Grondier worked as a personal butler for Renee Deladier in her mansion. Grondier was later shown to be a double agent, spying on Deladier and her criminal enterprise for The Kingpin. After being informed that Deladier was making suprise trip to New York, The Kingpin gave Grondier orders to kill Deladier, and dump her body into the Atlantic Ocean before parachuting out of the plane to safety.

While in flight, Grondier snuck up behind Deladier's chair with the intent of shooting her in the back of the head. However, Deladier, who, at the time, was in possesion of Cloak's Cloak of Darkness, used the Cloak to bind Grondier on the floor. As the Cloak further wrapped around Grondier's body, Deladier revealed that, just as The Kingpin had placed spies in her organization, she had placed spies in his organization, and knew the entire time that Grondier was double crossing her. As soon as she finished explaining this to Grondier, the Cloak procceded to devour his flesh, leaving behind only a skeleton.

The Kingpin was later shown cancelling Grondier's "family death benefits" plan, as a punishment for his failure.
