Quick Biography

Grave Robber's past is shrouded in mystery - but he is a Zydrate peddler. He gets a cheap knock-off from dead bodies. He seems to have connections to Amber Sweet , sexually and as a dealer. Mysterious and darkly charismatic, he acts as the narrator of the post-apocalyptic world. We're not sure what his intentions are towards Shilo Wallace , but he does guide her through a world she would otherwise not understand and helps her avoid the militia for no good reason, other perhaps than the fact that it entertains him.

Physical Abilities

He's quick on his feet and very discreet - a thief and rogue over a fighter, GR is generally quite quick, supple and flexible physically. He probably bases his survival skills on speed rather than strength, and on cunning rather than brawn.

Superhuman Abilities

None, unless you count his near-contortionist ability to be such.

Unusual or Magical Possessions

He's showing up with some shots of zydrate and an injection gun - as a person who generally plunders things, he's also bound to have random useful items in his pockets. Because he will not have that much drug on him, though, he'll be rather leery of giving it up, and might consider the zydrate he holds to be his best bargaining chip, to be kept jealously.


Tall and lanky, with long dark brown hair that's probably not always clean. GraveRobber is very flexible and doesn't quite act as a contortionist… but almost. His complexion is extremely pale, which is emphasized by the fact that his lips and eyes are lined with dark pencil… or is that a trick of the light? He's generally (but not always) seen wearing dark colors, boots with many straps, and his clothes are rag-tag rather than fashion plate.


In the world of Repo! there are those who are rich, and those who are poor. There are those who need surgery, and those who bask in it. Then, there is Grave Robber, who is neither. He enables the system by collecting from dead bodies the drug which enables those addicted to surgery to go under the knife. This is the drug he resells on the street. Yet, Grave Robber comments on the actuality with a rather caustic and cynical view. His morals are indeed questionable - in Terrance Zdunich's words Yeah, he's a grave robber and while I'm sure this character would stealhe'd take the fillings out of your teeth and take the rings off your dead mother's fingersbut for the most part he's a drug dealer in this movie. At the same time, his criticism of the Largo family is sound - he knows all their weaknesses, so how could they be better than him?
By many ways, he's a bit of a rock star and a loose canon, rather appearing like a free-spirit in a world where freedom is on short supply, a modern and futuristic trickster whose comfort zone lies in chaos rather than order. In short, Grave Robber would be the self-taught, cynical intellectual of a world where tabloids are the only remaining written word, but also a street urchin, who simply does what he can to survive… and to have fun.

On arrival, he:

He later met Hatter, but it didn't seem to be a very fruitful conversation. Blind Mag's arrival is weirding him out quite a bit.
