Being a hero means fighting back even when it seems impossible.


Stanford "Ford" Pines is the author of the infamous Journals and uncle to Dipper and Mabel Pines. He was a scientist who investigated the paranormal, being attracted to the town of Gravity Falls, Oregon for its supposed supernatural activities. Ford would document these bizarre findings within a trilogy of books. One day he got trapped within a portal he made to investigate countless new, and far stranger worlds. Using help from the journals he left behind, Ford's brother Stan was finally able to get him back to our world.
