Orpheus is a detective and starting character of the Identity V story. The story is revealed through Orpheus' ability to deduce the personality and experiences of the characters through their diaries. He is described as having an almost supernatural ability to 'see' what has occurred in the past through deductions and written evidence.
Orpheus was once a famous crime novelist, but after being rescued from a fire about 10 years ago, he lost all his memories. His body recovered, but his memories never returned. Unable to do anything about his memory, Orpheus accepted his new lifestyle and founded his own detective agency. However, he received no good cases and turned back to drinking. Orpheus would awaken the next day to find cuts all over his body, with objects that he never would've touched normally. Even after Orpheus stopped drinking, days would mysteriously get skipped over with increasing frequency. He eventually found the source of his problem from the looks from his neighbors: he didn't lose track of the days at all, but instead, another persona awakened inside him, his old self.
