Biography

Sometime during or prior to 1870, Phineas founded his Roving Museum of Freaks and Hypnotic Hippodrome. During that year, an anachronistic saber-toothed tiger appeared due to the Legends' disruption of the timeline. Recognizing the entertainment value of the creature, Phineas used what funds he had to purchase the tiger and to use it as an attraction for his show. After the Legends appeared to fix the anachronism, Nate Heywood and Ray Palmer accidentally released the tiger while dramatically increasing its size. Phineas was incredibly disheartened when he discovered that the tiger had escaped, as he had planned on using it to drive ticket sales so that he could continue to fund his show. That evening, at a local bar, he remarked to Hildy and another one of his performers that he would most likely have to shut down his circus as a result.[1]
