Dead Ringer
Dead Man Walking, known to the Plumbers as Dead Ringer, is an interstellar murderer that has eluded capture on several different worlds.


Reports on Dead Man Walking's actual appearance are few and far between, and are wildly inconsistent. His appearance varies based on the planet that he was last seen on, typically matching that of his latest victim. In some cases (notably among those who would be able to notice this) his head appears to be decayed in some form, appearing as just the skull.


The only thing connecting Dead Man Walking's victims are their injuries, which are usually three holes around the heart with occasional signs of struggle. It is unknown if these injuries are a facet of DMW's powers or personality. The only other connection is that the series of murders only occur on one planet at a time, however the order of the planets he attacks are seemingly random.

The first reports of Dead Man Walking's activity occurred on the planet Pyros, followed later by Augstaka, Sangerosia, and Kinet. Aside from those planets, DMW has also attacked Petropia, the Milky Way Incarcecon, several space station cities, and most recently the Earth.


  • Dead Man Walking's abilities are partially inspired by the Your Eternal Reward knife from Team Fortress 2.
    • The name Dead Ringer is also a reference to the invis watch of the same name from TF2
  • The original version of Dead Man Walking's image contained an Orishan form. This was replaced with an Ornithis form because the Orishan form didn't show off the skeletal head gimmick due to being entirely exoskeletal.
  • Dead Man Walking was created as an entry to CaT's Spooktober Horror Contest 2: Alienation.
