Giles grew up fairly normal. His father was a serial killer, but he didn't know it until he was 18 years old. He studied to become a doctor from a young age, as that's what everyone in his family tree had done dating back to Roger Hughes. He eventually learned that Roger Hughes daughter had a son by Joseph Studdard a descendant of Mathias Bloom.
Giles attended college from 1963 - 1973. When he graduated, he was ready to become a doctor. He had attended Cambridge, which gave him an opportunity to live in another country for a while. When Giles returned home, his father explained to him about everything. He forced him to kill James Washington. It was Giles first kill, and he enjoyed it immensely.
Becoming The LegendEdit
Shortly after his first kill, Giles killed his father for his second kill. He wanted all the power for himself, not understanding why he should have to wait for his father to die of natural causes. He took control of Aturm Ordos, who offered him several victims. Young girls ranging from age 6 to 16. They'd even offer their own children if they thought it would make him happy. Giles enjoyed killing, and making people suffer. At the same time, he had to be a doctor, and treat people. He took his job very seriously still. He didn't kill any of his patients just to add to his total. Both because of his profesionalism, and because it wouldn't have been as 'fun'.
He met Belinda Hughes shortly after becoming a doctor. She was an Englishwoman, who fancied marrying a doctor. She was kind, and gentle. Giles figured she'd be the perfect cover. In 1985 he and Belinda had a son together, Wes. Giles had to make excuses to leave town without his wife or son -- often conferences or medical emergencies.
In 1996, Giles decided to wreak havoc in Ruby Springs. He found the kindest, gentlest soul in town, and decided to murder her. He waited until Hank Wakefield was at the store, and Candace Swain was out playing to knock on the door of the Wakefield Farm. Trisha let him come in, having no idea that he was going to kill her. Giles told her that Wes (who was 11 at the time) had broken his arm, and he needed her help to set it. Trisha grabbed her stuff, but as she did, Giles grabbed her, and slung a rope around her neck. Giles then hung her, and left her so that her daughter and husband would come home and find it.
In 1998 Giles Hughes was given Jenna Angel as a gift. He had Alice Dae to thank for that. Giles beat Jenna, wanting to make her squeal. But Jenna had endured so much pain already, that she wouldn't. Giels liked this about her. He felt that she was strong for an eleven year old girl. He then raped her several times. When Rico Angel and his son came to save her, Giles killed Rico in front of both of them. Giles couldn't kill Jenna, because she was pregnant with his child, who he felt would become the next Legend. He wanted to kill Gray, but was worried about what Jenna might do. So he left them both alive. Jenna and Gray were too shook up to be able to say anything.
Giles Hughes killed several people during his time as The Legend. The names of the children he raped and murdered are unknown, but the numbers are expected to be over 120. Atrum Ordos records do not state the names of the children, but suggest that a child was offered once every 3 months for 34 years. The FBI does not have records on all of Hughes murders, but is able to connect him to 25.

The Last DaysEdit
After the Angels, Arcturus considered offering him the Gemini Twins to play with. But they were worried he might kill them, seeing them as competition. In 2007, Giles retired from his doctor's practice. He then killed his own wife.
Angels of DeathEdit
During the Angels of Death murders, he wasn't a suspect. He was however the main target. He lied constantly to investigators. Eventually he was kidnapped by Jenna Angel. While kidnapped, Jenna offered him some water -- but the water was filled with drugs that she was immune to because of her cancer treatment. Jenna Angel then murdered him in the same way that he had murdered her father. She also made sure he knew that his group was finished.
"My son has a long ways to go. If you're going to do something, you have to be the absolute best in it. That isn't something he seems to understand."
"Yes. Of note? Well... the order of death I suppose. I'm not sure if it's relevant or not. Alan Harper was first. Nearly a day ahead of the next victim-- Richard Davenport. Who himself was 3 hours before Jett Wellington. Wellington was 30 minutes ahead of Dr. Phelps. And 10 minutes after that, Riley Kimball."
"You're not better than I am. Not really, Jenna."
"They will! I sent a note to them, telling them that the Wakefield Farm might be a good place to look! See, I'm going to survive this. And nobody, not even those stupid investigators are going to know that I was The Legend!"
"You don't expect me to believe you managed to kill everyone in Atrum Ordos without your precious brothers help?"
"Your monologuing has given me enough time to break free. Stupid little girl. Now it's time I deal with you once and for all! You think you can handle me, Cancer girl?" - Last Words.
