Disney Vs Non Disney Villains - Part Two
You may have heard the story of William Vogel. Vogel's life was relatively ordinary for the first few years of his life in a small home he shared with his family in Germany. Eventually, they began to fall on hard times after his father lost his job. William, desperate to keep his family alive, learned to play the guitar and played it on the side of the road for money, eventually getting so good that he decided that after his family was financially sound, he promised himself he'd go become a star. At the age of 18,when his family was back to being financially sound, he kept his promise to himself and moved to England.
There, he became a record breaking hit with his single "Life's Hard When You're a Poor Boy". He eventually became accustomed to the life of a rock singer, and settled down in a huge mansion with a girl he met named Harleen. But somehow, even though he knew he should be happy, something seemed like it wasn't right.
Eventually, England began to go to war with Russia, and there was a short supply of soldiers on hand, and eventually, William found himself drafted into the conflict, not even having a chance to write a protest song. The young man, who by then was 22, had very minimal time to be trained in combat, however, something seemed very strange about the weapon he was given, it was an ordinary-looking sword, but it somehow whispered in an ominous voice to William '...This is what you were born for, for the thrill of the fight. May the god of war grant you luck in battle...'
And luck it gave him. William became infamous in battle for somehow managing not only to kill a large amount of people with a mere sword in a time when guns were more commonly used, but also nearly single-handedly winning the battles. Those who had seen him noted he had a 'blank, almost as if he was possesed' look in his eye. His supposed prowess in battle earned him the respect of his fellow soldiers, who granted him the nickname, "Kill em William". However, a unnamed Colonel who was in the same squad knew the only reason he was capable of killing even ONE soldier was due to the sword forged by Ares himself, which somehow gave him the strength of 10 men. However, the Colonel was written off as a 'Crazy, Jealous, Asshole'.
On one night, the entire squad was attacked by a particularly large army of soldiers led by a man named Adam Adrian. William lept into battle, even with his comrades dying left and right from the assault they were not prepared for, he fought valiantly and managed to kill off a good numbe of the enemy soldiers- Until he was shot twice. Once in the arm to make him drop his sword, and once in the spine. The Colonel then approached him and informed him that it was he who sold out the location of the squad out of jealousy. Adrian then took out a hunting knife and began cutting William's body parts off. Halfway through, William began laughing insanely, laughter that haunted Adrian until his death. Eventually, Vogel was decapitated and his body and head dumped in a hole. Adam immediately left the area and went back to Russia, changing his name to Lyle Rourke. The Colonel was later exposed to have engineered the entire assault on the squad, and was tried and executed for treason.
On the day of his death, Vogel was posthumously awarded the highest medal the military can give. In June 2013, an older person claimed to have seen his ghost wandering around, looking for his head...
Samhain attacks the underworld wishing to create chaos in the underworld by unleashing the many souls of the dead. This brings him into conflict with Hades. Unable to defeat the spirit, Hades summons a ghost of his own, the Headless Horseman, from he rier Styx. The Horseman attacks Samhain relentlessly, chasing him throughout the underworld. Finally, the demon Horseman forces his fellow ghost to retreat, as he summons a flaming pumpin and hurls it at Samhain. Victorious, he then dissappears, and has not been seen since.
