History: (Marvel Fanfare I#25) - Many goblins were placed into the service of the wizard Lord Raven, who would shape their bodies together to form pillars within his castle. One of the goblins who counted himself kin to those of Lord Raven's became the leader of a band of human barbarians, and led them toward Lord Raven's castle with the promise of plunder, hoping to rescue his fellow goblins.

(Marvel Fanfare I#26) - When Tyndall, Velanna and Mud-Butt passed through the goblin corridor again, the goblins came to life and attacked them and Lord Raven himself. Lord Raven slaughtered many of the goblins. When Lord Raven was seemingly destroyed by Velanna, the goblins were left in control of the castle.

(Epic Illustrated#11/6) - A band of goblins led by Shreekar were preparing to lay siege to Skyhook Mountain, home of Lianissa. When Tyndall, Velanna and Mud-Butt washed up nearby, the goblins tried to claim them as food, but the trio escaped their clutches and were able to enter Skyhook Mountain.

(Epic Illustrated#12) - Shreekar's forces were unable to prevent Mud-Butt, Tyndall and Velanna from escaping Skyhook Mountain. As Nightgaunt prepared the completion of his plot, he decided that he no longer needed Shreekar and his men alive, and used the Red Mist of Death to kill all of them.

(Epic Illustrated#13) - The souls of the dead goblins were brought to the Land of the Dead, where Nightgaunt used the Sleep Crystal to restore them to life and serve in an army which he intended would partake in the war of the gods. However, the goblin armies were bested by the dragons of Klarn, Wulfbuck, Tyndall, Velanna and Mud-Butt.
