"Hammer God never understood Gorkamorka, never saw. Gorkamorka wants to fight forever, but the Hammer God doesn’t. Hammer God wants to build walls and towers and castles... But what’s the point of that if you never knock them over? Even the Chaos-things don’t understand. They think the point is to kill everyone, but then who’d be there to fight? Nobody understands but Ironjawz, because we’re the smartest and the toughest."
- – Gordrakk, showing everyone that da humiez and da pointy eared gits don't have a monopoly on philosophy.
Gordrakk is the fist of Gork (no nancyin' about here with Mork) and essentially the lone iconic character for the Orruks (particularly the Ironjawz). He's also the closest thing to a central leader to Grand Alliance: Destruction as a whole, his army also including Grots ,Troggoths, Ogors, and Gargants.
About Da Git
So this guy's supposed to be the equivalent of Ghazghkull and Grimgor Ironhide as "that one super-powerful Orc who's supposed to bring about the next great big WAAAGH!" And sure, he's well-equipped with a super-heavy suit of armor and magical axes that were supposedly broken from a legendary axe known as "Worldchoppa".
Gordrakk, though, shines versus the other two on a single factor: he's an actual character. Whereas Grimgor was a borderline mindless brute (one incredibly effective, all said and done.) and Ghazghul is essentially a walking plot point, the fist of Gork has been consistently shown to have fairly deep insights, to be more than "da greenest of dem all!".
"OIH YA FORGOT SUMFINK YA GROT!!!"
Yes what is it?
"OWH DA BOSS BECAME DA BOSS"
Oh, yeah his "origin" story.
So the origins of Gordrakk are unknown, but one tale told by many in the Ironjawz tribe is that, Years ago during the early age of chaos, a powerful chaos warband grew tired of the local greenskins namely the ironjaw tribe, raiding everything that wasn't nailed down, so to counteract this they made a great citadel in order to keep the orks out. When they finished the citadel they witnessed something strange, the local ork tribes started to stand around the entire citadel and do nothing, suddenly a giant green fist smashed the entire citadel flat and killed everyone inside. When the dust cleared there stood a single ork megaboss. This Megaboss being Gordrakk, and as such he also earned his title "The Fist of Gork". At some point after that, he got control of a Maw-Krusha that he named Bigteef and made his personal mount.
As of late, he worked on finding the biggest siege weapon around. Why? Because he thinks Hammerboy’s gone soft, and wants to lay siege to Azyr itself. He succeeded in finding that weapon, uncovering the skull of a massive bovine Godbeast and using to make an unstoppable (in theory) battering ram, one so big, it had to be carried and wielded by Gargants.
Showing he's smarter than the aver-age Orruk, Gordrakk resolved to take it for a test drive on the city of Excelsis, both to test it AND to draw as many humans as possible to Excelsis for an even better fight. His first known use of the Godbeast-skull ram was to break a hole into a cave so he could recruit a trio of Mega-Gargants into his army. Skragrott also joined Gordrakk's WAAAGH! and the two headed to Excelsis.
On the way, Gordrakk's army encountered the newly awoken Kragnos and his ragtag group of Mega-Gargants. Both Gordrakk and Kragnos each resolved to kill the other, Gordrakk due to seeing Kragnos as a great foe to fight and Kragnos mad at the Greenskin army massing on his ancestral homeland. The resulting fight was fierce, with Kragnos beating Bigteef unconscious, Gordrakk climbing Kragnos' body to headbutt his face and a landslide. But soon the two recognized a mutual respect and a shared foe in Excelsis.
Gordrakk's battering ram would've worked but for the enchantments of Lord Kroak, and it shattered upon impact with the main gate of Excelsis.
