It is currently unknown whether they are a naturally recurring subrace, a freak mutation resulting from the goblins' Alchemy and Engineering experiments or maybe mutated by the Old Gods like the Naga.
Gilgoblins have many similarities to goblins but also many differences. Their skin is blue with tiny dots. Like goblins they have a prominent pointy nose, however the gilgoblin's nose seems to have no nostrils. Their necks have what look to be gills which explains the absence of nostrils. Gilgoblins have fins on ends of their arms, with webbed hands and feet almost certainly for swimming. Their hair resembles seaweed and their ears are practically fins.
