The Redfang Elite Warriors is a fandom name that referred to a band of 13 elite warriors of the Redfang Tribe, that had consisted of 12 Goblins and 1 Hobgoblin, that were sent by Garen to kill Erin.

After the event in Esthelm, only 6 survived, and all of them had became Hobgoblins. Eventually 1 more would die, and the remaining 5 would ironically end up being saved by Erin. For a while they became Guards for her in The Wandering Inn before they spread further after the joint Human-Goblin Siege of Liscor.

Currently, after the Liscor's Goblin Lord Saga, 2 more would die, 1 would remain with Erin, and the remaining 2 would be forced to go with Rags. Later on, 1 of the remaining 2 would go on a dangerous journey north, with his identity concealed, and accompanied by a small band of Knights.

Chronology Edit

Garen believing that Erin's presence would impede Rags progress to become a Goblin Lord,[1] had secretly send a band of his elite warriors to kill her.

The band, that consisted of 12 Goblins and 1 Hobgoblin each of them above level 10 in a combat class, got lost since none of them were particularly bright and none of them had a tracking class.[2]

After six days searching for the [Innkeeper] girl, had a debate and decided that following Garen's orders without Rags knowledge or permission was wrong and concluded to go back to their new tribe and tell Rags what Garen had told them to do.

Not knowing where their tribe was they searched for them only to encounter one of the Goblin Lord's War Band. They turned and fled to a partially destroyed Human City to lose them among the rubble and fight in tight alleyways. However, they then were caught out on the open snowy landscape where there was nowhere to hide.[3]

After losing the War Band they searched for a place to hide. There they saw how the remaining Human citizens had fallen apart leaving them deeply disturbed as it was like the Humans had formed Goblin tribes, fought and warred over resources like Goblins, and viciously fighting over petty scraps that even the Goblin tribes wouldn’t have contested. When the Redfang Warriors saw the other Humans killing each other in the streets, chasing after women, hurting—they saw a bit of what they did, and felt uneasy, as it was too much like what Goblins were supposed to do, not Humans.

After they were able to tear their eyes away from the Humans, they took in the rest of the city and continued searching for shelter, and then dead bodies for food. On their passage through the streets, the Redfang Warriors saw a child searching for his family and a man approaching with murderous intent.

When the man grabbed the child, Badarrow shot and killed him, thus saving the child. The Redfang Warriors moved on past the child. As they found likely spots to settle, and scouted around for any fresh bodies and wood to use for dinner, they still felt disturbed by the Humans as the Humans didn’t stick together after things fell apart and were killing each other when they all had been part of the same tribe here in the city.

There leader Grunter told them that he had an idea on how to deal with the Goblin Lord's War Band. He told them that when the other Goblins come to kill the Humans they would slip away in the initial confusion from the looting and killing. He also wanted to ambush some of the War Band so they could get their hands on some armor. The Redfang Warriors felt it was a good plan and all they had to do was search for dead bodies to eat, enough wood, and a place to hide.

After a fortuitous find of food and spices they were going back to the small base they’d set up and saw a strange girl that was clearly different from the other Humans. Seeing her monstrous body and the way she moved around they initially saw her as a potential threat, but as they watched her eating a rotted Human body, they stopped in their tracks.

They couldn't believe that they were seeing a Human eating another Human. As that made her stand out, and because they were curious, the Redfang Warriors followed her to watch her a bit longer. They’d watched her stalk a zombie, rescued a young Human man from the zombie, and then ran away from him.

After seeing the zombie the Redfang Warriors were in alarm, as they had forgotten that with so many bodies around the undead would rise. As they were about to retreat and reconsider their hiding spot, they heard the strange girl scream. That was when they saw a skeleton with a sword, attacking her.[4]

Strength Edit

Each member of the group had over ten levels in a combat-oriented class. All of them wore armor and carried swords that were neither rusty nor broken.[5]

They were veteran warriors. From their levels alone, they were each a match for any Bronze-rank adventurer. But in terms of experience, they were vastly more competent than any greenhorn with a sword. And with a Hobgoblin at their head, the Goblins were more than a match for any unprepared Silver-rank team.[6]

Weaknesses Edit

Since none of them have any tracking classes, once they lose the tracks of their target, they get lost without any way to track it back.
