Grunk was young when his clans only raiding ships engine fizzled and broke. Having a higher intelligence than many orcs he knew that the secret to mechanics was to simply ‘hit it’, in doing so he started up the engine and was hailed as Grunk Bigfix, until the clan lost interest and went to pillage and raid neighbouring planets.
He began fixing odds and ends for his clan but wanting and craving the recognition he deserved for his ingeniousness he headed off for the nearest town. He found it hard to rustle up any clients till a Dwarven mining ship landed in need of repair. He stomped aboard and began to ‘work’ much to the Dwarves angry protests until in amazement they see that he has worked a miracle, it is fixed.
Grunk travelled on that ship till he grew bored and tired of the day to day toll. Hearing of the FEF academy he decided to enrol, his unprecedented strength and somewhat ‘unique’ intimidation techniques allowed him to graduate as the Chief Operations Officer.
Now he hopes to find adventure and maybe a hammer or two.
