Ebenezer Grimm was born in 1852 in St. Louis, Missouri, into the very wealthy and powerful Grimm family. He always knew that one day he would become a great inventor, but everything he tried to create would become an embarrassing, and sometimes dangerous, failure.
After years of failed inventions, Ebenezer became bitter and full of hate and jealousy toward other, successful, inventors. He took a large chunk of his inheritance and purchased a large factory, and hired many skilled laborers, which he adoringly refered to as Grimm's Minions. The factory was closed off to the outside world and a large sign hung on the largest side of the building that read "Grimm's Red Tree Atelier".
Ebenezer set out to steal a new invention that one of his Minions had discovered, that had been created by an old, no-name inventor. The invention, called the Liquid Aether Trap, could suck a powerful substance out of the very air, and trap it in a container. The liquid aether could then be used as a powerful energy source.
Ebenezer tried to steal the only successful example of the Liquid Aether Trap, but a fight ensued between him and the old inventor. The Trap was broken, explosively releasing the aether liquid into the room, killing the old inventor and severely damaging Ebenezer's lungs, chest, and arms. His Minions gathered all the documents and the now broken Trap and returned Ebenezer to the Atelier. They created an air filtering mask to protect his damaged lungs from exposure to impurities in the air, and set about recreating the trap.
Ebenezer and his Minions now scour the planet in search of no-name inventors and steal their inventions, sometimes killing them in order to keep them silent.
