These are the Antagonists who hinder The Protagonist's progress in the Story.
Types of enemies Edit
These enemies are most abundant at the beginning of the game when the protagonist runs through the monochromatic forest.
They wear black clothing, and also recognizable simple masks with two holes for sight. They patrol the areas they are in with sometimes ranged weaponry or a flashlight. The protagonist will be shot, or forcefully held-down if spotted.
The dogs (named "holves" within the game files, possibly a portmanteau of hounds and wolves) are the animals trained to hunt down their target. They pursue the protagonist at times where there are soldiers, and actively pursue them throughout the game in various places within human territory.
Their range of attack is a simple pounce, so if the protagonist is close enough to an object/area proved to bring safety, such as a fence or slope, the protagonist can escape.
At one point in the game, it is shown that the dogs are afraid of fire. This is shown by the dogs moving away when the protagonist swings a torch.
The Mermaids appear around the underwater levels in the middle of the game when the protagonist gains access to a submarine. They have long black hair, and some of them appear to have wires coming out of them. Their behavior is similar to the dogs, but it is restricted to only the areas with water, so the protagonist can escape by seeking surface.
The protagonist, if inside the submarine, can shine the built-in light to halt the Mermaid's movements and force them to retreat, giving the protagonist more time to reach their intended location. These creatures can break into the protagonist's submarine and subsequently kill them, by forceful drowning, if the light isn't used strategically.
The protagonist at one point falls into the water and gets forcefully drowned by a Mermaid. At this part the creature is completely unavoidable. After the protagonist stops struggling and is undeniably dead, the creature attaches a plug-like device, (similar to the ones attached to The Huddle,) to the protagonist. Which then in a few minutes revives them and gives them the ability to breathe underwater and mind-control without a helmet. No other Mermaids are seen again afterwards.
