Biography[edit | edit source]

This unnamed man appeared to be in his mid-thirties, with dark hair, eyeglasses and a suit. Julia Cotton seduced him and invited him over to her home at 55 Hillcrest. What the man could have never suspected was that he was being lured to the house as prey for Julia's lover, Frank Cotton. Frank, having only recently returned from the dead, needed blood in order to fully reconstitute his physical form.

Arriving at the house, Julia beckoned the man up the stairs. He meekly explained to her how he sometimes gets lonely, as if to justify his reason for accompanying her. Julia reassured him and led him to the third floor bedroom where Frank Cotton was waiting. Upon seeing the skinless Frank, the man exclaimed "Jesus Christ!", at which point Julia hit him across the back of the head with the claw end of a hammer. As she begged for his life, Frank lunged at him, pushing his fingers through the back of his neck and bludgeoning him against the wall until he was dead. [1]
