"Her unbearable sorrow grew long, mournful hair over time."
- Wall Gazer
The Wall Gazer (F-01-18), previously known as Woman Facing the Wall, is a pale, bare woman with long, black hair that completely obscures her face. She kneels with her hands pressed against the wall and occasionally stretches her neck to inhuman lengths.
- Might decrease when getting a Normal Result.
- Very likely to decrease when getting a Bad Result.
- Performing Attachment work.
When the ability is triggered, this will cause a 'jumpscare', with a female scream and distortion of the screen, dealing moderated White Damage to all the employees of the same department, even if they are out of the department.
Additionally, employees with Temperance Level 1 will panic at the end of work from turning back to face her, with her neck stretching to face them. At the start of the work, a 'Silent' speech bubble will appear next to her for a short moment.
The exact details of her origin are currently unknown, but it's mentioned in her last encyclopedia entry that a female subject is described with a similar behavior of the Abnormality after an interaction with her, because of knowing her name.
How and where the Abnormality was captured is still unknown, as well how she got her anomalous effects.
Wall Gazer responds to the four works in order of best to worst: Attachment, Instinct, Repression, and Insight.
Beware, even when Attachment is a work with an always successful work result, it will decrease her Qliphoth Counter and might trigger her ability.
Like all Abnormalities, her energy output is determined by the number of PE Boxes (Positive Enkephalin boxes) at the end of the interaction.
Wall Gazer's emotional state is divided into 3 sections: Bad, Normal, and Good. Completing 0-3 E Boxes will cause her to feel Distressed, completing 4-7 will cause her to feel Normal, and 8-14 will cause her to be Happy. Her usual waiting time after a task is around 10 seconds. Its Qliphoth Counter is 2.

E.G.O. Equipment Edit
- "An Abnormality in the form of a woman facing a wall. Her unbearable sorrow grew long, mournful hair over time."
- "As she always faces the wall, no one has seen her face. As she talks to herself and weeps, it is impossible to have a meaningful conversation with her. Despite her human appearance, it is impossible to discern her intentions."
- "The Abnormality attempts to talk to or peak the interest of employees who are about to leave the Containment Facility. However, employees should never look back."
- "<Excerpt from Observation Log 1-304>
There is only one rule: Ignore her. She always wants to draw our attention. She mutters incoherently in an attempt to have those in the room pay closer attention to her. She even pleads or whispers maliciously when someone is about to leave in hopes that they would instinctively look back. Subconsciousness is a threat to your own health in her presence. It is important to always have your guard up and be aware of what is happening when you are in the room with her. If you forget even for just a second and let your guard down, you may find yourself looking back. Here is another warning I leave to all who reads this: Do not let this insidious Abnormality learn your name. If she learns of your name, she may use it to trick you into turning towards her. No matter what you hear or what she may tempt you with when you are in the room with her, DO NOT look at her. Curiosity is a luxury you must NEVER indulge in when you are in the containment unit."
- "<Excerpt from Counseling Log #9-39>
Employee F5004: <Redacted> was a colleague for whom I cared deeply. Well, I cared for all my coworkers, but <Redacted> was different. The amount of passion <Redacted> poured into the work was something I have rarely witnessed. Anyways, I have no idea how she learned <Redacted>’s name. Maybe someone called out to <Redacted> while they were inside the containment unit and she heard it. We should have sent two in. It is procedure to have a team of two sent into the containment unit but as you know, we're always shorthanded. And this Abnormality was low on the threat scale. Even if we did follow procedure and sent two inside, the higher-ups would not have been happy about it. (Omitted)
Well, you know the rest. The day the incident happened, <Redacted> was sent to the containment unit as usual, but didn’t come out for a long time. I knew <Redacted> was a prompt and diligent worker, so I went straight to the containment unit fearing the worst. Thankfully, I found <Redacted> without even a scratch, but the kid looked out of it. Like, way out if it. (Omitted)
The next day, the kid was "let go." I heard they sent the kid to a mental asylum, but no one ever saw <Redacted> again. The kid kept staring at the wall, murmuring and not responding to anyone. That was the last time I saw <Redacted>. No one knows what happened inside the containment unit. You won’t hear it from the kid either."

- Her ability "Orpheus" (see Legacy version) is a reference to a Greek mythological character of the same name. The story is about him and his wife, Eurydice, who died from stepping on a viper while trying to escape Aristaeus. Orpheus had a great ability with music, which allowed him to retrieve his wife from the Underworld on one condition: He couldn't look back at her until they left the Underworld. However, before they reached the Upperworld, his anxiety overtook him and he looked back at her. He lost her once again, eventually he himself being killed on Dionysus's orders to join her in the underworld.
- In this case, Wall Gazer will bring consequences to everyone who looks back to her.
- In one of her entries, it is also mentioned that those who look back at her might turn into stone, which might be a reference to a Greek mythological creature, the Gorgon.
