|That's one mean looking dwarf the Red Axe has employed.|
Colonel Grimsson, the Butcher of Barendir, is a member of The Red Axe Mining Company. When players first see him during Forgettable Tale..., he is called "Red Axe Henchman". Players learn of his name after searching the records room further through the Red Axe base.
The Battle of BarendirEdit
The Colonel was a well known dwarf for his efforts in fighting the trolls. He fought as the commanding officer in the Battle of Barendir, where the forces of Keldagrim attacked a large troll army, mercilessly killing them even as they began to retreat. Soon, he found himself fighting a hand-to-hand battle with a "particularly ferocious troll", giving him the large scar across his face.
After this battle, Grimsson became more aggressive towards others, including dwarves. After a vicious attack on a comrade, he was dismissed from the Black Guard. He was later recruited by the Red Axe, where his madness and anger would be accepted as a strength.
Forgettable Tale of a Drunken DwarfEdit
In Forgettable Tale of a Drunken Dwarf, he is seen along with the Red Axe Director, Grunsh, Laneel the gnome emissary, and some gnome companions from Arposandra discussing the creation of the chaos dwarves and their current production status.
At the end of the quest, he is seen observing the player make a drunken fool of him/herself in front of the congregation of dwarves at the Laughing Miner pub. Seeing that Grunsh's spell was a success, he was sure that no one will believe the player's tales of what they found.
- As part of the Red Axe, Grimsson wields a red axe. The red axe that he wields used to be similar to the Dragon Battleaxe in RuneScape Classic.
