The Real Story Of Edward Mordrake, The Man With Two Faces

The urban legend of Edward Mordrake says that he was a nobleman, an heir to the English peerage who lived in the 19th century. According to the legend, he was a fine gentleman and very talented, but with a horrifying disfigurement at the back of his head. 

It was a face looking devilish, a face that would only bring him nightmares. The face was that of a woman who drooled but could not see or eat. It laughed and sneered whenever he was sad and cried whenever he was happy. 

Mordrake kept saying that the other face would not let him sleep at night, for it whispered terrible things to him. He would beg doctors to perform surgery and to pluck out the other face, but no doctor would ever do it.
