Discarded from birth, forgotten by your own parents, raised by a fanatically religious hag, regularly bullied and beaten by fellow students, completely friendless, utterly isolated, your peers and strangers thinking you a total freak because of your appearance, staying the fuck away and always whispering about you, disallowed a normal childhood, physically abused at a place that's barely constitutes a real "home," a situation so bad that even the animals attack you.

Because Jonathan Crane has one of the most depressing, justifiably upsetting backstories and childhoods of all time.
Now, very, very rarely (if ever) do I consider fictional characters, let alone certain villains, as "poor babies," but seriously
Crane, you poor baby

I know killing and revenge is wrong and all but holy shit your poor bastard
oh my god
