Ben lived alone in the Os-Mine hills for many years. During his daily drink at a pool that lay before a Dragon den, Ben saw seven creatures and screamed in disgust. He seized a stone and threw it at a small Goblin, killing her instantly. The other goblins leaped forward with their weapons raised, but he had run and disappeared into the forest.
During his life in the hills, Ben was rugged, with wild hair, a long beard and clothes hung in rags.

The Seven Goblins
The Os-Mine hills were named after Ben Os-Mine.
When Ben saw the Plumes, he yelled 'Goblins!'. From that moment on, the birds knew what to call the creatures.
