Professor Elemental was born with a silver spoon in his mouth. It was removed by doctors soon afterwards and remains in the British Museum of the Unpleasant to this very day. His father was a victim of a severe grinding accident whilst working on the creation of a new grinding machine, leaving baby Elemental to be raised under the watchful eye of his overprotective mother. Fed on a diet of pureed swan and old-fashioned British madness, he soon grew into one of the least respected and most ridiculed Professors to ever be turned away from every London society (including the Cub Scouts and the WI). Undeterred, he continues to work tirelessly on inventions that are both unwanted and unwelcome in polite society with the aid of his trusty butler Pugh and his Augmented Oran tang Geoffrey. He enjoys dissection, gin and shrieking with maniacal giggles at inopportune moments.
