Septian is a playable character in Dead Island: Epidemic.


Septian grew up watching both Crocodile Dundee and The Crocodile Hunter. His interest in animal wildlife, reptiles in particular, led him to living close to and with animals. With the epithet 'Snake Whisperer', he traveled the PNG islands in his quest to whisper with the Papuan black. His trusty snakes 'Paul' and 'Snake' travel with him and together they fight the infected hordes.
— Septian's lore

Septian is a hunter who covers his prey in venom and attacks from up close and from just a machete-throw away.


Septian is a middle aged man with short brown hair tied into a small ponytail. He wears a green and yellow vest with no shirt, green and brown pants shredded at the bottom held by a black and yellow snakeskin belt, and black and white boots. He also wears a snakeskin sling, round glasses, a string necklace, a piece of yellow fabric tied just above his left knee, and black fingerless gloves.
