Stonejaw Strongjaw[1] was Grog Strongjaw's father. As an NPC, he was played by Matthew Mercer.



When Kevdak beat Grog nearly to death, Stonejaw did nothing to help his son.[2]

Stonejaw died at some point after Grog's departure from the Herd of Storms. His corpse was later reanimated by the dying mage Drath Mephruhn who was attempting to become a lich, and Vox Machina destroyed him.[3]

Appearances and mentions[]


  • According to Laura Bailey, Stonejaw Strongjaw had an Intelligence score of 4.[4]
  • While infiltrating Westruun when it was under control of the Herd of Storms, Scanlan and Kaylie created an illusion of the head of Stonejaw Strongjaw as a way to divert approaching members of the Herd.[5] Grog continued the ruse, impersonating Stonejaw to draw several of the Herd's guards into a trap at the western gates of the city[6] but failing to deceive the remaining members.[7]
