The Reproductive cycle of Goblins/hobgoblins

In writing this book, I stumbled across an interesting problem - making the story fit my anal retentive need to have things, while fanciful, be plausible.  What I decided to do was to restructure the some of the legends of goblins and hobgoblins to fit what I wanted them to be.  One of the primary motives was to make hobgoblins and goblins the same species, just the opposing genders.  Why? I needed to create a way that made sense to me on why the character, Shirtazia, would be behaving in the manner she does in the book.  To that end, I came up with this:

goblins and hobgoblins

Physical characteristics

Goblins and hobgoblins, though in popular lore portrayed as two distinct races, are the other’s gender opposite.  Goblins (Gobelinus Hominem) are the male of the species while hobgoblins (Gobelinus Feminaeris) are the female of the species.

The Goblin is anatomically similar to an aged, smaller homo erectus with a few differences. Physically, the difference is noticeable in the average stature and facial features. The tallest hobgoblin is five foot nine inches on record, the shortest being three foot, though the average height is five foot five inches.  The tallest goblin is recorded at three foot nine inches, the shortest at two foot ten inches with the average being three foot five inches.  Hobgoblins are larger than their goblin counterparts for the purpose of reproductive purposes; just as the muscle tissue of the hobgoblin are much more compact to allow the female to overpower a male attempting to elude her amorous advances.

 Goblins that have not altered their appearances with shimmering (see shimmering) have elfin ears, the tips pointed rather than rounded that accentuate the sharpness in their hairline, chin and nose.  The colour of the goblin skin is determined by the environment to how dark or light that it appears to be.  Because of the extreme stress that goblins undergo during the birth and maturation period, their skin often develops wrinkles within the first three years of life.  The goblin fingernails resemble the homo erectus when they are at rest but in a defensive stance these nails have a secondary set that can extend from the cuticle.  The edges of these secondary nails are jagged and capable of penetrating the hide of an elephant. The major difference in the anatomy of the goblin and homo erectus is in the reproductive organs (see the reproductive cycle of the goblin).

The goblin age can be equivocated to the homo erectus in that while human age is by the base of decades the goblin’s can be assessed by centuries. The oldest goblin on record was nine hundred and twenty eight before he died of natural causes while the oldest hobgoblin lived to the age of nine hundred and forty-two. The average age of a goblin and hobgoblin in a densely populated area of goblins is one hundred and twenty-one, though as the population density of hobgoblins decrease, the mortality rate elongates.

Shimmering is a camouflage technique used primarily by hobgoblins. There are few instances where a goblin has used shimmering. Goblins detest the look of a human while a hobgoblin will socialize with a human over another hobgoblin.  A hobgoblin can soften and blur her features to pass for a member of the homo erectus by vibrating her body four times faster than the human eye can register.  This vibrating motion is so subtle that the air displacement around her is negligible, if at all felt by a human.  Often this displacement is reasoned to be a slight draft. Shimmering requires aural energy and as long as a hobgoblin has contact with a mortal for three quarters of an hour every day, she is recharged for the remainder of that day.  This contact does not require actual touching but a close proximity no greater than six inches from the generator of the aura.

The goblin species, because of the degree of potential kinetic energy their bodies may have to absorb in the act of shimmering, are three times denser in muscular tissue than the average homo erectus.  This natural conditioning makes the being faster, stronger and far more resilient to physical damage due to increase in the elasticity of the being’s skin molecular make up.

The personality of a goblin is far more abrasive and abusive towards humans and hobgoblins alike than to another goblin.  Goblins are solitary creatures, preferring the company of the animals that they were raised around or living in abandoned human dwellings.   Goblins are nomadic until they find an area that is relatively free of hobgoblin ‘hunting’ territories. Before the eradication of their natural forest habitat, goblins used to live in packs for protection against the hobgoblin.  When attacked the pack would surrender or force the weaker or lamer members of the pack to fornicate with the hobgoblin, ensuring the survival of the stronger members of the pack for hunting and gathering purposes.

