King of Clubs

Goblin King of Clubs.
Something for ChoW at The topic was to design a fantasy character based on a face card from a standard deck of cards: Spades, Hearts, Diamonds or Clubs, and either Jack, Queen or King.

While doing a little research, I learned that the suits represent the 4 castes of medieval society: Spades is Nobility, Hearts is Clergy, Diamonds is Merchant, and Clubs is Peasant. Armed with this tidbit, I decided that using a goblin to represent the peasant class would be sort of fun, if a bit elitist. (Sorry peasants!)

I also got hung up on the idea of a meat crown, so that happened.
