In the Author's words: Edit
To Nitrine, the world is her oyster - or at least, her tasty slice of pie. Gifted from birth with brains and abilities far beyond those of her fellow goblins (which makes her roughly as smart as a human being), she left her underground home to find fame, fortune, and other things. She is something of an inventor, with most of her inventions eventually blowing up (often that's actually what they're designed for). She rarely hesitates to lie, steal, cheat, fast-talk, backstab, betray, browbeat, sabotage, seduce, swindle, waylay, ambush or hoodwink anyone to further her goals - which generally involve having a good time.
