Melly Plinius, or the Entomologist, is one of 29 Survivors IconHelpLoading survivor.png currently featured in Identity V Identity v.png.

Overview[edit | edit source]

The Entomologist is a containment-type Survivor. Her ability allows her to place down honey on pallets and windows, allowing teammates and herself to vault faster.

She can place down her bee swarm with her net, which can be used to push players and slow down Hunters. The bees' pushing speed is faster than a regular Survivor's walking speed, and can be used to push the Entomologist to another cipher faster. It can also be used to aid kiting Survivors, either by pushing the Hunter away or by boosting the Survivor kiting.

The bees also slow down the Hunter's movement speed by 70% when the Hunter passes through them. The Hunter can attack the bees with two hits, which both lack a cooldown, for them to disperse.

Background[edit | edit source]

Melly Plinius FP.png

Pliny has always been an object of interest in the world of biology, partly because of her talent, from a poor housemaid on a Farm to a rising star in biology.

The story doesn't always have listeners, not to mention that in insect research, it also has extremely unique ideas, especially regarding winged insects. She seems to have the ability to control these flying creatures and can understand their every move. While more and more rumors were spreading about her appearance, Melly rarely appeared in public. Compared to the craving for learning, it seems to have been more dependent on wandering through dense forests, swamps, and deserts. There she could find strange insects.

She appeared several times in public in heavy headdresses that covered her entire face. Someone said it was only because she was ugly and didn't want to look at people with her true face. Someone said that it was only because she was very beautiful and afraid that people would focus all their attention on her appearance rather than on her research.[1

External Traits[edit | edit source]

External Traits
Icon Name Description
Entomology The Entomologist carries a net that can assemble a swarm of insects in front of her.

The swarm will form a barrier so that Hunters passing through it will be disrupted and their movement speed will be reduced by 70%. Survivors won't be affected. At the same time, the barrier can block certain abilities.

Once the insects are assembled, the Entomologist can switch her camera and manipulate the swarm of insects to turn left or right, or move forwards.

When the swarm of insects moves at high speed, it will propel forward Survivors (including the Entomologist herself) who have no other operations engaged. It can also disrupt the Hunters' movement.

Hunters can disperse the swarm of insects by attacking twice (without triggering attack recovery).

Mixed Reagent A special reagent created from a mixture of extracts from various insects. It can lubricate pallets and windows when vaulting to increase Survivors' vaulting speed by 10%.
Fragrance Her location is shown for an additional 5 seconds upon leaving a Hunter's line of sight as her body's fragrance lingers.
