Real Name:
Search for 'Picknose' on Amazon

Picknose has gone from king to refugee and back again more often than any troll on Abode, primarily because of his ability to do the unexpected. His name was inspired by his most prominent facial feature, which resembles the "curved business end of a pick." Picknose's interactions with the Wolfriders have been mixed at best. He once trapped the Wolfriders in the Burning Waste and on another occation tried to steal the key in the pommel of Cutter's sword. Later the elves somewhat reluctantly rescued Picknose and his fellow slaves from Guttlekraw's pits. An uneasy alliance forming between the elves and Picknose's trolls, their combined forces won the Elf-Troll War.

Picknose's up-and-down luck wasn't done with him yet, and he subsequently lost his crown in a game of toss-stones. This left him without future prospects and almost without his beloved, Oddbit. But when he was taken (against his will) to the New Land with Old Maggoty, Oddbit, and their daughter Trinket, he started a new kingdom filled with his descendants. During the majority of the time that the Palace was gone, Picknose safeguarded the cocoons of the Wolfriders, opening them only after the Palace returned. Nothing is known of what happened to him after the Djun's War.
