Role In Plot Edit
Chapter 3: Into The Abyss Edit
The player, Lauren, awakes in a field in Oakside Park, near the Kullman Mining facility. As she explores the closed valley, she finds that she must enter a dark tunnel into a mountain that, as is alluded to in a collectible newspaper article, was created by Kullman Mining Co. after purchasing mineral rights from the owners of Oakside Park. As she enters, Lauren sees a sign that instructs that in the event of a power outage, six generators must be activated in order to power the emergency lift and escape. As she powers the generators, she realizes that she is being chased by the Chaser, a terrifying figure in a white hoodie with a mask (who is later revealed to be Kate as a proxy). During this, she is also harassed by the Slender Man. As all six generators are activated, Lauren activates the lift and is risen to the top of the shaft.
On Hardcore Mode, Lauren must collect gas canisters in order to power the generators.
Chapter 5: The Arrival Edit
After Lauren gets knocked out by a proxified Charlie, Lauren wakes up in a room with him guarding the staircase. After collecting a book, Charlie disappears, and crying can be heard. Lauren finds a normal Kate (unmasked and unhooded as well looking badly burned) crying in a corner. Lauren approaches Kate, only for her to turn back into the Chaser and presumably kill Lauren. The last shot of the game shows Lauren's limp body being dragged away by Kate.
