The Hooks Killer
The Adrian Tamil incarnation of The Hooks Killer.
Played By: DeathlyLogic
Appears In: handprintsofthedead

A powerful and mysterious Serial Killer, with a very strange past.

  • Deal with the Devil: He's implied to have made a deal with The Carver, likely on the say
  • Demonic Possession: Surprisingly subverted: while Hooks appears to be a possessing entity, he's actually a glitched human "program" who's able to move between the different timelines (and versions of himself) at will.
  • Dimensional Traveller: He's the original Barnabelt Kinnard of the Fearful Four, moving between the various timelines of .Reality at will (by exploiting the Debigrath Effect).
  • Eats Babies: He has eaten at least one infant victim (which may or may not have been his own child).
  • Evil Sounds Raspy: His voice is consistently rough and gravelly. (However, the reason behind it varies from timeline to timeline; in one version, he allegedly acquired both his nickname and his gravelly voice after consuming human flesh laced with fishhooks.)
  • I Have Many Names: He's lived under many names in many different timelines. His known identities include Barnabelt Kinnard, King Comshine Orok, Adam Spirit (multiple versions), and Adrian Tamil.
  • I'm a Humanitarian: He has consumed the flesh of his victims on multiple occasions.
  • In-Series Nickname: Quite a few. He's primarily referred to as "Hooks", but he's also been known as The Hook, War, The Killer, the New Comshine Killer, and Copycat King Orok.
  • Legacy Character: To King Comshine Orok (though Barnabelt Kinnard was his first incarnation).
  • Nice Hat: He occasionally sports a rather nice top hat. It's another hint about his ties to the Carver (and De’ebo, by extension).
  • Occult Blue Eyes: He sports them during his livestream finale videos.
  • Rape Is a Special Kind of Evil: Allegedly, he sexually assaulted several infants.
  • Serial Killer: In 2015, he admits to having murdered over 300 people in the New Comshine area alone. And this is just one of his incarnations...
  • Soul Fragment: He possesses a shard of The Carver's soul (which, according to Word of God, instilled in him his murderous skills and abilities and essentially helped him become "a perfect killer"). Said shard is transferred into the vessel of Luke Anton on May 15th, allowing Carver to enter .Reality.
  • Would Hurt a Child: He has canonically raped, killed, and eaten at least one infant.

    Jane Doe 

Jane Doe

Appears In: FromTheRuins
Played By: Kim M.

The protagonist of the vlog series FromTheRuins.

    Luke Anton 

Lucifer Anton

Appears In: Handprints of the Dead.
Played By: Zayne V.

A college kid who is working on a documentary about The Hooks Killer.

  • Asshole Victim: Luke’s a rude, lazy, obnoxious, self-centered kid who has zero regard for the feelings of others. The video opens with him bragging about sexually humiliating a female acquaintance (“a bitch”) during a drug and booze-fueled retreat, and he repeatedly insults his filming partner (who happens to be The Hooks Killer himself) to his face. He's so unlikable that it's hard to feel bad for him when Hooks cuts him open.
  • Color-Coded for Your Convenience: Every time he appears on camera, he's wearing something with red in it — Foreshadowing his future connection to The Carver.
  • Demonic Possession: He ends up becoming a (temporary) meat suit for The Carver. Would count as a Living Body Suit...if Hooks hadn’t cut open his chest and played with his internal organs before he channeled The Carver into his body. (Of course, it’s possible he was still alive after that...)
  • Fusion Dance: While it isn't stated, it's heavily implied that The Carver became bound to Luke's body, Arknza-style, after he was summoned into it.
  • Idiot Ball: He agrees to work with a strange man who looks like, calls himself, and knows a disturbing amount of information about The Hooks Killer — and then goes with him alone to a pseudo-isolated location where multiple notorious murders took place. All for the possibility of getting a good grade on a school project. Even if Luke doesn't believe the man with him to be the real Hooks Killer, it's still not a very bright idea to hang around a weird loner who names himself after a serial killer and wears a mask that looks like human skin!
  • Killed Off for Real: If Hooks cutting open his chest and playing with his innards didn't do the trick, he's later shot in the head by Azrael's revolver, killing his vessel and sending The Carver (who is bound to it) to the Infernous. There, The Carver remains bound to Luke's (still mortal) form, which becomes wounded in a fight with Ellpagg and dies in the Infernous — effectively destroying anything that still remains of Luke Anton.
  • Meaningful Name: His first name, Luke, is short for Lucifer — a reference to the fact that he's destined to become the vessel for The Carver, one of the beings hinted to be the inspiration for the Devil. His surname, similarly, is a reference to Anton Lavey
  • The Slacker: He constantly goofs off and is perpetually lazy, putting little effort into anything he does. He only agrees to work with "Hooks" because he thinks it will land him an easy A on his psychology project (and a ride to the medical school his father wants him to attend) — and he doesn’t even put any work into that. Lampshaded by Hooks, who points out that he doesn’t even make the effort to wear the same shirt between videos.
  • What an Idiot!: Go to the location of multiple murders with a guy who knows an absurd amount of detail about the serial killer responsible for said murders, and looks and sounds just like him? Sounds like a great idea! Hey, just for good measure, why don't you insult the creepy guy to his face? Repeatedly?

How well does it match the trope?
