Victor Gault was formerly a small-time hood with a penchant for covering his victims in "crawlies" to extract information from them.

When Gault was murdered by a mysterious foe, he found himself transported to the Darkscape along with the foes' other victims. While the others were cast into darkness, never to be seen again, Gault was spared this fate. After wandering the realm long enough to be driven to the brink of insanity, Gault was approached by a masked man.

The masked man explained that he knew Jason Isaacs would never serve him willingly and that he had orchestrated the entire ordeal simply to bring a selection of evil souls to his realm. Victor Gault was his chosen one among these souls, and thus he was made to wear the familiar armor of Widower.

Widower now stalks the shadows of Gemini City, occasionally serving the masked man's mysterious whims.
