Since 1973, Adam has been living a normal life. One day, he witnesses Hunger collecting a Catholic, Christopher, who actually escaped Hell's custody and set off after his older brother. Hunger collects Christopher again and threathens to take Adam as well to "justify the expense" of his journey. Adam persuades Hunger to accept another person, Ben (Adam's son), as the man's replacement in Hell but unfortunately Christopher has already killed him. Hunger then explains that Hell won't accept "damaged merchandise" and that he really just wants to hear Adam scream so he takes him to Hell.


Hunger is a cenobite who has pale blue skin. He is bald with a tight leather, spike-covered suit that clings to his dangerously skinny body. His mouth is outstretched, much like Chatterer's and he has many sharp and pointed teeth. Hunger also has large bulbous, but threatening eyes and wears white gloves.
