Grendel, (character); Character of the books: Kur of Gor, Swordsmen of Gor, Conspirators of Gor. Grendel was once a high Kur,  from the world of Agamemnon, Eleventh Face of the Nameless One, self-exiled from his world, he accompanies and guard, the Lady Bina, once, too, of that world. The name Grendel was invited by humans as a aphorism to the the legend of the Grendel, a beast of earthern sagas.

In difference to the common Kurii, Grendel is able to speak Gorean. Also his paws are five -digited, like a human hand.

I looked up at him, in amazement.
He had said that he was Grendel, high Kur, once from the world of Agamemnon, Eleventh Face of the Nameless One, self-exiled from his world, that he might accompany and guard a woman, the Lady Bina, once, too, of that world.

But I am called Grendel. That name, too, was invented by humans. I gather it is the name of a monster, a grotesque anomaly, a lonely thing of bogs, and marshes and wildernesses, unpleasant to look upon, hated and feared, perhaps the result of an experiment which turned out badly, so that seems appropriate.”

As a phase in this program, in order to facilitate an approach to humans, a series of experiments were to be performed, producing a set of hybrids, part Kur, part human, who, hopefully, could profitably interact with Gorean humans. This program was abandoned, after one such experiment, the result of which was the supposed monstrosity, Grendel, later Lord Grendel. He had several fathers, interestingly, as the genetic materials of several male Kurii were injected into, and fused within, a single human egg, which was eventually brought to term in the human female from whom the egg had been originally extracted. She, after the offspring was shown to her, had killed herself. Lord Grendel, part Kur and part human, was apparently not found acceptable by humans, and so the program was discontinued. Interestingly, for most practical purposes, he was not found acceptable by Kurii either, and became, in effect, an outcast on the steel world of his birth.
