|“||A figure clad in the head of a hare. A most disturbing sight. This new foe holds something human within her. Some shards of ordinary life. She seems to be a hunter. I have met many different beings in this place, but this is the first one with a natural skill of hunting. In any other place, one could deem it a talent. But her knack for tracking, capturing and killing is something else here. There is something else in here too, she seems to seek something.||„|
|~ A unknown figure on The Huntress.|
Anna, better known as The Huntress, is one of the playable killers in Dead by Daylight.
She was voiced by Amélie Leguiader.
Anna originally lived with her mother deep within the woods, teaching her how to survive in the woods and hunt. One day, however, Anna's mother was killed by an elk the two planned to eat to survive the winter. After this, Anna survived on her own in the wild, becoming one with the wilderness around her and becoming more animal than human. After growing bored with even the more dangerous hunts in the forest, she changed her tactics to hunt anyone unlucky to bump into her. However, if the humans were little girls, she tried to take care of them herself, only them to often waste away by her own failure to care for them properly. The repeated sorrows of seeing her "children" perish caused her to raid villages to kill families only to kidnap their young daughters to care for, causing people to label her as a cannibal. Eventually, war caused those living in the villages near the forest to disappear, and even then, soldiers can still be found slaughtered by The Huntress.
After the war died down and the rumors on her stopped being told, she later was recruited by The Entity to hunt down survivors.
- The Huntress represents the "skilled hunter" type killer genre. The one who doesn't appear smart at first, but is quickly revealed to be hunting people with just as much skill and persistence as a normal monster tracks game.
- The Huntress was the first Killer in Dead by Daylight to have a ranged attack. The other three Killers to have an attack like this come after here, being The Clown, The Plague and The Deathslinger.
- The Huntress was the first "tall" female Killer, with the second one being The Plague.
