His people a reclusive and prideful clan enjoy the company of their kin and few others.

During his tenure as a member of the clergy, he met his wife and fathered two children. Settling into retirement Grendunor managed an Inn named The Silver home. For many happy years, Gren managed his Inn watching his beardlings grow into fine young dwarves, living their lives as Moradin intended. Time passed and Gren's children too got married. Thanks to Moradin and thunders blessing, both children successfully had little beardlings of their own.
