Doctor Gordon Mortley is a doctor who runs Shady Palms Clinic with Nurse Edith Mortley. They are con artists who murders their own patients and continue billing the state for their maintenance.
Doctor Mortley is actually a veterinarian who poses as a doctor.
He is the brother of Edith Mortley.
An organization known as the Anti-Hunters captured him, along with her sister, as their victims for murdering their patients and scamming the government.
Doctor Mortley is a con-artist posing as a doctor. He, along with Edith, kills their patients and bills the state for money.
Gordon is greedy and only cares for money instead of the well-being of his patients, whether they are sick, injured, or even terminally ill.
Gordon and Edith shares a brother-sister bond, using their medic clinic and occupations for their money making scheme. Gordon often kills his "patients" during "surgery" while Edith assists him.
When dealing with an official, such as when is getting close to the truth or someone willingly to close down the clinic, or just don't want to do kill anyone himself, he lays back as he lets his sister do it. Gordon is laid-back to the point he lets his sister kill one of the patients because he's afflicted with tuberculosis, showing more of his lack of care even refuse to commit murder in a direct/aggressive approach.
Doctor Mortley is a veterinarian who poses as a doctor, showing some degree in medical knowledge but uses it to commit murder and fraud. He also shows incompetence and can be clumsy when handling equipment such as dropping a dog's hear during a "heart transplant" and left his surgical saw inside one of his deceased patients.
Despite being a veterinarian, Gordon chose crime over helping animals, even pointing out he and Edith had a dog's heart.
After killing their patients, Gordon does the work of burying their victims up a hill.
Gordon does have an interest to find love love, he lets Louise Kagel be a permanent resident of the clinic by supplying the alcoholic woman with liquor in exchange for sex. However, even after she witness Edith killing, Gordon grew fondness for her to the point he refuse to kill her himself, leading Edith to do it.
Doctor Mortley is a trim, middle-aged man.
He has black hair, black eyes, and a black moustache.
Edith is Gordon's sister.
For years, the duo are con-artists who run Shady Palms Clinic where they murder their own patients and and bill the state for maintenance. Gordon poses as doctor, who's really a veterinarian, and Edith as a registered nurse, who really got kicked out of nursing school.
During his "surgeries", Nurse Mortley hands him medical tools to kill their patients instead of supposedly saving or curing them.
When billing the state, Gordon questions her about making expenses but Edith heeded him they have to be careful of the charges. In contribution for their sense of greed, Dr. Mortley's "surgeries" are no more than $4,000 but Edith has to cut the price low, in tribute of what the latter stated that they mustn't be too greedy.
Sharing a typical brother-sister relationship, Gordon and Edith share a sick sadistic humor on how to handle with their patients in lethal methods. They also share disagreements to some degree, such as billing the state for maintenance, but also personal interests such as Edith's fondness towards rats, calling them "babies", and letting them live in the basement and feeding them remains of human flesh while risking a health violation and Gordon's interest to find love when he let Louise Kagel be a permanent resident of the clinic by supplying the alcoholic woman with liquor in exchange for sex. Edith even stated she can put up with him for his sake because he's her brother. When Gordon came down the stairs, Edith was frustrated at him as she was calling for help while she was being chased by Brownie, Gordon claimed he was taking a nap so he couldn't hear what happened.
In contrast on how they murder their patients, Gordon lets Edith have her way of dealing with an official, such as when is getting close to the truth or someone willingly to close down the clinic. When it comes to patients, Edith warns him to be careful when someone is getting too close or, given they work at a clinic, visit occasionally.
In comparison of Gordon, being a veterinarian, posing as a doctor and Edith posing as a registered nurse, both of them are shows incompetence and can be clumsy when handling the equipment such as dropping a dog's hear during a "heart transplant", including Gordon leaving his surgical saw inside one of his deceased patients.
Edith can get annoyed at Gordon about doing his first "special operations", such as a "heart transplant" on Charles Bedowski, and Edith reveals that Gordon pestered her for months about doing his first brain surgery.
Also, unlike Edith who adores rats, Gordon doesn't want to go in the basement as he was squeamish about the rats and the odor but Edith assures him that its good for business to feed the remains of their victims to the rats, though, Edith did mentioned she was gonna kill some of the rodents to feed to the unknown patients, showing Edith, like Gordon to some degree, seemingly wants to get rid of them, though, some of them.
Gordon and Edith cares for each other, and are concern for the other's well being. When Gordon was stabbed by Brownie, Edith retaliates by hacking her to death with a cleaver. Nurse Mortley, after being kidnapped, was even led to falsely believe that her brother was still as she was forced to lead the police off the Anti-Hunters' trail not knowing he was dead a few weeks ago.
Gordon, posing as a doctor, shows no genuine respect or care of the patients brought to Shady Palms Clinic. The patients are usually strapped and gagged on the operating table as Gordon does "surgery" on them. The "surgery" often comes with the patients dying and Gordon buries up a hill but other times their thrown into the basement to avoid suspicion of discharge or overcharging on the state.
Mr. Powell was seen getting "surgery" when Gordon stabbed him with multiple knives with the assistance of his sister, Nurse Edith Mortley.
After being killed, Gordon buried him up a hill.
During his "surgery" with Charles during a heart transplant, Gordon asks for a surgical saw but Edith tells him he left it inside Mr. Powell.
When John Davis was brought to the clinic by Faith Chandler, Dr. Mortley put him in the room that's closest to the stairs but doesn't like to get too close to him because of his tuberculosis so Edith went upstairs and smothered him with a pillow.
Gordon than buried him up a hill next to Mr. Powell's body. However, Faith came to visit him and Gordon pretend to him by audibly coughing. Gordon than went up the hill and dug his body up, dragged him to the clinic than washed the dirt off with a hose, than dragged him upstairs back to the room where he was kill in. When Nurse Mortley showed Faith to his room, Dr. Mortley was waving John's arm to fool Faith.
After she left and while Edith was napping, Gordon reburied him up the hill.
Charles Bedowski was brought to the clinic for a heart transplant. During "surgery", Gordon, with the assistance of Edith, cut open his chest with a scalpel than cut out his heart with a saw. When requested for a heart of dog, he dropped it and he, and Edith, chased it, thus making the "procedure" a failure.
Gordon later buried up the hill.
Though, never seen interacted, Faith does know both him and Edith. She believes he and Edith are professionals as she left John Davis and Charles Bedowski in their care, not knowing they were killed.
When she checked into the clinic herself and got stabbed by Edith, Gordon puts both her and Louise in the garage with the rats.
Louise came to the clinic to raid herself from alcohol dependence, however, Gordon grew fondness for her. He allowed her to become a permanent resident of the clinic by supplying the alcoholic woman with liquor in exchange for sex.
Gordon warns her to stay out of Edith's sherry as she found the bottle half-empty.

After she recovers and goes upstairs, Gordon, who has her bag and didn't know she was violent towards anyone to has it, Brownie yells at the "son-of-a-bitch" as he has her bag and stabs him repeatedly with a knife but was saved by Edith who hacks her to death with a cleaver.
Mischa is the only patient Gordon hasn't interacted with given his injuries he sustained from Brownie.
When he was brought in, Gordon tell Edith that he "makes a lot noise" given his anti-socialist rants.
Gordon introduces Mr. Smith to Edith.
Mr. Smith, a environmental health officer, from the County Health Department tells them that he's gonna shut down Shady Palms Clinic because he notices rats coming out of the sewers and going into the clinic's basement.
Though, Gordon remained silent and seated on the couch as he watched Edith stabbed him to death with a kitchen knife.
He was later put in the garage for the rats to eat.
