|“||She really knows what she wants, and she manages to get that from whoever it is, whether it be Matt or Mike. Y'know, she's really driven, and I can definitely relate to that. (...) But also like, this character is just so fun. I really get to play the bitch, and so it was really fun to do that.||”|
— Nichole Bloom on Emily
Emily dreams of being a magazine style editor, has a passion for fashion, and dislikes not getting her way in situations. She is quick to temper, and very disagreeable when another's line of thinking is not her own.
Emily possesses what can be considered a narcissistic attitude. In a conversation with Matt, she invented two rules she praised Matt for following: "1: Emily is always right. 2: Nothing else matters because Emily is always right." Even in the face of being wrong, Emily's pride forces her to verbally lash out and put another down, Matt being at the forefront of those insults.
During the game, it is portrayed that she is "never wrong", and "everything is everyone else's fault." Whenever challenged, Emily has a talent for redirecting conversations and digressing in order to get a one up.
Despite her adamant personality, she shows a weaker side when in danger, feeling the need to be protected, and will only protect herself if needed. However, when she is alone she shows courage and independence.
Emily has a quick tongue and a sharp wit. She's well-known within the group for her withering put-downs, but that does mean that she can come across as a bit of a bitch. Always immaculately dressed, Emily prizes her appearance very highly. She believes that good taste is everything, and isn't afraid of dropping serious cash on clothes and making sure that everyone knows about it.
Emily is currently dating Matt, but only because she's rebounding pretty hard after Mike dumped her a few weeks back.
Emily is first seen when Jessica and Sam are arguing about the prank they are about to perform on Hannah. Jessica mentions that she is just looking out for "her girl Em", as Emily and Mike were in a relationship at the time. She and Jessica hide under the bed and laugh while Hannah begins to remove her clothes for Mike. Emily and her friends then reveal themselves to Hannah, and she walks out of the room, mortified. They chase after Hannah as she flees from the lodge, while Emily calls out after her.
After Mike and Matt converse, Mike walks off toward the cable car station. Emily tells Matt that she remembered she had to talk to Sam and leaves in the direction Mike walked off. Soon afterward, while Ashley is looking through the telescope, she sees Emily and Mike conversing. When Matt asks if she sees anything interesting, she can choose to show the two in an embrace, leaving Matt upset and angry.
The following segment is included only in the extended and pre-order editions of the game.Matt and Emily begin to walk back to the cable car station in search for her bag. If Matt fought Mike, Emily will ask him about his motivations behind the attack. If Emily and Jessica fought instead, Matt can either criticize her or tell her that they should start over. They find that the gate leading to the cable car is locked, so they take a detour to take them to the station.
They find a giant totem, which Emily dares Matt to stick his hand into, before seemingly being sucked into it herself. Matt soon realizes that Emily was just playing a prank on him, but they will be interrupted by a loud mysterious noise in the distance. They continue on their path and find a pig's head alongside a bloody note, with the text "Welcome Back". They then decide to head back to the lodge.
The couple stumble upon Ashley and Chris, the latter of whom believed he had just killed Josh in order to save Ashley from one of the Psycho's traps. Emily, now frightened, insists that it is best to find help and heads toward the cable car station with Matt.
Emily and Matt reach the cable car station to find that it has been ransacked. They discover that the cable car is suspended away from the station without a key to operate it, so they head towards a fire tower to radio for help. They are pushed back by a herd of deer to the edge of the cliff where Hannah and Beth fell a year before.
Emily manages to get past the deer and, with or without Matt, ventures to the radio tower to signal for help. Emily switches on the power and may also find a flare gun, which she will either keep to herself or give it to Matt if he is with her. She contacts the Park Ranger Service, and the ranger on duty promises to dispatch help to the lodge, but because of the inclement weather it will not arrive until dawn.
