First off, it’s really odd applying today’s prompt to Grawnk. Of course, it’s odd period thinking about Grawnk’s history at all. When I first started this blog last February, it was just going to be my version of The Elder Strolls, and not go into Grawnk’s history or anything like that. I guess I just grew too fond of the guy to not flesh him out a little more.
Concerning sex, I really don’t think Grawnk ever had the opportunity. He’s a male, so it’s not like he wasn’t interested, but any potential mates in the stronghold were much more into the Orcs that weren’t skin and bones, and constantly reading books. This bothered Grawnk for many years, but eventually he came to accept it, and after that, it rarely crossed his mind at all. He had other pursuits to occupy his mind.
Since Grawnk has never, for the lack of a better word, “courted” anyone, there are no examples to point to his romantic side. However, he has read enough books so that he has a better notion than most of what true romance is. Ironically, the books that taught Grawnk about romance also partly kept Grawnk from experiencing it in the stronghold. He knows that should he ever find someone who will reciprocate his feelings, she will be the recipient of all his backlogs of romantic ideas.
