Grondkest is a philosopher known in Sycla on Sel.
Dilaf cites Grondkest during one of his Derethi sermons, when he ties Diren to a post and claims that fallen Elantrians are Svrakiss.
“Behold the enemy! Look, see! He does not bleed! No blood runs through his veins, and no heart beats in his chest. Did not the philosopher Grondkest say that you can judge the equality of all men by their common unity of blood? But what of one who has no blood? What shall we call him?”—Dilaf's argument against the humanity of Elantrians
