Sons of the Forest Protagonist Explained

Unfortunately, there is no clear answer on whom the Sons of the Forest protagonist is right now. At the beginning of the game, the character seems to be in a helicopter with a laptop on his lap. If you choose to scroll through the laptop’s contents, you will see the identities of a billionaire family and then a map of the island below. It can be inferred that you are playing as some sort member of a special force or as a highly-trained hired investigator to find the husband, wife, and child.

The protagonist is male and has a tattoo on his wrist that reads “Fight Demons” which has many players thinking that he could be the son, Timmy, from the original game. This identity could also make sense as the game is titled “Sons of the Forest” rather than “The Forest” as its predecessor was.
