Curse of the Crimson Throne - Gaiscioch
Grau was a lean man, with packets of steely muscle on his well-honed physique. He was always clean shaven, with bright piercing green eyes. When Zoetica found him, he was a mess – he hadn’t changed his uniform in weeks and reeked of stale sweat and ale. Now that he’s back with the Guard, he’s back to his old self again.
Grau fled a troubled family life in Sandpoint and became the student of Vencarlo Orisini when he tried unsuccessfully to pick his pocket. He became one of Vencarlo’s best students, as did a girl he was interested in – Sabina Merrin. Eventually, a three-way confrontation of frustration and misunderstandings erupted between the three, with Grau successfully engineering a duel between Orisini and Sabina, a duel that resulted in the loss of two of Orisini’s fingers and a scar on Sabina’s cheek. Sabina left the school, and when Orisini discovered Grau’s hand in the events, expelled him in a rare rage.
He then went on to become a member of the Korvosan Guard, rising to the ranks of a Watch Sergeant. The death of the King and the resulting rioting hit Grau pretty hard, and he lost faith and left his post. The party helped him get back on track and he’s back with the Guard.
