Origin

Conceived as a result of alien abduction and forced impregnation, Horridus spent much of her early life imprisoned in a basement by her extremely religious parents, who were unaware of her alien origins and believed her physical condition was a result of their having had premarital sex. Eventually overwhelmed by the guilt of having produced such a child, the pair committed suicide, leaving their young daughter chained in the basement, where she was discovered by a paper boy. The Chicago police called in the Dragon to rescue the girl, as they were frightened by her appearance.
