|“||Greetings, recruits. Welcome to my home. I am Gru, master villain, scourge of humanity. So... you want to be a Minion? Your training will begin soon, but be warned: danger lurks at every turn.||„|
Gru is a character from the movie series Despicable Me. He comes from a long lineage of villains, as shown by the statues of his ancestors in Dru's hideout. Although his hometown is unknown, he claimed to be from New Mexico in an interview with Ellen DeGeneres.
For most of his childhood he was neglected and ignored by his mother, and it is unknown if this is what inspired him to become a supervillain, or if the Gru family is a family of supervillains, although his mother showed no signs of being one.
