  • Complete Monster: Rudolph "Rudy" Shelton is the ruler of the streets of Toronto. A monstrous gangster, Rudy is a devotee of the loa who misuses the power to keep himself young and strong. After his wife Gros-Jeanne left him due to his abusive tendencies, Rudy murdered her lover Dunston and enslaved his soul, imprisoning it in pain and torment. Rudy keeps others as living zombies, wearing them out and replacing them, even flaying one alive as she is completely conscious to prove a point to his posse member Tony who he sends to obtain a heart for a transplant of the province's premier. Rudy is revealed to have turned his own daughter into a malevolent spirit known as a duppy which murders others and enslaves souls to keep Rudy strong, feeding it with the sacrifice of children. After he discovers heroine Ti-Jeanne is his granddaughter, Rudy attempts to carve her soul apart to make a new duppy, treating his atrocities with savage glee mixed with indifference to any life besides his own.
