At her father's urging, Griselda was one of the first children to be aged to adulthood by the Drain Life ritual with Rend Blackhand and Maim Blackhand.[2] Like her brothers, Griselda had been trained to fight, but she was not a natural the way her brothers were.[3] Blackhand forbade her to drink the blood of Mannoroth, intending to shame her.[4]

Some time later, she started an affair with the renegade ogre Turok in defiance. Blackhand was not pleased.[5]

She fled with Turok into the Deadmines, disobeying her father's commands, and thus committing treason against the Horde. One of Blackhand's forces was mercilessly sent into the Deadmines in order to kill the ogres and Griselda as well. The orcish warriors killed the ogres and Griselda.
