One thing has bothered me since I began catching up with the Trolls in Digital EQ. Is there inconsistency in some characters?
Drub develops her courage when she is exposed to Khavi, and is consistently brave afterwards. Maggoty accuses Picknose of being gutless, but he has his moments of glory. The rest of his family is a little confusing.
Tiny Trinket is understandably afraid when she first meets Ember, but she warms up to her. When humans break into King Picknose's tunnels, Trinket seems to have taken on some of Ember's toughness. Years later, she refuses to wield a sword when Drub commands it.
Drub laments the uselessness of the aging Oddbit. While she is ever the prima donna, doesn't she deserve credit for giving birth to a kingdom?
Flam is a bold character in the Shards storyline, although his motives are more mundane than that of the Elves. In "Rogue's Curse", however, he grovels in one scene and begs for mercy in another.
