Daniel Davis, a burglar, had some contacts with persons interested in acquiring rare antiquities. Davis contacted Reynolds, a security guard of the Museum of Natural History. One night, Reynolds sabotaged the surveillance system of the Museum, and Davis and his men broke into the Museum, killed some guards, captured some hostages, and started to rob the most ancient and precious artefacts. Davis found the most prized piece of the exhibition, an ancient Macedonian Mask of Death.
While the burglars were stealing the antiquities, Nightwatch spotted them and entered the Museum attacking them. Davis, seeing his men falling, fled, pushing the Mask onto his own face. The Mask stuck on Davis' face, warming his blood and inoculating an archaic balsamic substance in his veins. Daniel Davis died in the pain, leaving only Deathgrin remaining.
