Once a member of the affluent Croup family, Theodore prayed for something to wipe away the family debt incurred in a bad stock market trade. When he watched the mushroom clouds rising, he thought that it was someone's sick joke. Unprepared to survive though a nuclear attack he and his family would succumb to the effects of radiation poisoning... or at least partially. When he awoke the next morning he discovered that not only had the majority of his facial features slide off in his sleep – this left him wishing for a blue collar lifestyle – but also that his family was literally shambling about the premises.
Over January and February of 2078 he would both gather the shuffling remains of his family together and lock them in the basement – unable to bring himself to end their suffering – and look for other survivors. Meeting both ghoul and human alike whom all shard the experience of ending those whom turned into monsters and tried to kill the non-feral survivors. Likewise noticing that the ferals wouldn't attack other ghouls.
Unable to let go, he came to the conclusion that the old world was dead and they all could start over again without their debt. Going about to try and reeducate his family; to talk, function, and act like normal people again, like him. For the next two hundred years he would do his best, however around 2287 his frustration boiled over. After spending all that time trying to trying to teach these creatures how to act human, he had nothing to show for it. – Except maybe that his cousin James can spot the difference between a salad fork and a regular fork. Theodore couldn't be sure he's not lucky. As for his aunt Belinda he couldn't reach her at all, his frustration boiling over he swore that if she didn't soon he would "bust her head." He did, and the remains of his family would finally end his life.
