Red is a reoccurring character in the Lakeview Cabin series. He appears in almost every chapter of the game, only absent in the Movie Theater hub level. He is known to have a wife, a son, an unknown daughter, and a third child.
Red is the protagonist and only playable character in Lakeview Cabin. He is the presumed owner of the titular Lakeview Cabin. His appearance is that of a middle-aged man with red medium-length hair, a red mustache, blue jeans, brown shoes, and a purple plaid shirt.
Red is the secondary antagonist of Lakeview Cabin III. His sprite is similar to his previous appearance in Lakeview Cabin, however he is now balding and possibly shows signs of a comb over.
During the events of Lakeview Cabin III, Red can be seen peeking around Cabin 2, disappearing when the player gets close. He can also be seen in the foreground of the screen when the player is near the Generator Cabin. He is presumably the cause of some of the 'Signs' the player encounters while playing.
Red will spawn as a hostile enemy after The Baby has been killed (or burned to a crisp), or if enough time has passed.
As an enemy, he is significantly faster than The Baby, but has significantly less health. Upon seeing his son's corpse he will begin crying and his face will get red. While he is crying he moves even faster and can outrun, even a healthy character. He spawns with the Machete weapon, but if knocked down, will drop it and pick up the first weapon he finds. If the player is holding a weapon while he is holding the Teddy Bear, he will knock the weapon out of the players hand, drop the Teddy Bear, and grab the weapon the player is holding. If the player is wearing the Baby's Mask and Red has not seen the Baby's corpse yet, Red will not attack the player and will ignore the player's attacks.
Red's Ghost is an NPC in Lakeview Cabin IV. His sprite now depicts him wearing a tuxedo and top hat, with his trademark red mustache visible.
Red's Ghost will randomly (at a rate of about 1 in 5 games) replace a single member of The Mansion. He will never replace Piggy. If found and alerted, Red's Ghost will target a player and attack them. Unlike everyone else however, he deals no damage, and disappears after diving into the player. The player will still be knocked down and can take damage from any traps in the room however.
In one of the Secret Rooms, the player can find a Portrait of Red. If the player enters this room with the character who Red's Ghost attacked, the portrait will move allowing them entrance to another room. This room features the Skull Box, a map of Lake Lilith the symbols for the Symbol Box of Lakeview Cabin V, and the decaying corpse of Red.
Red's Spirit is a playable character in Lakeview Cabin V. His spirit can be found being tormented by The Demon in Limbo. He can only be played by entering his room, while The Demon is attacking The Masked Killer. While you play as him, you can grab The Box and drop it in Limbo for other players to obtain. After it has been brought to Limbo, it will appear in Lakeview Cabin III, in Cabin A next to the Wooden Box.
A Portrait of Red (presumably the one from Lakeview Cabin IV) can be found in the Attic of the Abandoned House. If brought to Limbo, this painting will smile and make audio cues when brought to parts of Limbo, in reaction to the numbers on the pillars.
