OriginEdit

Edward Mordake, said to be heir to an English peerage, had an extra face on the back of his head. The duplicate face could neither eat nor speak out loud but was said to "smile while Mordake was happy" and "sneer while Mordake was weeping". Mordake repeatedly begged doctors to have his "demon face" removed, claiming that it whispered things that "one would only speak about in hell" at night, but no doctor would attempt it. He committed suicide in his mid-20s.

EffectsEdit

This piece of skin resembles an incomplete human face. It is said that even though the man the face belonged is long since dead, it still whispers. The face has a life and intelligence all its own. The face is said to "Attach" itself to others on a telepathic level and whisper horrifying things to that person. If the connection is left on too long, the person the face attached itself to will commit suicide. The last person the face attached itself to before coming to the Warehouse was singer/songwriter Tom Waits who used his experience with the face to inspire himself to write "Poor Edward."
