Explanation of the conversion: I decided that the Groosalugg should not have superhuman Characteristics. He is merely peak human and incredibly skilled. His low level of Damage Resistance and Regeneration allow him to survive attacks and recover quicker then a normal man however. The Public ID is more for when he is in Pylea, where he is a renown champion.
History: The man known today as the Groosalugg was born in the dimension of Pylea to a demon woman named Pomegranate. He was not like the other demon spawn of his world. His heart beat in his chest not his rump, and his skin had an odd tone to it. As he matured these defects became more apparent. The Covenant Trombli soon determined there could be no mistake. There was human blood in his veins. Among his people to be part human was to be less than whole. There was nothing he could do to prove his worth. He was even incapable even of performing husbandly duties with any of the females of his tribe, being anatomically equipped to mate only with a human. He was cast from his village and cut off from his life givers. He sought to end his suffering. He entered every contest of skill and daring that he could in an attempt to snuff out his life, but even at that he failed. He won every match, vanquished every flame beast, defeated every drokken. It seemed nothing could stop him. The Covenant had no choice
but to bestow upon
him the name Groosalugg, meaning the brave and undefeated.
The Groosalugg was the champion of the Covenant, and they sent him on many deadly missions. When he was vanquishing the Mogfan beast that bedevils the scum pits of Ur word was sent to him that the Cursed One, a princess who the Groosalugg was prophesied to marry, had been found. He returned to the castle to meet the Cursed One, Cordelia Chase. Cordelia was a visitor from a world called Earth, who was accidentally sucked into a portal and stranded on Pylea. Cordelia was cursed by the gift of visions by the Powers That Be. According to the Covenant, the Groosalugg was supposed to com-shuk (mate) with the Cursed One, and relieve her of the burden of her curse. The Covenant planned on killing Cordelia and using the Groosalugg and his visions for their own evil ends (Through The Looking Glass 2.21).
''You are truly beneficent. Such, compassion, to ignore the flaws of my, polluted birth.'' - The Groosalugg
This plan was overturned when the Groosalugg fell in love with Cordelia. The two, aided by Cordelia's friends Angel, Wesley Wyndam-Price, Charles Gunn, Krevlornswath of the Deathwok clan, and a group of escaped slaves attacked the castle. During the fight the Covenant priest Silas tricked the Groosalugg into fighting Angel in single combat. As Angel nearly defeated the Groosalugg, Cordelia stopped them from fighting. Cordelia left Pylea with the Covenant overturned, freed all the human slaves in the land, and with the Groosalugg the monarch of Pylea (There's No Place Like Pltrz Glrb 2.22).
''I disobeyed the Covenant. I shall spend eternity burning in Tarkna for my sin... It was worth it for one moment of your intimate touch.'' - The Groosalugg
After Cordelia left the Groosalugg wasn't very successful in ruling Pylea. The people overthrew him and he decided to leave and find his princess. He was able to get to Earth where he tracked down Krevlornswath at Angel Investigations and there he was reunited with Cordelia (Waiting In The Wings 3.13).
''I feared you'd forget who I was.'' - The Groosalugg
The Groosalugg then joined Angel Investigations while romancing his princess. Cordelia gave him a full makeover. Although she had reservations about consummating their relationship, eventually Cordelia was able to discover a potion that would protect her from loosing her visions and the happy couple took a long vacation together (Couplet 3.14).
''No. I was reckless! I put everyone in grave peril. Angel is the true champion. He saved us all.'' - The Groosalugg
When Angel discovered that a powerful evil force had taken over Sunnydale, he helped get the Vampire Slayer Faith released from prison for 24 hours so she could aid him in helping Buffy. Although the rest of the Angel Investigations insisted on helping Angel, the Groosalugg respected Angel's wish to with only Faith assisting him (Buffy The Vampire Slayer #47).
The Groosalugg decided Cordelia's heart belonged to Angel and he left her. Cordelia eventually ascended into becoming a higher being (Tomorrow 3.22).
''In my heart I have known the truth for some time. I've just been, struggling, to find the courage to do what is right.'' - The Groosalugg
Powers: The Groosalugg is essentially human, but his demon blood and intense training makes him one of the most powerful and skilled human fighters ever. He heals quickly, and his slightly more resistant to harm then a normal human could be. He has trained himself to remain standing still and awake for days at a time if need be.
