"This is Ayo speaking. Get to the nearest Safe Zone and wait until dawn. Good night, and good luck."
Ayo at the end of Extraction.

Ayo (pronounced ah-YO) is a character featured in Dying Light.


Events of Dying Light[]

He is a resident of the Tower and can be found on the 19th floor, sharing an apartment with Kyle Crane among others. He works as a dispatcher for the Tower's runners, maintaining contact with them via a radio in his apartment.

He appears during the main story quest Airdrop, participating in a heated discussion with Jade and Rahim Aldemir, Harris Brecken and Timur over whether or not to turn to crime lord Kadir "Rais" Suleiman for Antizin.

Later, during the main story quest Siblings, Ayo takes over the role of Jade Aldemir in warning the runners that night is approaching and encouraging them to seek shelter.

While searching for Kristov in the quest The Prodigal Son, Crane is directed to Ayo, who reveals Kristov's last known location.

During the main story finale Extraction, Crane confronts Rais atop his skyscraper and the two fight over Zere's research. Once Crane kills Rais and retrieves the data, he informs the GRE that he will not assist them and intends to give the research to Dr. Allen Camden, a scientist working on a cure in Old Town. Following this interaction, Ayo can be heard over the radio warning the runners that night is approaching.

Show: The Prodigal Son

Ayo: "Hey, Crane. Back from the field?"
Crane: "No, not for long - Do you know about a scout named Kristov?"
Ayo: "The new kid. Yeah. He went on a recon mission, but I haven't heard from him in a while. Rahim checked him out and said he was solid, but I'm not so sure."
Crane: "One reckless kid certifying another."
Ayo: "That's what Brecken said. Of course, it could just be his radio. Some of the batteries are running down, so we're not getting much range out of them."
Crane: "Where was he headed?"
Ayo: "Out towards that newly constructed skyscraper."
Crane: "I'd better go have look."
Ayo: "Watch yourself out there, alright?"


  • "Ayo speaking. Just wanted to remind you not to be playing heroes in the dark. Get back here or find a Safe Zone. You've got one hour." – Night is approaching in Siblings
  • "Copy. Alright, that's it, there's nothing more you can do." – During "The Prodigal Son"
  • "Yeah, well, Rais can throw a lot more bodies at them than we can." – During "The Prodigal Son"
  • "No, negative. Cut your losses and get out of there. Copy. Out." – During "The Prodigal Son"


  • Prior to the release of the Enhanced Edition, when playing the Be The Zombie multiplayer mode, Ayo would warn the player(s) of the Night Hunter's approach. He no longer assumes this role.
  • At the end of Extraction, he can be heard saying "Good night and good luck." This also serves as the tagline for Dying Light.
