Monster memory[]

If ugly wore a hat, this kobold would wear a really big one. It looks as if it had attained chieftain status through many bloody challenges and battles. Its tough skin is covered in coarse, dark brown fur, speckled with nasty scars and dirt. Its mixed armor is well worn and bloody, looking as if it had been torn from the former leader's still warm corpse. The face of the kobold displays not much more than cunning possessed only by the toughest of canines, ears that have been cut many times and are always at attention, eyes that never stop moving yet always seem still, and a mouth that is stuck in a perpetual scowl, with sharp, broken teeth barely showing, as if to issue a challenge to any foolish usurper. A long wooden bow is slung over one shoulder, and a quiver of wicked arrows is strapped to its back. By far the nastiest, and probably most intelligent, of the dog-warriors. But that's still not saying much...
