|“||I have nothing but a fear for the feeling of blunt trap spikes grinding against my bones or for the heavy and deliberate footsteps which always inevitably reveal a plastered, sadistic grin. With the traps and the Trapper, it has so far been a constant battle between looking up and looking down.||„|
|~ Benedict Baker in his journal on The Trapper.|
Evan MacMillan, better known as The Trapper, is one of the playable antagonists in Dead by Daylight. He was a wealthy heir who snapped after being used as an enforcer by his abusive father. He is the main mascot of the series.
Evan MacMillan was originally the loyal son of Archie MacMillan, a cruel man who ran his mining company and his estate. Evan worked as his main enforcer, helping his father run his company in a productive state. Even when his father's health degraded, Evan still cared for him and followed his orders. It was when his father finally snapped when Evan truly became murderous, as he lead over a hundred men into a tunnel before sealing them inside with explosives. Archie was later mysteriously murdered himself, left to die in the basement of his house. Ever since then, Evan worked for The Entity as its plaything, used to kill an endless amount of survivors.
In other media
trapper appears in the spin-off game hooked on You alongside The Spirit,The Wraith,The Huntress,and being some of the options for the game.
Evan MacMillan is a tall, muscular Caucasian man. His skin is cracked, and his arms are covered with scars that suggest self-harm. His hands are bloody to the point that he can be mistaken for wearing gloves. He wears green rubber overalls that appear to have been poorly repaired some time in the past. His face is covered with a bone mask with small eye openings and a sharp-toothed grin fashioned on the front. His weapon is a long, rusty cleaver which he made. When The Trapper is prestiged, bloody cosmetics of his weapon, body and mask can be unlocked.
- The Trapper was the first killer made in Dead by Daylight. Naturally he became the mascot for the game appearing the most trailers and merchandise.
- He may be based on Jason Voorhees, as both are large, muscular men that wear masks, wield simple yet crude bladed weapons, and are fiercely loyal to one of their parents. Also, Jason has been known to use bear traps from time to time, whereas the Trapper uses it as his staple attack style. His status as a former miner also brings mind to Harry Warden from My Bloody Valentine.
