Grund are a thick and powerful species that serve as the brute strength of the Marauders. They often rely on their brawn to make up for their lack of brains. They are also fearless, ferocious fighters - perfect enforcers for captains who need to motivate their crews. Although not common, Grund that become captains are feared for their tempers and their barbarism.
The Grund's large, humanoid shapes resemble large ursine predators such as girrok, except that they walk on two legs - and are as pink-skinned and hairless as girrok are furry. Believed to have evolved in an icy ocean environment the Grund tend toward the blubbery side, but all that fat conceals powerful muscles and strength well above the human average.
