- pg.165, The Last Wish (UK edition)
Hobolds are mythical creatures who wear red hats. They are apparently to be feared, but no reason is given. They are mentioned by the villagers in Upper Posada in the short story "The Edge of the World".


  • "Hobold" is almost certainly a misspelling of "kobold," as the creatures are obvious referencing Red-Caps, goblin like creatures that would blugeon people to death and then dip their cap in the blood.
