Jasper Marr was the ancestor of Melissa Margaret Marr, and the doctor responsible for overseeing hydrotherapy treatments at the Vannacutt Psychiatric Institute for the Criminally Insane. When the Institute's inmates revolted against the staff in 1931 and caused a fire in the asylum, Dr. Marr was one of the five asylum staff members who survived.

The house would invite Jasper's descendant, Melissa, to the Vannacutt facility for a party and would kill her there, in an attempt to complete the asylum inmates' revenge.
