Special Abilities:

Four Arms: General Grievous’ arms can split from their default configuration into a set of four arms which allow him to wield four weapons at once.

Ultrasonic Vocabulator: Grievous has a vocabulator system which can communicate into ultrasonics, allowing him to issue commands to droids unknown to organics.

Magnetised Talons: Grievous’ feet end in a set of magnetised talons, which can magnetically adhere to metal surfaces such as starship hulls. The talons are also razor sharp (Strength+2D Damage) and can be used for climbing or gaining purchase on slippery or sheer surfaces. His feet can also be used interchangably with his hands, allowing him to walk on his hands while wielding weapons with his feet, or to stand on a single foot while wielding weapons in his hands and other foot.

Heuristic Combat Programming: Grievous’ brain is enhanced to allow him to control his cyborg body, as well as to allow him to combat his chosen enemy, the Jedi. This programming allow him to wield four weapons at no disadvantage (first four actions are taken at no penalty), making him a fearsome warrior.

Cybernetically Enhanced Eyes: Although Grievous has his natural Kaleesh eyes instead of photoreceptors, these are enhanced, allowing him to see in the dark (+2D to search in darkness), and including macrobinocular features.

Armorplast Plating: Grievous is covered with armor plates, making him heavily resistant to damage (+1D vs Damage) although obviously even this is not enough to make him totally resistant to a Lightsaber wielding Jedi Knight.

Equipment: Blaster Pistols (4D), Multiple Lightsabers (5D)

Background: Grievous, formerly known as Qymaen jai Sheelal, was a Kaleesh male warlord who served as a commanding officer in the military forces of the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the last years of the Galactic Republic. Although he was known by his rank as a general, Grievous was the Supreme Commander of the Separatist Droid Army that engaged the Grand Army of the Republic throughout the pan-galactic conflict of the Clone Wars. Noted for his ruthlessness and extensive cybernetic enhancements, Grievous inspired fear as he traveled across the galaxy, invading entire worlds and engaging the Jedi Knights of the Republic.

A native of the planet Kalee, Grievous sustained severe injuries that required extensive repair by the time of the Clone Wars. Willingly submitting to a procedure that rendered him more mechanical than organic, he became a living weapon, granting him lightning-quick reflexes and devastating strength. Although he was neither Jedi or Sith, nor even sensitive to the power of the Force, Grievous was a skilled lightsaber duelist, having trained in the art of the lightsaber under the fallen Jedi Master-turned-Sith Lord Count Dooku. Known for his hatred of the Jedi Order, Grievous killed Jedi over the course of the war, and would claim their lightsabers both as trophies and weapons to be used against other opponents, be they Jedi or clone troopers. The cyborg, nicknamed the “head clanker” by the Republic clones due to his cybernetics and role as Confederate Supreme Commander, became one of the Republic’s priority targets.

In addition to his combat skills, Grievous was a brilliant military strategist who oversaw multiple campaigns throughout the Clone Wars—from the Battle of Kamino, where he failed to halt the production line of clone troopers; to the Battle of Dathomir, where his battle droids massacred the Nightsisters led by the witch Mother Talzin. In 19 BBY, Grievous launched a daring raid on Coruscant, the Republic capital world, resulting in the abduction of Supreme Chancellor Sheev Palpatine. However, the Jedi succeeded in rescuing the Chancellor while driving back the Separatist invaders. Following the loss of Dooku, Grievous and his army went into hiding in the Outer Rim Territories. Unknown to Grievous, his master, the Sith Lord Darth Sidious, betrayed the general’s location to the Jedi Order, allowing them to invade the planet Utapau in an effort to bring a swift and decisive conclusion to the war. As a result, Grievous was ultimately slain by his nemesis, Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi, whose 212th Attack Battalion went on to secure Utapau even as Order 66 went into effect, marking the fall of the Republic and the rise of the Galactic Empire.
