Ghown – An odourless, underground-dwelling creature that lives in the Warrens. It burrows into rock walls, then spits lines of stringy adhesive out into the tunnels to trap unwary travelers, after which it will climb all over them, eating parasites and leaving behind sticky trails that harden on gru'Esh carapaces. Ghowns are harmless but annoying, and the gru'Esh consider the residue of a ghown trail to be a mark of dishonor upon a clumsy traveler.
g’Nharr – Clan leader of the an’Esh, second tribe of the gru’Esh.
Governor – Title given to the administrator of Ta'ar.
Grand Amputor – The highest rank in the Valang military.
Gravog – A Plains predator. Their thin, lithe bodies hover over the ground, then they use their black-and-orange striped legs to launch them towards their prey, which they catch with dual, pronged horns. Gravog hunt in packs and are extremely dangerous.
Great Migration – The movement of the gru'Esh people from the western deserts to the Plains of Tranthaea.
gru’Esh – This species lives in a huge network of underground tunnels and caverns known as the Warrens. The gru’Esh are about eight feet tall with thick, armoured carapaces. They have two shoulder-arms with four fingers each, and two chest-arms, which end in three claws. Their chest-arms can also act as legs if they lower their usually vertical upper bodies to lie horizontally above the ground. Their four other legs then become six as they scurry up and down the rock and dirt walls and ceilings of their underground world. They are nearly blind after living so long in the dark, but have a heightened sense of smell so that they can even sense vibrations around them, like scuffing feet or pumping blood. The gru’Esh were once underwater inhabitants, but after years of living on land they have adapted to their new environment.
There are four Tribes in gru’Esh society: the grey-coloured po’Esh, the red an’Esh, the black je’Esh, and the brown ka’Esh. Each Tribe is led by a Clan Leader and they meet periodically in a Congress that often ends in violence. Each Tribe is its own gender and can only mate with certain other Tribes, making any meeting a fiercely competitive event.
