If you look at Kore reveal, you'll see he has blue eyes.
Forgath has brown eyes.
They are not the same dwarf.

I haven't seen eye colour in anyone in Goblins, just pupils with a sheen on them...but then, I may just be unobservant.

EDIT: That said, Kore's eyes do look blue in the reveal.

Like I said in my rambling post earlier, it's also possible that Kore is an entirely separate dwarf, but has still bonded with a holy-energy Klik in the way I described. It's also possible that I'm completely wrong and energy Kliks don't work that way...but I'm really keen to find out.

[*]My theory is that Kore will save the world in the end by taking the axe back to hell. It will be the classic evil character redeems himself by sacrificing his life to save the world

I'm basing it on big ears and complains conversation about how hard it is to get down to hell and only high levels characters have a chance (http://goblinscomic.com/comic/11022016-2) Kore is probably very high level.

Ooh he is redeemed when someone cast remove curse on him, because he is cursed. (http://goblinscomic.com/comic/08132016-2) last panel)

Forgath is going to learn that next level (http://goblinscomic.com/comic/04122015) second panel.

Finally, these are the holes he uses to get down to hell. (http://goblinscomic.com/comic/01302017-2)

I accidentally started a second thread about this, and annoyed a certain Lego Maniac (I'm not sure if he was Zack or Jack), so I'll post here. I also didn't, at first, state my theory because some people prefer to have fun theorizing themselves and might not want to read it, so I waited until people responded with a query, if this was wrong, then I do apologize. That said, my theory is that Kore is using Jeremy Bentham and John Stuart Mill's philosophy of Utilitarianism, possibly Consequentialism, but I think the first is the correct answer. That theory states that the only moral actions are the ones that bring about the greatest good. Preventing a Demon Lord from taking over that plane of existence is a concrete, definable greater good, not nebulous as some people might say. Kore is a rat bastard, he is a monster, he commits horrific crimes, but, as the flea demon said, he is not evil. Why? The Axe of Prissan. If an evil creature got hold of it, it would bring forth an unstoppable Demon Lord who would claim dominion over that world.

My theory is that for years Kore guarded The Axe as a right and true Paladin for a number of years, and somehow lost it, and that's when he, well, lost it. If any evil found The Axe, well, then a Demon Lord takes over this plane, making it, literally, Hell on Earth, so how do you prevent that? You eradicate evil, all evil, even potential evil. No matter what dark deeds you do in the pursuit of this is justified, because if you don't, Darker Deeds will follow. Torture? A Demon Lord will torture everybody for a thousand eternities if you waver in your duty. Killing an innocent? Better that than they be under the cruel attentions of said Demon Lord. No matter how it stains your own soul, it is to prevent a great evil from claiming not a soul, not a town, not a county, not a kingdom, but a world. It's his only moral choice.

I, personally don't think he should be of Good Alignment, but I'm not writing the comic. If you can find a hole in my theory, please, respectfully point it out, if you can't do it respectfully, find some bricks and wall yourself off from me.
Hey, I'm writing something. Check it out.
