General Description: A brilliant scientist and a genius physician. Discovered a way to bring back one’s youth by replacing the aging blood of his patients with the blood of young women. Always in need of money to continue his scientific pursuits, Dr. Arrowsmith married Muriel Hampton in order to acquire her fortune. Soon after he discovered that his wife was unfaithful, he brutally murdered her and her lover. He used Muriel’s blood to rejuvenate his aging lover and associate Solangé, but kept the hearts of the two lovers in a tank of formaldehyde. After burning whatever was left of Muriel’s body he used the ashes as a potting soil for his favorite plant.
In order to secure his financial independence Stephen married Muriel’s step-sister Jenny, planning to drive her insane or simply to kill her, which would make him the sole heir to the Hampton fortune. But his villainous plans were ruined when the ghosts of Muriel and her lover returned to seek vengeance for their untimely deaths.
