Slender: The Arrival



Carl Ross, better known as CR, is the deutertagonist and playable character of Slender: The Arrival, trying to aid Kate in her time of need.

In The ArrivalEdit

Carl was a close friend of Kate and kept in touch with her through various means. Carl much like Kate suffered from hallucinations of Slender Man and tried to get help from his doctor. While the two kept in touch he eventually revealed he had feelings for her. Kate stopped replying to him and despite this he continued to write to her.

CR's growing curiosity to the strange visions eventually got the best of him and he went to investigate the Matheson Farmstead. While there he finds various hints that the Mathesons have been watched by Slender Man for generations. Despite his findings he was chased by the now proxified Charlie Matheson Jr. off the property.

He eventually made his way back to Kate's house and once there he led her to the radio tower. He kept trying to get Kate to follow him and goad her into coming with him, while also delving into insanity. Once the two arrived at the radio tower he tried to get her to commit suicide by fire. Kate was unable to bring herself to do it and ran off, but CR still proceeded to douse himself in gasoline and burns himself alive. His charred remains were later found at the end of the tunnel by Kate's friend Lauren, along with a tape player which revealed to Lauren the events that transpired in the radio tower.


  • On the wall in the cave in Flashbacks there is a message that reads "Don't give him twenty dollars!" This is a reference to an easter egg in Slender as well as a running gag. CR most likely wrote this as a result of losing sanity.

    The Letter

    In Prologue, there is a letter addressed to Kate that establishes CR's feelings for her. The fact that the letter is near the trash may suggest her dislike or disapproval of him. This letter also revealed CR's name.
  • It is unknown if CR was friends with Lauren due to a letter saying "Don't tell Lauren what about me." Although he may just be concerned for her safety.
  • CR is the second non-silent protagonist in the game. You hear him talk when you start the Homestead level. He says, "The date is September 19th, my name is CR. On the side of the Matheson family farm, continuing my investigation of Charlie's disappearance. Let's see what we can turn up."
