She is intelligent and ambitious, with her eye on the 1st Provisions seat if it becomes available. Married to Forge.

Bio picture by:

Facet ~ Non-adoptable character

Scholar, low-ranked, but higher-ranking among the low trolls. She's in her mid-20's and has just recently been placed under Pigment's mentorship in the Library. Unhappy with her position, and with him (partially due to his unattractiveness) she'll do whatever it takes -- whatever it takes -- to better her position or to get out of a job she hates, and doesn't care who she uses or hurts to get what she wants. She's ambitious and this is the path she's used to advance all of her life. She's attractive as far as trolls go, knows it, and definitely uses it to her advantage.

Bio picture by:

Fen ~ Non-adoptable character

1st on the Provisions seat. Fen's specialty is growing foods inside the caves where light streams through cracks in the ceilings, augmented by systems of mirrors. Particularly fond of roots, but also very skilled in growing mushrooms of various kinds. Curmudgeonly old farmer type.

Bio picture by:

Grimthorn ~ Non-adoptable character

2nd on the Tactics and Arms seat. Not as brilliant a tactician as his superior, and was passed over for promotion to Head of House because he was lacking n that particular mental department. Still has a chip on his shoulder because of it, and would jump at the chance to put the younger Brightmetal in her 'proper place.'

Bio picture by: Chris T.

A high-ranked member of the House of Scholars, and a noted musical composer. Known most famously for "The Nocturne of the Late Bells". Died in 1804.

Bio picture by:

Marl ~ Non-adoptable character

Mid-ranked miner, a hard worker and extremely tough & strong, who has a talent for rough-edged socializing and is extremely resourceful. In our world, he'd be a card-carrying union member type. Has a bit of a wistful crush on First Seat Tinkerer Stillpoint, but knows he has no chance with her. That does not stop him from bringing her gifts of any interesting fossil or anomaly his fellows uncover in their mining.

Bio picture by:

Morel ~ Non-adoptable character

Low-ranking servant, Nanny to Candlewick, middle-aged in 2500. Subservient and insecure.

Mid-ranked member of the House of Tactics and Arms. Warrior and guard, assigned to maintaining the secrets housed in Special Projects and Studies.

Bio picture by:

Pigment ~ Non-adoptable character

High-ranking Scholar, much-too-strict on apprentices. He's been the head Librarian at the Library for countless years, and he's highly sought out as a mentor.

Bio picture by: Heidi H.

Quartz ~ Non-adoptable character

High-ranked member of the House of Provisions. An atypically greedy and vainglorious troll, she is heavily involved in Underhaven's black market. Daughter of Tallcrag and Soupstone.

Bio picture by:

Quickturn ~ Non-adoptable character

2nd on the Tinkers seat. Quickturn is adventurous, amiable, curious and sometimes foolhardy. Quickturn looks up to Stillpoint and is thrilled to be second in position to her. Still, he gets frustrated with her overly rigid ways of research. Quickturn's belief is it takes risks, mistakes, and sometimes just plain playing around to discover new things. He tries to convince Stillpoint of this, but only receives dark looks and a lecture on discipline.

Bio picture by: Heidi H.

Quill ~ Non-adoptable character

1st on the Scholar's seat. Holder of High Conclave's seat. Very wise and very old - she rose to power quickly, and has proved to be quite adept at holding into her high status. Age seems to have been more kind to her than most. Despite being in the 'waning years' of a troll's life, she's still smart, sharp, and active. Most figure she will probably continue to hold her high-ranking seats until her death, but she's been doing her best to groom a replacement.

Bio picture by: Heidi H.

Ratchet ~ Deceased character

High-ranking member of the House of Tinkers. He had a seat on the Tinker Conclave when he died, leaving a significant power vacuum in his wake which took time to sort out.

Bio picture by:

Redpike ~ Non-adoptable character

Low-ranking member of the House of Tactics and Arms. Once a mid-ranking tunnel guard, his career faced a number of bad turns in the early 2200s, resulting in a severe loss of status. Zealously anti-elf, and just as passionate about anything he feels. Husband of Bladesong, father of Ingot.

Bio picture by: Chris T.

Scholar, mid-ranked. He's still considered young, and has been serving as Quill's assistant for quite a few years.

Soupstone ~ Non-adoptable character

Upper-middle ranked member of the House of Provisions. Cook at the prestigious Grand Banquet Hall. Wife of Tallcrag, mother of Quartz. Kind, affectionate, touchy-feely.

Bio picture by:

Stillpoint ~ Non-adoptable character

1st on the Tinkers seat, Stillpoint is extremely organized, to the point of annoying others with her need to have everything in its place. She's also very focused and serious, lacking much in the way of a sense of humor. She's friendly and gets along with others, but often misses the point of jokes and she'd rather experiment in her workshop than join in on any comradery. Her focused research makes her an excellent inventor and she is well respected in this field. Mother of Candlewick.

Bio picture by: Heidi H.

Stonefist ~ Non-adoptable character

mid-ranked member of Tactics and Arms. Name given due to the powerful force of his weapon swings when in melee. Respects Grimthorn's opinion more than Brightmetal's seemingly increasing desire to make the military a more defensive organization.

Bio picture by: Stacy L.

Swiftknife ~ Non-adoptable character

mid-ranked member of Tactics and Arms. Entered that particular profession to be closer to her lover and companion, Stonefist, and found that the military suited her more than she expected. Is known for her stealthiness in combat, but her usually boisterous nature belies that subtle trait.

Bio picture by: Stacy L.

Tallcrag ~ Non-adoptable character

Upper-Middle-ranked member of the House of Provisions. A former trapper of surface-animals, now he oversees the hunting and trapping of the surface world's bounty. Raised himself in status party through an alliance with Blotter. Husband of Soupstone, father of Quartz.

Bio picture by:

Thumbprint ~ Owned by Chris

(Secondary Character)High-ranked member of the House of Scholars. Daughter of Cauldron and Inkstain. Archivist and caretaker of Trickleclaw, a captive Preserver whose existence is unknown to the general public. She is a sly political maneuverer, who speaks in very polite, carefully chosen words. She sometimes uses her skills as a manipulator of others for the benefit of Trickleclaw, whom she genuinely cares about.

Bio picture by: Chris T.

Tinderbox ~ Deceased character

(Female, House Of Scholars, deceased): One of the founders of the House Of Scholars. Her early tenure focused on reconstructing a complete history of her people from the scraps and survivors left among the reunited Six Strongholds.

Bio picture by:

Tunnelrat ~ Non-adoptable character

Mid-ranked member of Tactics and Arms, serving as an administrative assistant in Underhaven Security. A master of military efficiency and bureaucracy, who knows how to acquire the things needed for her fellow to do their jobs. Was demoted (on paper) several years ago, to provide cover for an undercover investigation.

Bio picture by: Chris T.

Vellum ~ Deceased character

A high-ranked Scholar, wife of Lodestone. Seemingly amicable to all on the outside, those who truly knew her knew how cold and calculating this troll could be. Was a champion of many a cause - if it would promote her or her husband's agenda. Mother of Chalk. Died in 2361.
