The title of this article is conjectural.

Although this article is based on canonical information, the actual name of this subject is pure conjecture.

The male Kaleesh warrior[1] Qymaen jai Sheelal, later known by the name of Grievous,[6] was born on Kalee[1] to a family. Though his father and mother were flesh and blood,[7] Grievous chose to undergo cybernetic upgrades[8] after a shuttle crash[9] destroyed the majority of his organic Kaleesh body.[10] Alternatively, one legend claimed his changes had been over time.[11] Grievous claimed to view his cybernetics as improvements[3] over a weaker organic form.[12]

A brilliant tactician,[13] Grievous served as the Supreme Martial Commander of the Separatist Droid Armies for the Confederacy of Independent Systems during the Clone Wars.[14] Despite not being Force-sensitive,[12] Grievous, using his cybernetics and skills in Lightsaber combat,[15] served as a Jedi hunter for the Confederacy[13] and killed many Jedi.[3]

The Kaleesh cyborg was ruthless as he invaded planets and fought Jedi in the Clone Wars, during which he was feared by the Galactic Republic.[13] Grievous also maintained a personal fortress on Vassek 3, where he kept a pet roggwart named Gor, but the creature was killed by Jedi Kit Fisto and Nahdar Vebb when they infiltrated the lair.[3] In 19 BBY,[16] days after he became the Separatist Head of State[17] after his mentor in Lightsaber combat, Count Dooku, was killed in the Battle of Coruscant, Grievous was killed during the Battle of Utapau by his nemesis, Jedi General Obi-Wan Kenobi.[5]
