Mel Grimson was born on April 14, 1898, in the less fortunate neighborhood of Chicago. Life was difficult for the family of three, Matthew a factory worker and the family struggling to get by. It was clear that Mel, with his energy and intensity, his parents knew, would go on to greater things than they. Indeed, in 1917, with high hopes, Mel went out and overseas to fight the Germans.

The slaughter of the Argonne and the brutality of war was shocking, but only the beginning. The true aftermath that pained him was how the peace that Wilson spoke of scattered about in the wake of Versailles. And then, the rise of bootlegging and organized crime at home darkened his spirits.

Indeed, on July 23, 1920, Matthew and Melicia Grimson became collateral damage of a shootout between police and bootlegging thugs. Utterly broken in spirit, Mel became more callous and hardened, taking on a private detective position for several years, fighting crime and whatnot with sheer force of will.

In 1928, the Mob in New York finally caught up to him, and prepared a seven Thompson salute. When Grimson gritted his teeth and waited for the end, his body hardened up and the bullets bounced away. Having become a stalwart and thrashing his pursuers, Mel deciding on consulting the foremost experts of Inspired matters, the Aeon Society.

Maxwell Mercer had the rare impact of introducing a touch of positive outlook and hope into Mel Grimson's worldview, and Mel became an agent of Aeon for some time, taking advantage of his business to send reports over to Aeon as intelligence.

He hasn't regretted it since.
