Born in Schenectady, New York, Otto Octavius had a turbulent upbringing. His father Torbert Octavius, a factory worker, was abusive and violent towards both Otto and his mother Mary Lavinia Octavius. The young Octavius’s shyness and good work in school got him labeled as a “teacher’s pet” and targeted as a subject for bullying. Torbert did not appreciate having a bullied son, and roared at him to use violence in dealing with the bullies. Mary Octavius would always defend her son from Torbert’s tirades, saying he was a gifted thinker who would use his brain to solve problems, not his fists. Due to his mother’s insistence and her disgust towards men who worked in common manual labor, Octavius was determined not to become like his father and threw all his efforts into his education, regularly scoring top marks. Octavius’s devotion to study paid off with him being awarded a university scholarship. During Octavius’s freshman year of college, he was undecided in his studies until they were briefly interrupted by his father’s funeral; a construction accident having ended Torbert’s life. When Mary Octavius remarked that “an early death is a manual laborer’s” and she expected better from her son; this seemed to spur an obsession in Octavius about the hard sciences; and he declared his major to be physical science. His obsession, however, did not manifest immediately, and he was regarded by his school friends as a devoted student who was genuinely interested in the studies. He graduated near the top of his class, and was considered a catch to many scientific firms. Octavius was soon hired by an engineering firm.
