The series’ main character, an experienced silver ranked adventurer who only concerns himself with hunting goblins. The jobs he takes only involve goblins and takes no others.
Despite being a silver-ranked adventurer, Goblin Slayer’s choice of equipment poorly reflects his rank. He is often seen equipped in grubby leather armor with a chain mail underneath, paired with his signature cheap-looking helmet
His style of combat favors more on pragmatism such as setting traps, using their own weapon against the user, and taking whatever advantage that may come. He even uses his own imagination of using a protection spell.
His desire to kill goblins stems from two places: to prevent what happened to his village happening to others and to get revenge by eliminating every single member of their race. To this end, he has a single-minded devotion that has led him to being rigorous in hunting them down, leaving nothing to chance, and pushing those under his tutelage into being just as prepared. He will not hesitate to put himself against odds that will all but ensure his death, being more than willing to face off against a goblin horde of at least 100 in an effort to kill as many as he can before they kill him.
