This is the information on the Black Zodiac from Thir13en Ghosts.
1.The First Born Son
The First Born Son is the ghost of Billy Michaels, a boy who had a thing for
cowboy films. One day, a neighbor found a real steel arrow in his parents' closet. He
challenged Billy to a duel, with Billy using a toy gun. However his toy gun was no
match for the Arrow which the neighbor used to kill Billy by shooting it to the back
of his head. In death, Billy is in his cowboy suit with an arrow impaled in his head.
Billy is holding an axe.
2. The Torso
The Torso is the ghost of a gambler called Jimmy "The Gambler" Gambino. Losing
everything in a boxing match to Larry "The Finger" Vatello, he tried to welch on his
bet and escape. The mob and Larry, to whom he owed money, caught up with Gambino and
cut him into several pieces, wrapping them in cellophane and dumping the corpse into
the ocean. His ghost is just his torso, trying to walk around on its hands, while his
head lies nearby screaming within the cellophane.
3.The Bound Woman
The Bound Woman was a cheerleader named Susan LeGrow, who was born into a rich
family and had a penchant for seducing men and tossing them away. After cheating on
her boyfriend preceding a high school prom, she was strangled by him, and later found
buried on the football field on the 50 yard line. After being arrested, the boyfriend
was quoted as saying, "The bitch broke my heart, so I broke her neck." Her ghost is
in her prom dress, hanging suspended by the strangling impliments.
4.The Withered Lover
The Withered Lover is Jean Kriticos, the wife of Arthur. She tried to save her
children in the house fire that changed her family's lives, and though successful,
she was burned severely. She was hospitalised, and died in the hospital from her
wounds. Her ghost is still in a hospital gown, carting an IV and showing fire wounds
on her face. Unlike the other ghosts, she is not a vengeful spirit, electing to help
her family rather than show malevolence.
5.The Torn Prince
The Torn Prince is the ghost of Royce Clayton, who was a gifted baseball star,
albeit with attitude issues and a superiority complex. He challenged a greaser to a
drag race and was killed when he lost control and crashed. His ghost carries a
baseball bat, and half of his body is torn up by glass wounds.
6.The Angry Princess
The Angry Princess is Dana Newman, who despite being naturally beautiful,
constantly believed she was ugly. This mentality was further fueled by a string of
abusive boyfriends. Her money was constantly spent at a cosmetic surgery clinic,
accepting numerous cosmetic surgeries on herself for various ailments and
malformations that only she could see. It even got to the point where she had her own
private plastic surgeon on call 24/7. One night, in an attempt to fix some unseen
blemish, she attempted plastic surgery on herself. She failed horribly, blinding
herself in one eye and permanently mutilating herself beyond saving. In despair, she
crawled into a bath and sliced herself all over her body with a butcher knife until
she bled to death. When she was found, they said that she was as beautiful in death
as she was in life. Her ghost still has the butcher knife she killed herself
The Pilgrimess is the ghost of Isabella Smith, an English woman who traveled
across the Atlantic and settled in New England. She was a separatist, and this
isolated her from the other townsfolk. She was found guilty of witchcraft, and
sentenced to the stocks (pillory) with no food or drink until she died. As a ghost,
she is still locked into her stocks.
8.The Great Child
Harold was spoiled by his mother, keeping his childlike brain as he grew older.
She raised him to be her protector and to exact revenge on the other members of the
carnival who kidnapped her as a joke. When he caught up with the culprits he found
that his mother had accidentally suffocated to death in the bag that she was kept in.
Harold, in a rage, took an axe and killed all the circus freaks, who murdered her.
Later, when the owner of the carnival found out what Harold had done he ordered a mob
of people to tear Harold apart. Their ghosts are always together, and Harold still
wields the axe.
9.The Dire Mother
The Dire Mother is the ghost of Margaret Shelburne, who was an attraction in a
carnival due to her being only three feet tall. She was raped by the "Tall Man,"
another carnival freak, and bore a child, Harold, who eventually weighed over 300
pounds (136 kg).
The Hammer is the ghost of a blacksmith, George Markley, who lived in a small town
in the 1890s. He was threatened to be driven out of town after wrongfully being
accused of stealing by a man named Nathan. Knowing he was innocent, he refused to
leave and stayed in town. One day, George's wife and kids were on their way home from
the market when Nathan and some of his friends attacked and brutally murdered them.
Enraged, George tracked down the people responsible for killing his wife and kids and
hammered them to death. The other townsfolk captured him, and they drove railroad
spikes into his body until he died. They also cut off his hand, replacing it with the
head of his sledgehammer, which remains with his ghost and makes him very
The Jackal is Ryan Kuhn, a self-admitted mental patient during the early 20th
century with a penchant for attacking women. The doctors at the hospital did little
to treat his mental condition and simply locked him in a padded room. After years of
imprisonment, he went completely insane and scratched at the walls so violently that
his fingernails were ripped completely off. The doctors permanently put him in a
straitjacket, and when he chewed the straightjacket and escaped, the doctors had a
metal cage locked around his head. After years of this, he grew deformed and reviled
human contact. He was the only victim of a fire that broke out in the asylum; he
chose to stay behind and meet, what he believed, to be his deserved fate. As a ghost,
his arms are free from his jacket, and there is a hole chewed in the front of his
cage, showing that he may have escaped his bindings again sometime before the
The Juggernaut was a serial killer named Horace "Breaker" Mahoney. Standing at
seven feet tall, he towed broken-down motorists to his junkyard where he murdered
them, tearing them apart with his bare hands and feeding them to his dogs. Being
impossible to take on in close combat, his pursuers opted for the safer method, and
brought him down in a hail of bullets from all sorts of guns. When he finally went
down, they shot an extra clip into him, just to be safe. His ghost still shows bullet
holes all over his clothing, and the wound that finished him.
