Cameos


Mentioned in Witches Abroad and Troll Bridge, this troll runs a sawmill in Sour Water, and sells coffins at a good price. He employs his brother-in-law, Mica, part-time, and is replanting Cutshade Forest along with his brother Clay so that they can sell it.

Mica, who tells Cohen the Barbarian all about his family, says that his wife has brothers "like a dog has fleas". Chert's siblings are Mica's wife Beryl, an unnamed brother who owns a wooden bridge, and Clay, a merchant.

A Constable Chert is also mentioned in The Fifth Elephant.
