Hruggek (pronounced: /ˈhrʌgɛkHRUG-ek[3]) was the chief deity of bugbears, and was the god of violence and combat, as well as an exarch of the greater god Bane. Other gods worshiped by the bugbears included Grankhul, the god of hunting, senses, and surprise; and Skiggaret, the god of fear.

Prior to relocating to Banehold, Hruggek lived in a large cave in Pandemonium called Hruggekolohk. His home was adorned with the severed heads of his defeated opponents.[1]

Hruggek appeared as a massive, powerful bugbear, 12 feet (3.7m) tall. He had great fangs and clawed hands and feet, and wielded a 10-foot long morningstar.[1]
