When Delan was travelling through the hordelands, he discovered a small tribe of psionically gifted goblinoids with bluish skin. Curious and interested, he trained them in various psionic techniques and theories, before moving on, wishing them well. He could not have known the powerful new race he had just helped spawn in the Blues.
Blues are still members of the goblin race, psionically attuned and cunning. Over the centuries, the goblin people persecuted this strange mutation, exiling or outright slaughtering any goblins that were born of this lineage. When Delan found them, they were on the verge of extinction, reduced to a handful of males and a single female. However, Blues can still interbreed with goblins, and their blood runs stonger, with any progeny having a 3/4 chance of being born as a blue. Strangely, the males of this species outnumber the female at a ratio of 3:1, meaning that goblin females are usually taken as mates by this race. Though still smaller in number, they have grown to a significant faction within the chaotic Hordelands, and have begun to travel the world in search of knowledge and diplomatic contacts.
Physically, Blues are identical their goblin kin, with the only difference being the bluish cast to their skin, their electric blue irises, and lacking the sharp mouth of teeth of a goblin. Goblins tend to a sandy brown skin tone, though it ranges from dark to light. They are smaller in stature than most races, comparable to the Dromite. They have pointed ears, and thin limbs.
