Dr. Magnus Carlisle used to work for Milton Roupp, conducting experiments in a secret underground lab on imprisoned women. At first, he was dazzled by the unlimited funds and unrestricted search. Eventually, falling in love with one of the test subjects, Dr. Carlisle had a crisis of conscience and revealed the existence of the laboratory to Lorna Roupp, who engineered the escape of the women. Unbeknownst to Lorna Roupp, the woman Mangus loved was pregnant. Dr. Carlisle delivered the baby and raised him as his own, entirely in secret.
