- "To stand among us, you must prove you are worthy."
- — Koritoia Ope
The Hero encounters him during the quest "Man of Faith," where he tells the Hero to enter the Circle of Spirits and survive. Once the Hero has passed the test, he allows for his tribes blood to be sampled.
During the quest "Pure Blood," Koritoia leads the Hero to his tribe's burial ground, where they mummify their deceased. There they come across the body of Yerema, and Koritoia claims that she is a "bad spirit." After poking her, she wakes up, and Koritoia attempts to kill her by beating her to death with his staff. However, Purna shoots him in the lower back, killing him.
- He, along with the other natives, has a tendency to call the Undead, "Immortals."
- His weapon of choice is a decorated club.
- Yerema makes the claim that he was her father, during the journey she and the hero have back to the boat.
- After the release of Ryder White's Campaign, it is revealed that Ope could have prevented the spread of the outbreak off of the island, if it had not been for his untimely death at the hands of the Heroes, as he had intended to kill his daughter, who is a carrier for the disease.
- The irony of the above is that it is stated by Yerema, and confirmed by the official novelisation, that Ope is responsible for unleashing the plague on the island in the first place, as he was the one who ordered the religious cannibalism that spread the disease amongst his tribe, who went on to change and begin infecting others.
- In the game, where the zombies whose brains were eaten by Ope's tribesmen came from is never mentioned. In the novelisation, it is stated that they were tribesmen who had ritually beaten and raped Yerema on Ope's orders when his "demon-possessed" daughter had returned from the city to try and make peace with him.
- It is unclear if Ope truly is such a religious fanatic that he worships the "Immortals", as he seems to from his various rambling, or if he has sunken into denial and is trying to ignore the horrors his "holy acts" have unleashed.
