|“||There's another apparition, more terrifying than anything I've ever seen, hunting amongst the shadows here. It moves like a silhouette, appearing and disappearing at the sound of a dreaded bell. It's impossible to track it. Several times it has caught me without me even seeing it closing in. Often convinced I have my back covered, it has promptly materialized right behind me to strike from close range. Stay still and watch the fog. Don't move, don't blink and for god's sake don't breathe. If you can control your fear long enough and can show self control, sometimes it is possible to see its shimmer as it glides forward if caught at just the right light. I pray for your safety.||„|

Philip Ojomo, better known as The Wraith, is one of the playable antagonists in Dead by Daylight.
Philip Ojomo hailed from another country, coming to the USA in hope to get a jump start in life. He got a job at a scrap yard known as Autohaven Wreckers, where he had a job of fixing and crushing cars. However, one day he discovered a foul secret when finding a bound and gagged man in a car he planned to crush. Ojomo's boss used his talents for crushing the cars he meant to crush for murderous intent, using him as an unwitting executioner. After his boss killed the man he planned to save and told him his true purpose, Ojomo killed his boss in his own crusher and vanished, later working for The Entity.
The Wraith is very tall, towering over all of the survivors and most other Killers. He is barefoot, walking in a way that would suggest his feet are in pain with every step. He has bandages wrapped around his waist, and wears a shawl and scarf on his upper body. His head is covered in mud with sticks protruding from the top. Three white tally marks are drawn on his face. His weapon is fashioned from the skull and spine of his former boss. It has been modified with a wooden handle and sharp blades protruding from the skull.
- The Wraith is possibly inspired by the Grim Reaper, as he is seen carrying a scythe, causes a bell to toll, and can hide himself from humans.
- Just before he swings his weapon, a rattling noise can be heard as he raises it above his head.
- The Wraith is one of the few killers with supernatural glowing eyes.
- According to Dave Richard, the Wraith and the Nurse have "something going on".
