The Wolf Among Us - The Wolf Among Us - Episode 1: Faith
The following statements are just a theory. However , the evidence is so strong that it's very likely to be correct. By gathering clues hidden throughout the whole game , I believe we had found somebody involved in the murders. SPOILERS INVOLVED ! Proceed at your own risk !
If you visited the forum lately , you'll know there's a lot of controversy on The Red Head Guy. The following images show proof that he is following Bigby wherever he goes :
- Meeting him in the hallway , after Snow finds Faith's decapitated head :
- Why is he there ? While chasing Dee after going to Prince Lawrence :
- He is the Taxi Driver ?! close to the end of Episode 1 (also waiting in the line @ Business Office) :
- Walking around Woodsman's apartment , right after Bigby enters it (bottom right) :
- Taxi driver again , at the beginning of the game :
The fact that he is Following Bigby wherever he goes is very suspicious. However , we still need to figure why he would be following bigby and murder the ones he likes/loves , otherwise we can't accuse him. In the following picture , we have a Close-Look at this Ginger's appearance (talking about the picture on the right) :
If you look at his Tie , we can see it has Crooks on it. What kind of crooks ? A Shepherd's Crooks. The Boy Who Cried Wolf - a fable about a young shepherd who repeatedly tricks nearby villagers into thinking a wolf is attacking his sheep. When the wolf actually does appear and he calls for help, the villagers do not trust the boy and the sheep are eaten by the wolf. -- If this is him , he's definitely trying to get revenge from Bigby. the guy is a taxi driver , which is the perfect cover for hiding in plain sight
I think it's pretty obvious that it's him. The evidence is not strong enough ? You have a point ... but lets check this : Episode 3 titled "A Crooked Mile" , Episode 4 titled "In Sheep's Clothing" , Episode 5 titled "Cry Wolf" .... "Cry Wolf" ! that sound pretty promising. "In sheep's clothing" ... I see a reference there.
So I think we solved this guy's identity , but now ... is he really The Killer ? Probably not ... Does he want revenge ? Definitely ... but he's most probably just a tool. Somebody is using him for a greater , unknown cause. The real reason for all this mystery ? We can't say for sure yet ... Maybe revenge , maybe destruction (trying to awake Bigby's werewolf form) , maybe someone tries to take Bigby's place as a Sheriff , or a theory I really like : Somebody got tired of seeing The Fables live miserably and wants to free them , and so he's using Bigby for a greater plan (probably involves bigby getting in werewolf form , killing everyone and so The Fables can take over the human race .. yaaay).
Edit : An interesting thing has just crossed my mind :) SPOILER : Contains the ending of Episode 1 !!
Snow was last seen in the taxi right ? And she was supposed to head straight home . So there was no place where she could've been killed except In , or Around the taxi. We also know the Ginger Guy is the taxi driver .... so I guess that adds up to his profile.
For now I believe we got a pretty solid "evidence" ... I mean really , you can't tell me this guy is just randomly following you everywhere and has nothing to do with the murders. Hopefully , as the following episodes get released we'll be able to dig more of the story ! Until now , that's about all we have ... or is it ? xD
