Flame-Touched Troll

These are trolls that lived on Teranik before the Rift-spawned corruption when the Planal Incurison happened. Many of the young born after this event were genetically corrupted in some way. Those born in or near the Plane of Fire shadowed areas. Many of these became flame-touched, also called fire trolls.
