You’ve probably heard about trolls in fairy tales, I know your realm tend to feature them as big, aggressive and ugly. There are some like this in the Elemental Realm also, but most trolls look like you and me. Perhaps with a tail or a pair of fox ears. Trolls are known for their stories, which is something they collect. They’re also known to be extremely wealthy and wear very beautiful clothes. It’s well known that troll clothes don’t stain.
Some might stretch to call trolls earth elementals, but really, trolls are trolls. They have their own ways of doing things, their own kind of magic and traditions.
Trolls are also very helpful, like that time when farmer Johnsson said he’d give his best cow for someone to help him gather in the harvest. Trylle, a troll from the 6th kingdom, heard the farmer and got to work late that night. Leaving the harvest neatly stacked in the morning, Trylle took the cow from the barn and left thinking he’d done a great job. But in the days to follow the farmer was so mad he tried to steal the cow back. He couldn’t find it though. Trylle was thoroughly puzzled by the turnout and hasn’t bothered to help humans since.
