Rags is a Goblin and the Chieftain of the Flooded Waters Tribe.

Appearance[]

Rags is small and short, even by goblin standards. Although Rags is still young, she is considered to be "undeniably attractive" by Goblins.[2]

Personality[]

Rags is an unparalleled genius of her race. She has enough curiosity to first approach and then learn how to play chess from Erin.

Rags has a lot of pride and is very stubborn. She is very tactical and through her race's 'stealing' natural ability, her tribe is boosted in intelligence enough to eventually build a trebuchet only one day after seeing one work.

She considers Erin to be her friend.

Background[]

Initially, her Flooded Waters Tribe resided in the Floodplains next to Liscor, hence the tribe's name. At that time her tribe was still small, however already mentally and technologically superior to the other goblin tribes. Their weaponry, a mix between a pistol and a slingshot, was originally founded from the remains of a broken crossbow.

Chronology[]

Rags was raised by her parents, who were murdered by Relc near the Wandering Inn. Rags was hiding behind the bushes, and because of her distance from the group and her small stature, Relc did not notice that there was one more goblin remaining. When Erin buried the goblin corpses, Rags attempted to attack her, but Erin could knock her off and she could escape.[3]

Later, she was given food for free[4] and learned how to play chess - this lead Rags to eventually view The Wandering Inn as a sort of 'heaven.' Unfortunately, Rags had to realize that she was not safe near the inn because of people like Relc. She still returned to the inn regularly with several goblins as bodyguard.[5]

After the destruction of the old inn, Rags was intimidated by Relc and Ceria who made it clear to her that Liscor's patrols would soon get rid of her tribe. However, Rags' tribe was also boxed in between the Redfang Tribe and the Broken Spear Tribe and not capable to move. After pooling the mental skills of her entire tribe, they invented a new projectile-throwing weapon based on the remains of a broken crossbow found in Skinner's ruins.[6] To acquire more power, Rags scouted Liscor's Dungeon but had to realize it was too dangerous for her tribe. Even worse, the relocated inn had Relc as a patron again, and he threatened Rags to leave yet again. This time she took him even more serious and started her campaign against other goblin tribes of the area to amass the power to break out of the Floodplains valley.[7]

Rags' tribe begun by overwhelming several smaller tribes of the Floodplains, such as the Jawbreaker, Bloody Hand, and Sword Taker tribes. This was enough to grab the attention of the Redfang tribe, who called a summit with the surrounding tribes, assumedly to deal with the upstart. On the way to the meet, the Gold Stone tribe is ambushed by Rags' Flooded Waters tribe, and with realitvely few casualties, they are assimilated into her group.

However, this is revealed to be a trap by Garen Redfang, who attacks the Flooded Waters tribe with a contingent of elite Carn Wolf riders. They carve through Rags' forces before their main army arrives, and she is forced into a costly retreat back towards Liscor. Many goblins are slain or desert her tribe during the retreat, until finally Rags makes a stand in a valley. She utilises her cunning to set traps and ambushes and finally bests Garen Redfang in single combat with the aide of an acid jar, though they both acknowledge that he let her beat him. The Redfang tribe is assimilated into Rags' tribe, and Garen Redfang takes the role of Rags' mentor, despite her aversion to the idea[8].

After being refused entry to the The Wandering Inn due to the presence of Mrsha who had just lost her entire tribe to goblins, Rags is convinced by Garen Redfang to take her tribe north. On her way north she burns Esthelm to the ground, killing all who raised a weapon or resisted, while allowing those who fled to escape without pursuit.[9]

Garen brings Rags to Tremborag's Mountain, where Tremborag proceeds to treat her as unimportant due to her lack of combat strength. Tremborag then plans a raid on a human town, where Rags seeks to prove herself by vastly improving his plan. Rags plan initially goes off well, until Gold Rank adventurers emerge to help defend the town. This takes Rags by surprise, as the area around Liscor had no Gold Ranks while Rags lived there. Tremborag emerges in his muscular form and easily crushes the Gold Ranks and continues to look down on Rags for her weakness.
