Baldur's Gate Wiki

This particular Hobgoblin is a unique one. There are two in-game: one is found near the Beregost Cave in the South Beregost Road area, the other found in the canyon area of Ulcaster. They are immediately distinguishable from other hobgoblins by their incredibly dark skin and bright green tunic.

They are particularly noteworthy for having a pair of Boots of Stealth, related to a quest received in Beregost. Oddly enough, in Baldur's Gate GTRBPSK Icon BG1Baldur's Gate (1998)

you may find a single pair on each of them, despite only one pair being stolen. In Baldur's Gate LOGOBG00001 Icon SoDBaldur's Gate:

this is fixed: when one is dispatched or has been pickpocketed, the other hobgoblin will have the boots removed from its inventory by the game script.
