Ralph Dugan was always more comfortable around things rather than people. He grew up friendless consumed with his scientific experiments - from his crude chemistry sets to the tiny automatons. He built what friends he felt he needed. Ralph graduated high school with a near perfect GPA. More than enough to earn a scholarship to the prestigious Paragon Institute of Technology (PIT).
At PIT, Ralph roomed with Demetrios Vasilikos, better known now as Dr. Vahzilok. Demetrios and Ralph became fast friends. Both found a lot similarities in the other. While Demetrios was interested in healing people, Ralph felt he could make the world safer by building robots for the more dangerous jobs. Both developed a quick rivalry in academics. And in romance. Both wanted to win the heart of a certain young graduate assistant.
Ralph felt he had won the race to Gretchen's heart when he stopped by her apartment for their 6-month anniversary. He found the place in shambles. There was an odor in the air he couldn't place. Instead of doing the smart thing and calling the authorities, Ralph rushed back to his dorm hoping she would be there eaiting for him. Unfortunately, she was not there - neither was Demetrios. Ralph headed to the lab Demetrios was using for his experiments with the university's cadavers and made a startling discovery. Demetrios had dismembered Gretchen and was using her parts in an attempt to create life from death. To create his perfect woman.
Ralph snapped. He lunged at Demetrios knocking over euipment and chemicals. As the two fought, a fire broke out quickly spreading across the room. Both Ralph and Demetrois made their escape, but not before Ralph heard a sound that haunts him to this day, Gretchen's head screaming in pain as the fire consumed everything in the room. When Ralph tried to tell the authorities what happened - noone believed him. Demetrios' family was very well respected. The bodies were burned beyond recognition and there was no way to identify Gretchen among the remains.
Demetrios went on to practice medicine with his father. We all know how that went - Demetrios took the Dr. Vahzilok identity and began pumping out zombies like nobodies' business.
Ralph has all but forsaken humanity. He builds his robots to suit his various needs. He sells his robots to the highest bidder, knowing that they will be used to whittle down the population. He has a deep hatred of zombies. Whether they are science based or the traditional mystical zombies.
Ralph has taken the name Doc Roboto and found a group just crazy enough to let him join, Malice in Wonderland.
