Characters[edit]

Snapper[edit]

Voiced by Kathleen Barr.Snapper is a rather scrawny troll child from a forest filled of magic creatures. He is generally pretty disliked by just about everyone in the forest due to the constant pranks he plays on anyone he comes across. He is very cunning (although he might seem dumb, as he cannot even count to two!). He is also a master at every kind of music instrument he learns the basics off( He learned to play violin like a pro just like "Snap!"), but favours the flute. While he generally doesn't care about the consequences of his actions, he often resolves bad situations he played a part in instigating. He has a little troll named Willy Wee living in his hat. He has a really big ego.

Tumbler[edit]

Voiced by Cathy Weseluck Tumbler is a fat little troll child. He is rather dull and mostly just tags along with Snapper, agrees with him, when he compliments himself, and takes part in his pranks.He is rather shy.

Willy Wee[edit]

Willy Wee is a nano-troll (a tiny troll). He doesn't like any of the creatures in the forest that much, except Snapper, Sun-Eye, Tim, and Huldra.

Supporting characters[edit]

Huldra[edit]

Huldra is a (self-appointed, the other vittlings doesn't thinks she's ready yet, "The Hunt doesn't call her") huntress of the Vittling Folk (They seem to be some kind of troll-elfish creatures...). Huldra is the laughing stock of her tribe, being kinda clumsy (while still being just as agile as any other vittling), and short-thinking sometimes, as well as being one of Snappers main targets for pranks. She yearns to prove that she can be just as good a hunter as the adult Vittlings (though she is a kid). She seems to have some kind of liking for Snapper, as she enjoyed kissing him just to see his reaction, as well getting pretty jealous when a mermaid flirted with him.
