A Goblin is a monstrous creature from European folklore. 

There are two main types of goblins that come from the underground, both of which are subjects of the goblin king. The first type, who moved to earth with the first goblin king’s permission, is a highly intelligent race of small hominids with long fingers and feet that coexist with the wizards in the wizarding world.  Their most distinct features are their peach colored skin tone, black eyes and white or grey hair. Also they’re adept metalsmiths, which was taught to them by dwarves, notable for their silverwork; they even mint coins for wizarding currency. Due to their skills with money and finances, that was taught to them by the elves, they control the wizarding economy to a large extent and run Gringotts Wizarding Bank.

The second type, that is vastly different to the first, is a hominid race of average intelligence with some even down right stupid, which live in the village around the goblin castle with some living in the barracks of the castle. They also share the long fingers and feet features that the first type has. Their most distinct features are their green or brown-grey skin tone, brown eyes and dark brown or black hair. Also these goblins have only ever lived in the underground, unlike the first, taking on rather human like jobs such as guards and cleaners in the castle, while in the village they become shop keepers, pub owners, miners, normal villagers etc…

Both types of goblins have a diet that consists of meat, roots and fungi.Both also converse in a language known as Gobbledegook, with their second language being Latin which is one the main language spoken in the underground (like English is on earth). All goblins have the average height of 48 inches with domed shaped heads, long pointed ears, long pointed noses and slanted eyes and eyebrows. Also all goblins, no matter what job or personality they have, are warriors at heart and are trained at a young age to fight and kill with any weapon, mostly swords and spears, as well as how to quickly and silently kill someone with their bare hands or any other sensible part of their body.
