This miniature particular Goblin worked as a scribe and a messenger for the Great Goblin in The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey film. He sits in a bucket on a pulley to get around, and he records things that go on in Goblin Town. He was a tiny and malformed goblin with puny legs. He uses his long finger nail to write with and holds a parchment also. If you look close, his legs are deformed and whithererd. Because he cannot walk, he must get around on a pully with a seat attached to it. Before the goblin king gives him orders, he is seen laughing at Thorin because he does not know that Azog is still alive.
Portrayal in the FilmsEdit
In The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey Chronicle, the Goblin Scribe is described as the Great Goblin's son from some marriage he'd prefer to forget, so he gave him an administrative job away from the throne." He is in the movie for a short time but seems to be a popular character. Also his nose is slightly higher then his eyes giving him a very unique look.
