Summarized Personal Lore

After being exiled from her clan for personal and political reasons (she was shunned for taking a non-gnoll mate, and was seen as too much of a threat by the existing leadership for showing signs of Ankha's call), she was nomadic for many years. She survived mostly on mercenary work, as thieving was beyond her skill-set and no tradesman or artisan would take her as an apprentice. Over time, she grew in strength and knowledge, eventually joining the, "Horde of 1000 Faces." Though she originally had misgivings about joining any group after being a nomad for so long, she eventually made peace with the idea. She figured it would be an excellent opportunity to raid, pillage, and kill, just like in her old clan days. She was right.

After about one Horde Year, she was well and truly called by her patron goddess, Ankha. She initially assumed Ankha would not accept her because of her former clan's rejection of her partner, but this fear was unfounded. After performing the ritual of the gnarled root (and solidifying her bond with Ankha), she was given her clan name of, "Gnarlhyde." The name was derived from both the gnarled root, and her apprehension about joining the Clan of the Blind Star (hence, "hyde"). Joining the clan had two profound effects on Gnarlhyde: it brought her intimately close with her patron goddess, thereby granting her immense knowledge and awakening her magical ability, and also drove her just a little bit mad. Over the years, this has manifested as occasionally erratic behavior, use of the "gnarled root," / hallucinogens, and a deep-seeded desire to scheme, bordering on paranoia (e.g. to have a back-up plan for her back-up plan).

Since then, Gnarlhyde has helped welcome other gnolls into the Clan of the Blind Star. Though the clan's power structure is diffuse by design (all are touched by Ankha, and all work to preserve and grow gnoll strength in preparation for the end times), Gnarlhyde is often referred to as the, "den mother," because of her age and experience. This serves as her driving motivation: to fulfill Ankha's vision of destruction through any means necessary. This also causes her to travel often, so as to provide aid whenever possible to other gnolls (except to Clan Guttermaw, who reject Ankha in favor of Marjack, filthy heretics). As such, she is often looking for work and opportunities for additional income. This includes, but is not limited to, working with the Horde to both earn gold and increase gnoll prestige.

Gnarlhyde is unusually intelligent and patient for a gnoll, though she often hides it to take advantage of other's assumptions about her race. She also has a strong tendency to hide her sex, either through thick fur or loose clothing, as a means to deter unwanted attention. Gnarlhyde has an deep hatred for bugbears, and will take any opportunity to back-stab, betray, or kill one. Gnarlhyde's disdain for bugbears is only surpassed by her seething hatred for Marjack. Though she knows she is not strong enough to fight a god, she takes every reasonable opportunity to profane against him.

More Lore

Though Quinn is kept quite busy by her professional pursuits, she still finds time to write lore. A repository of said lore can be seen here.
