she was born to two brilliant but very disturbed parents, both of them doctors and killers, and when she was young, she saw her mother kill her father, and force her into disposing of the body.
Her mother was caught, and she was forever marked with the stigma of her parent's madness and evil deeds, she grew up a doormat, bullied by her peers, abused by her adoptive family, but determined to fight against her legacy and be good and altruistic to everyone, she became "too good for her own good", she decided to become a doctor, not to hurt people, as her parents had, but to make up for their actions by helping them instead.
Thus she threw herself into her studies, her interest in particular was in the nature of evil, and whether it was just the result of some physical or chemical disorder in the brain that could be treated and perhaps even cured.
eventually, she graduated top of her class in medical school, becoming a pioneer in the study of neuropsychology, and her wild theories on criminal neuropsychology in particular became the subject of controversy and interest among all areas of society.
it was not long before she announced her first study, and was given a multitude of subjects for her study, ranging from control groups to the criminally insane (the worst of the worst). one, in particular drew her eye, she was a woman about her age, who bore an uncanny resemblance to herself, and had been convicted of a series of gruesome killings of young girls, but she seemed adamant about her innocence, "i was framed" the patient said, very convincingly, despite warnings from the police that they caught her red handed eating the remains of her victims in her abbotoir-like basement, the doctor and patient quickly became friends.
the doctor thought her to be wrongly convicted, and decided to use her experiments to prove her innocence, but that if she were guilty, the experimental treatment would cure her and allow her to reenter society as if she were innocent, so it was a win-win.
unfortunately, the criminal was indeed a cold-hearted killer, and attempted to force herself upon the doctor (likely a ruse to kill her and use their resemblance to take her place) when given the opportunity, but the doctor subdued her and desperately forced the rest of her treatment upon the convict without taking the proper precautions as a fleeting period of insanity, unfortunately, the doctor killed her patient in the process.
lacking her most promising patient, the star patient she would use as the prime example of the effectiveness of her treatment, was too much for her, so she decided to make do and substitute herself instead.
the treatment she used upon herself did not kill her, instead it was everything she dreamed of, her mental issues all cleared up and she became the example of a good and sane mind. with new confidence she pursued her research and dismissed her critics, her dark side was purged from her mind, and she felt at peace, perfectly socialized.
that was, until the night fell, and she went to sleep, only to wake up refreshed in the morning, and turn on the tv to see the morning news.
apparently, her star patient had broken loose and has killed again, her patient had impersonated her doctor to abduct some prostitutes and then slaughtered and ate them, one body was untouched, except that the head was removed and nowhere to be found.
"but how could this be?" the doctor asked herself, "she's dead, beyond resuscitation, i know it to be true".the horror only intensified when she opened her fridge, where, staring back at her, was the severed head of a girl.
in the washroom, where she had gone to throw up, she saw written on the mirror, in blood, "we need to talk, note under the pillow".
rather than read the note, she went to where she had disposed of the convict's body, only to find that it had seemingly got up and vanished.
