XIV

With their oddly shaped gas masks and over-sized packs, goblins are one of the most easily recognizable beast tribes in Eorzea. For generations, commerce between the city-states and goblins was commonplace, making up an important facet to the economy, until one day, the whole tribe simply up and left, abandoning their cities and leaving no indication of where they were going or when they would return. Now, several decades later, the quirky beast tribe of crafters and gatherers has begun its migration back into Eorzea, but are the five races ready for them?

Mutamix Bubblypots and his students

A group of Goblin scholars, known as the Illuminati show an almost militaristic zeal in pursuit of knowledge, displaying a willingness to use Magitek, as well as a disregard for Spoken life. In their attempts at building a walking fortress, the Illuminati summoned the Primal Alexander.

A member of this group, Mutamix Bubblypots eventually defected to share their knowledge of the creation of Materia with the world.

EtymologyEdit

A goblin is a small, mischievous creature found in many European folk tales and legends. The word "goblin" comes from the Norman French word Gobelinus, the name of a ghost that haunted the town of Évreux in the 12th century.
