|“||This thing, that I dubbed The Entity, is evil in its purest form. I find it hard to spot, but I can hear the cracking sound this loathsome thing emanates. Like a deity, it surrounds the area, closing in on me as its killers hunt me. It does not seem to be dangerous in itself. Not until you are caught and the killer hangs you from one of the abhorrent hooks. I have ended up there over and over and every time I yearn for both release as well as escape. Pain melts with fear in a most horrid way. Yet I return to it, more or less every night. Once on the hook, the Entity takes over, pulling one upwards to something else.||„|
|~ Benedict Baker's Journal, Nov. 1896|
The Entity is a nameless evil that lives in the space between our world and our imagination, the kind of place only revealed in dreams. To eat, the Entity reaches out into the hearts of susceptible victims and corrupts them into performing hideous acts because the only way for it to manifest itself in the real world is through an act of extreme violence ending in death. Once this event has taken place, the Entity has a handhold into our world, being able to pull people through this weak spot into its own nightmarish construct.
The first victims are the corrupted ones, those pushed to do the deeds that summoned this ancient evil in the first place - the killers. Some have to be tortured over endless years to be coerced into doing what the Entity wants. The Entity is ever patient and the torture ever more severe. Eventually they all cave in and start the hunt for the Entity. Prey for the Entity comes in the form of victims - survivors. Normal people who stumble into these corrupted areas and are pulled through by the Entity with no memory of how it happened. Once they awaken by the campfire in the nightmare, there is no escape for them.

- Bloodweb: The Bloodweb, dubbed by Benedict Baker, is a metaphysical concept within the world of Dead by Daylight, a space between reality and abstraction which can be accessed by both survivors and killers through their thought and sleep patterns. The Entity can trick its prey into entering the Bloodweb by lulling them into a false sense of security before afflicting them with a strong, almost unnatural sense of calm, followed by extreme drowsiness. What occurs next appears at first to be dreamless sleep, but is actually the Entity invading its prey’s dreams, bending its prey’s mind to its will.
- Killers: Killers are beings made to do the Entity's bidding, which is to relentlessly hunt and kill victims. Many killers do not go willingly, although some are happy to relentlessly sate their bloodlust. Some have to be tortured for years before they agree to do what the Entity wants, but the Entity is ever patient and the torture ever more severe, and eventually they all cave in and start the hunt for the Entity.
