Living Dead Girl’s silent servant is known as Grave. Those who fight him quickly realize that underneath his clothing his seemingly normal skin and body is made of densely packed grave soil and stones. He’s gained a reputation for being nearly indestructible, as gravel, soil, and dirt tends to slip inside his clothing and replace as chunks of his earthen body knocked out of place.
What no one knows is Grave’s true origin. In reality Grave is really the former hero Brawler. Brawler was a little known masked martial artist who was active in the late 1960s and early 1970s. He was known primarily for his excellent physical condition and his use of Krav Maga in fighting crime with ruthless efficiency. Unfortunately he met his end in 1973 when he joined forces with the Luciferian in defeating a creature who may or may not have been the vampire lord Dracula. Dracula ripped out the martial artist’s heart after he had struck an especially brutal blow.
Brawler was revealed to be Samuel Hirsch, a former Israeli commando who had left the service to fight super human threats to innocent lives. He was laid to rest as a hero and those whose lives her touched celebrated his lifetime of service.
That would have been the end of the story if Living Dead Girl hadn’t heard about him following her transformation into one of the living dead. She quickly realized that despite her newfound power she was vulnerable to the right kind of foe. Needing protection she researched the deaths of especially tough super heroes and discovered where Samuel Hirsch was buried. Using her new powers over the death she rose his skeleton from the grave and covered it in dense soil and stone until her protector’s body was as hard as concrete. Since then he has served as Living Dead Girl’s protector, using his martial arts skill and prodigious strength to crush any enemy that rears its head.
Grave possesses only a fraction of the intelligence, and agility of his former self. His dim memories forming the basis for what few skills he has left. He appears to retain some of his skill at Krav Maga, remembering his skills almost reflexively. What few know is that he retains his strength only through keeping contact with the ground, if he’s kept in the air for long periods of time the soil surrounding his skeleton will fall away until he is unable to fight back.
