The Evil Within 2 sure seem to be focusing a whole lot on one of its main villains – Father Theodore. Theodore was introduced to us in the last gameplay trailer, and now we get a new video that is all about this mysterious zealot.

You can watch the video to learn more about Theodore and his purpose inside STEM. But don’t go digging too deep – Bethesda warns us that details about his past push into “HUGE SPOILER territory.”

What we do know is that Theodore considers himself to be a god. He wants to control of STEM, and mold it according to his vision. For that, he needs Lilly, Sebastian’s daughter.

Those who try to oppose Father Theodore end up being burned alive by his monstrous disciple – a deformed man armed with a flamethrower. We’ve seen glimpses of this creature in other trailers as well, and it will probably be one of the major enemies in the game.

So there you have it – Father Theodore. Not a nice person by any standards, but should be an interesting antagonist. If you’re curious about how The Evil Within 2 plays, you cna check out our hands-on experience at Gamescom.

The Evil Within 2 releases worldwide on October 13, which is a Friday mind you, on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC.
