One look at Karl’s face and you will witness the presence of true evil. Behind his crazed eyes lurks utter madness fueled by uncontrollable rage. Karl wasn’t always hell-bent on murder and destruction, though. He was once a son, husband, and father, but never seemed to live up to the standards set before him. As a child, he struggled both academically and socially at school.
Karl was easily one of the dumbest people in his class, even though he put in the time and effort to succeed. Making friends also proved impossible for him; he could never seem to formulate the right words to spark conversation. Karl’s parents had no sympathy for his shortcomings and openly considered him a failure. Unfortunately, his misery did not end once he became an independent adult.
After marrying the first and only woman he ever dated, Karl thought he finally had his life together. He wanted nothing more than to prove himself a valuable husband, but his dead-end construction job couldn’t provide the quality of life his wife craved. After only one short year of marriage, she left Karl for another man – who happened to be his boss. Despised by his own parents and abandoned by the only woman he ever loved, Karl lost it. He began his dark descent into a realm of complete madness.
There is a bright side to this story. In spite of all the hardship Karl endured with his rocky childhood and recent spousal separation, he has finally found something he’s good at: slaughtering his boss, coworkers and anyone else that gets in his way with a massive sledgehammer.
