You can live here with me
Maniac was sent to live with his Uncle Dan and Aunt Dot. Uncle Dan and Aunt Dot hated each other.
I'm all alone
Maniac finally had enough of the fighting so he decided to run away and ends up in Two Mills, Pennsylvania. There he meets Amanda Beale and her family. They let him stay with them and treat him like family.
Welcome Back Home Maniac
Maniac didn't know that Two Mills was divided into two parts., The East End (where the whites lived and The West End (where the blacks lived). The Beales lived in the West End and many people did not like a white living in a black neighborhood so Maniac decided to leave. He soon met Grayson who agreed to let Maniac live with him.
Grayson died and Maniac was once again left with no home. He was cold and starving but one day he met Piper and Russell McNab. He stayed with them for a while but he then left.
The town of Two Mills finally had a coexistence. Amanda ends up finding Maniac and Maniac is able to return back to his home and family.
