My wife used to join me in my little skirmishes with them. But she was once at the unfortunate end of one of their shockblades. I swore to avenge her that day.
Grik is of an average stature, with bluish feathers adorning his body. A large yellow beak can be seen, albeit chipped slightly. His orange eyes are also quite noticeable, and he tends to wear simple leather clothing, due to how heavier clothing makes it harder to fly. Grik's weapon of choice is his bow, made of metal due to the volcanic environment he was born in.
Grik usually keeps to himself, and isn't one to talk. He generally only talks when it's absolutely necessary, but when he does, what he says usually makes an impact on those around him. He tends to dislike the capitalist society his people have, and is weary of businessmen because of this.
Grik was born within the volant city of Mag'uran, to two stock brokers. They were often out of the house, leaving him to his own devices. Grik took up archery in his spare time, and his bedroom was usually filled with targets that had arrows embedded into them.
When Grik became older, he decided to perfect his archery skills as part of Mag'uran's military, where he met his wife Calnuzi. The two of them forged a close bond, and eventually decided to settle down and retire.
When the krexxon invaded Ascerth, Grik and Calnuzi decided to take it upon themselves to eliminate them. While initial battles were successful, during one particular conflict, Calnuzi was ambushed and stabbed in the chest by a shockblade. She died in Grik's arms as he cried.
From that point on, Grik would grieve for his wife, hoping to one day murder the monsters that took her from him. When Kaiden and his team arrived in Mag'uran, Grik joined their cause to gain a chance to avenge his wife's death.
- Grik was inspired by Revali, a character from The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild.
- Grik hates spicy food.
