How Grunbeld joined the Tourney
Years before, it was said that Grunbeld defended against a Chuder invasion with 3,000 men. He was thought to have been killed in battle, but became the Dragon Apostle.
He soon confronts Guts just as he was attacking Flora's forest home. Grunbeld's hammer does seem to cause trouble for Guts at first, but golems help turn things around, forcing Grunbeld to use his Apostle form. Despite the gruesome injuries he sustained, Guts manages to escape alive.
Upon learning of the Second Tourney, Grunbeld joins hoping to find a worthy challenger when Rubeus is chosen to be his partner.
