Gratua is energetic and vigorous, always rearing to rush into whatever is ahead. She's a shaman, but it's a bumpy path for her. She always wanted to follow in her mother's path as a warrior, but was roped into the career of her father. She's hesitant to use supernatural means to do a job, and would prefer to fight with fists and hammers. She believes in justice and service to her people, and it's made her look beyond the traditional ways of survival of the fittest. She's seen the knights of other cultures and seeks to emulate their ideologies.

Born on Draenor, a nameless child to her somewhat renown parents; forced to prove her worth before she was given a name at all. Her childhood was rife with battles. She struggled to be the strongest, the best all through her adolescence. She made it through the Orcish charnel houses that worm out the weak through brutality, and was a severe and angry child. Her parents celebrated her superiority above her contemporaries, and she was eventually apprenticed to a harsh and unforgiving Shaman who would pit her against harsher and more unforgiving opponents. She gained her surname, Daggermouth, after a particularly vicious trial in which she returned from the pit of battle with her opposing student's jugular between her clenched teeth. Her master admired her tenacity and ferocity, but cared little for her disinterest in sorcery, and would punish her when she took the path that involved her fists.

Late into her adolescence, her mother was challenged to a duel by one of her rivals. The young and nameless Orc watched the battle, and didn't flinch as her own mother was mercilessly torn apart in a battle that outmatched her. Gritting her teeth, the young Orc resumed her studies, but swore a private vengeance against the person who took her mother. And so, years later, she found the male again; drunk and besotted. Gratua allowed him to lead her to his own home, and made him to believe she would mate with him. However, when his body hit the bed, she hefted up his stone hammer above him and brought it down; crushing his head like a melon. She took her mother's name, Gratua, bestowing it upon herself, and carried his hammer as a sign of Revenge.

Gratua came through the portal with the rest of her kin, joining in the wars against Azeroth's people. Drunk on blood and Fel, she let herself become the monster that the Azeroth natives thought they were. Fighting with spell and hammer, she slew numerous humans, and more than a few of her own kind; settling old scores. Eventually she was captured and tossed into the internment camps with the rest of her kin. In the camps, she languished and fell into a deep and painful withdrawal as the Fel slowly seeped out of her. But when she rose out of it, she became the kind of hero that her people needed. She helped band together her kin, and saw that being monsters and ruthless murderers weren't what the Orcs needed.

Eventually, Thrall came calling. She joined with his forces and was in the first legion to take to the seas for Kalimdor. She helped build the new society of the Orcs, and came to see herself as a protectorate of it. Her journeys across Azeroth brought her the stories of Goldrinn, or Lo'Gosh in her own language. She became a devout follower of his ways, and came to wear a Wolf's head hood to symbolize that. In her travels, she met a Knight of Stormwind, and rather than engaging in battle, they spoke and shared a meal. From the Knight, she learned the ideals of honor and justice, and began to ascribe them to herself. Thus was born, the first Knight of Orgrimmar, a title she refers to herself by, and one that has gained her much disdain by many of the Orcs that follow the older ideals.

She travels alone now, often in the form of a spectral wolf, exploring and ensuring the defense of the lands of her people.

Try to never just say, "My character isn't interested in that adventure." A lot of people mistake this for good roleplaying, because you are asserting your character's personality. Wrong. Good roleplaying should never bring the game to a screeching halt. One of your jobs as a player is to come up with a reason why your character would be interested in a plot. After all, your personality is entirely in your hands, not the DM's. Come up with a reason why the adventure (or the reward) might appeal to you, no matter how esoteric or roundabout the reasoning. -(Source)
There aren't Knights of Orgrimmar. Going by the following link;
The equivalent of a Knight is a Stone Guard.

Also, if she's a Knight of Orgrimmar, why is she not associated with Orgrimmar?

"Thus was born, the first Knight of Orgrimmar, a title she refers to herself by, and one that has gained her much disdain by many of the Orcs that follow the older ideals."

Her 'title' is wholly self proclaimed.

Quote:Also, if she's a Knight of Orgrimmar, why is she not associated with Orgrimmar?

Because she isn't in any official capacity.

Quote:Animal Empathy: Journeyman

Can I get an expansion on this? What it means, and what it allows her to do.
[Posting for Micheru, because his connection is being horrible again.]

Animal empathy isn't specifically anything mystic. She's traveled in the form of an animal, and lived like one. She understands the ways of pack dynamics, and has a good understanding of the way a beast thinks. In practice, it would help her tame or befriend wild animals.

Just be mindful of how far you take that animal empathy thing, some connection to animals should be fine in my opinion however taming and keeping a pet, like a hunter, should be left over to the hunters.
