In the Matoran Universe Gringat lived on the Island of Poliaz, working as a weaponsmith for the Matoran Guard.
When Teridax took over the Mata-Nui robot and it's population migrated to Spherus Magna Gringat was involved in the construction of, and later lived in the City of Korrothis.
After some unfortunate involvement in gangland activities and substance abuse Gringat began travelling with a caravan of matoran and agori of various crafts and earned his stay selling various tools and weapons he made. He soon became friends with a matoran by the name of Shadow
In his spare time he would tinker with various machines and found he had a knack for inventing, so he travelled back to Korrothis to set up Gringatronics. Business went well and he had many defense contracts, with Grigatronics becoming famous across Spherus Magna he lived a life of luxury.
One day an idea popped into his head: a flying city. He became completely obsessed with it and over three years he designed various engines and systems to bring Korrothis to the clouds. But even with all his wealth from Gringatronics funding it himself was not enough, so he proposed his plans to the Spirit of Air showing various blueprints and claiming a flying city would be be the perfect home to a being of her stature and it would be a monument to her power. The Spirit of Air agreed to back his outlandish scheme and work began immediately.
The project brought an economic boom to Korrothis, many coming to see the city that was going to fly. Locals took advantage of the new customers and Korrothis became a symbol of power and wealth.
Unfortunately The Spirit of Air did not live to see the flyng city completed as she was killed by Darkon's spies during his revolt.
She passed her powers onto Gringat so that when his flying city was completed he would be the one to rule it.
