Phineas Barnum Bruin
From RHJunior Comics Wiki
In the pre-retcon version of the webcomic, called Under the Lemon Tree, certain facts were stated that have not so far been repeated, changed, or made irrelevant in the currently posted version. These include:
- Phineas was Ben's great-uncle, making him a brother of one of Ben's grandparents.
- When Ben was a boy, he was taken to visit his great-uncle a few times. The "funny old man" (Ben's words) let the boy play all he wanted for free on the video games he'd collected.
- Later in his life, Phineas poured most of his wealth into his collections.
- When he died, his estate consisted of little more than his collections. He stipulated in his will that Ben was to receive his now extensive collection of over 1,000 game machines and tables.
