This story is inspired by a merger of two of the ‘Untold Lives’ blog posts. Firstly, one about Victorian prosthetics. The weapons used in this era meant that limbs would often be shattered in such a way that amputation was the only answer.

Firstly, one about Victorian prosthetics. The weapons used in this era meant that limbs would often be shattered in such a way that amputation was the only answer. Amputees must have been quite a regular sight throughout the Georgian and Victorian eras, and the prosthetics in use were varied and experimental. The other blog post is about the ghastly kitchens of the aristocracy. It was a common hobby for aristocrats with large kitchens in their homes, to practice the study of anatomy. They would cut up animals and boil their parts to try to understand how the body works. There was a huge grey area between culinary and scientific use of animal parts, with some anatomical works including instructions for cooking certain animals, and cook books advising on how best to dissect animals. I wanted to blend these two ideas and create a macabre short story in the vein of H.G. Wells’ Island of Dr. Moreau. I needed a wealthy military amputee with a huge manor house, and where better to find one than in the Companies of the British Empire. The man who inspired the character of the Master was not an amputee but a Major-General of one such Company; a large man with a reputation for having a ferocious temper. My character is completely fictional, and there is no reference to anyone living or dead. I am also a big fan of folk tales, and so decided to include an element of Indian folklore in the story.
