Eventually, she shares with you that her goblin tribe was a vicious and brutal one. As a shaman, M'Khiin commanded some degree of respect, but her abilities also brought her a maturity the other goblins lacked. She wanted desperately to escape from the cruelty of her life, but the other goblins valued her abilities too much to let her go.
One night, a goblin scouting party came across a deer caught in a thicket of brambles. They killed the animal and carried it triumphantly back to camp. M'Khiin waited until the others had stuffed themselves on raw meat and fallen into a post-meal stupor, then crept away.
She's been on her own ever since and has found herself persecuted by humans at every turn. She joined Baeloth Barrityl with the understanding that she would be presented as an "exhibit" but not made to actually fight—a promise Baeloth broke the minute the opportunity presented itself.
