Weibo Release Post[]

Some people have been given a certain mission from birth, and they bear the evil that she should not bear. If her mother had not left her, she should have grown up happily in a wealthy merchant family in the Czech Republic and had the happiest childhood, rather than being someone's substitute. Anne's only salvation was the room filled with all kinds of wooden toys, the utopia that seemed to take her away from everything.

Those high walls tied up, lies and betrayal, almost crushed her world. Fortunately, the hope of life is always born of hope itself. Anne founded a toy store, and these toys brought her salvation far more than money.

The most important thing is that the toy shop has gradually improved in her hands, and Anne has regained her confidence and vowed to get back what she deserves and her dignity.”

Until, the mailbox received an anonymous invitation letter, which said that she knew the news of the two scammers, and she decided to check it out.

Animated Backstory[]

It is here, and here alone can I be free and happy.




I am nothing but an inferior impersonation of my mother.

The beautiful flowers, the adoration of the crowd, a gorgeous dress

And a seemingly perfect fiancé

All that grandeur

Is it fulfillment or is it imprisonment?


Manipulated and discarded

Just like a toy

Who knew this picturesque castle, impregnable on the surface

would be so vulnerable

But I believe

And I still believe

The children's smiles

A simple toy shop

Graced with feather-light wings,

I could see the break of dawn on the horizon.

External Traits[]

External Traits
Icon Name Description
Delicate Toy The Toy Merchant carries a Toy Box containing 2 Catapults and a pair of Wooden Wings.

Catapult - The Toy Merchant can place a Catapult in the scene to launch Survivors forward for a certain distance. As only the Toy Merchant is familiar with the mechanics of the Catapult, only the Toy Merchant can retrieve a Catapult from the scene. The Catapult has a delicate structure that can be easily destroyed by Hunters.

Wooden Wings - The Toy Merchant can spread her Wings when she's in mid-air. She moves faster than usual while gliding. Tap the ability button again to retract her Wings and stop gliding.

Soothing Toy Given what she's been through, the Toy Merchant is insecure. The heavy Toy Box is the only thing that puts her at ease. The Toy Merchant can pick up dropped items and store them in the Toy Box. On top of the Catapults and the Wooden Wings, the Toy Box can store up to 3 items. The Toy Merchant treasures her toys and can't use the items in the Toy Box. However, she's happy to share the toys with her teammates by placing them by her side or throwing them to other Survivors.
Gaze Afar The Toy Merchant can ascertain Survivors' location within a certain range. When using her Wooden Wings to glide through the air, the high altitude allows her to determine the location of all Survivors on the map.
Mad Collector The Toy Merchant has an extraordinary passion for collecting toys, increasing the speed at which she opens Chests by 100%.
