Weary is eighteen years old and from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
He has had an unhappy childhood: he is not popular in Pittsburgh because he's a stupid bully.
Weary likes to attach himself to people even less popular than him, pretend to be friends for a while, and then beat the crap out of them.
He has done this over and over again.
Weary's father, a plumber, collects torture instruments and weapons.
He once gave Weary's mother a working thumbscrew as a paperweight and a lamp with a model of the Iron Maiden of Nuremberg as its base. The Iron Maiden was a medieval torture instrument, a human-sized hinged metal cabinet shaped like a woman on the outside and lined with spikes on the inside. It had a drain in the bottom for blood.
