A couple of weeks ago I sat down and, thinking that I wanted to write something but feeling too tired to come-up with something original, I wrote a lengthy background story for Murray. To be precise, I wrote several, all of which tied into how he came to become pathetically evil. (For fun, only. I sometimes even write dialogue for games I'm playing, just to see how it measures up against the real thing. It's good practice, and teaches you new ways of thinking.)
Anyways, I'm not planning to show you guys any of the stories, but I want to ask: What do you think about Murray actually being disabled in life? What I mean is, what if Murray had never been able to control his body, had been given that ability a few moments before setting sail to Plunder Island (LeChuck killed him), and had then met the taste of a bitter cannonball that had left him bodiless? I thought it was both funny and sad, would explain his complete lack of self-confidence, his penchant for "true evil" (revenge against his tormenters, who he probably wants to be like), and was the kind of dark humor that Monkey Island tends to flirt with.
But, I'm not sure if this in character. Does this fit in the Monkey Island universe? Or have I gone too far?
