"Born in 1885, Victor Gilliatt was diagnosed with a extremely rare case of Cephalopodia (tentacles of the face). At the age of eight, he ran away and joined a traveling sideshow where for the next thirty-two years of his life he performed around the world as the “Octopus Man.”
While performing in Minsk he received a telegram stating that his father had died. Tired of the sideshow life, he decided to travel back to his home town and is now a successful ink salesman."
