Eli Clark, or the Seer, is one of 29 Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png currently featured in Identity V.

Overview[edit]

The Seer is a support character in Identity V. When the game begins, he has no decoding, kiting, or rescuing buffs and de-buffs. He can also see the Hunter and the Hunter's location for the first 5 seconds of the game. His owl patrols the map for the first 20-25 seconds and searches for teammates to mark their position, causing the owl to be unavailable for use.

The owl can block any one attack from the hunter, which is important for supporting kiting teammates or yourself. However, Hunters can also use attacks that do not have cool down time (ex. Bonbon's bombs, Violetta's web) to remove the owl before carrying out a normal attack. Every time the owl is hit, the Seer receives a 10% vaulting de-buff, which can stack up to 50%.

The owl can be charged up by looking at the Hunter and will not be charged while an owl is in use. The owl lasts for around 20 seconds before it gets tired and flies away to rest. The owl can be used to observe teammates, if the Seer sees the owl while observing the teammate, he can see the Hunter for 5 more seconds after exiting spectator mode.

Background[edit]

Eli Clark FP.png

From an early age, Eli could see "visions" and interactions with these visions caused Eli to view the world with an all-new perspective. However, this ability didn't improve his finances and a promise he made to his fiancée forced him to accept the invitation from Oletus Manor. Will his marvelous ability help him overcome his financial difficulties?

Eli became blind “After revealing the future to them who shall not know it.” Due to his ability, him and his owl share a contact that allows him to see and know his surroundings.

However, his Diary Deduction is entirely different, due to being released after the intentional idea of a "Fortune Teller". This background, however, remained unchanged.

External Traits[edit]

Icon Name Description
Owl trait.png
Owl Observes other Survivors and blocks incoming damage. Continuously staring at the Hunter will grant additional item stacks.

The Seer is accompanied by his trusted owl. When the match begins, the owl will patrol the map and mark the position of all teammates. When the owl returns, the Seer can order his owl to follow a teammate's scent, find them and grant vision of them. The owl can be ordered to block damage for a period of time at critical moments.

If the Seer or his owl continues to observe the hunter while it commits atrocities, he will gain additional block attempts.

Full Conclusion[edit]

Full Conclusion
Eli's story is one of the most enigmatic, if not the most, so I'm not sure if this conclusion is correct.

As stated in his Background, Eli already had his vision of the future from an early age, my theory is that he had already since the age of eleven, because from the background, it gives the impression that he was already watching the future from an early age. As time went by, Eli had a very large oak tree in front of his house, which he ends up seeing something falling like a "starling", he went to the hole that saw it in that tree, and found a wounded owl. Eli not would let that poor creature die, for beyond the bruise on its wings, the cold was almost upon us, and its pack was almost gone. So he brought her home and treated her, after a few days of treatment and flight training, to see if she was able to return by herself, so when she was recovered Eli took her to the oak tree again to return her to her flock. The owl did not want to return (her motive is explained in Seer's birthday letter); apparently she liked to stay with Eli, because every time he returned her to the tree, she would come back on his shoulder. My theory is that Eli at this time should be around 16 to 18 years old.

Now begins many theories of what happens in this part of the story, as there are many enigmatic points ... Eli had apparently reached a limit to see the future, but he wanted to go further, looked for several stories of wizards and druids, and eventually found a book that contained a probable ritual to resuscitate a powerful druid. After several attempts, on account of the place where he lived was conquered by Romans (why it matters in the ritual is not known why ...) he finally managed to resuscitate such a druid. Eli went to the druid for help spreading his ability to see the future, so he makes Eli's wish come true, on the condition that he couldn't tell the future to others- if he broke that oath, something terrible could happen to him. The druid explains that that owl could also contain human souls, and as he was brought to life by force, not reincarnating, he ends up giving his soul for the owl to absorb making her have abnormal powers (In the case that was my best explanation of why the owl can make magic shields for Seer and his teammates) and the souls and minds of Eli and the owl were intertwined, so he could feel what the owl felt and the owl the same.

Eli has a fiancee named Gertrude whom he deeply cares for, as stated in his deduction quest that he could not imagine a life without her. They spent a lot of time together, but her destiny was not to live after that coming winter, her father's plantation would be beset by the cold. Eli couldn't say anything because of the oath, but he ignored the consequences for his fiancee in order to tell her what she could do to avoid this future. As said by the druid, a terrible consequence happened to Eli; a mark of "M" (not an "m" but it comes closest) appears on his face and soon his vision disappears... He aviates blind, after that he ends up telling Gertrude and she comforts him. After seeing that Eli had broken her promise something resonated with the owl she had remembered something that happened to her a long time ago ... (Read Seer's birthday letter to learn Rose's story) Eli knew the nearest future his, was that he would go to a mysterious mansion, but he wanted to avoid that future, but Rose asked him to go to the mansion asking him to promise for "him" (I believe it is for the druid, because if he broke the promise again it could happen something terrible again to Eli, but I'm not sure if really "he" is the druid)

Dear [Detective],

Hope you're doing well lately!

You have successfully completed all the missions, which is very impressive!

In return, let me tell you the story of Brooke Rose, the Wife of the Welsh hero, Raven Jefferson. Here are the consequences for breaking her oath:

"The betrayed Raven was struck by a spear hurled by Grove Pepper, turned into a falcon, and flew away. Raven's uncle, Giddon, caught up with him and found him perched high in an oak tree. Giddon sang a Thanksgiving hymn, led Raven down from the oak tree, and turned him back into a human. After helping Raven recover, they reclaimed the land that has been taken over by Grove Pepper and Brooke Rose. Not only that, but Giddon caught up with the fleeing Brooke Rose and turned her into an owl, an owl hated by all the other birds.

Giddon declared the fate of Brooke Rose: You will no longer dare to show your face in the light, because you will always be hostile to other birds, and whenever they find you, they will show you no mercy... and you will never forget your name - Brooke Rose."

Poor Brooke Rose, that is why we do not encourage the breaking of an oath, let alone breaking it with your own "hands".

I have a small question for you:

Do you know the name of my Owl?

Best wishes.

Yours sincerely,

Eli Clark

Tips[edit]

  • One owl can block any one attack for the Survivor it is protecting. This includes 0.5 damage attacks like Violetta's web attacks to attacks that have fast recharge time like Jack's fog blade and Joker's rocket dash to detention attacks.
  • Timing is one of the strategies. Have your eye on the Hunter. When the Hunter's attack animation begins, use your owl. Keeping your eye on the Hunter also charges up rage.
  • You do not accumulate rage when an owl is in use or when Tide Turner is active. When an owl is in use, transition to an area that is good for kiting.
  • Eli's Hidden Achievement "Change the Future" requires the player to deploy 2 owls that block a Hunter's attack within 1 second. This can be from blocking attacks that hit you or your teammates.
  • When the hunter is breaking pallet, swing camera to accumulate a little more rage.
  • You should hide in a safe space when viewing other teammates so the hunter doesn’t take you by surprise.

Trivia[edit]

  • Seer's initial idea before his release was going Fortune Teller, and in his deduction his motive is completely different, but NetEase kept its background unchanged..
  • Eli's birthday is on 31st October, or Halloween.
  • He likes birds.
  • He dislikes vendors.
  • His owl's name is Brooke Rose.
  • He HAD a fiancée.
