Stalklings, also known as Vulture Trolls, are a race of sunlight-immune dragon-like Trolls.

Physical Description

Stalklings are giant vulture trolls with bat-like wings and razor sharp talons.


Stalklings are dangerous, unpredictable and uncontrollable. Once they choose a prey, they do not stop hunting until they have killed them. They prefer to attack their prey whenever they are alone. However, not all Stalklings are uncontrollable and irrational wild beasts, because, also in part two, a Stalkling is seen being a normal citizen of Trollmarket.A Stalkling is sent after Jim Lake Jr. by Bular to kill him. He evades its maneuvers for a while, but is soon caught. He uses his Sword of Daylight to attract a lightning bolt, electrocuting it and turning it to stone.

A Stalkling has been seen in Part Two, being one of the minion beasts of Gunmar. During Jim's dream sequence with Merlin, a Stalkling is seen carrying Steve away during the invasion of Gunmar.

In Part Three, it was revealed that Stricklander was once a Stalkling before he became a Changeling.

Powers & Abilities

Besides Changelings, Stalklings are the only race of trolls immune to the effects of sunlight and can even fly at great altitude.


Despite their immunity to sunlight, they can still turn to stone when directly struck by a lightning bolt.
