Character Bio

Trashcan Man photo
Donald Merwin Elbert, better known as the "Trashcan Man", is a schizophrenic with deeply-embedded pyromaniac tendencies—his favorite phrases include "bumpty, bumpty, bump!" and "my life for you." He often found himself in trouble during his years as a youth due to his fixation with fire and his nickname comes from his childhood habit of starting fires in trash cans. Trashcan Man was treated with shock treatments at an institution in Terre Haute, Indiana, before being incarcerated for arson as a teenager; in the temporal setting of The Stand, the character remains incarcerated.
