Victor Frankenstein was a scientist who gave life to Frankenstein's monster by using body parts of human corpses. Although the creature was confused and innocent, Victor was horrified by his own creation and immediately abandoned him. The monster gradually adapted to the world around him and learned how to speak, but was frequently the victim of human prejudice due to his monstrous appearance. Desperate for companionship, he eventually sought out his creator and requested that he make him a mate. Victor complied, but destroyed his second creation before bringing her to life. As revenge, the creature murdered Victor's bride on their wedding night.The monster lured his creation to the Arctic Circle where he planned to kill him. However, when he found him on a frozen schooner, Victor was already dead.
