|“||Goldo Golderson... now there's a name just asking for trouble.||„|
|~ Gnarl, referring to Goldo's obsession with treasure.|
Even though he was originally a comrade of Oberon Greenhaze, the elven hero, he had no qualms about enslaving the elves and destroying their forest.
He also had the war-machine Rollie created to safeguard his treasures, unleashing it upon the Overlord and his minions when they stormed his stronghold- in the end, the corrupted king was slained after Rollie was destroyed.
After Goldo's death, the Overlord has the choice of either stealing the king's considerable wealth of ill-gotten gold or freeing the last of the elven females, a race that Goldo and the other dwarves all but exterminated many years ago.
In the game's bonus content, it is revealed that Goldo's spirit is cursed in the Abyss by being transformed into a living statue of gold, effectively trapping him within the very substance he was obsessed with in life. He dies in the Abyss when his own people, having become gold-mining workers, went crazy with greed just like him and picked him to pieces.
- Like all of the seven heroes, Goldo symbolizes one of the seven deadly sins, in this case greed.
- The seven heroes are also a parody of a typical rpg-party, with Goldo being the dwarf.
- A statue of Goldo appears in the Netherdeep in Overlord: Fellowship of evil.
