Leo Beck, or Hell Ember, is one of 22 Hunters IconHelpLoading hunter.png currently featured in Identity V Identity v.png.


Hell Ember is an area-control Hunter, able to apply pressure across the Map by placing deadly Puppets for Survivors to walk near.

His personal Abilities, Puppet Control Ability Puppet Control.png & Multiple Puppet Control Ability Multiple Puppet Control.png, allow him to chase Survivors more effectively.

His focus is on teleporting to his puppets to have map control. Effective ways of using the puppets are to place them near Cipher Machines, in front of a Rocket Chair with a survivor on it, and by the exit gates when they are open. By pressing and holding the puppet icon, Hell Ember can aim and throw his puppets to teleport a greater distance.

Hell Ember can also summon many temporary clones that can pursue nearby survivors. Only one clone can be active at a time. However, if a puppet is infused with a flame, the puppet will walk and search the area for nearby survivors.


The factory manager was married in 1874. Three years later, his daughter was born. He operated a small textile factory and was flexible in handiwork. He also made small toys for his daughter. Though he didn't have a big career, he loved his family.

The factory owner suffered a career issue, and many years of friends and lawyers helped him. After taking the advice of his friend Freddy Riley, he bought a small gun factory that was severely in debt. Before Leo realized the poor conditions of the factory, his wife and Freddy Riley made off with all his possessions and disappeared. Drowning in debt, Leo Beck began to drink alcohol for a while, giving up his daughter to an orphanage to prepare himself for self-immolation in the factory.

Though he took his life in a fire, it did not remove him from the world. He was reborn with resentment and wrote, "I will find you" in the factory.

He had been a survivor, but because he refused to write in his diary, he was "punished" and reappeared as a hunter.


In a certain diary's description, he broke the manor owner's rules by no longer writing his diary, and was punished. But in another diary, the bandaged face assumed the role of a regulator to "return to the game"?

Many diaries described the same game with clearly mismatched details - the credibility of all records regarding regulators are open to doubt.

Deduction Target[]

All completed Objectives reward the player with +335 Logic Points Logic Points.png for the Logic Path Logic path.png

  1. Fury
    Warp self-righteousness into revenge and hatred-- that is the original sin of anger
    • Basic Objective: Eliminate 1 survivor with a rocket chair
    • Advanced Objective 1: Eliminate 2 survivors with a rocket chair
    • Advanced Objective 2: Eliminate 3 survivors with a rocket chair
    Secret 1: An old prescription pad with rudimentary burn treatments. "The burn surface must be isolated from the air. Apply oil (lamp oil, salad oil, or butter) to the wound surface, then apply flour, gypsum, or ground charcoal evenly by sprinkling. Apply daily, and do not bathe or wipe the wound for two weeks."
  2. Persistence
    The hunters' duty is to send these people to where they should go.
    • Basic Objective: Pursue survivors 3 times
    • Advanced Objective 1: Pursue survivors 4 times
    • Advanced Objective 2: Pursue survivors 6 times
    Leo Beck grips his targets tightly and doesn't let them go.
  3. Pursuit
    Waiting for prey to expose their weakness is indeed feasible, but sometimes excellent hunters will choose to attack first.
    • Basic Objective: Hit a survivor after you use Blink 1 time
    • Advanced Objective 1: Hit a survivor after you use Blink 2 times
    • Advanced Objective 2: Hit a survivor after you use Blink 3 times
    Secret 2: After the fire, people found burn marks and a few pieces of tattered clothing in what remained of the building. They also found these words on the wall: I will find you.
  4. Unleash
    When the fury can no longer be suppressed, you need to find a way to discharge it.
    • Basic Objective: Eliminate all survivors
    • Advanced Objective 1: Eliminate all survivors
    • Advanced Objective 2: Eliminate all survivors
    Leo Beck is filled with fury. You'd better pray that you don’t run into him.[1]
  5. Cat and Mouse
    Sometimes, pursuit and escape is a long process.
    • Basic Objective: Wound survivors 3 times
    • Advanced Objective 1: Wound survivors 5 times
    • Advanced Objective 2: Wound survivors 7 time
    Leo Beck has found joy in this dull position as a hunter.
  6. Discipline
    Outside of the power vested by the law, the desire to punish others is classified as anger.
    • Basic Objective: Place 2 survivors on rocket chairs
    • Advanced Objective 1: Place 3 survivors on rocket chairs
    • Advanced Objective 2: Place 4 survivors on rocket chairs
    "It looks like fireworks are lit. It reminds me of old times."
  7. Surprise
    Life needs surprises, as do games.
    • Basic Objective: Hit a survivor after Transport 2 time
    • Advanced Objective 1: Hit a survivor after Transport 3 times
    • Advanced Objective 2: Hit a survivor after Transport 4 times
    It looks like Leo Beck has leveled up. He has become faster and scarier.
  8. Blindside
    Focus is an excellent trait-- for hunters, at least
    • Basic Objective: Terror Shock Survivors 1 time
    • Advanced Objective 1: Terror Shock Survivors 2 times
    • Advanced Objective 2: Terror Shock Survivors 3 times
    Secret 3: A strange-looking scythe. I don't know who it belongs to.
  9. Unstoppable
    When your anger reaches boiling point, can anything stop you?
    • Basic Objective: Destroy 1 pallet
    • Advanced Objective 1: Destroy 3 pallets
    • Advanced Objective 2: Destroy 5 pallets
    The pallets can be easily destroyed, but they can slow a hunter down.
  10. The Wanderer
    I will find you.
    • Basic Objective: Puppets or Phantoms hit Survivors 1 time
    • Advanced Objective 1: Puppets or Phantoms hit Survivors 2 time
    • Advanced Objective 2: Puppets or Phantoms hit Survivors 3 time
    Secret 4: An old newspaper reports that a strange, bandaged man is wandering around an abandoned factory. It looks very similar to Leo Beck.
After deducing Node 10: The Wanderer, Hell Ember's Worn Clothes costume will be unlocked.

