Jamie Rinke, also known as Nilbog, is a crazed lunatic[2] who rules Ellisburg as his personal 'fiefdom'. He is a dangerous individual with the potential to be an S-Class threat, along with the Endbringers and the Slaughterhouse Nine.

PersonalityEdit

Over the course of ten years with virtually no human contact, Jamie has regressed to a childlike perception of himself as a god. Given this, he is practically incapable of deceit, seeing things in a fairy-tale mentality. His megalomaniacal tendencies include being unable to interact with people unless he sees them as being of equal status to himself. Fellow monarchs of their specific kingdoms.

This degradation has also decreased his ability to be a credible threat, but also made him more unpredictable.[3]

AppearanceEdit

Jamie is described as a man, potbellied and hunchbacked, wearing a patchwork costume with jarring patterns of stripes and checkers. He wears a cloth crown with a cloth mask featuring beads for eyes and a perpetual leer of a smile.

He frequently uses false puppet creatures that look like bloated versions of himself to deceive possible enemies.

Abilities and PowersEdit

Jamie has the power to create minions that are customized with feelings and powers of their own. He does this by recycling pre-existing living material.[4][2][5] His monsters have the ability to breed and give birth to more monsters, comeing in a variety of shapes and forms. This earns him an S-Class rating under the PRT Operations Manual as he is a "high level duplicator ... who operate[s at an] exponential degree" with his creations having their own fantastic abilities.[6]

As Nilbog, he is only limited in the amount of living matter he has to manipulate and shape. He converts this living matter from a target by enclosing them in one of his generated sacs. The target could fight free if able to, but otherwise once enclosed the targets biological material is converted into a 'slurry' as Nilbog transfers them through his body into another sac where the slurries component parts can now be used or can be converted.

He can't pull anything from thin air. He needs to be in contact with X amount of helpless biomass to produce X amount of minion stuff. If the target can move, they can fight free of the enclosing sac. Once enclosed, it's a question of being transferred from one point of contact with Nilbog to another, processed as they pass through his body.[5] The hunchback and robe are basically containers for the biomass (rendered into a slurry) that he's carrying on his person, and he wears a goblin suit (basically a created goblin with a Nilbog-shaped hole he can climb into) for the strength to haul it about.[7]

His creations form from his hands in placenta like sacs before he releases them.[1] However, his monsters only have a lifespan of around three to four years,combined with isolation from any new sources of protein which leads to their life span decreasing with each successive regeneration.[3][8][9]

He maintains a clairvoyant awareness of all of his creations and can rapidly distinguish between his children and any impostors.[citation needed] Further his creations have their own volition, though they will follow their creators orders.[10]

Reputation Edit

With his monsters, he wiped out the human population of Ellisburg and killed all but two of the operatives that were sent in. Nilbog would be classified as an S-Class threat, mentioned in the same breath as the Endbringers, the Three Blasphemies, and Sleeper.[11] however he is seen as slightly less of a threat as he stays within his "Garden of Eden".

HistoryEdit

BackgroundEdit

Jamie Rinke had a rich imagination as a child which he would draw on as an adult. Rinke was originally a banker and a loner before he was fired from his job. Alone in his apartment, withdrawn and isolated, he had his trigger event; purportedly linked to his imminent homelessness.[1] He created Polka and things only got better for him, and no one else, from there.

He conquered Ellisburg and defeated multiple PRT strike teams while driving off the accompanying capes from the Toronto Protectorate.[5] The capes fled, among the PRT personnel there were only two survivors, a woman and a man emerged alive from his 'garden'.[1]

Post-TimeskipEdit

After twelve years of relative solitude, Nilbog was visited by monsters like himself.[12] Nilbog and his guests were soon joined by others who claimed to be the Jeremy's peers.[13]

During his brief captivity, all he built was destroyed. His kingdom was invaded, and all his creations, running rampant due to his kidnapping, were put down. The Nine were able to rapidly find a way to have Nilbog reinforce their forces. Was sent to New York with Bonesaw to create even more chaos and bloodshed.[14] Nilbog would later be retrieved from the custody of the Nine by a Protectorate team.

Golden MorningEdit

Rinke participates in Worm's conclusion, and is thus given some degree of amnesty during the story's epilogue. He talks with the fairy queen. He was later seen a guest of the new Wardens after the final battle, talking with some rather interesting people.

TriviaEdit

  • Nilbog is goblin spelled backwards, and the name of the town form Trolls 2.
  • According to Valkyrie, he is the keeper of the "Maker" shard.[15]
  • Was created as a separate unrelated character by Wildbow before being transferred over to worm.

    I find there's a trend, and you definitely see it highlighted in PRT quest, but you see it in arguments like this too.

    The first mistake people make is forgetting the person involved. Nilbog was a human once, who watched TV and rented movies. He was lonely, odd, but fairly intelligent.

    He has a sense about nuclear weapons. He knows about armies and all that. Crazy as he becomes, he retains that.

    That's the first mistake. Forgetting that there's a man there, spending weeks and days with his creations, he loves them, they're his art, his existence. But he has his good moments, and he has his depressive, paranoid moments, where he thinks about how they're dying a little faster every generation, and that there's a very real possibility that people might try to assassinate him, or take his creations away from him by fire, gun, or bomb.

    He thinks about these things. He dwells on them, and he takes measures.

    The second mistake that Spacebattlers tend to make, in my estimation, is forgetting about the shards.

    As Nilbog's content to be passive, you can assume:
    1. His shard is broken.
    2. His shard is powerful, and it's being utilized to secure Scion/Eden's plans more than it's being used to stress test and evolve anything.
    3. Both of the above.

    So, question. What eventuality is this tightly packed biome of custom-made living things placed there for? Remember the long-term agenda, too. Conflict. What if he's there because the entities wanted something out there to generate chaos in the event that a Bakuda or a US army or a Level 9001 Dauntless annihilated the area and most of the local population? - Comment by Wildbow on Spacebattles

  7. ClubOfJacks:
    I thought his powers followed the laws of conservation of matter and energy. In other words to create a first generation Monster he would need: 1) pre-existing Body to be altered (whether it was initially Dead or alive). 2) Sustainable food source (Townspeople and animals living in the town before he got there). But since its been implied that he creates his things out of thin air, and can keep them active without feeding them, I feel less creeped out. But only just a smidge.

    Psst. Hunchback… hump on his back, like a camel. A camel stores water and Nilbog stores…

    Now see, those three dots at the end unsettle me worse than the entire chapter.

  8. “Your people are slowly starving. You make them eat each other to live, and desperately attempt to shoot any birds out of the sky so you can try to recoup what you lose. Bonesaw said they don’t live long. How long?” - Excerpt from Sting 26.4
  9. Nilbog had no doubt designed them to live off of a diet of insects, to supplement their diminishing supply of protein. - Excerpt from Sting 26.5

    I'm pretty sure his creations are completely loyal to him and would follow his orders, but when they don't have orders they'd basically have free will.