Hobgoblins are far more socially adept, often using their shimmering to interact with the local human population. Hobgoblins will not interact socially but are repulsed by goblins except for when in heat. Hobgoblins have a territorial pheromone in their urine that warns other mature hobgoblins away from their marked territory.  If another mature hobgoblin invades the first hobgoblin’s territory, purposefully or unintentionally, it will result in the death of the weaker hobgoblin.  Both goblins and hobgoblins will allow immature goblins and hobgoblins to observe their behaviour from a distance as long as the immature ones do not interfere with the daily rituals that the goblin or hobgoblin have.

The Reproductive organs of goblins

Just as their outlook on life, the reproductive cycle of the goblin and hobgoblin in ingrained in violence. A newborn goblin is not reared by either a goblin or hobgoblin but is left to either survive or die.  The gobfant mortality rate is twenty-three percent, ten percent higher than pre-industrial revolution as more of the natural areas of goblinhood have been replaced by structures.

Gobelinus hominem

Flaccid, the penis of the goblin resembles the shape and texture of the average mortal man with the exception of the glans being slightly thinner and not as round with a quarter inch thick holey spinal cord like cartilage ridge that runs from the base of the scrotal sac underneath the corpus cavernosum urethrae and frenulum to the metus on the tip of the glans.

Erect, the penis of the gobelinus hominem differs from the mortal male. The corpus cavernosum penis does not increase in girth size with the introduction of increased blood flow but does become slender as the cartilage ridges filling with blood engorged sinew elongate the corpus cavernosum penis almost twice its length.  The glans of the penis becomes triangular in shape as the majority of the mass of the frenulum is absorbed into the cartilage, resembling an arrow head.  The cartilage, saturated with the blood and muscle and cellular tissue, has a tip that extends out of the meatus three sixteenths of an inch that is sharp enough to create incisions with the least amount of pressure applied upon it, effectively turning the penis into a small pike.

As in mortal men, the goblin scrotum is the area responsible for the creation of sperm.  Unlike mortal men, who are constantly producing sperm from maturity on, the goblin’s testes (gestes) are only operational just before projected copulation otherwise the gestes are in hibernation just as the penis remains flaccid until arousal is instituted, usually by the pheromone tracer from a hobgoblin.
During sexual intercourse, the triangular the head of the penis also impales the ovary sac of the hobgoblin as well as slicing deeply into the vulva and the vaginal opening in order to flood the vaginal opening with blood.  This pool serves as a thinning agent for the release of the sperm that is ejaculated with the consistency of molasses. The mixture of blood, sperm and vaginal mucus then are pumped into the tattered ovary sac to allow fertilization of the eggs contained within. Once an egg has successfully been fertilized, the egg produces a beta-adrenergic agonist hormone as well as a neuromuscular agent that signals the nerves in the penis to return to flaccidity and temporarily paralyzes the goblin from withdrawal of the penis or moving off the hobgoblin for a twenty four hour period.

Another note of the effects on goblin civilization from the mortal society is the use of Viagra in goblins for suicidal purposes.  It has been reported by the Celestial Bureau of Vital Statistics there has been a twenty-one percent increase in suicides by goblins since the introduction of Viagra into the population.  The commonest form of suicide is the goblin takes the pill then leans over with his chin jutting out the most likely area that the erection will form. It is not unusual for hobgoblins to socialize with mortals, the amount of hormones stored in their mammary glands make their sexual appetite quite high.

Gobelinus feminaeris

In the goblin reproductive process, the hobgoblin is the aggressive gender. When in heat (which occurs foreighty-seven hours every thirty six point four years after their first one hundred and twenty-one years of existence) hobgoblins release the sex pheromone, gobrosia, which activates the goblin’s desire for copulation (necessary as for the majority of goblins the inactive hormone gestosterone production of the testes leaves no sexual desire).  The drawback to this pheromone is that it is very concentrated which by having a greater mass does not remain airborne for very long.  The traditional mating ritual of goblins and hobgoblins is that the hobgoblin, who is stronger and larger than the goblin, pins the goblin down on the ground then sprays the pheromone directly into the goblin’s face to awaken the gestes and the creation of sperm.

