Feature: The New Tenth or Troll


Go to Tribes:The New Tenth


Volkar & Stoltvar - Leaders of the New Tenth


Volkar and Stoltvar were conceived by half-sister Trolls, and were born the same year. They are all but brothers, and were captured by an Ogre patrol when Hitler's armies drove people eastwards. It is revealed by them, Hitler was an Ogre clone in human form, as was Napoleon.

They guided the Allied Tribes into the Ogre's Berlin stronghold via an underground passage. Later Volkar becomes elected Leader of the Trolls, and learns how to rule his people, with help from other Tribes.

Volkar asks John to create a constitution, because they only have Family Rules, and John is glad to assist; that is, until he learns of their funeral rights.

Stoltvar becomes deputy leader, and focuses on the welfare of their people, addressing concerns of their newfound freedom, and working socially to promote a new understanding of whom they are as a Tribe.

Over a period of years, the Trolls prove to be great allies, being an open a sharing Tribe who welcome all visitors; except the Ogres.

When the Allies battle the Ogres, Volkar is the first to offer men in support. Later, they are trusted to form a fighting unit, and proving formidable in the battlefield, they are soon allowed to create an army. Llwydd takes a personal interest in training their troops, once they have proved themselves.


One would think it unlikely for a Tribe of slaves to feature tattoos as a sign of their clan; freedom is an alien concept to them. So why so they paint their heads?

The reason is simple. Originally the Ogres branded them, and the forehead was the most visible place. This was to assist Ogre generals (administrators in this case), keep track of different Troll groups and kill any troublesome clans.

However, the Trolls proved peaceful and compliant, so the practice was abandoned. One day, a small boy, wanting to look like his father, copied the design using ink, and the practice spread.

By chance, another boy discovered that the ink stayed if injected into the skin, by stabbing. Over centuries, the practice spread to all, the tattoos were embellished, and worn proudly by all. The Ogres did not object, because they could still tell who belonged to which clan.
