TitlesHigh Priest of Belar
First AppearancePawn of Prophecy

Grodeg was the High Priest of Belar and leader of the Bear-Cult. Nearly seven feet tall, with a long gray beard and bristling black eyebrows. Grodeg achieved great influence by involving Queen Islena in the Cult's business. Eventually she grew tired of his bullying and exiled him to the military. He received a serious head injury at the Battle of Thull Mardu. Coupled with the shock of learning that UL was the father of gods, Grodeg went mad and reverted to a childish mindset.

"You can't put the High Priest of Belar in a dungeon," Rhodar exclaimed.
"Islena didn't know that, and Grodeg knew that she didn't." -Enchanters' End Game
