Professor Hubert Windlenot’ is one of the people mentioned in the game ‘Shivers‘, and one of the Ixupi‘s victims.
Professor Hubert Windlenot moved to Mt. Pleasant, Ohio several years prior to the events of the game. He had done so to build the museum of his dreams.
Hubert Windlenot is one of the members of a very old family in Britian. The Windlenot family has been around for centuries, as noted in the letter from his family’s lawyers.
After graduating university, Hubert Windlenot went into a career of Archeology, possibly the first in his family line to do so. It could be assumed that he had the finances to do such things, since his family is wealthy, something that held true over the years.
At some point in Hubert’s life, he earned Knighthood. This could be linked to some Archeological discovery, since Knighthood cannot be purchased.
After this, Hubert had decided to fulfill his dream of a museum for the things that he found interesting: the oddities of the world. He, no doubt, had felt it was possible after Robert E. Ripley made such things famous. It is also possible that Windlenot had decided to create the museum in America since Ripley was American.
Hubert had accepted a professorship at a college in Ohio, and moved to Point Pleasant, Ohio. When he mentioned his dreams of opening a museum, the town decided to allow it, expecting Professor Windlenot to provide people in the town jobs. Professor Windlenot had, in the interest of keeping some things about the place to be a surprise to the town, gone with outside help.
In the years that followed, he acquired various objects for on display, and was slowing getting things in order. His work at the university had also earned him some admirers in the town, one being a young man who was new to the town.
In September of 1980, he had left on trip, no doubt related to his museum. When he had returned, he had discovered some things in the museum in disarray. He figured the place had been broken into, but something told him the break in was not meant to be malicious. To his horror, he discover the exhibit of the Ixupi had been tampered with, and that all thirteen were released.
Hubert met his death as he was trying to flee from the museum. While he was fleeing through the area with the underground lake, his life essence was taking by the Stone Ixupi. This led to his spirit being trapped inside the Stone Ixupi’s Vessel. His spirit, however, has been able to speak out to people who get near the museum.
Hubert Windlenot is survived by his estranged wife, and his son Geoffrey. Geoffrey had gotten married in 1984, and it is possible that the young man had children by the time of 1995.
