Trollhunters: Tales of Arcadia

Jim Lake Jr.

On the surface, Jim appears to be an average 15-year-old student. He goes to school, stays out of trouble, looks after his mom and puts others above himself. But a piece of him wants more – a life of adventure. When Jim is chosen to be the first human protector of a secret world of Trolls living beneath his hometown, Jim is thrown into the greatest adventure of his life!


Toby is Jim’s best friend and there is no one else he’d rather have by his side. He is loyal, optimistic and can make a good well-timed joke when things get rough.


Blinky is the chief Troll advisor to Jim and his friends. He is very enthusiastic and views himself as a mastermind and trainer, though the rest of the Trollkind think he is crazy for welcoming Jim as the first human Trollhunter. Blinky sees potential in Jim even when almost no one else does, and he will do anything to help him succeed.


AAARRRGGHH!!! may look intimidating at first glance, but he’s actually a gentle giant. Once a feared lieutenant for Gunmar’s army, AAARRRGGHH!!! has joined the good Trolls. He avoids conflict and dislikes war.


Wise beyond her years, and suspicious of Jim’s strange behaviour, Claire finally gets answers when she discovers her baby brother was swapped for a troll! She is then introduced to a world of full of Trolls and magic which Claire finds…awesome! But, she is determined to save her brother, no matter the odds and obstacles…and Jim is willing to do almost anything for her.


Mr. Strickler is Jim’s caring mentor and high school history teacher. He is also a Changeling – a Troll spy who can take human form! Mr.Strickler is charming, manipulative and literally two-faced.


Draal is a large and vicious troll. At first, he didn’t like Jim because he believes that the sacred mantle of Trollhunter should have been passed to him, not a human. But Draal eventually gains respect for Jim after Jim beats him in a fight to the death and gives Draal mercy. Since then, Draal has promised to protect Jim in the human world as an ally and bodyguard.


At first, Gnome seemed like just another annoying gnome stealing socks from Bagdwella’s Fine Gifts. But he was really just trying to find a home! Jim and Toby let him move into Nana’s dollhouse and he becomes a pet and a friend for Toby. Gnome falls in love with his new home and even falls in love…with Toby’s action figure.


Bular is the last of his tribe, hiding in the shadows of the human world. His father, Gunmar (and the rest of the Gumm-Gumm Army) has been imprisoned by the Darklands for centuries, and all Bular wants is his father freed. All he wants is to destroy the Trollhunter and free Gunmar and his army!


NotEnrique is a Changeling who takes Baby Enrique’s place. He has a Troll name, but Toby nicknamed him NotEnrique. He is selfish and plays both sides against each other for his personal gain.
