Remy Lemieux was born on 19th November 1927 to parents Philippe & Adèle in Verdun-sur-Meuse, France. The family also consisted of his older sister, Madeleine. He grew to be a quiet and introverted boy, preferring to read over playing outside and actively trying to make friends. In mid-1941, his parents took him and tried to flee the country, only to be captured by the Germans and put into a concentration camp. He was separated from them due to his age. After one brief, tearful and heart rending reunion with his sister, they were also torn apart and sent to different camps. Remy was sent to the transit camp of Le Milles, and later moved on to a labor camp in Germany. It was long, hard work hours with limited rations and basic tools. He was close to dying of malnutrition before war's end liberated him.
An aid organisation brought him back from death's door and sent him to an orphanage, which he could only see as another prison. He wound up on the streets, and through wit and manipulation, secured himself passage on a ship bound for New York City. On those streets, he pickpocketed until he came across the horse drawn carriages in Central Park and through clever conversation, gained his first real paying job. After the war, people were going on holidays again, and New York was a popular destination. Business boomed for anyone in tourism. Remy started out cleaning harnesses and mucking stables. After a driver named Henry (with a soft spot for Remy) picked up on the fact that he was living on the streets, he gave the young man a room in his own home and set him up to attend a local high school, where he was quickly seen as a budding genius with a huge gift for maths and science.
He continued to live with Henry and work at the stables all through high school. After classes and through summers, he would often drive carriages himself, earning large tips thanks to his witty banter and obvious love for the city and all that it had done for him.
In 1957, the rug was pulled out from underneath him, life stolen away from him when his sister's Maker finally succeeded in hunting him down and turning him, sending him hurtling into a dark world he didn't even know existed. Ripped away from those he loved once again, he bode his time, smartly pretending to become everything Josef taught him to be, gaining his trust until he could escape.
After outfoxing his own Maker, he went back to New York City and dove into academia, earning three degrees from Columbia University in Physics, Aerospace Engineering, and Astrophysics. During, he dealt with his new condition by bribing hospital workers to supply him with bagged blood so that he would no longer need to kill and taking night classes exclusively. After gaining his PhD from MIT, he dared have a brief reunion with Henry before going to work for the Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, where he worked on various orbiters, cargo craft for supplying the ISS, and the Mars Curiosity Rover (his pet project). As soon as vampire registration became available, he did so, tiring of hiding. Being independently wealthy, he now makes large donations to hospitals in exchange for blood. He has transferred to Seattle to work on a joint effort between Boeing and NASA on their Space Launch System for a future of powering people and cargo into deep space.
In January 2018, Boeing gave Remy possession of one of their factories in the suburb of Renton to start making reusable rockets and, eventually, an interplanetary transport system. He called the new private aerospace company Dyna Soar.
