A Troll from the beliefs of the Norse. He wanted to capture and torture Esbern Snare. The only way Esbern Snare could overcome the Trolll is to know his name. He did not know the name of the Troll so to postpone his death he ordered the Troll to build him a church. He claimed that if this was done he would freely give his eyes to the Troll without a fight. By the time Fine had finished building the Church, Esbern Snares’ wife, Helva had discovered the Troll’s name. Esbern Snare stated that he now knew the name of the Troll and thus his life was saved.
