Bouldergut is an ogre pirate and Captain Avantika's personal bodyguard on board the Squall-Eater. As an NPC, she is played by Matthew Mercer.

Description Edit

Appearance Edit

Bouldergut is a massive female ogre with yellowed teeth and greasy gray hair that falls in her face. She wears a simple leather tunic, and wields a large greatclub made from the mast of a ship.[1][2]

Personality Edit

Bouldergut is simple minded but obedient and loyal, particularly to Captian Avantika. She often comes across as jovial and even friendly despite her fearsome appearance, but shows great enthusiasm for acts of violence when given the chance. As an ogre she is often used as an enforcer and muscle by the crew due to her size and strength.
