"Life's journey always ends in a similar way, and, in most people's dreams Aesop Carl is the person who helps them with their final journey. He strictly adheres to procedure and gives the greatest respect for those travelers who have come to their final stop."
Background[edit | edit source]
The end of the journey of life is always the same, and Aesop Carl is the ultimate destination for most people's dreams. He strictly follows each step of the procedure and gives the greatest respect to those who arrive at the terminal. So when he found the letter in a beautiful traveler, Aesop decided to complete his last wish for the unfortunate mother.
"On August 7, 1888, I ushered in a female body, she was stabbed 39 times in the face with a knife. She was unrecognizable. I opened my suitcase. This is the tool I rely on to survive. I can make the dead return to life. I worked hard to fix her face. She might have been a beautiful and wealthy woman during her lifetime. I groped for her pocket,and found an invitation and another letter. The letter seemed to be for her daughter, and contained a photo. Probably, following this invitation, she could find her daughter. I don't know why, but I decided to accept the invitation as my own. I should return this letter to her daughter at the manor." (As Aesop Carl was a "fan-designed" character before it got chosen by NetEase, this paragraph of description was from the original designer instead of the official record from Identity V. It seemed to be partially contradicting Aesop's deduction for some details about the reason he went to the manor do not match up. Please be noted.)
External Traits[edit | edit source]
He carries his makeup box everywhere. Opening it will summon a coffin with a surrogate in it, and immediately provide the Rebirth ability. When placed on the Rocket Chair, the player can be resurrected in that coffin using a surrogate and also receive the Tide Turner effect for 15 seconds. Every time a teammate rescues the player from a Rocket Chair, the number coffin summons for the Embalmer will increase, but an Embalmer can only summon and use one coffin at a time.
The Embalmer can record and copy the appearance of other survivors on to surrogates. The survivors whose appearance was copied will receive the Rebirth ability. Once the Embalmer finishes copying their appearance, he will lose his own Rebirth.
The time that the Embalmer can persist for when wrapped up in a cocoon or placed on a Rocket Chair is increased by 10%. The Embalmer cannot embalm survivors who have lost mobility, who have been placed on a Rocket Chair several times or who have been placed on a Rocket Chair for a long time.
Extremely sensitive to the presence of others. He is able to detect the presence of all survivors at the beginning of the game for 15 seconds. While deciphering with other survivors, his own deciphering speed is decreased by 15%.
Deduction Target[edit | edit source]
All completed Objectives reward the player with +335 Logic points for the Logic Path
Full Conclusion[edit | edit source]
'Aesop Carl' is not his real name. He adopted his last name from Jerry Carl, the embalmer from his mother's funeral. Jerry helped Aesop to become interested in the art of embalming, allowing him to take on an apprenticeship with him at his morgue. Aesop received a letter saying he was deemed unsuitable for school education, most likely because of autism, so he became Jerry's full time apprentice.
As it turned out, Jerry Carl was a serial killer who used the guise of embalming to give his victims 'mercy kills'. He taught Aesop how to use manipulation and persuasion to guide people to their deaths, convincing them to accept the idea that death is far better for them than life. If these tactics didn't work, he was told to use bromide hydrate (a highly toxic body preserver). As Aesop proved himself as an accomplice rather than an apprentice, he adopted the last name 'Carl' and performed a fake funeral for his old identity. Around the period after Aesop dropped out of school, he received a letter from a presumed friend(?) who wished to meet with him again. When Aesop comes to meet her, she is found dead in the rose garden and appears to have been killed by Jerry. With Jerry present, he tells Aesop that she was meant to die one day and that all he did was help her. Regardless of how much he subscribed to Jerry's philosophical teachings, it is possible Aesop regrets that her death had happened (referring to the description of his Remains of Yellow Roses accessory).
Later, Jerry Carl received an invitation to the manor. He returned from it alive, although with severe injuries (implying he escaped or won the game at the cost of his physical health). Aesop guided Jerry into death using the tactics that he taught him. Aesop became his mentor, and his mentor became what he hated; someone who died without accepting it. Aesop found a similar invitation letter to the manor on a girl he was embalming and took it for himself, his mission being to guide lost people - those who are heavily injured or unable to find satisfaction in life - to their deaths as he claims he finally understands why Jerry found so much joy in his work.

Tips[edit | edit source]
- Aesop's skill is pretty useless if not use correctly. His coffin reborn yourself after 10 seconds. During the time, your coffin is revealed to the hunter and it can run to the coffin to hit you. You will receive 15 seconds Tide Turner after the reborn. If the hunter catch you up, you will be tied again, lose 1 stage on the rocket chair and lose your coffin.
- If the hunter loses you, you escaped, let your teammates have more time to decode.
- When the hunter see that you are using your coffin, there is a large chance that it will get away and going around to let you died in bleeding or force you to lose your Exit Path trait.
- Remember, always place your coffin as far as possible from the rocket chair, cipher machines (avoid Teleport) and let it be placed in some area that has pallets or windows to let you escape easier right after the reborn.
- Coffin also has collision.
