Grawnk is a pretty socially inept Orc, as evidenced by some of his past experiences. So much of his early life was spent on other endeavors, that the social part of his development never really took place. Despite all of this, Grawnk is actually a romantic at heart, thinking often about the fairer sex. Even though he had always entertained the fantasy of being romantically linked with a woman some day, it was always just that: a fantasy.
Besides a cute Orc girl who spoke to him once when he was ten, Grawnk never had any romantic aspirations…that is, till he met Ghorza gra-Bagol. Ever since crossing into Skyrim, the amount of Orcs Grawnk has seen has been very limited. Ghorza was the first female Orc that he glimpsed in Skyrim, so it was only natural that he fell immediately in love with her. It didn’t hurt that she was a blacksmith either.
So much about Grawnk’s quest is uncertain, so his mind is somewhat conflicted about Ghorza. He knows that if he survives, and does become a bard, that only then will he feel comfortable about approaching Ghorza for her hand in marriage. Well, he’ll need to find that book she’s looking for too. But yes, Grawnk has no objections to marriage, which is surprising, considering his parent’s marriage – and the term “marriage” should be loosely applied there.
However, Grawnk is rather afraid of rejection, even though his bravery has certainly improved since living in Skyrim. No matter what happens, it will be hard for him to let go of his insecurities and confidence issues.
Forgetting all of these potential hindrances and qualifiers, if Grawnk were to find the right woman, children would be a likely next step for him. Because he feels that he was robbed of his childhood in many ways, Grawnk would love nothing more than to give his own children the opportunity to have a chance at a real childhood.
