Because of his malformed hand, he attracts Shallan's attention. He keeps it tucked into his sleeve, but is capable with his good hand. Shallan, trying to get the attention of the revel, takes enough food for extras. She takes pity of Grund, and starts handing out food. He is usually very happy to see her. What she doesn't know is that the Grips, a gang in Kholinar, find out about this, and they force Grund to hand over whatever she brings. Grund had to spend all day waiting for her gifts so that the Grips could take it.
One time, Grund acts strained and lies to her that he is fine. When Shallan brings in a meager load, Grund accepts it, but the Grips do not. They get angry and kill Grund. Shallan, suspicious, had stayed back and saw the whole thing. Grund lived long enough to tell Shallan how much he and all of the other people she 'blessed' hated her.
