The main 6 of the Trollself comic, including Stella's heretofore unseen troll. Any information not given below (like reasoning behind elements in their designs, or their usernames, or their captcha-modus or strife specibi, titles, lands, what have you) I will be glad to answer if you ask in your comments!

From left to right:

Chiron Messie (unversedYouth) - The hacker of the group. His first name comes from 2060 Chiron (also known as 95P/Chiron), a planetoid/asteroid that orbits between Saturn and Uranus. His last name comes from Messier objects, astronomical objects that resemble, but are not, comets. His symbol is one of the alcehmical symbols for fire. His blood color is Mikado Yellow.

Benelo Hamali (wanderingStoryteller) - A mutant sea-dweller blueblood who can breathe air and fresh water, but not salt water. His first name comes from part of the names of Alpha, Beta, and Gamma Librae (Zubenelgenubi, Zubeneschamali and Zubenelakrab, respectively). His last name also came from Zubenelschamali. His symbol is one of the alchemical symbols for air. His blood color is Steel Blue.

Gliese Aldeba (starArrangement) - An occasionally high-strung troll who enjoys the troll theatre. His first name comes from the Gliese Catalogue of Nearby Stars. His last name comes from Aldebaran, one of the stars in the constellation Taurus. His symbol is one of the alchemical symbols for Aqua Vitae. His blood color is Sap Green.

Hyades Zemlja (necroMatador) - The highest ranking among the characters, and an artistic sea-dweller. Her first name comes from the Hyades star cluster in the constellation of Taurus. Her last name is 'Earth' in Croatian. Her symbol is one of the alchemical symbols for earth, almost the inverse of Benelo's symbol for air. Her blood color is Byzantium Purple.

Zavija Vindem (midnightStroll) - The lowest ranking of the characters, a fashionista among trolls. Her first name comes from the star Beta Virginis (also known as Zavijava) in the constellation Virgo. Her last name is a misspelling of 'Vinden', Danish for 'wind'. Her symbol is an alchemical symbol for clay. Her blood color is Sangria Red.

Aselli Anchio (cupcakeContessa) - A troll who hides her blood color, lives in a sea-side cave, and loves to bake. Her first name comes from the stars Delta and Gamma Cancri (also know as Asellus Borealis and Australis respectively). Her last name comes from the word 'granchio', which is Italian for 'crab'. It is also a contraction which means "me too" in Italian, but that's purely a coincidence. Her symbol is an alchemical symbol for water. Her blood color is Azure Blue A MYSTERY.

These are cute, and very creative!
Could you tell me how to make troll sprites, I haven't the first idea.

I just used one of the pre-made bases you can find around here on DA. I free-handed the hair and the horns and some of the other details.

Here's the base I used: [link]

Hope that helps.

I am absolutely awful at spriting without help from bases and such.

Yeah, then you save it (or copy and paste it) and open it in the art program of your choice, then mix and match the pieces via copy and paste. Edit colors and whatnot.

I would kill for someone to make a Flash sort of Make-Your-Own game for trolls...

Thanks! I spent a lot of time looking through different Hawaiian shirts to come up with a pattern for his shirt.

I really like these guys! I was curious if it was Alchemy symbols from the get go but now my questions are confirmed!
The girls all seem really confident but the guys are like, shoot what should we do?

I'm glad you like them! =)
Aren't alchemy symbols nifty?

Haha, yeah the guys kind of do look less confident, don't they. Well, Gliese at least is kind of always like that. But Chiron is usually laid-back and calm, while Benelo is mostly just grumpy.

Yup, I figured since your troll hunts and cooks what she catches, a knife would be useful both as a weapon and a tool for dealing with the prey afterward.

Makes sense, makes sense. Also scary. Can be used for throwing long distances or as its usual close combat. I like my weapon :D versatile. I can cook, or I can kill.

I just got an idea for a wonderful picture. Your troll being scary, licking the blade of a nasty looking knife, right next to a picture of her frolicking happily with her Lusus.

Becuase my trolls like me: Sugar and spice and everything nice- till you hit my beserker button and I kill you. I kill you and turn you into cute adorible cuppycakes. Then feed you to things.

With sprinkles.
