Taquito "Bangles" Dingleberry of the South End Dingleberries

Goblin Spellcaster Specializing in Wind Magic

Description:

Traits: Taquito, like most goblins, has the following characteristics —

1. A notoriously short attention span.
2. Love for pretty things.
3. Cruel sense of humor.
4. Endless hunger – There is an old goblin saing: “If it moves, eat it. If it doesn’t, pickle it and eat it later.”
5. Love of Song – Taquito loves to sing little songs on the fly

Distraction – Taquito has a tendency to be easily distracted by seemingly irrelevant things, suddenly stooping to squash a slug or pause to pick his nose or belch loudly, regardless of the danger facing him at the time. This distration is caused partly by his notorious short attention span, but also by his love for pretty things, his cruel sense of humor, and his hunger.

Bio:

Taquito is the son of Vildagrumph (mother) and Pik Pik (father). Vildagrumph was once the most beautiful of goblin women living in Athisar – and a beauty to all races (except maybe dwarves). Poor Pik Pik, a humble pickle street vender, could not hope to win Vildagrumph’s love with so many rival suitors.

Vildagrumph ultimately turned the head of a married noble, bringing on the anger of his wife. That cuckqueaned woman bought a curse from a local mage. Goblins have ravenous appetite. That, coupled with a high metabolism, allows them to put away a tremenous amount of food without packing it on. The mage’s curse quadrupled Vildagrumph’s hunger but reduced her metabolism dramatically. As the pounds started mounting, Vildagruph’s suitors started dropping off like flies off of a fastly drying turd.

Pik Pik’s love remained true. In order to win the love and care for Vildagrumph, Pik Pik renewed his focus and started the beginning of Pik Pik Picnic Food Vending Extravagasm (selling all sorts of handily-held food items for street vending). More importantly, Pik Pik came up with a multitude of new items (dog nostril jerkey, half-rot squash noodles, etc) that appealed directly to the non-human, non-dwarf, non-elf races of Athisar who had never had a concerted effort to capitalize selling to them in bulk. More importantly, Pik Pik’s concoctions directly met Vildagrumphs new appetite. It was a match made in heaven.

With Vildagrumph’s new Jabba the Hut like physique, and Pik Pik’s new enterprise, they started a birthing of progeny like none other – a side consequence of the curse. Thus were born Taquito and all of his numerous brothers and sisters. Since it takes a mere 5 years for goblins to reach maturity, Pik Pik quickly had a small army of workers to his food services, allowing him to put vendors in every neighborhood in the city. (Not quite one on every corner.) Alas, the riches that began to pour in were mostly eaten by Vildagrumph the Mountainous.

Taquito, one of the first-born of this somewhat happy couple, was named — as were all their children — after a food loved by Vildagrumph. Luckly she loves so many kinds of foods because they have so many children.


Taquito was working a food cart along the waterfront when he was suddenly caught in the middle of a battle royal between several Wizards. During the battle, the wizard nearest Taquito was fried by a ball of fire. From his charred arm rolled a golden armlet with a bright blue gem – rolled directly toward Taquito. Being a most reasonable goblin, Taquito did not think twice in snatching the golden bauble. Taquito quickly slunk away from the fight, keeping one eye behind him to spy any pursuit.


What Taquito discovered was a prison of a djinnling named AAwusshasuisssshhaaadlishasshasssaaaahssa. Since this name made no sense to Taquito, the goblin named the djinnling “Poof” since that is what Taquito usually hears when the djinning rants on about things.

Taquito is a little miffed that Poof is a creature of wind and not an efreetkin, a creature of fire. Goblins tend to adore fire and consider the ability to control it as a mark of great power. The fact that wind is not fire has not helped Taquito’s self esteem among his peers and has been a source of great consternation.
