Edward Mordrake was a man who lived in the 19th century. History books detail Mordrake’s life status as a nobleman, a urbane man of English descent. Unlike many of his fellows, Mordrake was also renown for one genetic anomaly, located on the back of his head: an extra face.
Historical accounts of Mordrake’s life reveal the face could not speak or eat, but it could laugh and it could cry.
Mordrake grew weary of the face. He begged doctors to remove his ‘devil twin’, citing that during the still hours of the night, the face would whisper terrible things to him.
Doctors at the time were terrified and dared not touch the face, let alone attempt to remove it in surgery. Records show that Mordrake ended his life in his early twenties because he could no longer stand the torments from the face on the back of his head.
