Psychological Quirks and Problems

Gromit's life revolves around food, preferably donuts.

Parent

Gromit's parent was one of the tribbles that landed on James T. Kirk's head while he was aboard Space Station K7.

History and Experiences Which have affected Character greatly

Gromit's parent was a resident aboard a small Class-J trading vessel. His parent found his way into a storage compartment in a K-class space station, which is where Gromit (and 1,771,561 others) were born. He is forever telling anyone he meets about the time he really and truly met the legendary Captain James T. Kirk! Actually, he had bounced off Captain Kirk's head, but that wasn't his fault. He was thrown by a bald, dark-skinned man. At present, he lives with a large bi-laterally symmetrical being who calls himself 'West' aboard some sort of space-going vessel. None of that matters, of course... why in the world would it? After all, the only thing Gromit wants is lunch. And he would do anything to get it.

Gromit's survival after the Klingons' successful pogrom against the tribbles is due to the fact that Gromit was brought forward in time by the USS Defiant and the Bajoran 'Orb of Time' from about one hundred years in the past, before the genocide of the tribbles had begun. To make sure that the galaxy is never again overrun by his kind, Gromit and the other time-travelling tribbles underwent some minor genetic cross-breeding with a genetically-engineered species called the glommers that rendered them (mostly) infertile.
