What was The Dredge doing before it was taken?
I really don’t think it was taken directly after Otter Stamper summoned it, it’s in game description isn’t really specific on where it went after it appeared from the ground. Most, if not all, killer bios end with “and then they disappeared into the fog lol,” but Dredge’s bio doesn’t. There’s no mention of any fog, he just says “peace out” and vanishes into darkness.
The descriptions for Dredge’s cosmetics all suggest it was travelling long distances for long amounts of time. “Gangrenous Thews” and “Skeletal Mass” imply that the Dredge traveled around long enough that weather started eating away at its organic components, and soon they all just decayed away completely. I do not believe that these cosmetics are results from elements within The Entity’s trials, as the cosmetic “War is Hell” implies that Dredgy Boy literally came across an old battlefield from ancient Greek history. Not a single place like that is currently known to exist in The Entity’s realm, so we can not only assume the Dredge was in the real world for a considerable amount of time, but somehow left the island Otter Stamper summoned it on.
What the hell was it doing all this time? All the other monster killers we have answers for. Demogorgan has a whole TV show for his story, and the Xenomorph’s lore directly states that it’s the same one from the first Alien movie. What was Dredge doing for the massive amount of time it was out? You can’t convince me it was just floating around eating fools, because if he spent long enough dragging his turkey ass across London or something to eat people, don’t you think someone would’ve seen it? Or even came across remnants of its presence? We technically have this already, as the reveal trailer for Dredge showed Haddie coming across this exact scenario, but we have nothing else. All we get to see is what is assumed to be right before it was taken when it was just chilling in a closet. We need archive lore for the Dredge, why haven’t we by now?
I think this is really just a plea for BHVR disguised as a rant. Please give us Archive Lore for Dredge, you give it such sick cosmetics yet leave it in the dirt while you write half-assed stories about a bore-merchant named Adriana. I want to know what this turkey blob was doing as it traveled around, I want to hear gross and grisly stories, PLEASE. You have no idea the potential for a good story when you give us a monster like this. Please.