2019 Character Day Letter[]

An Unsent Letter

Dear Leo,

I know you won't be happy seeing this letter. In fact, I know you'll be pissed. Freddy proposed to me.

I said yes.

I'm not asking for your forgiveness with this letter. I know I'm about to do something really bad.

For the sake of Lisa, however, please consider carefully the investment we debated.

Competitions among weaving factories are fierce, I know.

But please believe me, everyone needs new clothes, but rifles are no "daily necessities".

Not to mention, why do you think people will buy rifles from you?

No one from the previous five generations of the Becks was good at hunting!

I'm sorry. There I go again.

I shouldn't tell you how to do business.

But my dear, I can't help but hope that you will make a wise decision.

Take care of Lisa, and find a more suitable woman for yourself.

Once again, I'm really sorry.

Martha Remington

2020 Character Day Letter[]

Evidence no. 24 of the Arms Factory Fire

(A stack of paper, the top sheet seemed to be an unsent letter with traces of repeated corrections)

Dear Lisa:

How are you doing at the orphanage? I've asked the priest to give you a bottle of milk every day. Do drink it, please. It's getting cold these days. You have a habit of kicking your blankets off at night. While you may have learned that from me, it's a bad habit and you must get rid of it.

As for your mother, the fact that she chose to leave has nothing to do with you. You aren't an unwanted child. She (the words were erased and couldn't be read).

My child, I have to leave this place to look for another way to make money.

Don't come and find me.

You need to grow up and live a good life.

Going forward, remember not to trust people easily. Live for yourself. You won't get lucky by being nice. It took Father too long to learn this lesson, but I know you're smart and you'll know what to do.

Lastly, remember our little game with fire and scarecrow? That cursed factory would be your toy soon. This is probably the only thing your useless Father can do for you.


(The remaining content was incomprehensible due to the smoke. There were also stacks of invoices beneath the letter. On an exposed corner, it read: Beneficiary of Compensation: Lisa Beck)

  • Hold the puppet button to throw it, then immediately teleport to it to jump from a high height and attack, which suffered from no cooldown.
    • Throw to the cipher machine to jump scare and attack them.
  • Use Fury to break pallets and free hit survivor.
  • Because of the fact that Puppets detect nearby survivors, Leo doesn't need to camp chairs that have survivors. He can just teleport when it detects a target.
  • Leo is one of the hunter that is bad at ending chases in early game, which can be solved by using Insolence, Confined Space, Blink, and Fury.


  • Emma Woods is his daughter.
  • His Character Day, December 21st, is the same day as his daughter’s birthday.
  • He is interested in handicrafts.
  • He is skilled at leather working.
  • He loves his family.
  • He hates mice and foxes like Emma does.
  • If a puppet is thrown upward towards trees and Hell Ember teleports to it, Hell Ember will occasionally fall from the air.
  • Strangely, in Emma's deduction story, he has his worn outfit instead of his original outfit.
  • His King Arthur and Eternal King skins are a reference to the British's legendary king of the same name and the Arthurian legends.
  • He shares some traits of The Trapper from Dead by Daylight, to the point where he can be considered an equivalent.
  • Leo was originally supposed to have a sickle for a weapon, then a chainsaw, and finally, it was changed into a stuffed shark.
  • His stuffed shark was originally blue, but it was changed to black upon player's request.
  • After completing his and Emma's Character Day quests, you will receive only one letter; the 2019 letter, or the 2020 letter if you were there for the 2019 event.
