Goblin Lord links to this page. For general information, see: Goblin Lords

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

Appearance []

He had a pale complexity,[1] with glowing black eyes and white pupils. He is 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 []


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.

He taught himself. Before and after Az'kerash trained him. The mage gave him spellbooks, scrolls, and the Goblin Lord learned from them all.[3]
