As a young man, Seymour had aspirations of becoming an optometrist. Born with the
unique ability of causing blindness in others, he could have made a killing in the
field. Unfortunately, he failed out of medical school, and he was forced to follow
the path of so many other failures: he became a dentist.
Time was not kind to Seymour. He wound up becoming a maniacally depressed, middle-aged
man. Lonely. Unsuccessful. And, perhaps worst of all, a virgin. His only companion:
his indolent basset hound, Bella. One day, after losing his job, Seymour had had
enough. He threw down his pointy tools and turned to a life of crime... unfortunately,
he's found that he's really not any more successful at that.
