Half-Trolls or Troll-Men (S."Pertereg" Or."Gîzûmolog") were fearsome beings usually believed to be half-bloods of Trolls and mortal men. Most Half-Trolls were of Olog and either Variag or Haradrim descend, but some extraordinary individuals were believed to be partly orc, partly troll or partly Giant and partly troll and even part troll part elf.
