The Goff warlord Grukk is a ten-foot brute of muscle and rage. His physical presence alone makes him an intimidating sight, and underneath his scarred and pockmarked skin lies a body as hard as iron. Even when unarmed he is a terrifying sight. When he dons his monstrous power klaw, Grukk becomes practically unstoppable. It’s a well-known fact that Grukk will fly into a berserk fury whenever his temper reaches its limit, and it doesn’t take much to set him off. He once trashed an entire settlement purely because a grot attendant spilt engine oil on his breakfast.
As a younger Ork, Grukk killed Krugg the Tyrant, Warboss of his tribe, to seize power for himself. While such leadership challenges are par for the course in Ork society, the utter brutality of the battle and the spectacular fashion in which Grukk finished his old rival gave rise to the nickname ‘face-rippa’ (literally defacing the face of the boss using his own power klaw, which later Grukk claimed for himself). Though the Orks of Grukk’s tribe would never admit it, they are all a bit scared of Grukk, and rightly so. No one wants to lose face in front of his mates, after all. Grukk’s power klaw is a howling, whining beast of a thing. It features a kustom buzz-saw that Grukk uses to live up his nickname as often as he can. It also magnifies his strength from merely impressive to utterly terrifying.
