 +
 +====== Appearance ======
 +
 +Greff is a very unique individual on the face of Gaeleth, knowing neither what he is or from where he comes. ​ He is green in color, and waif thin, wearing a topknot long and braided. \\   
 +
 +====== Background ======
 +
 +As a githzerai orphan, Greff spent his formative years being bullied and derided. ​ The only adults in Greff early life were the priests of Whalin that took pity on him and dozens of other orphans. ​ The priests, masters of hand-to-hand combat and the unarmed martial arts, taught all of their pupils these skills to help them discipline their minds. ​ The lessons of early childhood were nearly lost when Greff could take no more, and left the orphanage.
 +
 +Greff grew up on the streets, until he could serve as bouncer and muscle-for-hire in the darker, seedier parts of Teras, Rakore. ​ The small town lived off of fishing, forestry, and the annual flotilla of whalers -- conditions that made life hard and made the lower classes even harder. ​ Greff eventually took to 'wet work' -- assassination -- when his ugly mug and beefy arms were not enough.
 +
 +A long life of drinking, whoring, and other dirty deeds finally caught up with him while he was in his late 30s or early 40s.  Desperate for work in a town where everyone knew his face, and suspected his deeds, he left Teras for Chasadan and answered the call of a mage looking to hire.  There, under Ducal Mage Hershel Kavris, Greff found honor, prestige, and dedication.
 +
 +Greff took over operations of an orc bar in Teras, and renamed it the Green Fist Tavern. ​ The bar manager, Whiteskull, keeps Greff appraised of the situation, finances, and the like.  Through the Green Fist Tavern, Greff helped many of the orcs in Teras become a respectable force, earning them positions in the city's Guard.
 +
 +====== Character ======
 +
 +Greff spent several decades living the rough life.  Beginning in 1332 when he started working for Meridian Explorations,​ he finally learned what real loyalty, honor, and duty were.  As the Primary Team Leader for Meridian Explorations,​ he has earned the respect of nobles and even the King of Rakore. ​ He did more dangerous work in a month with ME than a decade'​s skulldrudgery accomplished,​ and came out of that month with wealth, respect, and a newfound sense of belonging.
 +
 +He is intensely loyal to '​his'​ orcs, and to ME, having finally learned to reign his temper in.  He is still a deadly individual to face, still ugly as can be, but in his travels he is learning restraint. ​ He has also developed a true appreciation for drink; rather than just getting drunk, he has learned to make and understand what goes into good drink. ​ He has begun keeping a log of all the places he has been and the unique drinks available there, with the hopes of creating an alcohol empire.
