History: Seeking to emulate the fictional accounts of Frankenstein's experiments in reanimating dead matter, Dr. Spenser Schwartz stitched together a monstrous body made out of corpse parts. Needing the brain from somone very recently deceased, Schwartz hired thugs to go out and murder a victim at random. The unlucky subject chosen was Jason Boswell, heading home at 4am on the morning of his wedding day after an indiscretion with a woman who had attended his bachelor party. Beaten to death, Jason awoke to find his brain had been transplanted into Schwartz's monster, and went berserk, slaying the doctor and his nurse. Without working vocal chords, and forever trapped in a hideous, unfeeling body, Boswell left behind his old life, eventually befriending Kuzzo, an equally misshapen hunchbacked dwarf circus performer.
