About Gru

Felonius Gru was born into a family that had quite the long line of villainy and Gru actually once possessed the title of the world’s greatest villain. Committing crimes and gaining infamous attention is all that Gru sought and when he realized that Vector stole his plans to steal the Pyramid of Giza, Gru came up with something better. Gru decided to commit the crime of stealing the moon but he was eventually interrupted and soon became the adoptive father of Margo, Edith, and Agnes. He first considered the girls as just pawns in his evil plans but after living with them for a while and getting to know them, he warmed up to them and eventually loved them as his own. Gru eventually decided to become a stay-at-home dad and turn his lab into a jelly manufacturing plant. In the movies, a few other incidents happen such as marriage and having to stop crimes in its tracks.
