Origin

In the late Eighteenth Century, the brilliant medical student Victor Frankenstein sought to create artificial life in a quest to discover the secrets of immortality. Piecing together a human form from various parts of fresh corpses, Frankenstein animated his creation via a charge of lighting.


Afraid of his creation, Frankenstein abandoned the monster leaving it to wander in the forest of Bavaria. Without memory or knowledge the monster lived on its instincts - occasionally approaching humans in a quest for friendship. Understandably people feared the monster and often attacked it, which created within the creature a deep-seeded hatred of all humanity, but in its creator most of all.


Eventually the monster's quest for vengeance upon Dr. Frankenstein lead to the apparent demise of both creator and creature - although in reality the monster became frozen in the wastelands of the Arctic, stranded within a state of suspended animation.


A century later the creature was discovered and freed from its Arctic tomb. Wandering the wilds of Europe, the monster encounter a creature of pure evil, Dracula. Circumstances would once again led to the monster becoming frozen in suspended animation, later reanimated in a time of marvels more strange than Frankenstein's Monster.
