Trogs

Trøg appearing in Bentwood castle

Trøgs are a subterranean sub-species of Elf living underneath Dreamland Castle, in a place called Trøgtown.

Appearance[]

The main distinction of Trøgs from their Elven cousin are their black eyes, grey skin, and large nostrils and earholes.

Trøgs thrive in dark environment and do not like bright light, hence their black eyes.

In "Goodbye Bean", it is revealed that the Trøgs cut their brains out of their heads because it grants them immortality. it is also the reason Dagmar cannot invade their dreams. Somehow, the removal of their brains did not impact their mental abilities, but this is not explained further.

They can shed their skins. In "Spy Vs. Spy Vs. Spy", Elfo used such a shed skin to disguise himself as a Trøg.

Culture and behaviour[]

They have a tendency of grave robbing and store their pilfered valuables in a special storage room underground they call the Treasury Cave, along with other items they find during their rare visits to the surface (the stuffed body of former royal court member Voop being incidentally being one of these "treasures"). When they were first introduced, they were in league with Queen Dagmar whom they concluded was their "Savior" and thus followed her in cult-like fashion. They have hollowed-out passages all over Dreamland and presumably the rest as the world as well as inside the Dreamland castle where there are several tunnels that allow them to circulate freely and discreetly. As most of the tunnels are only small enough for Trøgs and similarly-sized creatures, their existence has gone largely unnoticed by the citizens of Dreamland.

According to Trixy, one of their goals is to entirely excavate The World just below the surface in order to make it completely hollow, something that they've apparently been doing for generations.

The Trøgs also have an underground Fungus Forest, which allows them to make use of giant, glowing, psychedelic mushrooms they've dubbed Trøgs Logs as building materials for their underground structures, as well as for making cocktail umbrellas. While they are highly versatile as building materials, their spores induce a strong psychedelic effect than can apparently lead to memory loss over time. The Trøg's tunneling capabilities allow them to easily pilfer recently created graves during their daily tunneling duties, as demonstrated when they inadvertently rescue Zøg who was buried alive.

They also store an pinkish substance they call the Sacred Goo, which Bean observes Yugo and two other Trøgs placing in storage. The Goo is made out of Trøg brains and is imbued with magic which Trøgs get from a special ceremony where they suck on certain stalatite which saves water of the Dreamland river while they sit on a stalagmite which saves steams from hell.

A lot of Trøgs, if not even all, traveled with Alva Gunderson and the Arch-Druidess to the moon at the end of the show after betraying Alva and abducting him on the orders of the Arch-Druidess.

Religion[]

Trog saviour symbol

The symbol of the savior

The Trøg's follow a religion/philosophy called Trøgentology, which involves worshiping the moon, which they believe will grant them special powers when it is at it's highest. During full moons, they come to the surface to perform a ritual to worship the moon. This involves them lowering their pants, raising their bare asses up in the air, and slapping each others butts. Elfo was dragged into this ritual in "Bad Moon Rising".

One of their holiest sights is the Pool of Reflection inside the Crystal Cavern, where the Trøgs would go to ease their negative thoughts.

The Trøgs believe in a savior who will come for them someday. This savior is depicted through a symbol on the wall of their caves. At first Dagmar convinced the Trøgs she was their savior to get them to do her bidding. At the end of "You're the Bean", the Trøgs end up regarding Bean, Elfo, and Luci as their saviors. Although for reasons not fully explained, Bean, Elfo, and Luci being near a collection of large crystals causes the crystals to resonate in a way that highlights the Savior's symbol drawn above them. This apparently leads the Trøgs to believe that the trio are the saviors, much to the trio's confusion. Subsequently, the Trøgs then viewed Dagmar as an imposter posing as a savior and restrain her on Bean's command.

In "The Goo-Bye Girl", the Trøg try to force Elfo to drink the goo to see if he is perhaps the Savior, and it's revealed they gave Luci's decapitated body the Goo in "Love is Hell" for that same reason.

However, in "Goodbye Bean", when Alva Gunderson's rocket blasts off, it uncovers the full symbol and reveals the true savior is Miri.


Known Trøgs[]

Trivia[]

  • King Xøg’s father (and King Zøg’s grandfather) was also named Trøg, although he presumably wasn’t a Trøg. What connection he had to them, if any, is unknown.
  • They hate it if people mistake them for Molemen.
