She inherited incredible fury from her ancestors. The wrath that flows through her veins is her legacy. The terrible pain she suffered set it off. Swift and lethal, The Spirit exacts her revenge endlessly.
~ A unknown figure on The Spirit.

Rin Yamaoka, better known as The Spirit, is one of the playable killers in Dead by Daylight. She is a vengeful wraith and the descendant of Kazan Yamaoka, a wrathful samurai who was turned into The Oni.

She is voiced by Gabrielle Murphy.


Rin has messy black hair, pale skin, gashes all over her body, glass shards stuck in her right shoulder and legs, glowing white eyes, and bandages covering parts of her body.


Rin was the only child of the Yamaoka family who became deep in debt after her mother became ill. This required Rin to work part-time and her father to work almost all the time to try and get a promotion, which caused him to begin losing sleep as a dark whisper reminded him of his hopeless situation. But the worst came when her father begged his superiors for anything to gain more money, only for the company had launched a faulty product which caused the man to receive the blame and be fired for it. This caused him to snap, causing her father to viciously murder her mother. After Rin came home to see the damage he done, her father attacked her, only to be stopped, slashed several times by her father's katana, and thrown through a partition. Now bleeding from the sword and the glass, she vowed vengeance as her life faded away. As she died, a dark mist enveloped her and fueled her rage. Resurrected, Rin is implied to have murdered her father as she became a servant to The Entity, becoming known as The Spirit.

Rin's lore is further explained in in-game cutscene and her Tome, Steeped in Blood. Her father encouraged her to master the shinai in order to uphold her legacy as she is a Yamaoka. She was concerned about his issues, but refused to add up to his pain. At school, she was bullied a lot, with her classmates calling her "Janitor Yamaoka" and mocking her swordplay. One day, she was having a practice spar when she was filled with thoughts to defeat another human being from a "dragon in her heart", but she was initially confused about these strange thoughts at first. When she defeated her opponent, she felt powerful and worthy of the Yamaoka name. Soon, she was attacked by her bullies, jealous of her skills. She tried to flee and hide from them, but the dragon in her heart admonished her for her cowardice. In the evening, she was walking home when the bullies attacked her again, this time beating her up mercilessly. Her feelings awoke the dragon, which was actually the rage she inherited from the Yamaoka lineage, and she attacked them until they shed blood. Seething with rage, Rin had awakened the strength of her ancestors.
