Chucky is a former serial killer believed to have been killed after being shot by police during a chase. Mortally wounded at a toy factory that manufactured Good Guy Dolls, he used a voodoo spell to transfer his soul into one of the dolls, named Chucky. Although he has attempted numerous times to return to human form, usually by transferring his soul to a human child that happens to claim him as an owner, he eventually decided to remain as a doll, believing that as a living doll, he has an advantage at becoming a unique serial killer.
