Episode 41 Bujilli tells Leeja a bit about his experience with the Grunters. Nasty, brutish and short porcinomorph hominids of decidedly depraved disposition, unsavory habits and atrocious table manners, the Grunters are relentless hunters and delight in torture, mutilation and flossing.

Grunters are heavily-built, low to the ground and prefer to go around as heavily armored as possible. They invest most of their ill-gotten loot in their armor, upgrading it, customizing it, decorating it. Their sense of style is atrocious, stunted and fairly sophomoric, usually tended towards the usual spiky-bits, dangly-skulls, and crude tassels made from the skins of their victims.
Matriarchal creatures, Grunters serve their War Sows with fanatical devotion. They also eat the young of their rivals, their friends, even their own, as some sort of weird cannibalistic urge few of them can resist.
Any disease they can survive for more than three days becomes unable to affect them any longer, but they persist in transmitting it as a plague vector for the next 1d100 days.
