The Grand Highblood is the incarnation of Kurloz Makara, one of the eleven teenagers who played Sbrub. Makara’s matesprit, also known as the girlfriend, was Meulin Leijon and they lived a happy life together. They were the happy couple until Kurloz had a nightmare while they were in bed together. The nightmare caused him to scream a horrid sound that made Meulin deaf forever.

Feeling guilty for causing Meulin’s condition, Kurloz chewed off his tongue and sewed his mouth so that he could never speak again. He later met his ancestor, Gamzee, and together they formed a deadly alliance that they would work with Lord English, also known as Caliborn, an all-powerful time-travelling demon.

The Grand Highblood reigned in Alternia, where he was responsible for keeping the trolls of lesser positions in the caste system in check. He acts as a sort of enforcer for the Condesce’s regime and gained a reputation for being extremely unpredictable and violent.

After Orphaner Dualscar’s kismesissitude for Mindfang fails, he offers her location to the Grand Highblood. Meanwhile, Mindfang had written in her journal that Dualscar had made a terrible mistake aligning with the Highblood due to the latter’s volatile nature. Her prediction turns out to be true as the Grand Highblood eventually kills Dualscar for being unable to tell a funny joke.

However, he takes the threat Mindfang poses seriously and sends his wildcard, Neophyte Redglare, to attack her. In the end, it is unclear how the Grand Highblood died, outside the fact that it occurred before the beginning of Hivebent.
