American Horror Story Freak Show: Mordrake's Letter
Direct From The Set
Mordrake was a noble heir who lived in the 1800s. He had one normal face on the front of his head and a smaller one on the back. The small face couldn't eat or talk, but according to 19th century English myth, it whispered terrible things to Mordrake at night while he was trying to sleep. He begged doctors to remove it, but none would take on such a dangerous procedure. Supposedly, Mordrake's evil second face drove him to insanity, and he killed himself at 23 years old.
