The Story of Sleepyoak
Smokes, the unusually cheerful goblin.
When he was young, a weird human visited his camp. This man looked like he had been living in nature for a long time, and when questioned about it confirmed it. Smokes decided this man was who he was destined to follow, since the man smoked without end, and the smell of his smoke was weird sweet.
Smokes followed the man to his camp, which was situated in a field of weird plants Smokes had never before seen.
The man, who never gave his name, explained it was this plant he smoked and when he let Smokes try it, Smokes found his destiny.
After spending 2 years with the man, Smokes stuffed his duffel bag completely full with dried Mari Wana plants and left.
That’s when he arrived in Sleepyoak.

Hummingbird, the Windling Inventor
Hummingbird is not like other Windlings, who are social and friendly and always up for playing a game or flying around being all natural and sweet. She, on the other hand, is studious, grumpy and a little reclusive. Where her sisters’ wings have grown to the soft green colour of the forest or the bright brick of the town buildings (and a fisherman of a brother whose wings are a particularly pretty blue), Hummingbird’s are a steely grey shot through with the faded cream of parchment. She spends her days inventing strange mechanical contraptions and bartering for goods to build them. She has a house/shop in the town large enough for humanoids to enter from where she sells her more useful inventions and is always keen on being brought new and interesting items.
Hook: Windlings are barely 2ft tall and suffer all the associated inconvenience.

Dabbles In Mad-Science, the goblin who read the manuals of alchemy, necromancy and the outer gods
Dabbles was born and raised fairly normally, when he moved to sleepyoak to get a job, he worked at a library, and found three books destined to change his life permanently. He read them one at a time, the first, “Alchemy for Madmen”, absorbed him for several years, and he left the rest of the books in a secret room in the library. When he finally got back from his training, he read a book on necromancy, this scarred him for long enough that when he read the last book, “Dgvdhansfslitor” he was barely affected. He then became a monster hunter when he eventually recovered from his ordeal. However, his attitude and mind are permanently warped, and he doesn’t even like using his skills.
