While few of his employers fully trusted him, Goboka was in fact completely faithful to any agreements he had negotiated.
Goboka's personal dream was to exceed his grandfather in fame.
Goboka was the grandson of an ogre chieftain who had united all of the ogre tribes of the Ice Spires against the humans and giants of the region. He was highly respected among the ogre tribes of the Ice Spires.
Goboka and his ogre's performed kidnappings, raids for treasure, and military services.
He had instituted a ceremony among the ogre's of his tribe called the "Six Day Night". During this ritual, an individual ogre would voluntarily be abandoned in a dark and isolated cave with nothing but a small amount of water. If the ogre survived, he or she might be rewarded with a promotion among the tribe. This was seen as a demonstration of loyalty to both Vaprak and Goboka.
During the War of the Twins in Hartsvale, Goboka sold the services of his tribe to Prince Camden. In exchange, he demanded Camden's firstborn daughter when she came of age. Since Camden had no children at the time, and his family strongly favored males, he agreed. In truth, Goboka was under the hire of the Twilight Spirit.
