Right, listen up, if you have ale, then you have a friend in Grog Strongjaw. A goliath of towering height in size, this barbarian has an appetite for the two great loves in his life - combat, women and ale. Wait...
Easily the brains of the group, Grog is often consulted for his vast knowledge of shapes, colours and shiny things. Also, ale.
In his early years, armed with his two-handed greataxe, Grog often joined, proving his might, amongst the ranks of his family's wandering herd. But after coming upon an unsuspecting elderly gnome in the woods, he objected to the killing of such an innocent life. A creature of impulse, Grog felt only pity for this terrifying little thing. His disobedience cost him dearly: beaten bloody and banished by the herd leader - his uncle Kevdak - Grog was abandoned and left to die. Exiled from his herd, it was then that the relative of the very gnome he fought to save saved him. It was the kindness of a gnome cleric named Pike that healed Grog, bringing him back from death's edge. And they have remained close friends ever since.
Most nights, Grog can be found challenging entire taverns to wrestling matches... or accompanying Scanlan to the nearest house where you pay for lady favours. Oh, also ale.
