UBH's most heinous villain
"Have you ever read his papers?" I asked. Cian shook his head. "No. No way. But I guess you would have had to." "Yeah. And let me tell you what. He was vile. The humans he experimented on? Some were found with their skin turned inside out or with three or four arms sewn on. He was trying to turn them to witches, but I find that as a witch, I like my skin the right side out, personally." "I've always found that preferable as well," Cian agreed. "But why turn human into witches?" I shrugged. "No idea. He was a few crows short of a murder, if you know what I mean." Before Cian could even say anything, I smirked. "I love a good pun." "So do I," Cian said dryly. "When I hear one." I frowned but refrained from magicking Cian; after all, he was a useful resource.
Kasper Gray was an extremely powerful witch known for his extensive work on Dark Magic. He authored the most famous book on Dark Magic, the Gray Book, as well as created many Dark Magic objects capable of causing either death or great pain. He was also the founder of a Murder of Crows. Charismatic, charming, and attractive, no one around Kasper suspected his dastardly deeds. He was quite a prestigious Librarian and often lectured at the Athenaeum. However, he is most perhaps most famous for what was found after he died. After a search of his house, human bodies were found piled in his attic. By the research he left behind, it became clear that he had been experimenting on humans to see if he could change them into witches. (For reasons unknown; his dislike for humans was well-known.)
Accomplishments & Achievements
Failures & Embarrassments
Perhaps his most gruesome failure (and most witches will agree that they are glad it was a failure) was his experimentations on humans in order to turn them to witches. After Kasper's demise, several Council members discovered the remains of the humans and many were shaken to the core at their discovery.
Oh, what a ghastly, grisly discovery! I can scarcely relay what I saw, but I must. When we walked into his attic, we found the remains of at least two dozen humans. The stench was most unbearable. That would have been horrifying enough! However, the evil man had performed gruesome experiments, and the humans were in all sorts of appalling states. There were those that had no limbs at all, and some with too many. Some had been flayed alive and had their skin turned inside out or attached to others. Jars of eyeballs and teeth were scattered across the room, and perhaps the most odious element of it all was the floor was still quite slick with blood. --Recollections of a Council member from 1832
About three months before Kasper's death, he began to experience signs of psychosis. Later, it was suggested the psychosis was the result of practicing Dark Magic.
Morality & Philosophy
Kasper's morality was crooked; he believed only in himself and did things only for himself. Kasper was not afraid to sacrifice others to achieve his goals.
