History: Greebo has no past. His memory of his life is non-existent, his memory of his unlife fractured. An experiment by the Dark Lady Sylvanas in the creation of minds, he came into being as a puppet of her will, forged from the body of a human warlock captured in one of her occasional raids on Valgarde and a sentient but unself-conscious being of energy plucked from the Twisting Nether. The mind of the original inhabitant of the body is still in there, digested inside a nephandic spirit, trapped in a cage woven of dark energy and spirit agony – the original spirit pacemaker crafted by Sylvanas as a link between the incorporeal energy and the dead body. As the experiment progressed, Sylvanas decided to dispatch him to be an agent within The Grim to allow her a fuller knowledge of their activities whilst still maintaining deniability with her allies concerning their transgressions – his primary motivations were rewoven with The Mandate as the warp. No story of the creation of a spirit is complete without the threat of turning against the creator but Greebo has not come to that, yet. As his mind grows more complex however, the strictures and controls that she placed there have been drowned out by experience. He spent time, thanks to a failed attempt to keep the Mandate pure, in the body of a Stormwind human but returned when that vessel was broken. From time to time, a tendril of black oil flickers across his dull yellow eyes.
