Grendolynn was born into a small mixed tribe of hobgoblins and goblins that made its home in the forests along the East Sellen River in southern borderlands of Brevoy. She was raised in the typical hobgoblin fashion, a militaristic upbringing where she was shown much cruelty and violence. 'Might makes right' was the motto of her childhood. In her eighth year, the winter was particularly harsh and many of the tribe died of hunger or cold. Just as spring was beginning to show it's first signs, the tribe was attacked by a mating pair of Owlbears, ravenous from the long winter. In their weakened state, they were unable to resist the massive predators, who slaughtered the tribe's warriors and scattered its people. Grendolynn found herself alone in the forests, lost and with no food. Without anyone to tell her what to do she just began to walk. After three days, she was starving and exhausted. She stumbled down a game trail, directly into a hunter's snare trap.
Finding herself hanging by the ankles and unable to escape she began to cry and wail piteously. An older human man came by after some time, and was shocked to see her there. Quickly cutting her down, he took her back to his cabin and cared for her. She found out his name was Donnovan Black and that he worked as a trapper in these forests. Fortunately, he spoke the goblin tongue and was able to hear her story. He told her that she needn't worry and that she could stay with him. So she did, living with Donnovan and learning the ways of men. He taught her to hunt and trap, and to fight with shield and sword. He comforted her when the other humans mocked or ostracized her. In many ways he became her father.
One day as they were in Restov selling their furs, she heard that the Sword Lords were "Looking to re-open the old trade routes along the rivers and scatter or defeat the bandits who have made them too dangerous to use. Beyond that, it seems they want to encourage new nations to grow in this region." Immediately excited by this news she hurriedly finished her business and rushed back to the inn. When she told Donnovan of the call, he seemed like he had been expecting something like this for a while. He told her that he was proud of her, and that she should go out into the world and see it. Saying he was an old man, and unlikely to have much use for it, he gave her his old hand-and-a-half sword and their only horse, Bella. She packed what gear she had and prepared to set out. As she was leaving Donnovan pressed a fat sack of gold into her hand and told her to be careful, before hugging her tightly and stepping back, tears brimming in his smiling eyes.
