Who is Heisenberg?

Karl Heisenberg is still somewhat of a mysterious figure. He serves Mother Miranda alongside three others: Lady Dimitrescu, Salvatore Moreau, and Donna Beneviento.

Heisenberg is a complicated character with his own personal agenda. Apart from from serving Mother Miranda, he typically hides away in a factory just outside of the Village.

The Call

In a call made by Lady Dimitrescu, she is quoted as saying: "Mother Miranda, I regret to inform you that Ethan Winters has escaped that fool Heisenberg. Because he is in my castle, and has already proven too much for my daughters to handle."

Escaped that fool Heisenberg

This phrase is in reference to Ethan's escape from Heisenberg soon after he is captured by him after arriving at the Village.

The Werewolf

It was initially speculated that Heisenberg may have been the Giant Werewolf that chases Ethan around the Village. However, events in the game reveal this to not be the case. Nonetheless, he seems to have a certain level of control over the Lycans, despite himself not being one.

Magnetic Powers

Despite not being a werewolf, Heisenberg still possesses dangerous powers. He is shown to be able to control metals around him, even managing to fully enclose and stab Ethan with metallic pieces during events in the game. In-game files reveal that he took to the Megamycete the most out of all the lords, being in full control. His mutations gave him electric organs, similar to an electric eel, allowing him to utilize them to gain magnetic powers.

Heisenberg's True Intentions

While Heisenberg is indeed a lord and son of Mother Miranda, in reality, he is just a villager that was experimented on by her. Despite his success with accepting the Megamycete, she categorized him a failure.

Heisenberg hates Mother Miranda for ruining his life and is seeking revenge by constructing an army in his factoy. He proposes a partnership with Ethan, but Ethan refuses when he learns that Heisenberg wants to use Rose's powers to kill Miranda.

I actually really like Karl Heisenberg wish we had a choice to work with him. Out of all the villains he wasn't that bad wish he got another chance to live free from Miranda.
