General Grievous is a brilliant military strategist who can't be bothered with compassion or mercy. His lightning strikes and effective battle planning made him infamous in the eyes of a frightened Republic. A twisted melding of flesh and metal, General Grievous' body is a deadly weapon. Grievous' living matter was encased within his precision-engineered artificial body; inside the hardened shell beat the heart of a remorseless killer. A pressurized gut-sack held his vital organs, while his skull-like mask contained his living eyes and brain. Each of his six-fingered arms could split in two, resulting in an array of four limbs, each armed with a lightsaber that he would take as a grim trophy of his victims. Grievous could spin these arms in a whirling storm of deadly light. For all his imposing image, Grievous is a coward at heart. Only with opponents he believes he can defeat does he enter into combat. His hacking cough and thirst for winning every battle at any cost made him Enemy Number One in the eyes of the Jedi Council.
