Dead By Daylight Unveils The Onryo

Dead by Daylight has a new killer to the game, The Onryo. She was introduced as the Killer of the latest Chapter DLC released for gaming PC this month, titled Chapter XXIII: Sadako Rising. And yes, the Onryo is no other than the iconic horror character, Sadako, from The Ring franchise.

In the game, Sadako is an onryo, a vengeful ghost that has the power of Nensha. She can invisibly travel the Realm and manifest when she is about to strike the Survivors with her abilities. To know more about her in-game character, check the details below.

Lore – Killer Story

Sadako Yamamura is a powerful and lethal onryo. She was once the daughter of a famed seer from Izu Oshima, Japan. Even as a child, she has been gifted with immense powers beyond her control. And this power further flared in her anger. She demonstrated this power when a journalist called her mother a fraud. Sadako’s powers surged, and the journalist collapsed on the floor, dead in no time.

When her mother passed, people in her hometown grew in fear of her. They lured her to an old and crumbling well, And as she leaned over its rim, she felt a jolt of pain hit her over the head. She then felt two hands push her over the edge.

Her anger eventually resurrected her into an onryo — a violent and unforgiving spirit.