Whereas the mammary glands in mortal woman play a significant role in the post-birth cycle, the mammary glands in a hobgoblin are for pre-copulation purposes. Sharp cilia which rest just under the surface of the areole but when arousal occurs, the puffing of the nipple pushes these quills to just above the skin line to deliver a series of hormones from six ducts located within the mammary tissue.  These hormones, dopamine, orexan, prolactin, serotonin, oxytocin and lutrophin in the form of a syrup liquid that slickens not only the nipple but the majority of the surface of the areole. The hobgoblin either forces or coaxes the goblin to rub his lips tongue and nose around her breasts that stimulate the release of these hormones which put the goblin into a trance of lust and the want to mount the hobgoblin for procreative purposes.

Due to the precise movements needed to successfully conceive, the hobgoblin have small cilia that run along her gluteus maximus that secrete a venom that once absorbed by the goblin’s skin causes the cessation of gesterone and extreme pain to discourage rear mounting.

The outer genatlia of the gobelinus feminaeris in a non excitable state, as with its male counterpart, the vulva and clitoris is barely discernable from a mortal woman.  The inner reproductive organs differ greatly however in the gobelinus feminaeris from a mortal woman’s.  There is no uterus or fallopian tubes; the hobgoblin’s eggs, which she has had since birth, are stored in an ovum sac that is attached just inside the cervical opening. During copulation the sac is punctured allowing for the fertilization of the ova.  Once the ova have been fertilized, the hobgoblin’s gestrogen mutates into gesterone and signals the engorgement of the clitoris.

The hood of the clitoris folds back to expose the clitoris, which is a miniature version of the gobelinus homenim’s penis, with the cartilage ridge intended to perform in the same manner as the penis on a smaller scale. The clitoris, rubs against the pelvic muscle of the goblin, slicing through the skin to the muscle where the second function of the clitoris begins. The clitoris has a opening that once the thin layer of skin that covers it has been exposed due to the friction of close physical contact that leads directly to the cervical opening. When the clitoral opening exposes itself to air, the vacuum created by the penis shoots the combination of blood, sexual liquids, unused sperm and fertilized ova through the clitoral opening into the muscle of the goblin’s pelvis. The re-rounding and shortening of the penis inside the vaginal opening due to the beta-adrenergic agonist hormone and neuromuscular agent squeezes the penis tightly against the walls of the vagina tightly, popping a series of tiny postules that line the top of the vaginal opening.  These postules contain a blood clotting agent that then is sucked up the clitoral opening to seal the ova inside the muscular tissue of the goblin. Though there is some blood clotting agents that remain in the vaginal and clitoral openings, there is not enough to stop the haemorrhaging the damage to the cervical wall the penis has done.  The result is that within two hours, the hobgoblin dies with a goblin paralyzed atop of her.

It should be noted that while the clitoral hood opens naturally, this process can be willed by the hobgoblin for the hood to fold back to expose the clitoris pre-insemination to heighten her sexual pleasure or for self-satisfaction requirements.  This procedure is not widely practiced however as it increases the hormonal quantities the body produces, leaving the hobgoblin to be driven into hyper-sexually excited state  from the pressure of the ovarian sac that has continued to expand until the sac becomes so thin that it bursts. The fluids and the eggs then are flushed out of the vaginal opening leaving the hobgoblin barren.  Without the sac containing the ova the hobgoblin is not only barren but loses her ability to manage the gestrogen production that ordinarily is controlled by the ovary sac. This condition leaves the hobgoblin in a permanent heat.

