First Appearance

Chapter 2.35

Reiss, commonly known as the Goblin Lord, was the most recent Goblin Lord to threaten Izril, as well as Az’kerash's reluctant apprentice.

Appearance [edit | edit source]

He had a pale complexion,[1] with glowing black eyes and white pupils. He was a bit taller than the average Goblin, but smaller than a Hob,[2] the size of the average Human, but not built like a warrior.[3]

Personality[edit | edit source]

Reiss was an erudite more than a warrior. He had dreams of peace and safety for goblins, and was willing to do anything to see these dreams come to fruition including attempting to murder other goblins as much as it pained him to do so.

Background[edit | edit source]

Reiss was a member of the Ghostly Hand Tribe which specialized in Necromancy. He also lived for a long time in exile and studied under Az’kerash. He eventually returned and took over his tribe by killing the [Shaman]-Chieftain of the Ghostly Hands. The other [Shamans] followed him afterwards. Reiss continued to conquer more Goblin Tribes in Southern Izril, among them the Broken Spear Tribe and many smaller ones.

When the Necromancer found the Goblin Lord, he noticed that the Goblin knew how to read, which is the reason he took an interest in him. Reiss taught himself before and after Az'kerash trained him. The mage gave him spellbooks and scrolls, and the Goblin Lord learned from them all.[3]
