(Haunt of Horror#2/6 (fb) - BTS) - Corbett in anticipation of being drafted into the military, entered the ROTC so he might be an officer from the start. As such, he served in a military action in Vietnam.
(Haunt of Horror#2/6) - Now living in LA,
Corbett was targeted by his apartment neighbor Satana as the
vessel with which she would slay one of her enemies, Miles
Gorney, whom she believed to be the leader of the human agents of
the Four. She knocked on Corbett's door and swiftly seduced him.
She then convinced him to kill Miles Gorney, telling him only
that Gorney was the president of Consolidated Electronics. Though
initially taken aback, Corbett agreed to her "request."
Not long after, Corbett brought his M-16 to the roof opposite Gorney's office building. As soon as Gorney got out of his car, Corbett fired, shooting Gorney dead. Too late, Satana realized that she had been tricked by the Four, and that by having Gorney killed, she had completed the human sacrifice necessary to grant the power to close the portal through which Satana could return to Hell. She rushed to stop Corbett, but the dead was done. Furious, Satana grabbed Corbett and kissed him, draining his life force until his desiccated corpse lay on the rooftop.

dates, such as 1965, are topical. If you disagree, please don't
