Trinket is a troll maiden famous among elves and all trolldom for her childhood antics and epic brattiness (even by troll standards). The dreamberry of her father‘s eye, Trinket—an occasional princess, depending on her family’s contemporaneous fortunes—always knows how to get what she wants. Spoiled from birth by her parents, in her youth copious tears and hysterical screams lay in wait for any adult brave enough to deny her even the slightest privilege.

That’s not to say the cantankerous troll is all bad. She did not inherit her ancestors’ disdain for elves, considering Ekuar a second “papa” (much to Picknose’s dismay) and Mender a perfectly eligible candidate mate. Young Trinket and Ember were often seen trading insults and ugly faces. Better relations prevailed in maturity, even if Trinket herself still hardly merits that term.

As shrewd as her mother Oddbit in manipulating Picknose, Trinket takes advantage of her diminutive height by dressing like a child even in adulthood, complete with bows and ribbons, to forever keep her position of princess-who-deserves-everything in her dad’s eyes.
