Splinter was once a regular rat until he was mutated for a secret project called "Renaissance", where he a mutagen injected into his body by scientists Eric Sacks and Dr. O'Neil alongside four baby box turtles named Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael, and Michelangelo, which caused his intelligence to increase.

When appeared that Splinter and the Turtles were doomed, Dr. O'Neil's daughter April, who had caring for the Splinter and the Turtles, came and rescued them. Although Splinter could not speak at the time, his intelligence was increased faster than the Turtles and he was grateful for April did for them as she released them in to the sewers for their protection.
