Part of St. Aggies patrol; killed by Grimble

Ork was a male owl of an unknown species who was part of a snatching patrol at St. Aegolius Academy for Orphaned Owls.


The Capture

Ork was mentioned in Grimble's backstory that he tells to Soren and Gylfie. It was revealed that when Grimble and his mate were out hunting, a St. Aggie's patrol had found their nest and snatched his favourite child, Bess. Enraged, Grimble attacked the owl ferociously, saying that it was Ork, a cousin of Jatt and Jutt's, who had her.
He explains that Ork was considered very dangerous, but in the end, Grimble killed him with his bare talons. While the other owls shrunk back from the Boreal Owl, Skench and Spoorn flew in having witnessed this. They were thrilled that Ork was dead, as a bitter power struggle had been going on between Ork's forces and Skench's forces ever since the previous Ablah General died. Skench and Spoorn were happy enough that they would spare Grimble's family if he returned to St. Aegolius with them, wanting him for his fighting skills.
