Maximus is the great-grandfather of Max from the 1910s. He along with Sameth win a trip to Egypt and are tasked with retrieving The Devil's Toybox for Anton Papierwaite. Sameth and him succeed, fight off Papierwaite's betrayal, and accidentally get killed by a passing curse in their basement, where Sam and Max find them years later. The only differences between him and Max is that Maximus wears clothes. Unlike his great-grandson, who has a job of sorts, he doesn't seem to do anything more than sneak into theaters and steal ketchup bags from restaurants.
