#AtoZChallenge: Troll

T

This is my first year participating in the A to Z Challenge. The list of participants can be found here. Thanks to Arlee Bird and the co-hosts for hosting this awesome challenge. Check out the site here.

I’m also participating in a mini-hop that got started on theme reveal day when a few of us realized we had similar themes.  It’s called Supernatural A to Z. Click below to check out the list of participants.  🙂

 

Troll is today’s creature feature. The troll comes from Norse and Scandinavian lore. In Norse mythology it’s said that they live in isolated areas like mountains to be away from people. They are considered to be dangerous to humans. In Scandinavian lore, the troll is depicted in much the same way as in Norse lore. They stay away from humans and rarely help anyone. It is believed they live in family units (father and daughter, mother and son). They are usually associated with a particular landmark. The troll is seen as slow-witted and ugly.

    1. I’ve never heard the story. I know the troll that lives under the bridge part has been used in many stories. More research to be done. 🙂

    Trolls definitely are a main feature of my book. Only I give them high intelligence and a lot of blood lust.
