Gorruk was born to a Half Orc whore, who worked for one of the most infamous houses of ill-repute in the Free City of Greyhawk. Normally a child born of such circumstances would be sold into slavery and that would be that. In Gorruk’s case the proprietor saw an opportunity that would be much more lucrative then the one time profit of selling him into slavery.
At first, Gorruk was rented out to satiate the dark and terrible desires of the most depraved and indecent patrons of the pleasure house. When he grew too “old’ for that; he was put to apprentice with his mother who was considered the pleasure house’s “odd job” specialist; no request was too taboo for ol’ Gorruks’ mom. (and after a time, for Gorruk himself)
Gorruk developed a reputation for his skill of pleasuring ALL MANNER of creatures with his mouth; No being was too deformed, no anatomy too strange, no creature was too long dead for Gorruk not to ply his skills upon it.
For many moons Gorruk and his mom were the pleasure houses biggest earners, and it was said that he was both father and brother to 3 of his mother’s children. (Thankfully, all of which were so deformed upon birth that they did not live long). It was sometime after the birth of the 3rd child that Gorruk’s mother died of a rotting disease. After the death of his mother, Gorruk poured all his efforts into performing stranger and more depraved acts, in order to maintain his reputation.
It was one of these performances that provoked a scandal that rocked the Free City of Greyhawk’s political class, brought ruin and infamy to the pleasure house and nearly cost Gorruk his life as well.
There was a popular mid- level politician who had become very fond of Gorruk’s skill set. A political rival of this man, found out this information and used it to bring ruin to him. He bribed the city watch to interrupt the “festivities” in order to embarrass his rival and cost him the election. (That was the plan anyway) What happened that night is still spoken of in hushed tones; it would seem that the city guardsmen entered upon a scene of ungodly debauchery; it is said that the politician in question was covered in grey ooze, performing carnal acts with Gorruk, three dire wolves, a satyr, a couple zombies, an owl bear and a half dozen leprechauns. The city guards were so revolted by the goings-on that they just started to kill everything in the room.
When they came to Gorruk, he played upon his half-orc nature and in broken common tongue, begged and pleaded with the guards for his life whilst defecating and urinating on himself to lend credibility to his story of being a simpleton who was “forced” into these acts. It being widely known as bad luck to kill those lame of mind the guards took him to the edge of the city and told Gorruk if he ever returned he would be imprisoned.
Without the pleasure house, Gorruk had no idea what to do so he decided to ply his trade up and down the coastline to earn some gold in order to create some options. After being robbed and severely beaten by a bunch of pirates he serviced, Gorruk awoke to find himself in a monastery. The monks took pity upon him and invited Gorruk to join the order.
Gorruk failed miserably at all of the scholastic pursuits that the monks assigned to him but he seemed to excel at the martial training, especially at grappling. Gorruk had an unorthodox grappling style that crept the other monks out quite a bit. The elder monks quickly graduated Gorruk to be rid of him.
After graduation Gorruk has made a living by selling his fighting skills to guard various caravans and every year on his mother’s name day; Gorruk sells the skills he learned so well from his mom to make a cooper or two.
For those of you at home who are thinking damn, what is going on here. It should be known that this is my “Motivational Bio” created for my players who fail to create a Bio of their own.
