Born in the swamps of Tanglethorn, his father Gnerk the 3023`rd wished that the end of the name Gnerk, would begin with Gnork, as the name Gnerk had been around quite a long time, the first Gnerk being born in the era called Time of Humans. Gnerka his mother thought the idea was pretty good and so Gnork became Gnork. As for why Gnork left the swamps was because of the shortage in food and his mother had just born a twoheaded ogre, which meant there was three mouths to feed. Thus Gnork left his place of home and began his long journey towards west, for no particular reason, it just felt good walking west. His journey ended in a small forest south of Tandora, where he now lives and thrives.
