Morbius was raised by a single mother in Greece. His childhood was lonely because he had some unique blood condition. Because of this condition, his looks would be obnoxious and hideous. He was a Noble prize winner, a Biologist who is an expert in the fields of human and animal biology.
Later he escaped from his home country to find a cure for his rare blood condition.
