Christopher Halliwell: "You should update your Goblins entry. It'll come in handy some day."
Piper Halliwell: "Goblins?"
Christopher Halliwell: "Yeah, trust me. It's gonna get ugly." - Piper's son Christopher tells the sisters that they should update the Goblins' entry in the Book of Shadows[1]

Grotesquely evil phantoms, Goblins are said to be mischievous creatures with various powers and abilities. They are known to be comparable in size with Elves and Dwarves.

Folklore[]

As described in The Goblin Fields, Goblins are thin and brown creatures, two to three feet tall. Most are described as bald and if there were females among the group they could not be distinguished from the males. They exist in two realms, one physical and one spirit. They are fiercely loyal and often are allied with particular sorcerer or witch tribes, whom they protect and serve as an equally allied tribe rather than servants or slaves. "This perception might seem a bit strange to any not accustomed to the goblin outlook" because the Goblins often did what might be considered slave work for very little in return.

They can be called by an allied individual or group, summoned by spell, or called to bargain at particular places by individuals or groups not known to them. Because of their power they are much sought after, but because of the corruption of mankind, rarely found. Crossing them is a thing to avoid as they have refined a grudge to a fine art. They can be fierce and mind-numbingly frightening, and only the hardiest of souls are sent to strike a bargain with them. However they have a side which few ever see, which is their great love for those who are able to create an understanding and friendship with them. At the passing of such a person, they treat the body with proper respect and then quietly weep.

The Book of Shadows[]

When he first came to Halliwell Manor from the future, Christopher Halliwell searched the Book of Shadows for something that would help Paige Matthews return to her normal state after being turned into stone by a Titan, known as Meta. He didn't find anything, but he pointed out to Phoebe Halliwell that they needed to update their Goblins entry because things are going to get ugly in the future. The entry was never show however.
