Goblin Slayer Volume 2

Rhea Scout and his party of three other adventurers were at the Adventurer's Guild awaiting their promotion interviews. The party was feeling anxious whether they would be bumped up to Sapphire, except for Scout who seemed strangely nonchalant. Rhea Scout was then called first to be interviewed.

Immediately upon entering the interview room, Scout briefly remarked to himself on the three interviewers in front of him (Goblin Slayer, Guild Girl and Inspector). After assuming Goblin Slayer was an individual out for money like himself, Scout suggested a promotion to Ruby or Bronze rather than Sapphire. Upon being asked about his new attire, Scout proudly displayed his new boots. Unfortunately, this led Guild Girl to inquire into how he was the only member in his party who had attained such expensive equipment. Caught off guard, Scout alibied that his family had given some money, but Inspector denounced it as a lie: he had found treasure while scouting for his party and kept it for himself instead of sharing it. After Rhea Scout gave an apology, Guild Girl announced that he would be demoted to Porcelain and be banned from adventuring in this town. Scout protested, but backed down after Guild Girl suggested he'd be demoted for filing false quest reports. Out of options, he pleaded with Goblin Slayer to defend his case, but to no avail. He briefly thought about attacking Guild Girl, but the presence of Goblin Slayer prevented him from doing so. Having lost all of his composure, Scout declared they would not forget this, and angrily stormed out of the room.

Goblin Slayer Volume 3

Before the festival, a cloaked Rhea Scout watched Goblin Slayer at the guild hall.[3][4] The following night at the tavern, Dark Elf hired him to create confusion in the town.[5]

During the festival, he ambushed Goblin Slayer and Guild Girl. With his fast reflexes, Scout managed to get the drop on Goblin Slayer with a poisoned dart before maniacally celebrating his apparent victory. However, before he could attack Guild Girl, Goblin Slayer, who was feigning death, caught Rhea Scout off guard and killed him by slashing open his stomach.[3]


Rhea Scout proved to be an exceptionally fast fighter, which forced Goblin Slayer to play dead to kill him instead of engaging him head-on.
