There seem to be variations - either Sathand Gril or Sathand Grit. The former is how it is spelled in my UK hardback, the latter how it appears in amazon previews. Additionally, the name appears in the amazon DP but not in my hardback DP where it is missing along with a list of other Barghast.
Can you check your copies of DoD and let me know whether the character's name is spelled Gril or Grit, please. He appears in chapter 15 of the book and is the one chasing Tool and Hetan's children. Also whether he appears in the DP of the book and how it is spelled there.

It is important that you state which copy you are taking the info from (i.e. UK/US etc. as well as hardback/paperback/kindle etc.)

Hopefully between replies here and on reddit, I have enough material to determine the primary spelling for the Wiki

Thanks :)

Not in the Bantam hardback DP or last name mentioned in book.

It's Sathand Gril in my UK Bantam hardback (which is from when DoD was first released, subsequent printings occasionally do change stuff, though). Not mentioned in the DP at all. Same goes for the ebook.

Page 506 seems to be the first time he is mentioned at all, roughly halfway through Chapter 15:

Heart thudding with anticipation, Sathand Gril slipped out from the light of the wind-whipped fires. [...]

I have the UK Bantam MMPB. He is listed as "Sathand Grit" in the DP, but he appears to be referred to as "Sathand Gril" in the chapter 15 passage quoted above in my edition as well.

In mine he's called Barand Grill.
They came with white hands and left with red hands.

Thank you everyone for your replies - I have linked this thread and the one on reddit to the Wiki page.

Seems like Grit appears only in some DPs but not in the main text.

As for Worry's edition - I'd hold on to that, Worry - obviously a really rare one-off. Probably worth a fortune!!! ;)
