Maurice The Horse - Dead By Daylight lore, rumours and speculation

Maurice The Horse in Dead by Daylight

Maurice The Horse in Dead by Daylight
February 15, 2024 - We've updated our Maurice the Horse Dead By Daylight guide.

The Dead By Daylight Maurice the Horse story is one filled with twists, eventually leading us to The Clown. So this is everything we know about them from its humble beginning to its crossover with The Dredge last year.

The Dead By Daylight 29 (Alien) season shook things up last year in ways that people didn't see coming and this led to a panic. Rather than taking aim at a survivor, that season's big killer aimed his sights at Maurice. Here's what we know.

Who is Maurice the Horse in DBD?

Maurice the Horse is a fun demonic horse character that was hidden at the back of Father Campbell's Chapel, one of two maps in the Crotus Penn Asylum. Maurice had three eyes, one of which allowed the Entity to see out into the world.

When he disappeared last year, this sparked forum posts and self-aware social media posts around the web.

Dead by Daylight first introduced Maurice way back in Patch 2.0.0, which took place in May 2018. This was when the Clown was introduced, which saw the release of new maps and some fascinating lore.

Maurice the Horse belongs to the Clown and is at the very back of the map of Father Campbell's Chapel where you can find him lying down near his owner's cooky caravan.

If the creature's third eye wasn't enough to alert you to its irregular origins, its visibly rotten body definitely can. If you haven't paid close enough attention to it already, though, it's too late. Maurice the Horse has disappeared, and people are starting to notice and ask: where is Maurice the Horse now?

What did the Dredge do to Maurice the Horse?

The Dredge is a killer made from almost pure evil, sucking things into the vacuum in its body and taking them as part of his skin. Last year, Maurice disappeared from where he normally sat and people knew it had something to do with The Dredge.

He then came back to the map a little while later and The Dredge was given a new skin, incorporating Maurice into his own body.

If you're in the game yourself, just select The Dredge, wait a few seconds, and you'll see proof of the crime committed with your very eyes. The Dredge has largely been caught red-handed at this point, but there's still little to suggest why Maurice the Horse has been handed a death sentence after years of being a simple little easter egg at the back of an old map.
