Origin

Victor Frankenstein is tempted by his monster. He argues that as a living thing, he has a right to happiness. He promises that if Victor grants his request, he and his mate will vanish into the wilderness of South America uninhabited by man, never to reappear. Fearing for his family, Victor reluctantly agrees and travels to England to do his work. Working on a second being on the Orkney Islands, he is plagued by premonitions of what his work might wreak, particularly the idea that creating a mate for the creature might lead to the breeding of an entire race of creatures that could plague mankind. He destroys the unfinished female creature after he sees his first creation looking through the window. The monster witnesses this and confronting Victor, the monster vows to be with Victor on his upcoming wedding night. The monster murders Clerval and leaves the corpse on an Irish beach.

Notes

  • While this character was a failed experiment that never came to life in the book, it is pretty intuitive to imagine a scenario in which she did come to life.
  • The title of the film, "Bride of Frankenstein," actually makes no sense as "Frankenstein" was the doctor who created the monster. The monster (and the intended groom for the bride) never had a name.
  • The 1935 film The Bride of Frankenstein, created by Universal Pictures will NOT be public domain until at least 2031.
