, and instead orders them to hide in the basement while he goes outside with Chris to go rescue Josh. [[spoiler: He is quickly killed by a Wendigo, and if it weren't for the journal the group has found in the basement, they would have had no idea on how to survive an encounter with a Wendigo, and assume that a bite from them is infectious, which leads to Emily potentially being killed out of paranoia. To be fair, he likely had no way of knowing that he was going to die during a rescue mission, but nevertheless, his lack of communication to the survivors could have gotten people needlessly killed.]]
* IgnoredExpert: As the newsreel at the beginning of the game explains, he told the Washington family not to build on the mountain due to a connection with his ancestors. He's talking about the {{wendigo}} problem, but nobody will listen to him.
* InSeriesNickname: "Flamethrower Guy".
* ItsPersonal: If you flip back to the first page in his journal as Ashley, you find an old newspaper clipping that mentions the mysterious death of a man who looks a lot like the Stranger, which suggests his Wendigo-hunting career is based around revenge, supported by the fact that the Events of the Past video specifically mentions his grandfather having done the same thing he once did. He also finally killed the Makkapitew after deciding he was avenging Beth and Hannah.
* KilledOffForReal: [[spoiler:He is one of only three deaths you cannot prevent in some way.]]
* MrExposition: He explains all about the Wendigos to the survivors. What he doesn't find immediately pertinent enough to tell them in person, they find in his notebook.
* NoGoodDeedGoesUnpunished: Even if he initially assumed that rescuing Josh is a lost cause due to the Wendigo having begun their attack on the mountain, he does go back outside and attempt to rescue Josh anyways. [[spoiler: He ends up being killed by a Wendigo minutes after leaving the lodge.]]
* NoNameGiven: He never gives the survivors his name, and in the credits he's simply listed as Flamethrower Guy. [[WordOfGod Developers confirmed in a livestream on Twitch]] that his name is Jack.
* OffWithHisHead: [[spoiler: A Wendigo cuts off his head with a single swipe during a sneak attack, as he's the largest threat to their existence. He, like Beth, dies regardless of the player's choices.]]

* TakeMyHand: Tries to save Beth and Hannah at the beginning of the game when the two are dangling from a cliff. Unfortunately, his effort is in vain.
* WalkingSpoiler: The twist that he's a good guy hunting the real threat, wendigoes, makes him this.
* WeHardlyKnewYe: [[spoiler:Right after he actually takes presence in the story and joins the cast, he and Chris go on their fateful failed rescue mission.]]
* TheWorldsExpertOnGettingKilled: [[spoiler: Despite having hunted the Wendigos for decades and actually having managed to largely defeat them (at least until Hannah turned and freed the rest of them), after one cutscene explaining Wendigos to most of the cast and a conversation with Chris explaining a bit more about them, he gets killed in his very next battle with them (likely due to keeping his eye more on keeping Chris safe than on his immediate surroundings, as he has always hunted the wendigo all by himself).

* HiddenDepths: While the Prologue makes her come off as something of a gullible and naive FragileFlower, a picture reveals that Hannah is also a talented tennis player who places high in tournaments. Being an athlete herself might explain her friendship with [[PassionateSportsGirl Sam]]. She also had a tattoo -- albeit it's implied it was to impress Mike, but it's still not something your typical ShrinkingViolet would have.

Even before that, if Matt attacked the deer and is trying to climb back up the cliff side, Emily does not hesitate to reach down to help pull him up. She also gets sad and distressed as she finds clues regarding Beth and Hannah in the mines, and expresses concern for Sam when they have to get separated later on as Sam searches for Mike [[spoiler: though one can only see this last one if Ashley has died by this time and only Sam, Emily and maybe Chris are alone at that moment]]. She also expresses concern and shock upon hearing about Joshs apparent death.
