Aaraaff was a mysterious multi-instrumentalist goblin whose role was playing the cadence in battle (also known as "battle born harmony"). He was behind the goblin troops at the Battle of Coxenburg. After bellowing death threats at his own comrades to bolster morale, he began to play an eccentric mix of free jazz. But the dissonance and disruptive rhythm led to the goblin army to be highly confused and they were quickly routed. Some goblins were even beguiled into marching into the river. This proved fatal, for goblins cannot swim as a result of the Dweeb gene. It is said that Aaraaff was possessed by the Drummer who wished to prove his mettle in military drumming. He failed.
