There's not much I can do to make this short, so I'll spoiler it to reduce my post's footprint. I know this is not exactly what you asked for but if you want I could share some adventure stories that could add to the "lore." Like the time Durvin Gest got his ass kicked by Durvin Gest at the GenCon 2016 special :-)
After the trouble with the Shadow Lodge who used goblin slaves for manual labor and guards. The Society was left with an infestation of the little buggers when the Shadow Lidge was brought back into the fold. Kreighton Shane wondered if they could be trained to be productive agents. So starts his grand social experiment. He picked out an unusually intelligent and somewhat "dim" (even by goblin standards) goblin who he convinced was the reincarnation of Durvin Gest. He was instructed in the ways of magic and combined with his skill with a small blade became a magus. To get around the goblin's natural hate/fear of writing, Kreighton developed a way to depict the spell book pictorially. That and the addition of many flashy energy-based spells meamt it was well received.
The experiment worked exceedingly well and Durvin has made great advancement (level 8) and proven to be a successful agent. That he goes around introducing himself as "Durvin Gest, hero of Pathfinder" is no end of amusement to Kreighton. He even thinks his sword "pale maiden" was reincarnated with him as well.
He is really smart but with a child-like naïveté and impulsive attention deficit. Despite a Charisma of 5, usually has the highest diplomacy at the table (thank you clever wordplay) which makes for very entertaining social encounters. He is no end of fun to play and have had numerous requests by local players to play with him. Easily my favorite PFS character and perhaps my all-time favorite rpg character.
