Hey, look! Trolls!
All of my trolls. Named at random...
Heh, the current lack of a meaningful name is the #2 reason I'm not posting an intro.
Phidal Unismo - Corruption of Fidel and the last 6 letters of comunismo. Hurr, I'm so witty
I am often on Pesterchum with one of my trolls. Don't be afraid to troll them. (Tags are in spoiler.)
I chose Laasya Apria because it's Latin for "Dance of the Apricot"
I've left the forum community, I'm afraid.
it's been real.
Hey guys making the description for my new troll. In the meantime have this.
Spoilered for big.
Xutial Ramusk - majesticExecutioner

Symbol: ʓ, Unicode U+0293, Latin small letter ezh with curl

Quirk: S turns to Zh in all instances. Lowercase p turns to lowercas q. Says 'chinG' at the end of each line.
Strife Specibus: axeKind

Levia Zwota: Leviathan; Złota Baba is the Polish goddess of oracles, relating to Levia's (hardly mentioned) interest in dreams and visions despite not having any powers

Seknal Dezurc: Seknal comes from Sechnall, a name that I just really like; Dezurc comes from de cruz, i.e., "of the cross", with cross spelled backwards --> opposite of the cross --> hell --> hellfire.
Zekhar Tieral: ... yeah this was basically just me making up shit.
Kilras Jebkon: Mt. Killaraus, the legendary mountain from which Merlin took the stones to make Stonehenge; Jebkon is an anagram of Kenobi with the I changed to a J because Latin does that sometimes, and Obi Wan was a hermit at the beginning of the movies. I think.
So yeah. Some of this involved a lot of research. It was fun.
Morsus Schorf: Latin for "bite" for his freaky bite strength; German for "scab" because it's kind of gross and it fits his speech impediment

My names have no meaning.
I feel like an idiot.
This is getting a rewrite soon. Pay not attention to it.
Guys what have I wrought. Also pieces and colors I hate lasso.
Odd eyes it is then =P
Your name is AENICT FORMID, and you are probably about 8 sweeps old, although you haven't really kept track. You have GREEN BLOOD, you think, although as you DON'T ACTUALLY SEE IN COLOR you're not exactly sure. You do however see SCENT TRAILS, an odd ability picked up from your GIANT ANT QUEEN lusus, who is the hivemind for a colony of GIANT ANTS. You have been a part of this hivemind since the day you were chosen, which has done some very strange things to your personality. You frequently forget to blink, and often forget that other trolls communicate by neither pheromones or psychic link and may require vocalisation of your thoughts. You are only just learning how to be an individual, and refer to yourself as "I/we". You have lived most of your life UNDERGROUND in your lusus's anthill, in the DARK apart from the flickering glow of biolumiinescent moss and your computer screen, and as such your eyes are pretty much PERMENANTLY DILATED, and extremely weak to light of any kind. You are even weaker to the Alternian sun than most, and even a second of indirect sunlight is incredibly painful to you.
You do have something of an interest in FASHION, partly because you hope to distract people from your WEIRD EYES AND HORNS with your sharp dress sense and partly to express your burgeoning individuality. Your other interests include ARCHITECTURE and STRUCTURAL ENGINEERING, which are not exactly useful job skills on a planet where everyone is born with the ability to design a hive. You enjoy movies of the SPECULATION ON A POSSIBLE FUTURE variety, and most of your favourites are VERY LOW BUDGET and QUITE OLD and about GIANT INSECTS SETTLING IN THE RUINS of troll civilisation. One day you hope to be a DEMOLISHAPPER, the empire's crack squad of sapping experts for when you absolutely have to get inside a fortification.
You are a little unsure in company, as you are used to communicating non-verbally, and you are very, very aware of your position in the heirarchy of any given colony. You tend to be rather abrupt in everyday conversation, although you do not intend to be. You are diligent and dutiful when given a task, and not very agressive. You do tend to be a little fatalistic.
Your troll tag is formidableColonist, and you ...shpeak wif an odd tone due to your giant caninesh... short shentanshes... and lots of ellipshesh... bof becaushe fey look like antsh and to indicate your paushesh ash you try to find fe wordsh...
Blood color: Green, but you type in Grey
Lusus: the Queen Ant of a colony of them. She's about 20 ft long, for reference.
Strife Specibi: diggingkind, junkkind: one because you are well used to wielding digging implements and the other due to those movies, in which the survivors always have to use junk as an improvised weapon.
Fetch Modus: Pheremone modus. Your cards don't have pictures, they have pheremone mixtures; you can have any card you like as long as you remember which one it is.
Typing quirk: Ellipses, replacing s with sh and th with f, short sentences, referring to yourself as I/we
Symbol: The eye of the Allseeing
Title: Seer of Hope
Land: Land of Darkness and Ruins
OTHER IMAGES - emotions
Derse dreamsprite, lusussprite, respite block

->Place insanely rambly sig under spoiler tag for the sanity of all involved
Paint.net like the other guy and girl are using. Because I am two poor for photoshop. So first layer bases then start a second layer for the bodies and such?
I really have no ideas what to name my trolls.
Anyone have any suggestions?
(it would probably be best to use PMs, don't want to clutter the thread with name suggestions for four characters)
v Click the spoiler! v
Asudem Rudaba - Asudem is a given. Rudaba is the Iranian(?) fairy tale that supposedly inspired Rapunzel.
The rest are mostly stitches together of German words I snagged off of google translator, or things I'm really too ashamed to even bring up.
