A group of goblins that came to the North Cave had green skin, yellow-orange eyes, pointed ears, and were taller than an average human.
Goblins are part of the demon races that reside in the Dark Territory. They are rarely seen by the inhabitants of the Human Empire due to the work of the Integrity Knights. They are able to venture into the Human Empire as raiding parties as per the plan that was set in motion by Rath. Kirito and Eugeo encountered a small goblin raiding party and rescued Selka from the goblins after they defeated the goblin party's leader.
