Grikson Kogaine runs the Golden Troll alehouse in Wingar. He seems desperate to stay open despite the famine, and is generally willing to exchange his services for food and other resources. He is extremely knowlegable about local events and nobility.
Grikson is of orcish descent and can trace his lineage to Craxx Kogaine, a powerful half-orc ranger from the North. Roumour has it, Craxx Kogaine traveled to other worlds and had friends including a number of kings, gods and dragons. Craxx claimed to have won the Golden Troll alehouse in a contest with the previous owner and it has been passed down the family line for over 150 years.
Grikson has revealed some connection to the Stone Lake Vipers.
