Brief Character History: Curtis was the abusive husband of Kate Roberts, and father of her two children, Austin and Billie. When Curtis learned that his wife was sleeping with Bill Horton, he took their two children (then aged 4 and 2) and left her beaten and bloody on the side of a road, pregnant with another man's child. He told Kate that their children had died, and changed not only their names but his own (his real name is assumed to be Curtis Brown, but the real names of his children have never been revealed). Both Billie and Austin eventually broke away from Curtis, and ended up coming to Salem. Their newfound happiness could have been destroyed when Curtis came to Salem to assassinate John Black on DiMera orders. Billie spotted her father and could have proven him as the shooter, but Billie lied to the police, terrified that Bo would find out that Curtis was her father, and that not only had he turned her into a drug addict, he had also sexually molested her as a little girl. Once out, Curtis paid a visit to Kate Roberts, who had always believed that they had been divorced years ago. He taunted Kate with the deaths of their two children, never once telling her that they were already in Salem. Kate was shocked when Curtis told her that they had never actually divorced. Kate was desperate to hold on to Victor, so when Curtis blackmailed her with the knowledge of their marriage, she gladly paid up rather than risk losing her position in Salem society. Curtis' last job in Salem was to bring Stefano DiMera to town so he could restart his reign of terror against the Bradys, but he decided to try to make a little money off of that as well, and kidnapped Stefano, holding him for ransom. He finally did return Stefano to his ward, Kristen, but by then, Curtis had already made an enemy for life. When Curtis turned up murdered in an alley-way, all suspicion turned to Billie, whom he had drugged with the intent to rape that night. Kate soon became a suspect in Curtis' murder, and Lucas then claimed guilt to save his mother. At the same time, Kate discovered that Austin and Billie were the children Curtis had stolen from her so long ago. Eventually it was proved that none of the three had killed Curtis, and they went free. Stefano was ultimately responsible, but was never held accountable for Curtis' death. Curtis returned twice as a ghost, once to take Marlena's soul to hell, and the second time to take Billie's soul to hell. He also appeared as a demon in the Garden of Eden storyline where Greta and Austin had to escape temptation to survive.

Curtis also committed many crimes during his reign on Days of Our Lives. Among them, they included; Sexually molesting his daughter, Billie, attempting to kill John Black, blackmailing Kate Roberts, kidnapping Stefano DiMera, and drugging and attempting to rape his daughter Billie.

[edit] Storylines

He is the deadbeat father of Austin and Billie Reed. Curtis Brown married Kate Roberts in 1969 while living in Chicago. They had a son and daughter. Curtis was a jazz musician and made several records, but his career was cut short when he became involved with the Mafia and had part of his ring finger cut off. After this he became addicted to drugs and became abusive toward his family, at one point raping his own daughter. Kate began having an affair with Bill Horton in 1979. When she got pregnant by him, Curtis found out, beat her up and left her on the side of a road. He then took their two young children and disappeared.

Curtis immediately changed his last name and the names of the children; their birth names have never been revealed, but Curtis renamed them Austin and Billie Holiday Reed. Curtis and the kids went from city to city, often changing names due to his criminal activities. Kate was searching for her children when Curtis contacted her and told her that their children had died in a car wreck. Years later he would appear in Salem and shoot John Black under orders from Stefano DiMera. Since Curtis didn't kill John, DiMera refused to pay him. An angry Curtis kidnapped Stefano and held him on Smith Island until Kristen Blake paid him ransom for Stefano.

He was shot to death by Stefano DiMera on November 10, 1993 in a back alley behind Billie's apartment. He was discovered in the morning by Bo Brady and Wendy Reardon when they went to the alley to get some crates. Due to multiple seemingly conclusive pieces of evidence, the most important being the gun from which the bullet came having been found in a dresser drawer during a search warrant at her apartment, Billie was originally arrested for his murder. It was not until the March 31, 1994 episode that Stefano was revealed as the shooter. After this, he appeared as a ghost multiple times between 1994 and 2001.
