Howard Morton was the husband of Lucy Morton and was the father of Obed Morton and Alan Morton. He was also the son of Jeremy Morton.


The proof of one of Shadow Island’s more repulsive legends was never available until now. According to local folklore, a venerable member of the Morton family, driven insane by the entities he and his brethren experimented on and unleashed into the world, was subdued and caged by his own family, then drugged and moved to a secret location somewhere below the island’s ancient Fort. When the narcotics began to wear off, he was fed scraps of raw meat, allowed to wallow in his own private Hell of festering wounds, then appears to have been experimented on by his own offspring!

The Morton family’s dabbling in the shadows of their own gene pool created a veritable demon—a possessed former- human that exhibits immense strength and continuous violent delirium. Now this human shell hosts a being of pure evil. The last remnant of sanity remaining in this Morton’s brain is the desire for revenge. Proving too violent to keep locked away, this hideous creation was restrained, doped, placed in a 10-foot high vat of formaldehyde, and sentenced to eternal sleep in a secret compartment hidden in the mansion. Woe to anyone foolish enough to wake this particularly degenerative strain of Morton….

Differently by several members of Morton Family, Howard strongly feared the World of the Darkness, and didi his best to let Shadow Island and begin a normal life, even discouraging or scolding his children, specially Alan, to acting against his will. Ultimately, Alan killed his father, experimented on him until Howard became one of his monstrous creations, and then encased in a statis pod under the floor of the library. He was unintentianally freed by Aline Cedric after obtaining the medallion half. Aline put him down on the spot and proceeded back to Lucy Morton for information about the medallion half. Howard quickly revived and continued stalking Aline and was heard roaring as she was leaving the Manor. He found her outside the Greenhouse and smashed through the window and chases her through the cemetery. After losing him in the crypt, he isn't seen again until Aline returns to the fort after exchanging items with Carnby at the Gate. He engages in battle with her for the last time at the top of the fort where he is struck by lightning and finally dies.
