|“|| General Grievous, though... Grievous is a monster.
The Separatist Supreme Commander is an abomination of nature, a fusion of flesh and droid - and his droid parts had more compassion than what remains of his alien flesh.
–Star Wars: Episode III: Revenge of the Sith novelization
Hello there! I am General Grievous1138, your Supreme Overlord.
I have been on this wiki nearly since its creation (nearly five years now!) For most of that time period, I've proved to be the most ruthless admin we have, and I still hold the record for most bans performed out of the entire staff, by a long shot. But don't worry, I'm not going to hurt you. I have... other uses for you.
I am, naturally, a massive Tolkien fan. I've read LOTR itself over a dozen times, and have also read the Hobbit, the Silmarillion, the Children of Húrin, Beren and Luthien, and some of the Unfinished Tales. I'm also the biggest Star Wars nerd you'll ever have the misfortune of meeting. Not only have I seen all the films many times (though that business in The Last Jedi doesn't count), but I'm also extremely well-versed in the Expanded Universe - both new Star Wars Canon materials and in particular Star Wars Legends. Other interests of mine include Battlestar Galactica, Bionicle, the English language in general, and writing.
Some of you may know me from the mod's Official Server, which I can be found on more often than not. There, I am the War Chief of Moria and a proud leader of Gundabad. If you're ever on at the same time as I, I'm always happy to show people around my dark realm.
I will be happy to answer any questions you have. Simply post them on my talk page, and I will answer as soon as I can.
I am in charge of making sure every single biomes page is 100% up-to-date. Thankfully, this project is going well.
I was also the first user to reach 10,000 edits.
I have built, in singleplayer, a complete map of Mordor that is available for download and exploration, which includes all major builds and much, much more. See the blog tab of my userpage for more.
Obviously, I'm a writer, but my work extends far beyond what I do on this wiki. I've been paid to work as the scriptwriter for the YouTube channel Geetsly's , I wrote a lot of the official mod lore featured on the Lost Chronicles page, and I do a ton of other writing projects on the side, including my short novella Star Wars: Grievous and The Complete Guide to the Clone Wars, a 260+ page book that details the entirety of the Clone Wars, complete with maps. I would be more than happy to send you some of my work, and if you're interested feel free to drop me a message.
I am the owner of the official Wiki Discord, where I can usually be found hanging around #other-stuff, #debate, and #star-wars.

Favorite Quotes Edit
Star Wars Edit
|“||Definition: Love is making a shot to the knees of a target at 180 kilometers using an Aratech sniper rifle with a tri-light scope. I am told that this definition is subject to interpretation. Not many meatbags could make such a shot, and strangely, not many meatbags would derive love from it, either. But for me, love is knowing your target, putting them in your targeting reticule, and together, achieving a singular purpose against statistically long odds.||”|
|“||So you would do nothing? Apathy is death - worse than death, for even a rotting corpse feeds the beasts and insects.||”|
|“||Mockery: Oh, master, I love you but I hate all you stand for! But I think we should go press our slimy, mucus-covered lips together in the cargo hold!||”|
–HK-47, imitating Bastila Shan
|“||Run, Jedi, run. You can only prolong the inevitable!||”|
|“||The people of this world are builders. But look into their hearts, and you will find that they also have the power to destroy. I am that power. I am destruction. And I will destroy you.||”|
|“||Jaller says I should watch out for the Makuta when I'm in the forest. He means Rahi. Monsters. Things you can see. But I know that the Makuta is here now, in these dead trees and charred soil. The Makuta destroyed these things, but he never left them. That is how he grows strong. He destroys things.||”|
|“||Your possession of the Mask of Time may incline me to stay my hand, but we both know that there are a thousand ways I could kill you right now. And 941 of them hurt.||”|
Battlestar Galactica Edit
|“||The Cylons were created by Man. They were created to make life easier on the Twelve Colonies. Then the day came when the Cylons decided to kill their masters.||”|
–The opening crawl
|“||Are you alive?||”|
|“||Humanity's not a pretty race. You're only one step away from slaughtering each other like animals, fighting over scraps of meat.||”|
–Number Two/Leoben Conoy
|“||All of this has happened before, and all of it will happen again.||”|
–The Sacred Scrolls
|“||Pilots call me Starbuck, but you may refer to me as God.||”|
–Lieutenant Kara "Starbuck" Thrace
|“||You know, when we fought the Cylons, we did it to save ourselves from extinction. But we never answered the question, why? Why are we as a people worth saving? We still commit murder because of greed, spite, jealousy. And we still visit all of our sins upon our children. We refuse to accept the responsibility for anything that we've done. Like we did with the Cylons. We decided to play God, create life. When that life turned against us, we comforted ourselves in the knowledge that it really wasn't our fault, not really. You cannot play God then wash your hands of the things that you've created. Sooner or later, the day comes when you can't hide from the things that you've done anymore.||”|
