Trolls are creatures who are always hunched forward yet walk upright, with rubbery skin and sunken eyes. Their famous regenerative abilities make them fearless in battle, apart from when the enemies use fire and acid to prevent such healing.

There are many types of trolls such as Fire trolls, Ice Trolls, and so on, and their blood is highly sought for as it’s a component of many potions. They can eat almost anything and when accepting rewards they make sure food is always offered as well.

While humans consider them all monsters, which they are, they are known to live in smaller societies, clans even, and certain social aspects are present. All of them have a name, names such as Tzuljin, Jaryaya, Yajdna, Zulja, Vujii, and Ugoki.

A good troll name can provide a sense of simplicity, savagery, and exotic origin. A single word is more than enough and it is very rare for one of them to have additional names, whether they created it themselves or were given by those around them.

Trolls are vicious and fearless large humanoids best known for their ability to regenerate. They mostly live in caves and similar lairs, and these voracious creatures will eat almost anything they can get their hands on. In battle, they fear nothing as their rubbery hide and the ability to regenerate protect them from almost any harm. While they don’t have a society per se, they often live in a group, up to a dozen. Think about how the character came to be, where do they reside, and what the future might have in store for this character and create a name worthy of this Troll’s ferocity.
