Trolls are tall, lanky, and muscular. They have both elvish and orcish characteristics with their fierce fangs and long ears. Their long arms, strong legs and quick reflexes are perfectly made for hunting.
Their moss-like skin color ranges from light green to blue and purple. The skin color of Jungle and Forest Trolls is typically green while the skin of the coastal Trolls is usually blue or pale. Trolls can regenerate lost limbs and heal grievous physical injuries at an accelerated rate.
Trolls have a characteristic way of speaking. Words like "yo" (common greeting) and "mon" (man) are common expressions. (They speak with a Jamaican-sounding accent.) The war-like tribes of Trolls are born killers and have a strong lust for blood. Some may still cling to their heritage of cannibalism and voodoo. Most Trolls are highly distrustful of other races.
One tribe of Jungle trolls was forced to overcome its prejudices when it encountered the Orc Warchief Thrall, and his mighty Horde. The Trolls of the Darkspear tribe, long since exiled from their ancestral lands in Stranglethorn Vale, were nearly destroyed by a band of aquatic Murlocs, but Thrall and the Horde managed to save them. In return the grateful Trolls swore an oath of eternal allegiance to the Horde.
Led by the cunning Shadow Hunter, Vol'jin, the Darkspear Trolls now make their home in Durotar along with their Orcish allies. Their village, named after their fallen tribal elder, Sen'jin, lies along the eastern coast of the harsh, rocky land. The Darkspear tribe also occupies tracks within the nearby jungles of the Echo Isles.
As part of the Horde, the Trolls have extended their loyalty to the mighty Tauren, but they have little trust for the manipulative Forsaken, whom they believe will visit only misery and strife upon their allies.
