Grimmer is a bright man who has a stubborn persistence in searching for the barefooted truth. He is a well intentioned, fairly deceptively simple, fellow who has difficulties in expressing things like empathy and showing genuine emotion to others, which makes it hard to function in a world that has never seen so many people before.
However, he’s adamant in learning how to best to trust and hone his own unique instincts—namely for the sake of protecting passionate people in the world like Kenzo Tenma, he’s so adamant that he will do anything for the innocent and helpless, and it’s possible as a result, he appears to be growing better and better himself without noticing it.
He can be quite the humble and inquisitive man who’s tom-foolish one moment, awkward yet another moment, and powerfully attuned and wistful to so many things the next. He seems to fit the definition of the suggestion, “The people who have laughed the most have experienced the most pain.”
But certainly with his ability to cope, his smarts, and resources he almost has all of the elements needed within him to find all the dragon balls to restore balance to this near lifeless and unbearable void! Oh, if only it were easy to somehow do the same to the annoyingly dark and persistent things such as the Magnificent Steiner like he could do to one very large fish with grace and skill.
At the last moment, he is able to regain something he recognizes as his humanity that some bastards had tried to erase. He is also able to confirm that indeed his emotions have never actually gone—they’re just taking too long to arrive—but better late than never he cries! They have been kept hidden from him in a letter that has never been sent to him before!
At last he opens it, it is such a curious thing! It is the most captivating letter ever; if only he were a poet, he could describe it! If only he could describe it all to everyone he had ever known, especially to his former wife, his son, and his best friend and only friend Kenzo Tenma over a picnic amongst the moon and the stars of the vast and endless universe full of sadness and death yes but also happiness and life…
