Grouse showed up one day in the Great King’s Army. This wasn’t particularly unusual. Goblin camp followers are so common that the Hobgoblin and Tiefling elite have more or less ceased noticing them.

Grouse spent a lot of time watching his betters and doing whatever tasks were randomly thrown his direction until he noticed Xerkos. Xerkos had a certain… special… something about him. Grouse didn’t think too much about what it might be. He just started “helping” Xerkos out. Wherever Xerkos went, Grouse was a few steps behind him. Whenever Xerkos’s armor became dirty or dented, Grouse cleaned or fixed it. Whenever Xerkos would utter an off-hand complaint about how there’s never any decent wine to be found when on the march, Grouse would appear shortly thereafter with a rare vintage bottle of Viirian red.

Grouse, you see, has always been the cleverest of his mother’s many children. He has the usual nimbleness and servile charm of his race, but he was gifted with an additional cunning that gives him the foresight to know on which side his bread is buttered. He is the perfect manservant… to Xerkos, and Xerkos’ allies or friends. He is utterly charming and subservient to those who can kick his ass or those he intends to use to accrue personal power and influence. He is, you see, an ambitious goblin. He’s just clever enough to know that sometimes ambition can be satisfied on the coattails of others.
