Grief-Bringer is an evil dragon known to have terrorized the denizens of the mines of Shintaro.
Years ago, Grief-Bringer menaced both the Geckles and Munce before being fought and slain by Lillie. This deed won her the eternal gratitude of the two tribes, with whom she left the Blades of Deliverance she had wielded against the beast. Unfortunately, the Geckles and Munce came to distrust one another, and thus became vulnerable to the cruelty of the Skull Sorcerer. He would later use the Skull of Hazza D'ur to animate Grief-Bringer's skeleton as his undead minion in suppressing both the rebelling tribes and their new allies, the Ninja, in "Grief-Bringer".
