Papa Hobold was a leader of a hobold village. He and his villagers guarded a nearby hobold sanctuary – made up of tiny, engraved megalithic stones similar to druid circles. They knew magic and could summon a fiend whenever necessary.
Around 1272, hobolds got into a conflict with Gargos of Gemella whom they beat with magic tricks for trespassing. They might have killed him but Papa Hobold ordered the mage to be tied, gagged and hanged upon an oak.
- Papa Hobold is an obvious homage to Papa Smurf, one of The Smurfs protagonists.
