My dolly!
~ Debilitas.
Debilitas is a supporting antagonist turned supporting protagonist (in Ending A) in the 2005 survival horror videogame Haunting Ground. He is the first stalker to appear in the game, despite his position as an antagonist, he is arguably by no means evil or malevolent.

History

He is mentally disabled, hulking, grotesque-looking hunchback who works as Belli Castle's gardener and handyman. Despite his appearance of massive strength, he has the mental capacity of approximately a young child, and is prone to outbursts. He can only understand simple language, and is only heard speaking short, garbled phrases: "My dolly", "Where is you!" and the rarely heard "My little poogly pie!", "Good Night!", and "me mad!" (shows if you hide at the evasion point after you push the bookcase on Debilitas). He plays with dolls, and believes that Fiona Belli is also a doll for him to play with, thus he is compelled to pursue her. Debilitas is persistent and powerful but can be easily outwitted by Fiona. He can easily kill Fiona by crushing her in a massive bear-hug and can beat her to death if she's fallen in panic.

haunting Ground

Prior to the game, Debilitas captured Hewie. He harasses Fiona and Hewie for quite a while until all three of them enter the Chapel where Fiona is forced to fight him. The battle has two outcomes: Fiona can either drop a large chandelier on top of him (this does not kill him) by luring him into two objects on the left and right sides of the room, or she can wear his health down until he falls dead on the floor.

If Fiona allows him to live, he will show his true personality as an innocent child, naive to what he has put Fiona through. Debilitas begins seeing Fiona as a holy figure when he sees her silhouetted against the light and stained glass windows of the chapel and will thus interrupt his pursuing, rendering him no longer a threat to Fiona. Fiona sympathetically comments, "Those big eyes... He almost looks like a child of sorts. The size of a giant and the mind of a child... You should be pitied, not hated. I guess I shouldn't have reacted as I did..."

He can also be visited later in his shack, where he gives her the key to the locked stall in the bathroom. The room contains boots and the key to the gate, allowing the player to obtain Ending C if they wish, although the player can continue the game normally.

If the player obtains Ending A, Debilitas appears to Fiona before she leaves the castle. He bows in her presence and treats her with respect. Debilitas looks at the overgrown trees in the garden and begins clipping them as he hums to himself, a possible Scissorman reference.

trivia

  • Fiona makes a cameo in Joe the Condor's ending in Tatsunoko vs. Capcom, along with Fiona and Hewie.
  • His area theme is "Twisted Eyes", stalker theme is "Innocent Freak" and boss theme is "Last Debilitas".
  • Debilitas may be afraid of Daniella. When Daniella is cooking in the kitchen, Debilitas will not appear, no matter how much noise Fiona makes or time that passes. The music may stop playing, but he never shows up. This might also be due to the developers unsure of what should happen if Daniella saw Fiona being chased by Debilitas. Debilitas and Daniella are never seen together in the entire game so their relationship is unknown.
  • It is unknown what Debilitas does to Fiona if he kills her. Some fans speculate that he rapes Fiona, but this seems unlikely considering how childish he is. It can be speculated that he eats Fiona, plays with her corpse, or rips her body open.
