Grimloq's Backstory

Post by Grimloq »

Grimloq is just the much the product of his two vastly different parents as he is the trajedy that befell them. The Grackle Tooth grew up in a small, relatively peaceful valley on the border of the Lone Star state and the New Frontier.

His mother was a woman of the lands, growing up in a peaceful period for her family as herders and hunters. Grimloqs father was a mercenary who was originally trained by the Coalition as part of a suicide kill-squad. They met when Grimloqs father was sent on a routine mission to clear out a designated area of locals. When he arrived, he found the first example of a peaceful Grackle settlement he had ever come across. The locals would have perished if Grimloqs father had not turned on his own squad that day, killing them and vowing to protect the tribe as long as he could. He eventually found Grimloqs mother, a healer and herder of the tribe and they married, bearing one child.

Growing up, Grimloq learned how to shoot and fight from his father and how to interact with animals from his mother. she introduced him to the baby dinosaurs hatching in her mother’s pens and he learned how they all could be worked with and trained if given enough time and patience. One young Dinosaur bonded with Grimloq almost immediately. The two became rather inseparable.Grimloq named the young beast Thumper even though the dinosaur was small, she quickly began to grow into her name.

Grimloqs peaceful childhood lasted until his 14th year. He spent most of his time hunting with Thumper and his father or helping his mother with her animals. One fateful day, the Coalition caught up to Grimloqs father. They struck without warning and without discretion. It was only by his father’s quick thinking and self-sacrifice that Grimloq and Thumper survived the onslaught. Left alone and destitute, Grimloq used all the skills he was taught to flee the coalition's kill teams. He ended up in the deep forests west of the Coalition states, where few bothered to travel.

Twenty years passed and the young Grackle became a well-honed part of the forest. Along with Thumper, who was growing exponentially compared to her companion, the two fell into a comfortable, if rather dangerous life. They would find a suitable grotto or cave to claim as home and hunt nearby wildlife for food. As the seasons and migrations changed, they would pick up and find a new camp in a new valley or wood.
The trappers were more of a surprise than the loggers, but they both arrived around the same time as each other. The trappers came in and killed or scared away all the threatening fauna before the loggers arrived, setup shop, and mowed everything down. One tracker caught Thumpers trail and tracked her back to their current camp. Assuming they were tracking a single dinosaur, the trappers were ill prepared to face Grimloq as well. Half of the trapper team did not survive the first encounter, and the rest fled back to camp. Grimloq and Thumper easily followed their trail.

What they found was a scene of torture and useless neglect from the eyes of the Grackle Tooth. Cages upon Cages were filled with dinosaurs and other vicious beasts, captured and waiting to be transported to who knows where. The animals were angry, malnourished and kept under control via electrical stimulation and sedative. Grimloq was a seasoned tracker and hunter, but he always used his prey. He never caged them just to cage them. He had kept a few animals to farm and train, but his mobile lifestyle always meant he had to leave them behind eventually. The disregard for the caged animals’ lives threw Grimloq into a rage, something Thumper was happy to follow Grimloq into.

Grimloq and Thumper killed every single trapper in the camp, freeing all the beasts that they could. During the fight, Grimloq had happened to witness one of the caged dinosaurs get free and attack the trappers along side Thumper. Seeing that inspired Grimloq. After the battle, Grimloq dismantled his camp and raided the trappers camp for every piece of useful gear he could strap to Thumpers back. Thus began a protracted guerilla war on the Trappers and their allies. Grimloq would use the invader sown gear against them, knowing the terrain and wildlife better than his enemies. He also began weaponizing the local fauna. One or two at first, but he would wrangle and stable a raptor for a number of months, training it in very basic attack patterns and tactics, then release it back into the wild.

Grimloqs machinations did not prove that useful immediately, but as new boots began to arrive in the forest replacing those Grimloq had already dealt with, they found themselves sorely underprepared for the increasingly militarized wildlife. The Grackle tooth began to slowly push the encroachers out of the forest. Grimloq soon found himself at the edge of his wild domain, looking upon the edge of civilized farmlands- something he had not seen in nearly three decades.

Sitting upon Thumper, fully armed and flush with the adrenaline of battle, Grimloq decided to press forward. He never looked back. He always stayed close to the forests, and never struck the same location twice. Stealing from farmhouses and ransacking livestock operations was fun, but soon people began to take note. Bounties were placed. Attention was gained.

Grimloq had always taken kindly to the other D-Bees he came across in pillaging, aiding them when he could and avoiding them when he couldn’t He soon found a few like minded bandits and spent a number of years raiding the western Coalition states.

A life like his however leads to a short life expectancy and one by one, all of Grimloqs allies have either been captured or killed, all but Thumper. Alone and hunted, the two headed East. Apparently, a city-state in the area welcomed anyone willing to keep their head down. So Grimloq and Thumper rode East, to MercTown…
