Slaughter[4]
[!h]

Slaughter Grimm is an argonian necromancer who serves as waiter at the Dreary Jug (later renamed Grelnok's Skull), which he owns collectively with Grelnok, Hoa, Mallory, and Tavima. He is played by Sam Riegel in the Elder Scrolls Online: Blackwood trilogy.

Description[]

Appearance[]

Slaughter is an argonian and is referred to by customers as a "lizard". He has reddish and blue scales and yellow eyes. At first his body was covered all over in sharp spines;[5][6][7][8] these are normally lost on a fifty-year cycle by argonians, but the traumatic experience of "Death & Taxes" caused Slaughter to prematurely molt, so that by "A Faulty Foundation" he no longer had any spines.[9]

Personality[]

Slaughter is excitable, exuberant, and polite. He often stammers in his eagerness to please others or to do well at a task.

Background[]

Slaughter Grimm was raised in a multi-generational family of necromantic torturers who worked for "despots and tyrants". His father is Massacre Grimm, and his mother Felony Grimm-Lebowitz; they work as semi-retired freelancers. He has two siblings, brother Homicide and sister Agony. Unlike his family, he finds no pleasure in torture and has instead pursued his "dream" of working in the food service industry.[10] He has described himself as "on the outs" with his family.[11]

Relationships[]

Slaughter owns the Dreary Jug in partnership with Grelnok Nightbringer, Hoa Sen, Mallory Klaxton, and Tavima. His excitable personality puts him sometimes at odds with Grelnok[12] and Mallory.[13] He took advice on relating to customers from the similarly exuberant Hoa.[14]

  • "Uh, here's your, uh, your plate of, of food, uh, uh, uh, folks, and, and, and here's a couple of, uh, uh, of grogs—best in town, huh-huh! I think you'll find. Uh, freshly poured. Um, also, I've, I've read that if you, ah, have a personal touch with, uh, the person that you're waiting, you're likely to get, uh, better tips, so, ah, it's nice to meet you. Hi, I'm, I'm Slaughter, uh, I'm the waiter here, uh, I've been workin' here for a little while, and, it's, gee whi—gee whiz, it's really great! I'm getting to meet all sorts of people here."[20]
  • (To Grelnok:) "This is my dream. I don't know if I've told you this before, 'cause we don't talk a lot. I come from a long line of necromantic torturers. My father was named Massacre Grimm, my mother is Felony Grimm-Lebowitz, my brother is Homicide Grimm, and my sister is Agony Grimm. And we've all been a longtime family of torturers. We've worked for despots and tyrants, and, you know, mainly my mom and dad are freelancers now, semi-retired. They wanted me to go into the family business, of course, but I—I just can't with the torturing. It's just too much, you know. It's icky and you get splatter on yourself, and the screams of anguish and agony—I just can't, I can't do it. So I'd like to be in the service industry, and I'm making a go of it."[21]
  • "We're not very good at anything. We're restaurateurs."[22]
  • "You can't have a table here without a reservation!" [23]
  • (On a HDYWTDT): "My name is Slaughter Grimm, and I will be your server tonight."[24]
