There were four [[AnthropomorphicPersonification gods]]- of the sun, the twin moons, and the earth respectively. They created these planets, and possibly the first seeds of life.

At some point- I'm not sure how, though the Grim might have played a part- the earth god and one of the moon gods were attacked, and severely injured if not outright killed. This damaged their respective creations; the attacked moon/god shattered, fraying away over time. The earth god fell to the land it had created, its corpse falling into the ocean and creating a new continent. Its bones were lodged deep within this dragon's corpse/continent; these bones were filled with mystical power- magic beyond any humanity possessed. Eventually, humanity moved to this continent (or was born there, your pick) and colonized it.

Humans dug up these bones, and called them Dust. They learned that by combining Dust with weaponry, the weapons that emerged were stronger, their nature intertwined with the earth's elements.

The soul of the god was also shattered, but did not move as far. It fled into the minds and souls of those people inhabiting the continent, and gave them +5 to weaponry and smithing-related skills...well, no, not really, but it did something like that. So empowered, these people were able to defend against Grim as they never had before, birth of civilization as we know it, blah blah, Academies, blah, teenagers being awesome.

Meanwhile, the sun dragon was observing this, and decided to empower its own people to protect itself against whatever attacked the other gods (It chose mundane humans on a different continent to ensure that their power relied on the sun dragon and so they would never betray it). The sun's people were given inborn fire powers. The two different races met up, established more civilization, were able to marginalize the Grim's presence on two continents, and several centuries/decades later, we have Yang, adopted (possibly) into an earth-dwelling family, and Ruby, who is awesome enough to make an insanely complex gun-scythe while still young, and probably has some innate relation to [[SomethingAboutARose the wood element.]]

* If this is true, then Ruby and Yang are not biologically related. If the theories about Yang being the LGBT are true and this is also true...

[[WMG: The Maidens are a form of Grimm]]
This one is based on the Silver-Eyed Warrior's power. Allegedly, the Silver-Eyed Warrior's gaze can destroy Grimm, but we also know that it's particularly effective against the Maidens. So there's probably a connection there.

I've decided that Crimson must be {{Maleficent}}. Why? Fire-based magic, dragon-wing tattoo...

[[WMG:The Grimm are extremely [[TheEmpath empathic]].]]
They hate humanity because negative emotions are physically painful for them. The younger, mindless Grimm (such as Beowulfs) instinctually lash out by trying to stop the source of the negativity (explaining why they attack people), while the older, wiser Grimm (such as Goliaths) realise that killing one person will just bring more people, who will not only assault them with anger, but try to kill them. The oldest Grimm [[spoiler:or whatever Salem is]] see humanity and the Faunus as the source of their pain, unintentionally causing it as a result of having personalities and individuality, and thus desire to either kill everyone, or turn them into emotionless husks.

Of course, some of the older Grimm are either spiteful, and thus attack even though it might cause them more pain, or strategic, and try to reduce humanity's numbers whenever it's safe to do so (especially when they know their only opponents are relatively untrained, and should theoretically be easy victims).

[[WMG: The Schnee Corporation has unwittingly helped create the Grimm.]]
It definitely has a reputation of corruption. Perhaps the anger directed at it contributed to the outpouring of Grimm? There ''was'' a statue of the snake Ren fought back in the first volume in their foyer, after all.

[[WMG: The Grimm will have much more plot relevance eventually.]]
Whatever it is the Grimm are, they are unquestionably much more than just a faceless horde of disposable mooks. The very existence of larger Grimm (like the Goliaths or the Dragon Grimm) already hint that there is something greater behind the Grimm. Whether this be Salem, or someone else, they are are clearly set up to be developed further, a la the Zerg Swarm from Starcraft 2. They might have a hive mind controlling them. They might have another form of overall leader. Or maybe they actually can be divided themselves amongst themselves into their own factions, headed by various high-level Grimm. Drawing off the Zerg analogy mentioned previously, perhaps they could be divided into different 'broods' of Grimm, and they could very well have a situation like there was in Brood War with a single faction (possibly Salem, or maybe someone else) seeking to unite the entire Grimm race under a single 'brood'. Of course, this goes without saying that this is all just mere speculation on what could happen later on in canon RWBY.
