Luchino Diruse, or Evil Reptilian is one of 22 Hunters IconHelpLoading hunter.png currently featured in Identity V Identity v.png.


Luchino Diruse was an outstanding scholar who was fascinated with reptiles. Not soon after getting a rare poisonous snake from his colleague, Luchino suddenly vanished. In his room, people found bloody scales on the ground. The strangest thing is that those giant rough green scales are hard and don’t seem to belong to any known reptile... [1]

Deduction Target[]

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

  1. Research

What encourages us to conduct research? It’s greed. The greed for knowledge.

Basic Objective:

  • Jump in the air a total of 3 times

Advanced Objective:

  • Jump in the air a total of 4 times
  • Jump in the air a total of 5 times


Diary 1: The feeling we have about the world determines who we are. And the feeling I have about the world is unknown. Won’t people be disturbed about those obscure information and ambiguous hints? If a question is not answered satisfactorily, it will keep on lingering in my brain.

  1. Venom

Is there any work that has no risk? So long as the return is worth it…

Basic Objective:

  • Jump to quickly shorten the distance between a survivor 1 time

Advanced Objective:

  • Jump to quickly shorten the distance between a survivor 2 times
  • Jump to quickly shorten the distance between a survivor 3 times


Document 1: The beaded lizard is 57.91 cm in length with small scales that look like beads. Except for its stomach, most of its scales are covered with bone dermis. Its venom may cause respiratory failure to a big rat, but its effects on humans is limited - local edema in the bitten area with pain lasting up to 24 hours, along with sweating and decreased blood pressure. For this species, their tails won’t grow back once they’re broken off.

  1. Social

This is a side effect of my job.

Basic Objective:

  • Jump without touching any obstacles 2 times

Advanced Objective:

  • Jump without touching any obstacles 3 times
  • Jump without touching any obstacles 4 times


Diary 2: Dr. Duquein Thompson is doing a good job in keeping his thoughts to himself, but time will tell. Perhaps I was the reason his “matchmaking” business failed, or perhaps his values came into play. “If a person can’t be enticed, then he is a potential enemy.”

  1. Food tasting

The importance of dosage is often neglected in sophistry.

Basic Objective:

  • Jump on a platform 1 time

Advanced Objective:

  • Jump on a platform 1 time
  • Jump on a platform 2 times


Document 2: The phantasmal poison frog is 1.6-2.7 cm in length with a wide head, a short nose, and smooth skin. Its first finger is longer than its second finger, and all of its fingers are webbed. Its back is usually green or yellow with stripes. Its pain-relieving effect is better than morphine.

  1. Shortcut

Can money buy everything?

Basic Objective:

  • Jump off a platform 1 time

Advanced Objective:

  • Jump off a platform 1 time
  • Jump off a platform 2 times


Diary 3: Dr. Duquein Thompson’s announcement brought him a lot of research materials. I can’t wait to find out what his new research topic is. Hopefully, he won’t turn these materials into new “exhibits.”

  1. Predicament

Pursuing unlimited knowledge with one’s limited lifespan is doomed to fail.

Basic Objective:

  • Break 1 pallet with Lethal Crash

Advanced Objective:

  • Break 2 pallets with Lethal Crash
  • Break 3 pallets with Lethal Crash


Document 3: The Gila monster is 30-60 cm in length with scales, much like the ones on beaded lizards. Its color patches are bigger and more colorful. Its tail is thick and strong, but it won’t grow back once it’s broken off. Its venom may cause numbness to limbs, nausea, and lethargy, but it’s not fatal with immediate treatment. Larger wounds may be inflamed and extremely painful.

  1. Nobody

We always neglect those who blend into the background.

Basic Objective:

  • Hit with charged attack 1 time

Advanced Objective:

  • Hit with charged attack 2 times
  • Hit with charged attack 3 times


Diary 4: The laboratory janitor told me about a peculiar snake. He claimed that this type of snake could grow four limbs within ten or so days. That may sound like a wild man’s crazy story, but I soon realized that he’s serious. I suggested to him that he should put on gloves or use other tools to catch that “snake.” Perhaps we’ll discover a new species together.

8. Temptation

Knowing it’s a trap but heating towards it anyway.

Basic Objective:

  • Jump and hit a survivor 1 time

Advanced Objective:

  • Jump and hit a survivor 2 times
  • Jump and hit a survivor 3 times


Diary 5: Dr.Duquein Thompson made me an irresistible offer to study the unknown lizard species. Or perhaps it’s a snake. Anyway, this means I have a chance to confirm and establish a new species. This sounds too good to be true, but how can I say no?

9. Trap

The best traps are those which people step into willingly.

Basic Objective:

  • Hit a survivor with Lethal Crash 1 time

Advanced Objective:

  • Hit a survivor with Lethal Crash 2 times
  • Hit a survivor with Lethal Crash 3 times


Document 4: This creature has fully formed forelimbs, its hindlimbs are not fully devellped, and there are no outer earholes on the sides of its head. It’s covered in grayish-brown square scales, and the scales on its stomach are bigger than those on its back. Its eyes can blink and they have nictitating membranes. We have examined its oral cavity which has hollow fangs in the anterior part of the maxilla. The venom appears to be ineffective as the rat is behaving normally.

10. Boundary

It’s only when we cross a boundary that it becomes clear.

Basic Objective:

  • Within a short duration after landing a Lethal Crash hit, hit survivor 1 time

Advanced Objective:

  • Within a short duration after landing a Lethal Crash hit, hit survivor 1 time
  • Within a short duration after landing a Lethal Crash hit, hit survivor 1 time


Diary 6: The wound is getting dry and rough, but it doesn’t hurt. My stamina has improved, I’m more sensitive to smells, and my old scars are fading. Unlike the Gila monster and the beaded lizard, the venom of this creature may change the world! I should speed up the experiments.

(If anyone could edit the numbers that display, that would be much appreciated, but these are all deductions I've uncovered in-game.)

Character Day Letter[]

Dear Ms. Gilman,

As you mentioned in your previous letter, we've launched an investigation into Walker's foster family in the Lakeside village and have continued to observe their movement.

During our investigation, we've discovered that Walker's brother, Darren, is a janitor working for the university laboratory. A laboratory professor went missing recently, and the police department has found a large, cryptic scale from the lab. According to our sources, the scale recovered from the lab is similar to the scales our investigators have found in the local woodland in Lakeside Village. What concerns us is the fact Darren also went missing, leaving his bedridden mother behind.

This series of disappearances are all linked to the Lakeside Village, and our investigators suspect these disappearances to have something to do with the crime syndicate. We regret to inform you that we will cease all investigation from this point forward, for we place great importance on our investigator's safety. All prior payments will be refunded within the week.

I wish you well.

As Luchino[]

  • Use his jump to play mind games with survivors.
  • Remember that when jumping, the terror radius only appears when you start approaching. Aim from a distance to catch your prey off-guard.
  • Practice looking down when aiming from long distances to make injuring survivors with lethal crash easier.
  • Use auto-aim. You cannot afford to fumble around for your target around you once you landed so use auto-aim to swing wildly after landing.
  • Use his jump to scale buildings quickly.

Against Luchino[]

  • Luchino is even weaker than Hell Ember at cutting chases. His skills rely on going backwards from a distance then jump across to be closer to the survivor. Also, looping is really helpful for going against Luchino, making him wasting time chasing a single survivor with only a basic attack.
  • Do not pull pallets recklessly. It gives Luchino a big window of opportunity to injure you with his crash.
