Albert Hannibal Morloch is a director famed as much for his mastery of suspense as he is for his psychotic tendencies when directing, and also when not directing. He is personally responsible for the nervous breakdowns of over two hundred individuals in the film industry, and possibly responsible for a similar number of unsolved murders. Although he professes to be human, abnormal gaps in his official record have led the Hollywood authorities to classify him as a cryptid.
Not much is known about Morloch's history before his arrival in Hollywood around 85 BBO, except for what he himself has chosen to reveal through various interviews, biographies, and ominous threats. According to Morloch, he was born "elsewhere" before coming to Hollywood due to "unpleasantness" in his formative years.