Suddenly, the cable supports to the tower are cut by a Wendigo, which causes the tower to fall. Emily falls out of one of the tower's windows. The tower catches on fire, falls over, and slides downwards into the mines where it then collapses into itself. If Matt is still alive, he can attempt to help her up. If Matt sided with Jessica during the argument, she will show aggression towards him. Matt can choose to confront her about Mike. He can choose to save Emily or jump to safety, but she will fall regardless of his decision.
Emily is shown to have survived her fall due to a rope catching her foot, suspending her upside down. After swinging to a ledge, her knee will be injured when the tower collapses deeper into the mines. She explores the mines looking for Matt and an exit, possibly finding clues about the disappearance of Beth and Hannah on her way.
During that time she will hear mysterious screeches and see flames coming from a flamethrower. She eventually makes her way to the elevator. After stepping out, she comes into contact with The Stranger, whom she believes to be the killer, and hides from. Emily is either caught, or attempts to make a run for it, but her path will eventually be lead to a dead end where the Stranger tries to find and assist her, despite her initial impression of him.
After discovering no way out, she soon encounters the Stranger who, as a Wendigo attacks, reveals himself to be friendly despite her protests for him to get away. She is given a bag of flares and falls down deeper into the mines as the Stranger keeps the Wendigo at bay. She will try to find another way out but is quickly attacked by the Wendigo.
During her escape, Emily may be killed by having her eyes gouged out. She is chased into a mine elevator which takes her to the above ground mining facility. She scrambles up a conveyor belt with a Wendigo on her tail, during which she may fall into an ore grinder from the conveyor belt and be killed. If she survives, she may be bitten if she gave Matt the flare gun, shot the flare to signal for help, or never found it in the first place. She escapes the Wendigo by either falling or zip lining down the ridge back towards the lodge where she finds safety with the others.
Emily, in shock of what had just occurred, struggles to explain the situation to the other members. Chris may ask her what happened and be concerned about her or Matt's well-being, but their conversation will quickly be interrupted when someone bangs on the door. At this point, the Stranger enters the lodge and explains the Wendigo to them. Emily waits with Sam, Mike, and Ashley while Chris attempts to retrieve Josh from a shed outside.
Once he returns without Josh or doesn't return at all, the group hides in the basement where Ashley may discover Emily's bite. If so, they worry that it may be contagious. Ashley claims that the Stranger told them that being bitten by a Wendigo will transform you into one. Mike agrees with Ashley and demands Emily to leave the room. Upon her refusal, he picks up the revolver and aims it at Emily's head. He can either shoot her in the eye or say that he can't go through with it and put down the gun.
Ashley picks up The Stranger's Journal and begins to read through it. On the final page, she discovers that the Wendigo's bite is, in fact, not infectious. If she reveals to the group that Emily is going to be safe, and Emily survived the previous encounter, she becomes angered at the thought of her almost dying for no reason and slaps Ashley.
Emily, along with Sam, Ashley, and potentially Chris, try to locate Mike by heading through the lodge tunnel to the Sanatorium. The group soon discovers that Mike locked the door behind him, and they travel through the mines upon Ashley's suggestion. As Sam asks who wants to descend into the tunnels first, Emily replies, "after you". She and Sam, and possibly Ashley and Chris, find a huge rock wall blocking their path. Emily, still recovering from her earlier time in the mines, turns around and heads back to the lodge with the rest of the survivors while Sam climbs up a rock wall.
If Emily had died while attempting to escape from the Wendigo, her body will be found hanging along with Chris, Jessica and Matt (if they had died before this point), and the Stranger when Sam and Mike visit the Wendigo's lair. If the Wendigo had caught her and gouged her eyes out, her body will be whole. If she fell into an ore grinder and died, her body will be hanging from head to stomach.
As the Wendigos begin to invade the lodge in numbers, Emily and whoever is left all flee from the basement to the lobby floor where they are stopped in their tracks by another Wendigo waiting for them. If Ashley concealed the truth about Emily's bite, or if she wasn't bitten at all, Emily will be the last one to leave. However, if Ashley reassured Emily, she will push Ashley into the wall, putting her at risk and making her the last one to leave. If Chris and Ashley ran outside the lodge first and Sam failed the first Don't Move Challenge while succeeding the second Don't Move Challenge, Emily will be threatened by a Wendigo. Sam here has the option of either saving Emily or running to the switch.