The development of a goblin

The first seventy two hours is considered the most dangerous time in the gestation period of a viable gobelinus zygote(called a gygote).  During this period it grows at the rate of six billion, two hundred and eighty million, seven hundred and eighty-one thousand and six hundred eight6 cells per hour which requires the gygote to absorb nutrients from the host constantly to continue at this rate.  If the host expires or if the host is strong enough to remove the gygote, it will perish.  After this seventy two hour period the gygote’s cellular composition has begun to specialize processes and that one of which is a thin synaptic hotwire that slices through the host’s muscle and tendons to the pelvic splanchnic nerve system to assume control of the parasympathetic nervous system, which promotes the digestion and ejection of wastes to reroute the necessary nutrients the zygote is required to absorb through the blood vessel system that surrounds the zygote. It is uncertain whether the goblin host is aware of the gygote or if the trauma of having his penis stuck inside the corpse of a hobgoblin for approximately twenty two hours causes a short term memory loss.

For the period between the gygote and geoetus, there is no delineation of gender.  The gender factor is based on the amount of sunlight that the host body absorbs beginning for twenty four hours on four hundred and eighth hour of gestation.

Greater than four and one quarter hours creates a hobgoblin

Lesser than four and one quarter hours creates a goblin

Equal to four and a quarter hours creates a gobhob

The base hormone, gesterone, is exuded by the host’s pores onto the surface of exposed skin.  This exposure deteriorates the hormone from its pure form to the point where it turns into gestrogen, the femine hormone which is then absorbed by the host’s skin into the stomach where the geotus then becomes the sex of the hormone absorbed.

It should be noted that with the invention of artificial uv lighting, there have been cases of gesterone being fully deteriorated leaving nothing for the geotus to absorb.  In these cases, the hobgob, as they are known as, are born without external reproductive characteristics with only a flap covering the urethra for liquid waste expulsion.

On the 33rd day the host can no longer sustain the gobetus and his own nutritional requirements for optimal functioning.  At this point, the gobetus, its fingernails having formed into a biological scalpel, tear through the hosts’ abdominal wall into the stomach.  The acid eats at the gobetus’s thick crust of waste that has formed around the skin and tissue until the fecal prison has been eaten away.  What stomach acid that hasn’t been used then eats away at the original incision the hobgoblin’s clitoris had made in order to allow quicker access for the heterotrophic baterica and various insects for a hastened decomposition.  At this stage the gobetus does not have functioning lungs so it converts the end gases of the decomposition process of the acetogens in creation of co2 and hydrogen to create water and oxygen through cells called fermacellia.

The gobetus will continue to grow until there is no more material to be absorbed.  This stage varies upon the environmental conditions outside the host such as temperature and humidity.  In this time as flesh and tissue are being consumed by the maggots and lichen, the lungs develop and take over respiratory responsibilities.

Once this occurs, the gobetus bursts from the goblin host, feasting upon the maggots until it is engorged then crawls away.  The approximate size fluctuates, depending on the amount of time it has spent in the constrained environment of the goblin, as well as the physical size and girth of the goblin, though on average the size of a gobetus at this point is eleven and three quarters inches in length.

The gobetus then finds a den of a omnivorous animal, particularly in northern areas of foxes while in Africa the gobetus opts for hyena dens. Before entering the den, the gobetus will roll in the urine of the host family to cover itself with that families scent.  This act plus the release of a soothing pheromone wills the parental unit to adopt the gobetus until it outgrows the den.  The gobetus, now considered a goddler, then leaves to find his or her own den to live in.

The goddler period lasts for four years where it can grow up to three feet though its appearance will not alter, the way it looked the day it left the hosts body is the way it will look the for its natural life. In the fourth year the goblin or hobgoblin’s tongue sheds, altering its ability to stomach raw meats and for a brief time until the age of maturity will mentor with a goblin or hobgoblin that has not yet experienced heat or being hunted by a hobgoblin in heat.  Once this passage of puberty has taken place, then goblins and hobgoblins take on the traditional behaviours assigned to them in lore.
