Bitter and angry, Phillip then stumbled across an an ancient ,arcane book, in a public livbrary of all places. Paging through it, the book promised that power could be achrieved if he simplty followed the instructions. The rites anwere simple at first, requiring little investment of time,. But the more powerfulk abilities required larger sacrifices.
Phillip hjad a desire for power, but more gropping was his desire for revenge. Revenge upon the man who had cost him everything he held dear. The book required sacrifice of that which the sorceror held most dear to unlock the ture potential. So, late one night, Phillip 'accidentally' sliced off his right hand with a circular saw. Insurance benefis paid for the materials, and his power magnified exponentially. As a macabre joke, he kept the hand in a bottle of formeldahyde to remind hom of the extent he would go to for revenge. A week later, Phillip summoned his first Demon and three days after that, Max HArris met a rather grisly death.
His primary revenge wsatisfied, Corliss became an art collector himself, as without a right arm, he could no longer produce. Bitter about his loss, he appears to be a philantropist willing to sponsor young artists, but what he truly does is lead them down a long twisted road to self-destruction, as his jealously of their abilities manifests. It's almost the steryotypical 'Tortured Artist' schtick.
Six months ago, Phillip was contacted by a Lilim of Fate, who offered to restore his hand...after a fashion. Philip accepted, and the Lilim made some arrangements with a servitor of Death he knew...

Though the hand belongs to Corliss, the soul inhabiting the hand does not. A benefit of that is the Hand is far more Agile than phillip could ever hope to be. It's almost as hard to kill as Corliss himself. And the hand somehow manages to see and hear without any such sensory apparati, allowing Corliss to detatch it and send it on errands, should the need arise.
The Hand does not transmit any sensory data back to Corliss, however. Its skills are most certainly not Corliss' skills, and at times it seems to have a mind of its own. Most times, Corliss finds it far superior to an ordinary mechanical prosthesis. Most times...
