The Torso is the ghost of Jimmy "Gambler" Gambino, and the second ghost in the Black Zodiac.
Jimmy Gambino was obsessed with gambling, and would spend his days at the track instead of school, and his nights gambling at seedy bars.
Jimmy eventually opened his own booking business.
His inability to turn down a bet eventually caught the attention of Larry "Finger" Vatelo, who bet heftily on a boxing match.
Jimmy agreed, and sealed his fate. When Jimmy's fighter was defeated, he fainted.
When Jimmy awakened, Larry and his gang arrived to collect Larry's winning from Jimmy. But because Jimmy was cleaned out, instead, they cut Jimmy's body up, wrapped the pieces in cellophane and dumped them into the ocean.
Following his death, Jimmy's earth-bound spirit was captured by Cyrus to become the Torso.
The Torso was then moved to the basement of the house.
The Torso was the fourth ghost to be released.
The Torso appeared before Bobby, scaring him.
Later, a Latin chant caused the Torso, along with the other 11 ghosts, to go to the centre of the machine and power it up.
When the Torso and the other ghosts were freed from Cyrus's trance, they threw Cyrus into a rotating crest of rings.
When the house exploded, destroying its walls, all twelve ghosts escaped the house and into the woods.
