Elias was born on a farm in Kansas in 1839 who hated the farm life since there was so many things wrong with it, such as tornadoes, infectious bugs, diseases, and countless others. Aside from that, he never liked anything, and thus became anti-social, never caring about any material possessions including money. He possessed harsh and cynical views on the world around him and always believed that no matter what happened, society was still a ruined mess every day.
However, his only real values was his best cow Betsy and his prized golden-egg-laying goose. But because this value could attract attention from undesirables who routinely harassed him for the goose for obvious reasons, the worst he did was threaten to alert authorities. It deterred many undesirables, but there was a greedy marketing tycoon who was too determined to let a typical threat of enforcers deter him. So he had his goons murder Betsy as a warning to make him more 'welcoming' to people like him and kidnapped his goose. However, instead of alerting authorities of the crime, he only went into a rage, grabbed his scythe, and pinned down the location of his goose's kidnappers thanks to the questionable choice of advertising the goose at the market plaza.
Upon discovering the place, However, when he realized that tje advertising lead other greedy people to come after the goose, he ended up killing any who were blind to his pain and came after it. He caused what was known as the Great Goose Massacre and earned him an infamous reputation. It deterred criminals permanently, but he gained a new problem with the law. While Elias explained why he did it, it wasn't a good excuse for the many kills he committed trying to protect his goose. Thus, the judge sentenced him to death by hanging.
Following his death, he became the prejudicial wraith known as Horrorshow. He began haunting his own country for years thanks to their actions on him until 1975 when paranormal experts threatened to destroy him, forcing him to retreat to Spookavania where he would attempt to start a monster revolution. He even managed to gain the friendship of Craig Vesling, a human who was raised on Spookavania, and Horrorshow attempted to mold him into a pawn with their friendship. Of course, Craig had a lot of problems with meeting his own kind when they kept saying that monsters were not to be trusted. He didn't want to believe it, so Horrorshow, not wanting to wait any longer, told him the truth about his plans, and ended up murdering several normal people just to corrupt Craig onto his side.
But Horrorshow was unable to corrupt Craig, and Craig believed that all his kind had said was true, and vowed to become a monster hunter to destroy people like Horrorshow. He escaped, and when word leaked out that Craig had been turned against them, Count Vladula had Horrorshow arrested for his crimes. But unfortunately, he escaped because incompetent police monsters sent him to a prison not properly prepared to keep ghosts imprisoned and he simply phased out like nothing. He would soon get his chance to destroy normal people for wronging his kind.
