Olbishims (or trolls, as they are known in common) are the most common of the Vaettir, the ancient race of elves, goblins, and giants that ruled Yavmir before the arrival of Triglav and Chernobog. Standing eight to ten feet tall, these hulking creatures sport disproportionately large noses, ape-like hands and feet, and manes of knotted hair. After the Vaettir were defeated in the Skywrath Wars, the hulking Olbishims were enslaved by the humans of the Radiant Empire to build their great cities and monuments. Freed from the bonds of servitude after The Sundering, the remaining Olbishims now eke out an existence as hunters and guides. While few humans enjoy the company of a Olbishim, they are forced to respect their great strength and cunning.
