Severen Crucifiend Mandibula Mr. Eyeballplucker
Once he was known as Cleetus Rooker, one-half of the sinister "Hopscotch Killers" along with his brother Clem (Nine Lives.) The pair operated near the area where a person can stand in Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico all at once. Eventually the police caught up with them. Clem was arrested, but Cleetus attempted an escape. He tried to hide in a wire-making factory, but a loose step sent him sprawling into a dumpster filled with rusty wire, barbed wire, razor wire... you name it. Cleetus screamed in pain, and figuring that tipped off the authorities, he panicked. His hysterics only tangled him further as he unsuccessfully tried to free himself from the wires. The police found him, a screaming bloodied mass of wound steel and flesh. The AMPUTHEATRE Wardens heard about this and lovingly incarcerated Cleetus under the new name of The Thicket. For all his agony The Thicket holds Nine Lives accountable, and wants to see his brother flayed alive. If it's any consolation, Cleetus Rooker now screams much, much louder than his past victims did. The Thicket is just one of many playable Slashers from Gil Merritt's AMPUTHEATRE
