Jose Baden, or the First Officer, is one of 31 Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png currently featured in Identity V.


First Officer is a rescuing character. He has a pocket watch that allows him to hypnotize Hunters, causing them to black out and then see illusionary First Officers, as well as the ability to 'vanish' when a survivor other than himself is placed on a rocket chair.


José Baden once known as the Great/famous Chief Officer who escorted the British Queen's Marine Empire along with his father(who's the Captain of the ship).

They were rich, heroic, powerful and very punctual. No matter it was protecting the British ships or carrying the treasures of the Queen. The Baden family was never late.

Legend said that the punctual secret of the Baden family was related to a pocket watch which blessed by the sea god. The tides and waves will always obey him and never delay his journey. Because of this, the family were highly valued by the British Queen, and as an outsider, they were also awarded by the Queen herself.

Things went gloomy one day. Baden, who has to deal with some emergency in Liverpool and didn't go aboard with his father. At sunset, he decided to wait for his father at the port, but the ship that his father has attended (one of the ships which served for the Queen) didn't arrive on time. In reality, the ship, his father and his crew have vanished mysteriously in the sea after they left.

The Queen was furious and thought that the Baden family had stolen her treasure and ordered to deprive all the wealth and title José Baden owned. Because of this, he became depressed.

Some time later, José received a news about his father's ship. On the missing ship item list, there was an ancient umbrella from China which was about to deliver to a place called the Oletus Manor.

Once a sea knight, he decided to step into this cursed land alone, searching for the whereabouts of his father, or at least... to reclaim what he owns...

Playing as[]

  • When using the watch, there will be a short time that Jose's Illusion will be standing still. Because of that, use watch right next to a pallet to make the hunter thinks that you are pallet camping while you had make a short distance on them.
  • 2 watches make a total of 40s usage. Use it wisely at chases, most of the time when not having any kiting area nearby.
  • Always use Tide Turner as a secondary persona set besides Borrowed Time. If you just play and is a newbie, considered bringing Broken Windows or Knee Jerk Reflex.
  • Don't be predictable. Juke (not so close), U-turn to make the watch helpful.


  • Don't expect to hit illusion. Try to guess which direction he is going to land a successful hit.
  • Take an early hit when camping chair. For the next several seconds after the survivor make a rescue, both of them will be officer. Ensures your early hit then wait for some seconds for the effect to be nullified.


  • His birthday is on the 24th of September.
  • Official personality traits are straightforward, go-getter, quick tempered, loves to tease people with sarcasm, and decisive.
  • He is skilled in gambling and navigation.
  • For some reason, he hates music.
  • He likes tasteful luxurious things/treasure, mechanics, mysticism and sailing.
  • It is likely that he went up against Wu Chang. Who he was teamed up with is yet to be known.
