Origins:
 
Harry Osborn was the son of wealthy industrialist Norman Osborn, and often felt like he let his father down. He however graduated high school and then enrolled in Empire State University with his friend Gwen Stacy. Harry eventually became best friends with fellow student Peter Parker (Spider-Man).
After the death of his father Norman Osborn (The Green Goblin), during a battle with Spider-Man and the discovery of the real identity of Spider-Man, Harry Osborn became totally mad. He decided to follow in the footsteps of his father and become the new Green Goblin, eventually seeming to die from the effects of the Goblin formula. Harry wasn't dead in fact, having his death faked, he went to Europe to study and get his life back in order. He returned to New York after some years and once again became embroiled in a number of his father's megalomaniacal scheme's.
In unrevealed circumstances Harry appeared to become a demonic entity that called himself Kindred, Harry secluded himself in the Osborn family cemetery, from where he began plotting against Peter, consumed by the belief that he had to repent for his sins and the misery he brought on his loved ones. Slowly pulling the strings of Peter's life, Kindred only presented himself to Peter in nebulous nightmares to further his torment, leaving him with the uneasy sensation that somebody was lurking.
