P. B. Winterbottom is a dastardly fellow. He gives not a thought to the havoc he has brought to Bakersburg. Winterbottom's sole passion is pinching pies, and he is unconcerned by the destruction he causes as he pilfers. Not a single pie will escape his grasp (or his jaws), consequences be damned. To make matters worse, this pastry thief encountered a mysterious Chronoberry Pie, which grants him the ability to shift himself in time, creating temporal clones that aid Winterbottom in his felonious feats.
