Groller is a brute of a man. He is tall, standing well over 7-feet. Although he is ugly by most human standards, Groller has inherited few of his ogre parents characteristics. He wears varying shades of brown, usually dirty and stained from his travels.


Groller is the only surviving member of his family, all of whom were killed by a green dragon, an attack which cost him his hearing. Like many other half-breeds, Groller often finds fitting in difficult and took to a life on the open waters as a sailor.

Groller found he had quite an aptitude for life on the open waters and travelled far and wide before hooking up with the Ergothian mariner Rig Mer-Kel and his first mate, Shoan. The three formed an unlikely friendship, which continued even after Rig and Shoan joined with the dwarf, Jasper Fireforge and afflicted kender, Blister Nimblefingers, as the Heroes of the Heart.

Groller's constant companion though is the red wolf, Fury. Fury is fanatically loyal to Groller, and travels everywhere with him.
