My character is Goblin the Gob who lives in world of monsters without humans. The story begins when he finds that he has traveled back in time from 26 to 20, a less than desired transition especially when he changes the series of events that lead him out of his dreary hometown on the adventure where his knowledge of the past would have been helpful.
Previously kick out of the family business to join the navy, Goblin who hasn’t realized that he traveled back in time thinks he having a nice dream spending time with his family which they take as him kissing up not to be sent off so Goblan Goblin’s sibling is sent off in the draft instead.
Yes, Goblin is the name of a classic monster to us but in this world, they are known as Gobs with each Gob adding letters on to make a name it is a little joke that the main character is named Goblin.
Goblin was a riding off his family’s coat tails who never took anything seriously till he sent off on his adventure and since wasn’t sent back to an earlier age where he could turn his public opinion easily with his new found work ethic and knowledge of the world, he is stuck as a loser in his small town eyes.
This fortunately misfortunate of this situation is no surprise to Goblin because he has net zero luck, he lucky in a pinch and misfortunate in windfalls. He has grown to accustom to hollow victories.
