“THE INMATES ARE RUNNING THE ASYLUM… ALL OVER YOUR TATTERED BODY”
Wonderland Asylum in Olde Apex City had been established nearly a century ago with the grandest of intentions. Heralded as the birthplace of “modern wellness of the mind”, this mental wellness center employed some of the brightest practitioners of its era to cure psychological ailments. As time progressed and funding dried up, Olde Apex City could no longer provide the resources needed to keep this part of the city afloat. As such, this territory was broken away from the greater Apex City and became the start of what eventually would rise to Las Venganzas.
Fast forward to present day, and the asylum still exists but as a shadow of its former self. Rumored to be the site of sadistic experimentation and unorthodox medical procedures, this place now houses some rather unstable individuals not quite suited for a return to functioning society.
Folks like Elsbeth Chaillot. Once a member of Las Venganzas high society, Elsbeth was brought to Wonderland by her cheating husband in an effort to capitalize on her family’s vast fortune. Disavowed by both husband and family, Elsbeth lost all touch of reality, However, in her deluded state, Elsbeth was able to manipulate the weaker minds of the sanitarium into thinking her as the director of the establishment. It was not long before Wonderland was renamed to its current moniker, The Laughing Academy, and Bloody Chaillot became its warden.
The Academy now serves as a blossoming criminal empire, though still contained behind bars. One could only imagine the damage these folks could inflict if they could ever figure out how to open the front door. Until then, directives are given by Chaillot’s right hand woman, Nurse Hatchett, to the outside world to cause mayhem and chaos (or is it chaos and mayhem?)
