The Fellowship of Hope
Grent is just about the kindest person you could ever meet, but his gruesome appearance makes it difficult for most to notice. He is quite strong and very protective of the innocent.
Grent grew up in an orphanage in the city of Tanetai. He was the product of an orcish warrior raping a human woman after a raid on her home village somewhere in between The Cindors and The Marches. She carried him and died in childbirth, leaving Grent all alone in this world. His upbringing was understandable difficult as it was hard for him to make friends. Once in a while he would find someone who would seemingly befriend him, but usually it was for some ulterior motive or to set him up to be teased for being half-orcish.
When Grent was of age, he enlisted in the Tanetai infantry. Just after his basic training, he went out to the local tavern with three other graduates. His fellow graduates got a little too friendly with a local woman who was clearly not welcoming their advances. After warning his friends to stop, they continued and Grent came to the defense of the woman. He nearly beat the three other men to death, but was left with a vicious scar across the left side of his face, thus furthering the difficulty he has always had in social situations.
