- Benjamin, his wife and their two children were murdered in their Finchley home in 2011 over a supposed mortgage dispute. The truth of the story was much more sinister. They were murdered as collateral damage for a debt his father-in-law owed to an underground crime organization.
- Due to the magic of a crow, who possessed the power to bring back the wrongfully slain to bring justice to those who had wronged them, Benjamin was brought back a year after his death. His objective was to find out who murdered his family and bring them to justice. Upon completion of this mission, he was given a choice to return to the afterlife with his family or get a ‘restart’ to live as a mortal once more.
- The crime organization responsible for his death, as well as countless others, specialized in loan sharking, illegal sports betting, illegal gambling, murder for hire and drug trafficking. They had branches in several smaller cities outside of Manchester, London and Bristol. Benjamin destroyed the entire London branch and put the Manchester & Bristol branches out of business with most of their members in prison.
- As Ben chose to live again, he is a living, breathing human being. He isn’t a zombie or a member of the undead. He is just plain old mortal.
- Ben, his wife and children are buried in Manchester next to his parents Douglas & Deborah.
