Skrag the Slaughterer

Skrag the Slaughterer is the legendary Prophet of the Great Maw also known as the Gore-Harvester and the Maw-that-Walks. [3a]

History

Skrag the Slaughterer was initially a respected Slaughtermaster under the Arch-Tyrant Bron Rockgrinder. However, he made a mistake of slaughtering and cooking the Tyrant's pet Gnoblar, a crime for which he lost his hands which were devoured by Bron and who ordered his cauldron chained to his back. [3a]

After that, Skrag was banished into the same warpstone labyrinths that the future Gorgers are thrown at birth. He was expected to provide a solid meal for the degenerated creatures, but, as unlikely as it seemed, he was ferocious enough for the Gorgers to accept him. As soon as he gained their trust, he arranged them into an army and butchered the Rockgrinder and his entire tribe for the sake of the Great Maw. An offering this large didn't go in vain and he became a Prophet of the Great Maw, a living avatar of its ghastly will.[1][3a]

Being a Prophet of the Ogre God of gluttony, he has an almost unrivalled authority and thus often musters Ogre hordes for war. He will usually take some younger Butchers as his apprentices, allowing the horde to really benefit from the Maw's powers, and he will invariably summon his Gorger allies, the unexpected numbers of ferocious half-beasts breaking the hostile army's back.[2]

Quotes

You don't want to look 'im in the eye Bolgut. Trust me on that. I saw 'im at the Battle of Blood Rock and it weren't pretty. Skrag was all whirlin' cleavers, surrounding by a red mist. Chunks of flesh and bone were flyin' everywhere. 'Ee went through them Elves like a Sabretusk through a bag of Gnoblars.

~ Gorg Three-fingers, Ogre Maneater. [4a]
