Wraith is a playable Legend in Apex Legends. As a mysterious escaped human experiment touched by the void and a competitor in the Apex Games, her moniker is "Interdimensional Skirmisher".

Name

Wraith's name has three meanings: "the exact likeness of a living person seen usually just before death as an apparition.", "ghost, specter.", and finally, "an insubstantial form or semblance : shadow."

Background

Wraith is a whirlwind fighter, able to execute swift and deadly attacks and manipulate spacetime by opening rifts in the fabric of reality — but she has no idea how she got that way. Years ago, she woke up in an IMC Detention Facility for the Mentally ill with no memory of her life before. She also began hearing a distant voice whispering in her mind that would keep her awake for days on end. Despite nearly driving her insane, once she started to listen and trust it, the voice helped her harness her newfound power of void manipulation and escape the facility.

Determined to uncover her true identity, Wraith began a quest to find out more about the experiments. Many of the old research facilities, however, are buried beneath heavily guarded arenas used for the Apex Games. Now Wraith has joined the competition, and with every match, she gets closer to the truth.

Abilities

Tactical Ability: Into the Void

Wraith steps into the void which causes her to avoid all damage for a short time. She can also see enemy players while in the Void

Passive: Voices from the Void

Voices from within the void warn Wraith about incoming danger (Enemies aiming at her, nearby traps, and incoming ordnance).

Ultimate Ability: Dimensional Rift Wraith creates and links two portals for 60 seconds, allowing anyone to travel through them. Wraith can instantly use Into the Void with enough rift energy

Heirloom: Kunai

Wraith's heirloom is a Kunai, a knife given to her by the Voidwalker Wraith during her escape.

Trivia

  • Wraith is 27 years old
  • Wraith's abilities are derived from Titanfall 2's Phase Shift tactical ability. In that game, phasing could only be performed by simulacrums and titans, so Wraith is the first human character with this ability.
  • An audio log found in-game inside the research labs reveals Wraith was a Research Science Pilot. This makes her the only confirmed Pilot in Apex Legends so far (though this does not translate into gameplay).
  • When using the Into the Void ability, you can see silhouettes of other Wraiths, possible 'paths' that the player could have taken.
  • Wraith soundboard with over 100 sounds here
