Grok is the Wormwood’s quartermaster, a no-nonsense woman . Grok is a reedy half-orc who favors dark clothing. She carries a perfectly balanced blade and an array of throwing axes hangs from her belt. Grok uses appalling curse words, particularly when drunk. Grok is renowned for being tough, and she doesn’t suffer fools.

Grok and Kroop are good friends and spend many evenings drinking together. Ragnak has managed to gain the friendship of Grok combined with efforts hornyness have broken through Grok’s tough exterior and revealed her softer, feminine side (which she wisely keeps hidden from the rest of the crew). In doing so the group has gained a valuable ally, allowing them to visit the shop late at night and persuade Grok to return certain parts of their equipment while ragnak enjoys the best parts.

Grok is also quite superstitious and follows many of the old traditional maritime beliefs.

Grok and Ragnak have spent some nights on board the Maidens Promise together, moaning and rumbling in the below-decks
