Angus Grim opened Grim's Mortuary in 1896. At first, Grim was a kind and generous man. As he became more successful, however, Grim became greedy. The regular mortuary fees he collected no longer satisfied him, so now he started to steal from the dead. Before Angus Grim would bury the dead he would steal the gold out of the teeth of the corpse. He would steal the rings from their fingers before the dead were buried. Nothing of value that was placed with the corpse was safe from the greedy hands of Angus Grim.
