Its canonicity is in question but was once considered canon.
The Red Goblins are a rare sub-species of Goblins who were bred by some evil Necromancers in years past. They are far more evil then the 'mundane' Goblins and have little respect for other types of Greenskins or anybody else at all.
It is said that Red Goblins still serve their evil masters, although whether these still live is unknown.
