Doctor Herbert Halsey
My colleagues and I are gathering the deadliest substances we know and testing their effects on our enemies. Once I have everything I need, I shall brew such plagues as this world has never seen.
Herbert Halsey's name is a reference to two key characters: Herbert West and Dr. Halsey, from the pulp horror novel 'Herbert West -- Reanimator' by H. P. Lovecraft. In the book Herbert West creates an alchemical substance that can reanimate dead tissue. Dr. Halsey is the dean of the Miskatonic University Medical School, West's principal opponent in his reanimation research.
