A Riddleport native, Hank used to work at the Inn of the Golden Master with Kenoshi. After the Golden Master was destroyed, Kenoshi bought the Gold Goblin. He and Hank had just begun renovations when Lasdolon blew up the gaming hall, killed Kenoshi, and plucked out Hank's eye. All of that as a message to a group of adventurers known as the Guardians of Golarion. Out of respect to his one true friend, Hank rebuilt the Gold Goblin and took over all of Kenoshi's former operations.
