Algernon Rottwell was a twisted man from a very young age. He went from trying to creating zombies out of dead cats, to becoming a psychopathic murderer. This led him to the Dunwich Sanatorium, an asylum for the insane where it was that the doctors diagnosed him as "incurable." Soon after, Rottwell caused a riot, and used the ensuing chaos as a cover to take control of Dunwich. Many of the doctors and nurses were killed during the riot, and so Rottwell had some of the patients become the new staff, leaving him unopposed to stand as Doctor Rottwell. However, he soon earned the nickname, "Doctor Rot."
