Five Nights at Freddy’s is a point-and-click survival horror video game that puts the player in the shoes of a security guard who must survive five nights at a pizzeria full of murderous animatronic animals. The game was created by Scott Cawthon and was first released on August 8, 2014. It has since been ported to multiple platforms and has spawned several sequels. The player is cast as one of four protagonists: Mike Schmidt, Jeremy Fitzgerald, Fritz Smith, or Purple Guy (the latter being an unlockable character). The objective of the game is to survive five nights at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza without being killed by the animatronics. While most of the focus in Five Nights at Freddy’s is on surviving the animatronics, there is also a story that ties the whole franchise together. In this post, we will be exploring the lore of Five Nights at Freddy’s, specifically the character of William Afton / Purple Guy.
William Afton, also known as the Purple Guy, is the main antagonist of the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise. He is the co-founder of Fazbear Entertainment and the creator of Freddy Fazbear, Bonnie the Bunny, Chica the Chicken, and Foxy the Pirate Fox. Afton was also responsible for the murders of twelve children in 1987, which he committed by luring them into the back rooms of Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza places and stuffing them into animatronic suits.
The William Afton character is the primary antagonist in the Five Nights at Freddy’s franchise. He is also known as the “Purple Guy”, the “Man behind the Slaughter” and “Dave Miller”.
Afton was first hinted in the original Five Nights at Freddy’s game through phone calls made by an unknown individual, who speaks to Freddy Fazbear about “his friend”, and how he should come back for a visit, as well as how he misses him. This same individual is heard laughing maniacally after Freddy says “I will do what I do best… I will survive.”
In Five Nights at Freddy’s 4, more information about Afton is revealed through minigames that take place during the night phases. It is revealed that Afton was once a man who worked at Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza as a technician during its heyday. However, while working there, he became obsessed with the restaurant’s animatronics, specifically with a Bonnie-like animatronic named Baby.
Afton would eventually kidnap children and stuff them into the animatronics’ suits, using their blood as a food source for the robots. These murders would eventually lead to Afton being dubbed the “Purple Guy” by the public.
Afton’s obsession with Baby would eventually lead him to his downfall; while attempting to stuff one last child into Baby’s suit, she snapped and killed him. However,

He eventually kills her as well, stuffs her body into an animatronic suit, and sends her to Freddy Fazbear’s Pizza.
