Niece of Derceto's last owner, Jeremy Hartwood. She is an alternative protagonist to Carnby in the first game. She then goes on to become an actress and appears in the third game.


Alone in the Dark​Edit

Emily Hartwood first appeared in the original Alone in the Dark game, as one of the two selectable characters. The other being Edward Carnby. In the game, the player has to guide Emily through Derceto, which was owned by her uncle, Jeremy Hartwood, who committed suicide.

Battling against ghouls, ghosts and puzzles, Emily eventually encounters the reincarnation of Ezechiel Pregzt, and defeats it. Only to be seen again in Alone in the Dark 3.

Alone in the Dark 3 Edit

In Alone in the Dark 3, Emily visits the ghost town Slaughter Gulch with Hill Century to produce a movie called The Last Ranger. She was part of the crew that was shooting it, until all the actors and producers were killed by the local undead, leaving her all alone with Morrison, the gunsmith.

She is used by Jed Stone as a means of reaching Carnby, being kept as a hostage. Jed later uses her as a bargaining chip to obtain Hill Century's money, but it is revealed that he just wanted to kill Carnby, and so he does. Emily is then used for a ritual to move the San Andreas fault and begin the apocalypse.

Emily is later rescued by Carnby, after one being resurrected, and escapes with him on an old train out of Slaughter Gulch.

Alone in the Dark: Illumination Edit

Emily Hartwood is the great-grandmother of the Witch. After her various other-worldly encounters with Edward Carnby, Emily began to dabble in the supernatural world. But unlike other occult practitioners she met, she learned only what she needed to protect herself.

Her great-granddaughter, the Witch, followed in her footsteps and also studied the supernatural arts. The Witch swore to use her abilities to help others, and help protect the world from evil forces, such as those that terrorized her family.

Emily, for what all indicates, does not physically appear in the game.