If Sam does nothing, Emily will be attacked by the Wendigo and have her eyes gouged out. If Sam chooses to run to the switch too early, Emily and the remaining members of the group (Mike and Ashley) will die in the explosion. If successful, Emily runs outside the lodge before the lodge explodes, killing all the Wendigos inside. She and the others that survived watch the lodge burn as the sun rises in the background, and a rescue helicopter is seen approaching them for pickup.
After the survivors are picked up, they are interviewed by the police. The number and nature of her interviews depend on the choices made.
- If Emily was bitten, she angrily tells them that Mike pointed a gun at her and almost shot her.
- If her relationship with Matt is high, and Matt died, she will express remorse over not treating him better.
- If he survived, she asks if they are done looking at him and hopes that Matt still wants to be her boyfriend despite her being a "bitch" to him.
- If her relationship with Matt is low and Matt died, she will tell the police to not put an effort into looking for him because he abandoned her at the radio tower (regardless of whether he tried to save her or not, or if he fell from the cliff).
- If he survived, she will tell the police to be rough with him since he left her for dead (regardless of whether he tried to save her or not).
- If Sam, Mike, Jessica, Matt, and Ashley have all died and she found Beth's head, she will explain the Wendigo to the police and report about her discoveries in the mines, most notably Beth's head. Once asked about Josh by the interviewers, she will state that Josh is most likely dead and that his body is probably in the mines.
She may also be mentioned by Matt and Mike.
- If Matt survived the night while Emily died in the lodge, he will learn of her demise and will be extremely dumbfounded before breaking down.
- If Matt survived the night while Emily was killed by Mike, he will learn of her demise and will be very confused.
- If Mike survived the night and killed Emily, he will confess to murdering her but will try to defend his position by claiming that she was infected and that he needed to stop her.
- Emily's eyes can be gouged out by a Wendigo if she fails to outrun it in the mines or if Sam fails to save her in the lodge.
- Emily can fall into a grinding mill while escaping from a Wendigo, crushing her legs and lower abdomen.
- Emily can be shot in the eye by Mike, who fears that her bite will turn her into a Wendigo.
- Emily can be burned alive in the lodge if Sam chooses to run for the switch too early.
When alive, Hannah wasn't taken very seriously by Emily. She willingly went along with the prank, saying "it was just a prank" while calling out to Hannah. Beth calls Emily, along with Ashley, Jessica, Matt, and Mike, jerks for pranking her sister. However, after Hannah and Beth's disappearance, Emily will show remorse for them and starts taking the blame on herself after finding clues about Beth and Hannah in the mines. Regardless, Hannah will sadistically kill Emily by gouging her eyes out when caught. Emily may find Beth's head in the mines, causing her to later inform her friends and possibly the police.
Emily and Ashley are not very close friends, but she will comfort Ashley if Chris died while trying to go back to the lodge. However, their friendship may be severely damaged (drop to zero) if Ashley argues to exile Emily from the basement after the survivors notice that Emily had been bitten. If Emily finds out that the Wendigo bite is harmless, she will respond by initially slapping Ashley, then later pushing Ashley out of the way when the survivors are escaping from the lodge basement during the final Wendigo attack. That being said, if Emily got shot by Mike, Ashley will seem frightened by him as she is seen stepping away after he tries comforting her.
- If Emily was bitten but wasn't shot by Mike and Ashley tells the truth about the bites, her relationship with Ashley will drop to zero.
