Nipshanks was the paid slave protector of Azariel. After years of positive coexistence, they became friends. Azariel decided to emancipate Nipshanks, and helped rescue his family from witches in the Yin-Sloth Jungles, thereby creating a blood debt for Nipshanks to repay.

He is a Goblin Janissary, who has converted to Osiris.
