Freddy Riley, or the Lawyer, is one of 33 Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png currently featured in Identity V. The Lawyer is an objectives-oriented Survivor, using his Map to locate Cipher Machines and teammates to boost their efficiency and rush towards the endgame.


Since a botched lawsuit, Freddy has been toiling away at a menial job with a pathetic wage. But he hopes to find a way to escape his past and live the life he has never had: he dreams of receiving a huge bonus, or an opportunity to become a partner in a law firm. Of course, first he needs to find the culprit who ruined his perfect life.


The lawyer and the doctor were participants in the same game. According to his entries, keeping a diary was a rule that all participants had to obey. The lawyer's last entry was a description of the bandaged face figure.

Full Conclusion[]

The Lawyer met the factory owner very early when he was seventeen years old, and later attended the Gardener’s birthday party. He was an economic professional lawyer who provides financial services, but he was not a successful person. His life was devastating, and his income was meager. He was fascinated by his interests, does not let go of any small profits, and does not care about abandoning his feelings for benefit.

He sent a love letter to his friend's wife, Martha Beck, who was already a mother. He showed it unabashedly, indicating that his moral sense was rather low. Persuading the factory owner to buy the Minerva Arms Factory and seducing Martha indicates that he is deep-minded, clever, and deceptive.

Character Story[]

Lawyer's Diaries
Lawyer's Diary 1

Freddy Riley

"I'm going to find that person

the one hidden after the name on the invitation

a woman, a butcher

the one who stole Martha from me."

Lawyer's Diary 2

Freddy Riley

"If there's something I've learned from past experiences

it is to always abide by the rules when being watched."

Lawyer's Diary 3

Freddy Riley

"I developed some blisters on the palm of my left hand three days ago

they burst two days ago

and turned into ulcers yesterday

today, they became 'clues'."

Lawyer's Diary 4

Freddy Riley

"What do people do for love?

Fresh flowers, love letters, vows, marriage

I made fun of it all in the past

until I met you, Martha

After which, all my principles

all my dignity

completely vanished."

Birthday Letter[]

A Break-up Letter

Dear Freddy,

I should have already left by the time you read this letter.

I know you may be confused, but look at the newspaper.

No, actually, you may know all about what happened.

That damned acquisition ruined everything.

Do you remember the night before we left White Sand Street?

I asked you, was Minerva a good investment plan?

That was the only time I asked for your complete honesty.

You said, if the investor had sufficient experience and capital, this would bring him immense wealth.

Look at what the news reported!

"This unfortunate investor acquired a factory with over 4-figure debt."

Yes, Leo wasn't smart. He didn't have any investment experience, not to mention capital.

Yet even the dumbest person knows not to spend money to take on extra debts.

I know how you'd react.

That's why I wouldn't stay and listen to what you have to say.

I wouldn't let Lisa, my daughter, stay in the orphanage alone.

As for the unborn Annecy, I'm going to give her a new name.

Don't worry about our future.

Annecy will grow up with Lisa and become an honest person.

No one can get away completely with their responsibilities, Freddy.

We all have to pay for what we've done.

Martha Remington
