Probably a Keiren that stayed behind, much like Melrin claimed to be.

If you'd clicked on it you would know that she is a half-troll named Mikota.

Don't know what the other half is though.

Fairly certain the other half would be elf. Wow, how an elf managed to mate with the "savage" trolls is beyond me.

No wonder she's lonely in the world -- she's probably the only one of her kind.

This is one of those prints that Poe worked on just because he needed to work on it.

In the ES universe, trolls are distinctly tribal, but Mikota is an exhile. Her story is actually very interesting, and I think it would make a fantastic one-shot graphic novel (meaning only a couple hundred pages at the most) if only Poe could ever be brought to write it down.

Since I live with him, I am fairly blasé about his work most of the time, but this particular piece knocked my breath away when I first saw it. None of the pictures we've put up do it justice, really.

Use your womanly charms to convince him. I'd buy a short novel on it. The pic alone is very convincing that she's got a real history.

I am intrigued by the story being implied. It is conceivable that I would be interested in buying a graphic novel of it. The text on the auction says she's featured in the sequel, which means we'll get to learn more about her eventually.
