Hellboy, or Anung Un Rama as he was called was conceived around the 16th century in 1574 when his mother, a East Bromwich witch named Sarah Hughes, became a consort to the demon Azzael. Despite Sarah's attempt to repent for her sins years later while on her death bed, Azzael claimed her so their child would be born and chopped the newborn's right hand off to replace it with the Right Hand of Doom, a relic tied to the Ogdru Jahad. Azazel then sent his half-demon child away when the other demons learned of his actions, appearing on Earth on the night of December 23, 1944 as part of ritual by Grigori Rasputin and Nazi-based Project Rangarok.
But the child appeared in the churchyard where his mother was abducted, found by Professor Trevor Bruttenholm when he and a military group were investigating Project Ragnarok. Bruttenholm befriended the infant, affectionately naming him ‘Hellboy,’ and the demon child was raised in secret by the U.S. government and trained/educated to be a paranormal investigator in the established Bureau for Paranormal Research and Defense (BPRD). Eventually, his demon heritage aging him slowly, Hellboy would meet Liz Sherman, Abe Sapien among other agents of the BPRD as they defend humanity while gradually he learns of his origins.