Emily and Chris have a positive relationship but are rarely seen interacting together in-game. Though when Chris and Ashley make their way out of the shed, panicking over Josh's "death", they will bump into Matt and Emily. Emily will ask them what happened, express her disbelief and will insist on getting help. Chris can accuse her of just wanting to save herself. When Emily makes her way back to the lodge after her mine escape, Chris will interrogate her about what happened or express concern about her or Matt's well-being. If Emily was bitten and Chris is alive at that point, he will support the idea of Emily leaving the basement out of fear for the Wendigos from his previous encounter, but won’t explicitly state that Emily should be put down. If Emily is shot by Mike, Chris will appear to be shocked by her death.
See Emily and Jessica for more information.
During the prologue, Jessica and Emily were good friends. They both hid under the bed together during the prank and, along with Mike, appear to be the most involved in the prank on Hannah. Jessica's initial intention to partake in the prank was to protect Emily's former relationship with Mike.
In the year after, Jessica and Emily have developed an antagonistic relationship due to Mike's new relationship with Jessica, leaving Emily torn up from being dumped and feeling betrayed by her former friend. Emily and Jessica have an argument about Mike which can be encouraged or diffused by Matt. While talking to Mike, Jessica calls Emily a whore and tells him that she hopes Emily gets eaten by a bear.
Josh is the only protagonist who does not directly interact with Emily throughout the game. Their relationship is low on both ends, presumably due to Emily's persistent involvement in the prank. Josh will end the argument between her and Jess, and it is assumed he also took Emily's bag in order to prank her and Matt with the pig head. Even though Emily played a big part in the prank against Hannah, Josh did not actively seek revenge against her, but this could be because the Wendigos got in the way of Josh's initial prank. Emily will show remorse if Josh "died" in the shed and will insist on getting help.
- If Josh prefers Emily over Matt, her relationship with Josh will slightly increase.
- If Josh doesn't prefer Emily over Matt, her relationship with Josh will slightly decrease.
See Emily and Matt for more information.
Emily and Matt began dating a few weeks after Mike left her for Jessica. Throughout the game, Emily is shown to be extremely inconsiderate to her new boyfriend: calling him out on her missing bag, giving him orders, and letting him carry her bags, although Matt always complies. However, as the game progresses, it is shown that Emily actually cares for Matt, especially in the pre-order bonus chapter. By the end of the game, Emily will show concern over his well-being, and if Matt died while trying to save her, she will feel guilt and remorse for not treating him better and not doing enough to save him. If he survived and they had a positive relationship, she will ask the interviewers about Matt and worries that he may not know how "devoted" she is to him, suggesting that she truly was fond of him. If they didn't have such a positive relationship before Matt died, Emily doesn't seem too concerned and will berate him for 'abandoning' her.
Matt would think that Emily was cheating on him with Mike if Ashley lets Matt see them hugging through a telescope. Furthermore, attempting to rescue her from the toppled radio tower, he can choose to confront her over her ex, and his persistence can get Emily to reassure him she and Mike are done. Despite this, Matt has the option to risk his own life to save Emily, or jump to his own safety during the radio tower collapse.

See Emily and Mike for more information.
Mike and Emily were in a relationship at the beginning of the game but broke up during the year between the disappearance of the twins Hannah and Beth. Emily was known to be trying to make amends with Mike. Throughout the ordeal, Emily is grateful to see Mike alive and well and vice versa. However, if she was bitten, it will irreparably damage their relationship, as Mike will point a gun to her face and may even shoot her. If alive, she will express disgust for him in the police interview.
- If Emily was bitten, Mike spared Emily, her relationship with Mike will drop to zero.
Sam and Emily appear to be good friends. Although criticizing Emily for her involvement in the prank, the two seem to have a good relationship according to their relationship statuses. In the beginning of the game, Emily tells Matt she needs to go find Sam. After Emily makes it back from the mines, Sam will listen to her story. If Emily is bitten, Sam will defend her by urging against hastily shooting her and will assure her she'll be fine if Mike spares her and Ashley reveals the truth. If Emily was killed by Mike, she will be heartbroken and upset over her death. If Mike does shoot Emily, and Ashley chooses to reveal what she finds in the book, Sam is apologetic and heartbroken. Her relationship with Mike at that point will drop to zero.
