Guttlekraw

King of the Frozen Mountain Trolls

Guttlekraw was the trolls’ troll, a murderous, self-centered, stonehearted tyrant—and those were his good points. An ancient creature of the first generations of trolls on the World of Two Moons, he suffered no fools and dealt viciously with his enemies, be they elves or other trolls. Proudly wearing a ring of severed elf fingers as a crown, he ruled with a brightmetal fist.

He founded the troll kingdom under the Frozen Mountains, but when glaciers encroached he led his people south and settled in the caverns under a wide forest. After centuries, he was eventually deposed by the young upstart Greymung and banished with his loyal followers back to the Frozen Mountains.

There he stewed in his bitterness at losing his kingdom, and after many more centuries, sent his hardened warriors back to invade the forest trolls and exact his revenge on Greymung.  He enslaved the survivors and brought them back to work in his mine-pits.

Guttlekraw was manipulated by the crafty Two-Edge into battle with the Go-Backs and Wolfriders for the Palace of the High Ones. He met his end in that war when Kahvi beheaded him after allowing him to be mauled by wolves.
