I know you, Vex. You want those kids to stay home so you can protect them. Aja and Krel need to explore the world and find their adventure. Kids grow up and they leave home. That's natural.
―Nancy to Varvatos Vex in "Truth Be Told"

Nancy Domzalski is Toby Domzalski's grandmother and legal guardian.



Nancy is the mother of Ralph Domzalski. However, after he and his wife got lost at sea when a storm appeared during their cruise, Nancy later took in her grandson, Toby, and became his legal guardian. Toby admits that he doesn't remember much about his parents, only the stuff his nana tells him, as she tells him that they're always watching over him. Sometimes when good things happen, Toby likes to think it's because of them.

Part One (Trollhunters)

She is half blind, which is why she couldn't tell that what she thought was a cat was actually a gnome. She first appeared in episode four "Gnome Your Enemy" where a shrunken Jim is housed in her dollhouse by Toby when he could not revert back to his former height owing to a magical mishap with a Troll Machine. Her cat also tried to kill him while she was there, and she almost (unknowingly) injured him while vacuuming. Her dollhouse eventually comes to house Gnome Chompsky after Jim cannot bring himself to kill him.

She reappears in the next episode "Waka Chaka" after the Trollhunters escape the goblin horde by hiding out in Toby's house, after scaring them away with the patio burglar lights, which Toby explains was installed on part of her 'anti-burglar mania'. She overhears the Trolls talking upstairs which Toby tries to explain as his other friends, which she seems disbelieving of. She also welcomed AAARRRGGHH!! into her home in 'Wingmen' under the guise of a Japanese exchange student. Her poor vision prevented her from seeing his true inhuman nature and she treated him with the same love and care as her grandson.

Part One (3 Below)

Physical Appearance

Nancy is an old woman with a large, obese structure. She has gray hair that he holds up in two high buns and wears glasses since she's half-blind. She wears a green buttoned-up dress with flower designs and black slippers.


Nancy is a sweet, yet absent-minded old lady who continually dotes on her grandson Toby, much to his embarrassment, constantly referring to him as 'Toby Pie'. This is referenced in the pixie-induced nightmare he has when she appears instead of the mole mascot he has a crush on. However, Toby still loves his grandma.
