Korman was a goblin pack-bearer, in service to the adventurers. He was equipped with a heavy pack, numerous spare sacks, and tended to carry the loot and salvaged goods the adventurers choose not to bear themselves. He had a capacity of up to 100-lbs.
In addition, he bore a brace of torches in what used to be his javelin-quiver, intended to be useful to the adventurers, though he was often simply the target of various Light Cantrips cast by the spell-casters.
Difficult to control, save by intimidation and the quick reminder of his position through Master Ricochet’s whip, he did not respond well to either reason or incentive. Still rather treacherous, he was not known for his steadfast nature.
Korman had an affinity for rats, shunned the sunlight, and preferred to sleep during the day. He seemed like a beast motivated by greed and malice, dancing, capering and exclaiming with joy when he viewed victory, and delighted in the torment of others. Overall, however, he was a lazy and unproductive servant.
He did not get along well with Mikmek and his companions.
Little is known about Korman’s life before he was captured by the adventurers. A “goblin boss” of the goblins of Pit of Chains, he was among its few survivors, when the adventurers sacked their lair in late-Uktar, TR 1049.
He operated under forced servitude as a henchman to Master Ricard “Ricochet” Shearwater, carrying a pack and the many salvaged treasures and coins of the party as they journeyed. He also taught Ricochet various important goblin phrases, like ’I Surrender".
He was torn apart by a swarm of wolves during the Night of Teeth, on the 30th of Uktar, TR 1049.
Alas, poor Korman, we barely knew thee…
