Lorenzo Cabot is a supposedly supernatural being being worshipped by the Maldenmen as a dark god. Rumor has it that he that resides within the lowest and most secure chamber of Parsons State Asylum.
Researchers believe that Lorenzo somehow has the ability to telepathically communicate with and psychically influence those around him. It is believed that this process of psychic manipulation drives people into madness, as they become obsessed with freeing Lorenzo from his prison. This is seen in the Maldenmen, who are drawn to his prescience and ritualistically worship him, desperately trying to do whatever they can in order to free him.
