ok so I apologize in advance if I accidentally infodump, but here’s some of the basic lore: (cw for horror (obviously), talk of dead kids, murder)

Starting off easy with the afton family, William Afton is the father of the three kids, with Michael Afton being the oldest sibling, and Crying Child (canon name unknown) and Elizabeth Afton being younger (whichever is younger is unknown but isn’t really important), and Clara Afton being the mother (widely accepted fanon name but not canon)

William killed 5 children by luring into the employees only room by getting in the spring Bonnie suit, stuffed them inside the animatronic suits you see in the first game, and the spirits of the dead kids start possessing them. You play as Michael in the first game, so they mistake you for William and try to get to you.
In the second game, you play as a different security guard (Jeremy Fitzgerald I think? I might be wrong though), the toy animatronics have an ai so they can recognize criminals, but William messed with it, so they now act aggressive towards any adults, which is why they try to get to you, and it also led to the bite or 87 (yes that bite of 87) where one of the previous night guards had his head bitten by mangle and presumably died

In fnaf three, you play as Michael Afton again, 30 years after William was springlocked. This takes a bit of explaining, but I’ll try,,, so springlocks are the mechanics of the older suits that compress the endoskeletons, and you activate them by turning a bunch of cranks in the suit, which makes room in the suit to climb in (or stuff dead children in), but these cranks come undone extremely easily, especially with moisture, which causes the endoskeleton to like stab you and cause almost certain death. It’s revealed in a mini game that William was coming back to disassemble the animatronics when the souls of the children escaped from them and starting chasing him, so naturally he got the shit scared out of him and ran into the back room, and eventually hid in the old spring Bonnie suit. However, the restaurant was in disrepair and because of the water dripping from the ceiling, the springboks came undone and semi-killed him.
its 4:30 am when I’m typing this so I’m definitely getting some stuff wrong but I’ll finish this tomorrow because I probably sound stupid and need slee

a fairly important bit to make sense of it all is that the second game is set BEFORE the first one <3
