|Past Name: Deacon Vrainian|
As a Human Edit
The famous Deacon Vrainian, marveled for being a skilled surgeon with the most skilled hands in the world. All his successes increased his reputation, and he became quite famous, but one false move cost him everything: his career and later his sanity. He inadvertently killed his wife in the process of the surgery and wanted to find a way to shut out all the noise. The answer was a small wooden box etched in brass, As he opened it Pinhead appeared before him and offered him a way to forget; Deacon accepted in the blink of an eye. Early in the film Hellraiser: Hellseeker, Deacon appeared in Trevor's hallucination-nightmare, where he was operating on Trevor.
As a Cenobite: Edit
Surgeon was present and was one of many cenobite witnesses to Kirsty opening the box for a second time and entering Hell willingly a third time. There she made a deal with Pinhead to bring five souls in return for her own, now being more concerned for her own life rather than that of others as she fully learned the order of Hell. Pinhead agreed and Surgeon, Bound, Stitch, Chatterer III and him waited for Kirsty to open the box and deliver the first victim. The first victim was the one which Pinhead sent Bound and Surgeon to retrieve, during which they smothered one of Trevor's affairs women with seran wrap. Trevor later witnessed this first hand after his own death while forever trapped in Limbo, which he will endure for all eternity for his crimes against order. After this, Surgeon appears again in Hellraiser: Hellworld.
