I am less and less convinced that his mother was a brown or green elf. It's
much easier for humans to mate and propagate with a dryad.

One of his daughters married Flintnail. I don't recall any offspring.

There are rumours, like the ones connecting Urrgh the Ugly with both a royal
house and trolls.

The easiest way to get a troll-human hybrid might be a Kyger Litor rebirth
ritual (one that doesn't end as a snack). The transformation is only partial
in body, after all.

Both Mostali and Dryads are shapeshifters of sorts, able to assume more or
less human(oid) guises, or to appear in their extreme guise (as a tree/as a
tool). This might enable either to take fully functional human shape...
