History and PersonalityEdit
Unlike many other goblins, Backbiter seems to have received a decent grounding in education at some stage during his journeying alone through the world. He seems to have tried a number of professions during his life, from thief to guide to bounty hunter, and speaks fluent common, elven, goblin, draconic, dwarven and giant. In recent years, he served as a guide through the swamps near Arcanator. In manner, Backbiter is cunning, talkative and cheerful, taking pride in well executed plans and in use of subterfuge over heavy fighting. He seems to be a loyal and stoic ally to have on one's side.
Skills and PowersEdit
Backbiter is a stealthy warrior, who predominately wears light armours and uses thin daggers and rapiers in combat. He is acrobatic and extremely fast, delivering frequent and lightning fast blows to his enemies. He is not particularly hardy or strong, and has very little in the way of leadership skills, but is very intelligent and agile, which he uses to confuse his foes. He is a fighter of sorts, and uses his many attacks to great effect when cutting down his enemies.
In the CampaignEdit
Backbiter was first seen as a guide through the marshes near Arcanator, Orkay.
He was later seen as a mercenary in service to the Legion of the North, and was present alongside Raven during the infiltration of Reaver's Lair. He also helped the party fight through Mance Rictar's fortress, and delivered the killing blow to the dragon Morkhazastansivenereth.
He approached the party alongside Shavram of Orkay and informed them of the bounty of treasure available from Astaveir the lich and the Armoured Titan in the ruins of Arcanator. After they successfully plundered both towers, they returned to Scarfell, where Backbiter is presuambly still serving.
