The Grips are a gang of thugs in Kholinar on Roshar.[1]

During the Siege of Kholinar, Shallan Davar (in her Veil persona) starts bringing food to displaced people in the city including Grund, Tai, Muri, Ma, and Seland.[2][3] Unbeknownst to Shallan, her conspicuous actions quickly attract the attention of the Grips.[1] They start forcing the refugees to wait all day for Veil's deliveries; Grund says that they beat him if he leaves his post or tries to take any food for himself.[1] The Grips also blame Grund if Veil does not bring much food.[1]

Shallan eventually realizes that something is wrong, and discovers the Grips eating as Grund watches.[1] The Grips are spooked, and one of the gang members smashes Grund's head open before fleeing.[1] Before dying, Grund tells Shallan that he hates her, and that the Grips had already killed Tai due to the attention that Veil drew.[1] Seland and Ma have already abandoned the area,[3] and Muri plans to do the same.[1] Shallan blames herself for being so naive and causing more harm than good, and is particularly guilt-ridden about Grund's death.[4]

Wit arrives and tries to console Shallan, telling her that other people in the market had asserted themselves against the Grips, forcing them to give up Grund's murderer and disperse.[4]
