The Ghostie gobblies were creatures concocted by Violet out of pure hate, with the purpose of killing Rachel. However, using her talent for artistry Rachel was able to force them into killing Violet instead.
With the feeling that she was being chased by creatures of unimaginable horror, Rachel ran away from the Wizard's Keep, and after a long journey found herself in the sacred caves of Tamarang. There she discoved a spell drawn on the walls of the cave, next to one removing Richard Rahl's gift from him, that had her drawn in the middle. All around the picture were things she described as "awful beasts" who were like "ghosts made of shadow and smoke."
