Now that the Resident Evil Showcase is here, we now know more about one of Resident Evil Village’s breakout characters. During the teaser for this presentation, a new face showed up. It was an incredibly tall woman. Now, she has a name. Resident Evil Village’s tall woman is Lady Dimitrescu, and Ethan Winters is in her castle. While her name didn’t come up in the video, Capcom’s official art revealed it
The Resident Evil Showcase video began with Lady Dimitrescu on the phone with Mother Miranda. Dimitrescue reported that Ethan got away from someone called Heisenberg. Resident Evil Village’s tall woman later referred to him as her “brother.” She also said the women who appear alongside her in the castle are her “daughters.” She’s working on a ceremony for her “mother.”
You can see the call at the 40-second mark of this trailer.
We don’t know what sort of supernatural creature Lady Dimitrescu could be. The tall woman might be inspired by the Japanese Hachishaku-sama yokai, which is an incredibly tall ghost. As Siliconera’s Oni Dino noted, one of Fatal Frame: Maiden of Black Water’s ghosts is based on it as well.
Here’s a better picture of Resident Evil Village’s Lady Dimitrescu. If you like her, you can get a free PSN avatar of her.
Resident Evil Village PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, and PC copies will appear on May 7, 2021. The Maiden PS5 demo is available now.
