Moist had a rough life before he came to Ankh-Morpork that last time. (He'd been around before.) I don't know about the goblin-helping, but all the risk-taking and highly-physical activity seems like the old Moist von Lipwig to me.

Me too! Moist loves to live on the edge. Using the golems as he did is not unlike the risks he took Going Postal. If anything Raising Steam has Moist returning to the sort of form he was in, in Going Postal.
