Trash Goblin is a small, goblin-like, inarticulate wanderer who barely knows how to survive in the Earthly plane. She is primarily concerned with eating, spying on people, and stealing.
Powers & Abilities
- Foul Stench - Whups always smells bad, but sometimes it's merely a waft of sewage. In actuality, she has control over how intense this smell is, and can modulate its range and potency at will... though she can never completely remove it. At its worst, this effect can reach 500 feet and make people cough and wheeze. (She very rarely turns this power up to 10.)
- Fast Scurry - Strong, hyperactive legs boost her running speed. Though this is a short-lived sprint, she can reach a running speed of 40mph for a few minutes before slowing down.
- Strange Hyde - The composition of her skin is rather odd. It looks a bit rotted, and little pieces of it are often flaking off. On closer inspection, she is covered in spiny, little thorns, which are as strong as bone, and quite sharp on contact. Additionally, Whups' body seems to be neigh-invulnerable to general, physical harm, shaking off impacts with ease.
- Powerful Stomach - Whups stomach is able to consume and digest virtually any substance, including even metal or radiation. If it's small enough to fit down her throat, there's a good chance it will be destroyed. It should be noted that just because she can consume anything does not mean she wants to; some things cause her serious cramps to digest. Her preferred diet is sweets and meats, preferably in a rotten state.
Originally a Red Cap, Whups had a menacing role in the eternal conflict between her tribe, and the witches of the Cabal. While female Red Caps are far fewer in number, she was a formidable Hooligan in their ranks, and was especially skilled at sneaking into the homes of the Cabal, past their wards, and sabotaging their supplies.
That was until one day, when she was finally caught. Amused at the presence of a female Red Cap, the Cabal witches decided that instead of simply murdering Whups, they would imprison her. Still cruel, they literally tossed her into a cursed, pitch black, hellish underground pit; a type of solitary confinement. As the years passed, The Cabal actually forgot about Whups, and she remained in the pit for eighty years, becoming more and more insane. As the years passed, the hexes inflicted on Whups slowly disfigured and transformed her body. Now she barely resembles her old self.
An excommunicated, sympathetic Cabal (Weiji Chen) released Whups recently. She just wanders, disoriented, around Croatoa and Paragon. Since The Red Caps wouldn't accept her back with them, she is frequently alone, grumpy, and homeless.
