"If you despise something you'll become a goblin."
-Line she says in one of Goblin Slayer's flashbacks

Elder Sister is the sole loved one of Goblin Slayer during his childhood. Her death is the primary circumstance that triggered Goblin Slayer's obsessive trait to kill all the Goblins.


In the few times she is seen in Flashbacks, she is seen wearing a long white and green dress with an occasional apron and styles her hair in a side ponytail draped over her shoulder.


Elder Sister was a caring and kind individual, but was also quite wise.


After her parents died from a plague outbreak she takes it upon herself to raise her younger brother all alone. As he was too young to remember his parents, his older sister was the only family he'd ever known. However she was very intelligent and taught Goblin Slayer, and many of the children of the village, how to read, write, and do arithmetic. She also taught Goblin Slayer many stories and life lessons that he took to heart after her death; notably of how goblins come from the green moon, and how if one became envious of another, they would become a goblin themself.

Goblin Slayer Year One Light Novel Volume 1

When her village is surrounded and attacked by a goblin horde, she has just enough time to hide her younger brother under their house's floorboards and tell him to not come out no matter what happens to her. Right after she hides him many goblins break into their house and quickly swarm, strip, and gang-rape her. After they are finished they then kill her in cold blood; all the while her younger brother watches through a crack in the floorboards. Her efforts to hide her younger brother were not in vain however, as he survives the attack to become the Goblin Slayer as an adult, albeit with some help from Burglar.
