Gnawers (main faction)
Cleaver was a large gnawer who fought against Ripred in the final battle between the humans and the gnawers in Gregor and the Code of Claw. After stumbling into a passage to the Waterway, he was devoured by flesh-eating mites. Ripred used his body as a shield, and managed to escape. Ripred later states wryly that, while he and Cleaver were never friends, he cannot help but remember him fondly.
