Lore-Speaker GronVersion I:
Children of Gaia historical records are older and more complete than those of any other tribe save the Fianna, and they hold esoteric secrets unknown even to the Fianna lore masters.
One of the oldest figures in Children of Gaia record-keeping predates even the recorded history of mankind. Lore-Speaker Gron was a hermaphrodite Ahroun who vowed to end the lmpergium, and fought many challenges just for the right to raise the issue of changing the Impergium policy at Garou councils.
After a lifetime of challenges, and after living through multiple assassination attempts that claimed the lives of all his/her loved ones, Gron was allowed to raise the issue at a Grand Moot. Opponents thought they could beat the now-ancient warrior at either combat or Gamecraft, and agreed to Gamecraft. When Gron chose a Stargazer surrogate, she/he lost Renown, but won the war. Gron was murdered on the day the Impergium ended, but died happily, seeing the end of the hated practice.
Children of Gaia still look to Lore-Speaker Gron for enduring courage against seemingly impossible odds, especially against other Garou.Source: Tribebook: Red Talons (WW3053), Page 66Version II:
According to the Children of Gaia’s Galliards, Lore-Speaker Gron, a hermaphroditic metis, was the Philodox whose impassioned speeches convinced the Garou Nation (who were still one tribe at least in name) to end the Impergium. His-her long association with the stonecarvers and poets of the Balkan settlement called Lepinski Vir by later archaeologists had convinced him-her that endless killing was preventing humans from achieving a culture which could create art and beauty while remaining in harmony with Gaia.
Gron's pack, natives of present-day Anatolia, traveled across the Mother's face for decades making political alliances and earning favors through their works of peace; the resulting goodwill ensured that the motion passed in an Allmoot. The ill-will that the pro-Impergium faction bore toward Gron and the pro-peace faction ended in the division of the Garou Nation between the Fangs and the Children of Gaia, with the Fianna migrating to the northwest to pursue a life of their own. Gron's own family died in a series of attempts to murder him-her. Sadly, Gron died in the struggles over Catal Huyuk,said to be the first city to arise after the Impergium's end; he was said to have been slain by vampires who wanted the city for their own feasting ground. The pursuit of peace is neither easy nor safe.Source: Tribebook: Red Talons (Revised) (WW3853), Page 91
