Gigu is a goblin tribe that lived within the depths of the Great Forest of Tob.


The tribe was led by Chieftain Ah. At one point, his tribe became associated with a tribe of hobgoblins. Through this interaction, he and his mate adopted Agu, a young hobgoblin child.

The goblins learned of the creation of the Monument of Ruin and its epicenter for undead activity through the surviving warriors that managed to escape. The tribe also noticed the increasing activity of the two forest rulers and the disappearance of another. Realizing that something foreboding was on the rise, the tribe decided to split into smaller parties to find a new home.

After the tribe divided itself, they became weaker and thus allowing the Giant of the East along with his forces to easily take control. As a result, Gigu was forced to join the troll's army on their war against the Monument of Ruin. Yet at the same time, the goblins suffered heavy losses as many of its members were killed and eaten by the trolls army for the slightest infraction. Although there were some attempts to escape elsewhere like the Southern Forest, they continued to be ruthlessly hunted down one by one in numbers.


The Two Leaders Arc[]

Gigu's situation was revealed at Carne Village from a surviving goblin. It seemed obvious that Gigu's smaller parties did not make it to safety. The remnants were rescued by the Goblin Troop and became new members of Carne Village.[1]

The Magic Caster of Destroy Arc[]

The remnants of Gigu, under the supervision of Enri Emmot, came to peacefully coexist with the human inhabitants of Carne Village. When the Kingdom's army attacked the village in an unprovoked manner, the ogres and goblins acted in cohesion with the humans' defense and evaluation plans.[2]


Gigu was fairly strong as claimed by Agu. The goblins were quite numerous and had several ogres under their command. The tribe coexisted with the ogres to such a degree that the ogres were definitely loyal to the goblins, risking death when they escaped together from the Giant of the East. About fourteen goblins are all that remains of the once-powerful forest tribe.

Known Members[]


  • It's unknown which area Gigu was originally situated, but given that the tribe sought safety to the Southern Forest, its possible that they were originally from the north.
