A race of troll-like fey hailing from cold regions of the primes, Huldre possess all the capricious temperament of sirens. They are known to best for their penchant of seducing and kidnapping humanoid men as lovers, servants and occasionally food. They are vicious when angered and much more easily provoked to physical retaliation than many their fairer cousins.
Females of this race appear from the front to be beautiful women with cow-like tails. Every Huldre has a hole in her back and looks a rotten tree within. It is a faux pas to draw attention to their tail. Most tend to prefer long clothing to conceal it when around mortals. Similarly, peering into the hole in a Huldra's back will often draw her ire.
The males of their kind, known exclusively as Huldrekall, are often hidious hulking creatures with grotesquely long or bulbous noses. There also are tales that exist of a more effeminate variety of Huldrekall appearing in the form of nubile young men.
The personality of young Huldra often reflect the duality of their appearance. Her hollow fickle temperment wrapped in superficial charm. This tends to change with age, Huldra elders are often calm with a tendency to be genuinely caring.
