ok so here's the drill, i had a great idea for the dead by daylight characters and i'd love to have them all here! obviously i'm only counting the ones that are 'original' game characters, not including laurie or quentin, since they're from real life media. first and foremost, watch some playthroughs of dbd cause its very simple to get into and the characters have pretty detailed backstories. their perks will tell you kind of what the character is like as well. you may want to read up on all the killers as well, to get a feel for them. if anyone wants to play a killer, hmu!
they also have detailed backstories, and while they may not be 'pretty' to look at, they're cool, and will likely be more like...human once they also get out of the void and out of the entity's clutches. i think the trapper, wraith, nurse, and huntress may be most fun to play escaping the entity and gaining their faculties again and becoming more human.
now, the story for these guys goes that 'the entity' (the big bad spider demon thing) brought all these killers and survivors to play in a 'most dangerous game' type constant die and respawn type thing for its amusement (aka yes, we can kill the survivors constantly and they'll come back, this is the only exception to the rule on death i'm making). i figure, what if the void could serve as that arena? so, after being brought from their home worlds into elysion, this is where the entity kept them, in some constantly shifting arena in the void. so the void has multiple levels, and i figure the dead by daylight crew are in a lower level that the entity is constantly changing to suit its needs, throwing the dbd killers into it--we'll NPC them, of course--and not letting the survivors escape. eventually i DO want them to escape and find their way out into the new world they're in, but for now, i want some carnage :3c
dwight was the first to be brought here, followed by jake, claudette, and meg, and then the others followed after. he's the leader of the group, so please read his application to kind of figure out what he's like. basically he's the 'nervous leader' and he's a mess, but he tries his best! i'd like for them all to have accepted him as their leader, and i'd rather not anyone hate him. he's really very fond of all of them and mourns every time they die; he's a gentle soul and he just really wants to get everyone out of a trial safely every time, so he winds up putting himself on the line a lot--even though he claims he's not brave. he's a good boy ok, look how cute he is =/ their ages aren't stated anywhere, but i can help you figure it out!
this shitlord is taken by bre
i hardcore ship dwight and david so i'd love for whoever takes david to ship with me! i won't stop you if you don't want to, but i'd really rather prefer to ship these two! there's some personal history i put into dwight's app that i'll go over after the initial summary. and i have a bunch of art and david is just so good, ok? now, moving on. from manchester england, david has pretty much been a bare-knuckles type of guy from the get-go. what you'd generally expect from a kid that used to be a bully, he's all about combat. from a wealthy family, he literally could have had anything at his disposal; he was offered the world. great with sports and school, he really just lived for the rush of adrenaline that picking a fight could give him. that being said, he is absolutely the bold 'run in and get it done' type of guy and doesn't really have the patience for much. he joined a rugby team eventually but he assaulted a referee during a game and was immediately banned for life. eventually, david spent most of his time at the local pubs, drinking beer and getting into bar fights and was 0% concerned for his reputation at all. he worked as a 'debt collector' and in fight clubs when he wanted to.
now, personally speaking, david and dwight did not hit it off. they're complete opposites in everything they do--david is rough and tumble, a guy that just wants to get shit done, and dwight is timid and nervous and plans things out. so one day dwight handed over the leadership role to david and david did just about as well as expected; he let almost everyone get killed. after being saved and healed up by dwight during a trial with the doctor, he started to reevaluate just what kind of team player he wanted to be. so while david is overall rugged and harsh with his words, he's turned into that 'asshole with a heart of gold' and he usually sticks to dwight's side during trials, and every other time for that matter, because he sees he's a good leader but that he needs a lot of protection. remember he is from manchester, so do some research on the accent and slang.
david's perks are we're gonna live forever which essentially gives him a boost every time he protects an ally from being hit or saves them from a hook. dead hard allows him to move faster after he's been hit. and no mither (lol mither means 'trouble') allows him to start the trial injured and unable to be healed but he doesn't leave signs of being injured and can recover from the 'dying' state (on the ground crawling) completely on his own. read more about david and his perks HERE.
