OriginsEdit

Harry Houdini is the most famous magician in history; he is best remembered for his escape acts. He branched out into escaping handcuffs, chains, ropes and straightjackets, including acts where he was submerged underwater or hung upside down from a building. He has escaped trickier, including holding his breath in a sealed milk can, burying himself out from a mound of dirt, escaping a Siberian prison van and whatever else he was challenged with. When escaping handcuffs, he usually would be stripped clean to make sure he had no lockpicks on him. He owed many of his handcuff and straightjacket escapes to hidden lockpicks and his flexibility.

He did acting and piloted in Australia for a while. After that, he turned to debunking fake spiritualists and their séances. His death happened when a man asked if Houdini was strong enough to take punches, which Houdini allowed. The man suddenly struck Houdini, which did enough damage to burst his appendix and kill him. After his death, most of Houdini’s props and personal effects went to his brother Theo with the condition being all of them were destroyed. His brother didn’t listen, and he sold most of the objects

EffectsEdit
