I agree that it's not Chief. But who / what.

I'm wondering if it's one of the two elder goblins from way back in the earlier comic.

Where did it come from? The part of Kore's face that was ripped off?

Looking back 14 years to Kore vs Taps and Asks Nonsense in Book 2.

This could be an unproductive conversation if that's Asks Nonsense.

That's the only suggestion that makes sense to me. I'm unsure what and who is revealed by this, but its surely going to produce more plot development. After so long, more plot development that may even make sense to us long term followers.

I like how Ears lifts up the blindfold to see better even though he doesn't need to do that. :D

If that is the part of Kore's face that was ripped off, then this finally answers my question of why Kore left. It kept bugging me that Kore, who seems to be incapable of dying, would leave in the middle of a battle.

Apparently, the loss of his armor (and possibly all of the damage he took) made the souls vulnerable. So, I guess it's possible to literally rip the souls away from?

Maybe this soul will have more information on Kore's background with the Axe of Prissan.

He might need to. The blindfold doesn't work if you're carrying a weapon. I don't know if having a broken axe wrapped in a cloak and strapped to your back counts as "carrying a weapon", but maybe.

The blindfold is still a blindfold. You can't see through it. It just shows attacks a few seconds before they happen. https://www.goblinscomic.com/comic/07202015

https://www.goblinscomic.com/comic/08112015

Which is why, as you can see on the next page, he wears it as a headband when not in combat. (Even though it would give him warning of a surprise attack.)

The ears don't look like goblin ears at this angle, and the crease that runs down along the sides of the nose, over the cheeks and under the jaw doesn't match either. No nostril slits...

I think he can still see through it. In the second link you posted, he says that he goes "blind" the moment he picks up a weapon, and when he drops it he says, "I can see again." I interpret that to mean he can still see when he's not holding a weapon, it's just "worse."

Actually he doesn't look like someone who's trying to see better, he has the look of someone who's pulling something aside so he can hear better.

At first I thought it might have been some weird random demon that decided to manifest as a torn chunk of flesh, but the other faces on it suggest it is indeed from Kore. It's also glowing yellow from the eyes and mouth, so perhaps it's the spirit of a palladaain? IME is generally arbitrary, but it would make sense for a Palladain's spirit to be stronger in terms of fighting through to reach people like this.

Looks like a goblin, might sound like a goblin, probably tastes like demonic Kore, so it's likely Kore's core animating one of the goblin faces. :D

In the last panel, he means the face that's backlit by the portal-light in Kore's head.
It does indeed seem much like a mask.

Looks like a demon.... So, they have a demon soul in front of them, possibly.
How much do you want to believe anything it'll be saying...?

There are also more masks, and the mouth of another Chitter Chitter Unk Al Dente demon.

But that's on Kore's left. The part of his skull that was torn off was on his right. Still full of faces, mind you.

I don't think those are masks, I just think they are physical manifestations of the souls he has claimed.

Yeah, that's what I always thought too. Especially since when some of it was broken off it only showed light, not any kind of skin. Seems like those faces have become his skin.

Hi Everybody,
When I saw the face on the fragment of Kore's skull, I assumed it was a dead Goblin. It might not be, of course, it is hard to be sure.

Very much looking forward to the next update!

Hugs, Nina.
