Dekkar, Doctor. Doctor Dekkar is the Moreau-like “master of monsters.” He has discovered a way to “activate the glands, so that one may grow to amazing size.” but when growth is too rapid, the subject’s “body and brain are distorted” and they become a beast. Dekkar is opposed by Bob Trent and Diane Clark, Trent’s fiancee. Among Dekkar’s other monsters is a femme fatale Tiger Woman, beast-men, condor-men, and various other animal-men, who revert to animal form if not injected with human brain cells every six hours. (This limitation proves to be Dekkar’s ultimate undoing).
