The Sinister Snowman was supposedly the ghost of an elderly man by the name of Vladimar Harsticore. Vladimar was a mean man who watched with hatred as the city around him grew. He hated people and wanted only to be left alone. It was then that a toy store was built right close to his house, which had a beautiful clock tower. It drove him into madness, to where the legend said he became pure hate, vanishing in a flurry of snow and bitterness, to form a snowman with a sinister and evil soul. It was then that he mysteriously vanished, and the giant clock tower stopped working. Now he had returned to finish what he should had done 20 years ago. But it all ended when the Sinister Snowman was revealed to be Fabian Menkle, who was robbing his uncle's toy store and tried to make him look crazy so he could shut the store down and get the money, blaming it on the legend of Vladimar Harsticore, who actually "vanished" to Miami.
