Bio:

“Leku Tree say ‘go help’, so Goby go help.”
-Goby, shortly before Fenwick and Temulin realized it wouldn’t be so easy to get rid of him.

Goby is a young (probably) goblin Druid who used to live in the Leku Woods with the Leku Tree (ostensibly, a sentient darkwood tree of enormous size). A band of Kobolds attacked the Leku Tree, attempting to cut up it’s roots. Goby ran away looking for help (probably) and happened to find Fenwick and Temulin’s camp. He persuaded them (somehow) to follow him through the woods and rescue the Leku Tree. Fenwick and Temulin easily dispatched the Kobold marauders, and then watched Goby carry on a one-sided conversation with the gigantic tree during which Goby gave them branches (magical darkwood clubs) of the Leku Tree and insisted that it had told him to go with them and “help”. The caliber of Goby’s help remains dubious at best, but he is far and away the most trustworthy and loyal companion the party has yet managed to acquire. (Despite leaving him behind in Azurok.)
