Spencer Grimm was a small town boy who worked on his parents farm in rural Ohio. Due to the nature of his upbringing and the work ethic taught to him from his parents, he was a man of dedication and reliability. At the age of 17, with the consent of his parents, enlisted in the United States Army. Spencer enlisted with the hope of becoming a combat medic. Much to his surprise he scored well enough on the ASVAB to become one, and managed to get the MOS of 68W. Spencer proved himself to be knowledgeable beyond his peers and was able to quickly show that he was a much quicker learner than his peers. Spencer Grimm quickly rose through the ranks up to Sergeant. A short time after Achieving this rank, the newly SGT. Spencer would be stationed at Fort Lewis, where he would be when the infection made contact within the United States borders. As the infection the base was put on alert and no one was allowed in or out of the base. It was only a matter of time before the base defenses fell to the endless onslaught of infected coming from Interstate Route 5. As Spencer noticed more and more of the soldiers stationed at the base, he realized his only avenue for survival would be to abandon the base and go AWOL. This was a hard choice for Spencer to come to as he had been raised with a sense of pride and commitment to his job. How ever, he soon realized, "Better them than me." Which is one of his favorite sayings to this day. While SGT. Spencer was fond of that saying, he was still committed to helping people in need. He eventually found himself in Pleasant Valley, where he met two men of the names Michael Diachi and Kase Mcilwrath. He was at first at odds with them but wound up being useful after Diachi had his eye severely injured in a firefight with a group known as the Ravens. Since that day Spencer has been a loyal member within the Dead Horse ranks.
