At some point in his life, Grimes became the owner of a tavern in Saint Martin. One rainy day an unknown man covered in mud entered the tavern and demanded a drink. When Grimes asked him to show some silver the stranger didn't have any money. However, the stranger offered a trade, putting his compass on the counter. The compass began to shake and rattle, but before the stranger could take it back, Grimes took it and gave him a bottle of rum. Through unknown circumstances, this compass would be transferred from Grimes to the sea witch Shansa. His further fate is unknown.
