According to the police reports and files found in the game, Maxwell was formerly a man who was a robber. His mannequin suit was a disguise to infiltrate the stores undetected. His suit was equipped with eye filters that allowed him to see in the dark. The hinges that allowed the suit to move are also very noisy and squeaking. He was eventually gunned down while he attempted to escape from police during a botched robbery. His costume was stored as evidence. According to files "The suit is very scary, very lifelike and has an awful smell.".
Maxwell is a very tall mannequin wearing a black tuxedo. His face and head have black markings in several places. These are either bullet holes or is dirt or dust from being stored away for a considerable amount of time.
Max first becomes active in area 2. He can be found in the warehouse with Kiki. The player must locate the Flashlight here, and use it to scare him off. Max can only be active in the dark thus can be very difficult when the power box to the building is disabled in area 4.
- If Max is chasing the player, his head will twitch to the left. It is unknown as to why this occurs.
- While Max moves throughout the Level 2 area, squeaking and clicking from his hinges can be heard. They get louder or quieter depending if he is close to the player or not.
- A sentence on Max's examination report states "Being in the dark with this thing would be terrifying." This is a hint to the player to avoid Max while in the dark.
- His character model has a slight resemblance to the popular horror character 'Slender Man'. He also vaguely resembles another video game character, 'Agent 47' from the Hitman series.
