Nir is a goblin that lives in the area near Twilight. When Kagu the Cunning acquired Kvanir and began rampaging across the countryside, Nir led a contingent of goblins unaffected by the bloodlust actually into Twilight itself. The town did not appreciate this, but tolerated them (barely). For the goblins, it was better than being under Kagu's mindless and rage-filled control.

In Codex V-Chapter 6 Nir petitioned that Kagu's head be given to him, so that he could try to become the new goblin warlord, and promised to bring peace to the area. If he was successful, he wished to be appointed to the Twilight town council. The party convinced the council to accept Nir's offer.
