Hiram Flaversham was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, on September 2, 1862, to Malcolm Flaversham and his wife Kayley. Hiram was a very well-mannered child indeed, always offering to share his toys with his big brother Nathaniel and big sisters Leesha and Miriam & acting on his best behavior. Paxton Flaversham was a master toymaker, & Hiram was fascinated by his father's craft. At the age of 22, shortly after graduating from Edinburgh College with a degree in Toymaking, Hiram, Ntahniel, Leesha, & Miriam bid "goodbye" to their parents, & left for London in 1884, where they moved to separate locations. Hiram set up his toymaking shop, & soon, he had enough money to support himself & his young girlfriend Virginia, whom he met about a year after moving to London. Hiram & Virginia fell deeper & deeper in love, until finally, in fall of 1889, Hiram proposed to her at one of Queen Mousetoria’s royal balls. A delighted Karen said “yes”, & the two were wed, having 2 daughters, Ardenand Olivia (who was born 3 years after Arden), whom Hiram watched over after Virginia was killed in a tragic accident 2 years after their marriage.
For a while after his wife’s death, Hiram fell into a deep depression that took another year to get out of. Finally, in early 1896, Hiram reopened his store, & started making toys again (with the help of Arden and Olivia).
On June 19, 1897, after 8-year-old Arden ran away from home, Hiram had been a single father for over a year, & now he was celebrating Olivia’s 5th birthday on his own. The event wasn’t bitter, however—Olivia & her dad had a marvelous day together. However, that night, after Olivia had opened Hiram’s present, a demonic fiend, Fidget, burst inside the toy shop, whisking the toymaker away. Olivia looked all over the city for her father, but in vain...
...not knowing that he had been kidnapped by Professor Ratigan, the World’s Greatest Criminal Mind, & forced to build a robot clone of Queen Mousetoria with his marvelous inventing skills. Under the threat that his daughter would die if he didn’t do as the young crime lord requested, Hiram had no choice but to partake in this “monstrous” scheme, against his will.
Hiram spent a whole night & day working on the Mousetoria robot, until his work was suddenly interrupted...when Olivia was taken to his prisoner’s cell! Hiram immediately went to embrace his daughter, but just as soon as he had wrapped his arms around her, Olivia was dragged away & stuffed into a big green bottle. Hiram was once again threatened with his daughter’s life, & he soon got back to work.
About an hour later, Hiram had finished with the robot, & had given it to Ratigan, who put it in a giant box. Hiram was just about to get Olivia out of the bottle, when suddenly, he was bound & gagged, & dragged into a great big dirigible. Hiram couldn’t bear to watch as he floated further & further away from his daughter...
The next thing Hiram knew, he was in Buckingham Palace, operating the Mousetoria robot as it ordered the thug-guards to arrest the real Queen, who was immediately carried down the hall. Hiram then went behind the stage in the palace’s auditorium, where the robot—via his speaking device—addressed to thousands of mice that she would be abdicating the throne & marrying Ratigan, who came out in sparkling robes & jewels.
Just then, Hiram felt a little arm tugging on his coat sleeve. He turned around to find Olivia jumping into his arms & hugging him! Father & daughter embraced for what seemed like forever, as Olivia’s new friends, Basil & Dr. Dawson, helped Queen Mousetoria, now free, tie up the thugs with rope. Just then, Basil came out, & picked a fight with Ratigan. Soon, everyone joined in, including Hiram. The micefolk were so busy rebelling against the thugs that they didn’t notice Fidget break free & kidnap Olivia once again.
Hiram, Basil, & Dawson immediately went outside & constructed a hot-air balloon, which they used to follow Ratigan. After a lengthy battle on the top of Big Ben, Olivia, Hiram, & Arden were reunited once more, & after a lengthy trip to Scotland, moved in with Basil & Dawson to start a new life after Hiram’s toymaking business began to fail.
Now, when he’s not living with his extended family at Lower 221B Baker Street, Hiram can still be seen working at his toy shop, which has managed to stay in business.
As one of Mouse London’s most beloved toymakers, Hiram Flaversham is a most kind & gentle sort, always wanting to share his gifts with the world & make friends with everyone he meets. The jolly, youthful, red-haired benevolent enjoys the company of children, & will do anything to see them smile, especially his beloved daughters Olivia and Arden. A sunny optimist, he views the world through rose-tinted glasses & faces any challenges that come along with a cheerful grin.
Though very defensive over certain things & ever eager to speak his mind, Hiram is even-tempered & overly calm in the heat of passion; he only uses his excellent fighting skills to defend the lives of his family, friends, & himself. This good-natured toymaker is a noble spirit, with the heart of a knight, the wisdom of a monk, & the happy qualities of a clown. All of these characteristics earn Hiram a place in the hearts of his family, as well as the many rodents of London.
Hiram Flaversham is a most harmless mouse, & may be approached without caution.
Industrious, merry, caring, watchful.
