Louis XVI [1] is the ghost of a former French king who attended the first annual Deadcon in New York at Plump Towers.


Louis XVI became king of France in May 10, 1774 at age 20 and served for 17 years, 144 days. He faced the challenge of leading a nation in debt and a growing public hatred for monarchies. Louis was arrested during the Insurrection of August 10, 1792 and found guilty of high treason. Louis XVI was the only king of France that was executed.

Almost 200 years later, the ghost of Louis XVI attended Deadcon 1 in New York. Unlike most ghosts, he manifested as a headless entity and carries its decapitated head around. During a masquerade party, Winston Zeddemore sat with the ghost and made small talk while moving a Ghost Trap into position under the table. Winston successfully trapped him.
