These giants of the fae possess incredible strength and determination. Once they give their loyalty, nothing can sway them from those they have sworn to protect. Honor walks in their footsteps.

Path of Honor (The History of Trolldom) Edit

As long as there have been mountains, there have been trolls. Known as giants, titans, and many other names, no culture does not mention them. Mortal traditions record them as benefactor and enemy and both are correct. The earliest oral traditions of the kith are known as The Chronicles of Leander, named for the one who first committed the epic to written form. The earliest myths and legends are told from this source. There are, however, many versions of this song with no one accepted as definitive. Nonetheless, it is from Leander that all histories of troll kind must begin. Firm knowledge of this past may aid in forestalling the coming Winter.

Origins of Trolls Edit

There are many differing beliefs on the origin of the trolls. If one were talking of the other kith, this might come as no surprise, but many express surprise that the trolls have deep and strong differences of opinion on their origins. It is, perhaps, a testament to their generally patient nature that such deep divisions would go unnoticed by others. Though there are many subdivisions, there are four primary theories: the traditional, the Danaist, the egalitarian, and the Athenian.

  • Danaists - Trolls who hold they were created by the mother of all fae, Dana, to protect all of her children, including the Tuatha de Danaan.
  • Egalitarians - Trolls who believe they were created as equals to the sidhe.
  • Athenians - Trolls who believe all fae sprang spontaneously from the dreams of humanity.

The Code of Dagda Edit

According to the troll scholar Nestra, writing in about 1580, the Code of Dagda sets forth a set of ideals and proscriptions that speak to the romantic and dutiful hearts of all trolls, whether they are Seelie or Unseelie. Allegedly handed down from the goddess Dana herself, the Code sets a high and noble position for all trolls and, by implication, all else who may try follow it as well.
