WarDragon's Way of the Wicked
Grumblejack is an ogre freed from Branderscar Prison by the Nessian Knot during their escape. Fairly smart and likable for an ogre, he seems grateful to the Knot for saving him, apparently regarding them as his new tribe, at least for the time being. He has small horns on his head, which may hint at a mixed heritage. Grumble has a superstitious dread of magic, and is greatly impressed by Puella’s witchcraft, and fears Cardinal Thorn.
In the Horn of Abbadon, Grumblejack complained of dizziness and great thirst when he entered the Sanctum of Vetra-Kali. When Puella and Lucavi gave him a drink of the unholy water from the altar, his slight fiendish heritage blossomed, transforming him into a half-fiend. He continues to serve the Knot, thanking them for his transformation.

Grumblejack’s great joy in life is smacking people with his gigantic morningstar. He does so whenever he can, though he does enjoy unleashing his new magical powers before entering melee. Since he gained the power of flght, he loves to swoop in and smash “little’uns” into pulp. Grumblejack’s flight is supernatural until his wings grow in.
