Eckharte Troll was born in 1432 somewhere very far north that no one can pronounce the name of. When he was just a baby of 80 years old both his parents were killed by pirates, though they insisted they weren’t pirates. Eckharte then went wandering and travelled all across Europe until finally getting restless for distant shores in 1847. He somehow managed to stow away on a boat to Australia, but still nowhere felt quite right and he travelled through many worlds looking for a home. Eventually he heard that an old friend was in trouble and so came to Woodfordia to help.
