Sebastian Sangre was an abusive alcoholic who often beat his wife and son. He was soon killed by his son, Sebastian, with the encouragement of Cyrus Gold and Roger Trigon. Sebastian then pinned his father's murder on his mother, Maya, who presumably had a history of mental illness. This led to her being committed at St. Walker's Hospital, a psychiatric ward.
