Little is known about the Horrorsmith except for the monstrosities he unleashs on the world and in particular; St. Sebastian City.
There are some who say that the Horrorsmith is one of the fabeled Ancients; driven mad by immortality. Others say that he's the legendary Igor; faithful servant to Dr. Frankenstien and parleyed what he knew from his master into his own creations. Then others say he was just a brillaint scientist who had the notion he could play God with combining Animal DNA with Human DNA; creating all sorts of monsters and beasts.
Children call him boogeyman. Superheroes call him the enemy.
