Biography[edit | edit source]

Doctor Seaton was a teacher and a child psychiatrist operating out of the city of Chicago, Illinois. In 1988, a young, troubled girl named Carol Anne Freeling was admitted into his care. Seaton believed that Carol Anne was a deeply delusional child and did not believe that she had experienced any previous encounters with the paranormal as he had been told. When The Beast known as Henry Kane came to this world to reclaim Carol Anne, he created mirror doppelgängers of people that Carol Anne knew and sent them to attack her. One of these duplicates took the form of a woman named Donna Gardner who pushed Doctor Seaton down an elevator shaft in a high-rise apartment building. [1]
