The most renown was my uncle Renfield. He was in the employ of Doctor Frankenstein, before he took his last position with a Count Dracula.
Unlike Uncle Renfield, I do not steal the bodies, to create monsters. I steal a decedent’s legacy through vilification, using slander to get the same results. But hold on, I am not common, like the gossips or rumor mill workers, although I will use their services later.
The old bones I dig up for my creations are verbal. Sometimes I get a piece or a whole of it right. But if I cannot I will take a verbal tibia, fibula or brain that belongs to someone else to construct falsehoods. And when none of those work, I fashion the piece needed. I am pleased to say I am very, very good at that kind of work; it is what I specialize in.
The works suits me well since there no pesky laws to watch out for. The best part is neither my employer nor the people who read my creations will care if I “fashioned” the story. Truth be told some prefer it that way.
Just as with many of my ancestors, my name and work will live on long after the person or the truth has been forgotten.
I am a grave robber but unlike my ancestors, or their monster masters. I am the monster and the master.
Hello I am a defamer of the dead. I steal from the dead and Renfield has nothing on me.
