Grrothgrrowl ruled the Tenpaw tribe, which comprised more than 12,000 members. He managed to command this many thanks to eight chieftains as assistants and an Emerald Enclave advisor, who provided intelligence information.
Grrothgrrowl cared very little for humans, and if they lived outside his territory he was uninterested. Grrothgrrowl required caravans from east and west to pay tribute. He considered the Emerald Enclave a powerful ally but he did not care for the Enclave's ideas.
