As a goblin, Stitch has spent most of his short life in danger, whether from other goblins, larger monsters, or the nearby civilizations.
Stitch has managed to garner some relative safety in the form of a bargain made with Duke Nicholas Athanos of House Athanos, in where he serves the duke in effectively whatever he seems fit, and his goblin clan is left alone, so long as they do not provoke the House.
Sometime in the last year, Stitch began having odd dreams, seeing nothing but death in his future. This terrifies and intrigues the young goblin, because along with these dreams have begun to come abilities he did not previously possess. These are of use to the House, and therefore not completely shunned, but he walks a narrow line and does not want to break the tenuous truce between the house and the clan.
