Blizzard grows to become master of the underworld, driven by his overwhelming desire to revenge himself upon Dr. Ferris, the man who crippled him as a child. The object of Blizzard's revenge is Ferris' daughter Rose, who falls in love with the cripple. Luring Rose's fiancé Wilmont to his apartment, Blizzard orders Ferris to graft Wilmont's legs onto his body. Upon threat of his daughter's death, Ferris agrees, but when Blizzard awakens he discovers that Ferris has performed an operation on his brain which has destroyed his desire for evil. Rose and Blizzard are then married but their happiness is short-lived when the cripple is killed by a former henchman.
