No one knows much about Grandfather. He’s been there since the entrance to the Goblin Market opened in the back of the Black Swan boutique on Fremont Street. He’s always appeared as a curmudgeounly, yet mischevious old man whittling endlessly in front of a big wodden door. He’s never been seen anywhere else 9and the door has never been seen unguarded).

Anyone who wants to enter the Goblin Market must first get the passphrase from him and he demands a price (either an onerous quest or juicy gossip). He always knows if someone gets the passphrase from soneone else instead of directly from him and he revokes the teller’s access, as well, until they do penance (somehow he always knows who told as well).

It is very unadvisable to attack Grandfather directly; he is more than capable of defending the gate from all but the most concerted attack (and then once you got into the Goblin Market… well, goblins aren’t known for their gentle, forgiving natures).
