Stinky is one of the Goblins in the City Watch novel Snuff. He is first seen on the property of Constable Feeney Upshot after the arrest of Sam Vimes in connection with the suspected murder of Jethro Jefferson. Stinky was the first to ask the watchmen for "JUST-ICE!"

There are definite hints that there's more to Stinky than meets the eye; he knows things he couldn't possibly know, and alludes to being a protector of sorts for the Goblin race in general. He shows extreme resilience to physical damage, surviving what should have been a fatal injury at the hands (well, feet) of the infamous Stratford, by whom he was crushed underfoot and supposedly killed.

He is also at one point made a probationary special constable of the Shire Watch, and is the first Goblin watchman on the Disc and then becomes an operator of the newly erected clacks tower. While he does not know how to read, he is quick to learn the letters by their shapes. His ability to communicate with animals gives him the skills of a horse whisperer. When Sam Vimes — with reluctance bordering on fear — needs to mount a fast horse to chase after the murderer, Stinky calms the horse and gets it to kneel for Vimes to straddle it with ease.

His name

His name comes from his absolute stink. Sam Vimes noted that it wasn't so much a smell as a sensation of your dental enamel evaporating.

He is one of very few known Goblins to accept a soubriquet; most goblins consider their full names a sign of honour, with short names suggesting a goblin who has been dishonoured in some manner. The short name would be useful while interacting with Humans (as in an emergency situation as a Watchman) but, uniquely, he doesn't have (as far as we know) the more elaborate poetic name typical of Goblins.
