- Not to be confused with [Gnaw] or [Gnaw].
Gnaw was a Woodpaw gnoll warrior trainer who trained her pup Hackle and Jaggal. She was a close friend with Claw.
She initially agreed with Matriarch Greasefang about the cause of their tree problems being the Feral Scar yetis, but was later silent and agreed with her son Hackle that the trees were not cut by the yetis. Gnaw talked to and showed Claw the cut trees. She told him that Greasefang is wrong and Hackle is right. Although Claw cuffed her, he eventually agreed with her and took the matriarch to show her the trees, but the two never returned. After this, she succeeded Greasefang as the clan's matriarch. When the Gordunni ogres arrived to the Woodpaw lands, the gnolls fought, but she eventually decided to abandon the lands and move east, and later south. Eventually, the ogres found them again and Gnaw was killed by Marjuk. Gnaw was ultimately avenged when Hackle killed Marjuk in the new yeti lands.
