Monks of Grondheim
The Monks of Grondheim were mentioned briefly in Metroid Prime in a computer terminal scan in the Magmoor Caverns on Tallon IV. Space Pirates who had set up geothermal processing operations in the Monitor Station had planned to harvest the local lava-filled crystal formations and sell them to the Monks, to whom they were reportedly of great value. Whether Grondheim is a location or a religious order is unspecified.
- "Local crystal formations possess low Phazon residue. They do have high value to the monks of Grondheim, however. Recommend processing of crystal for that market once Phazon operations cease." —Scan Data (Metroid Prime)
