The words induced me to turn towards myself. I learned that the possessions most esteemed by your fellow creatures were high and unsullied descent united with riches. A man might be respected with only one of these advantages, but without either he was considered, except in very rare instances, as a vagabond and a slave, doomed to waste his powers for the profits of the chosen few! And what was I? Of my creation and creator I was absolutely ignorant, but I knew that I possessed no money, no friends, no kind of property. I was, besides, endued with a figure hideously deformed and loathsome; I was not even of the same nature as man. I was more agile than they and could subsist upon coarser diet; I bore the extremes of heat and cold with less injury to my frame; my stature far exceeded theirs. When I looked around I saw and heard of none like me. Was I, then, a monster, a blot upon the earth, from which all men fled and whom all men disowned?

History Edit

Victor Frankenstein built the creature in the attic of his boarding house through an ambiguously described scientific method consisting of chemistry (from his time as a student at University of Ingolstadt) and alchemy (largely based on the writings of Paracelsus, Albertus Magnus, and Cornelius Agrippa). Frankenstein was disgusted by his creation, however, and fled from it in horror. Frightened, and unaware of his own identity, the monster wandered through the wilderness.

He found brief solace beside a remote cottage inhabited by a family of peasants. Eavesdropping, the creature familiarized himself with their lives and learns to speak, whereby he becomed eloquent, educated, and well-mannered. The creature eventually introduced himself to the family's blind father, who treated him with kindness. When the rest of the family returned, however, they were frightened of him and drove him away. Hopeful but bewildered, the creature rescued a peasant girl from a river but was shot in the shoulder by a man who claimed her. He found Frankenstein's journal in the pocket of the jacket he found in the laboratory, and swore revenge on his creator for leaving him alone in a world that hated him.

The monster killed Victor's younger brother William upon learning of the boy's relation to his hated creator. When Frankenstein retreated to the mountains, the monster approached him at the summit and asked his creator to build him a female mate. In return, he promised to disappear with his mate and never trouble humankind again; the monster then threatened to destroy everything Frankenstein held dear should he fail. Frankenstein agreed and built a female creature, but, aghast at the possibility of creating a race of monsters, destroyed his experiment. In response, the infuriated monster killed Frankenstein's best friend Henry Clerval, and later killed Frankenstein's bride Elizabeth Lavenza on their wedding night; whereupon Frankenstein's father died of grief.

A vengeful Frankenstein dedicated himself to destroying his creation. Searching for the monster in the Arctic Circle, Frankenstein fell into the freezing water, contracting severe pneumonia. A ship exploring the region encountered the dying scientist, who related his story to the ship's captain, Robert Walton. Later, the monster boarded the ship; but, upon finding Frankenstein dead, was overcome by grief and pledged to incinerate himself at "the Northernmost extremity of the globe". He then departed, never to be seen again.
