Bogroll was a twoll in the service of Stanley the Tool. He was originally a henchmanErf-b1-p004Same-site.PNG ("the lowest henchman", according to himErf-b1-p085Same-site.PNG) and a garrison troop in the castle of Gobwin Knob.

In his first appearance, he was about to become the (literal) target of a prank by one of the other henchmen that would probably have killed most units, but he probably could have survived thanks to his regeneration trait. Wanda's desire to get "as far away from (him) as possible" when she encounters him holding a target-patterned parasol suggests that this is a recurring pattern. Wanda promoted him to lackey in attendance for Lord Hamster, much to Stanley's amusement,Erf-b1-p028Same-site.PNG but this Fateful decision would serve not only to ensure the victory of Gobwin Knob, but possibly save Parson's life.

During the following Turns, Bogroll attempted to assist Parson, by finding him boots (they might be greaves), answering Parson's many questions (which often confused him), constructing a curraiss (with built in pauldrons, and Parson's Hamstard 'heraldry' painted on the front). He also connects the pieces of Parson's Sword together.

Later in the siege of Gobwin Knob, Bogroll is promoted to a bodyguard position and is in charge of protecting the Tower of Efdup that Parson used as headquarters until the Outer Walls were breached.

Just before the end of the siege, disguised as Parson, Bogroll ambushed and croaked Prince Ansom under the guise of surrender before being croaked himself.Erf-b1-p131Same-site.PNG and Erf-b1-p132Same-site.PNG Bogroll levelled up twice for this encounter, but croaked soon after, probably burned at the hands of the mob of RCC troops in the Courtyard. Sadly, there were insufficient remains for Wanda to decrypt him the following dayErf-b1-p146Same-site.PNG, and so Bogroll hopefully passes into the City of Heroes.

Traits

Bogroll seems to have a very high loyalty, especially to Parson.

Bogroll has only one eye in the manner of a cyclops, a trait not shared by all twolls.Erf-b1-p10Same-site.PNG

Bogroll is illiterate.Erf-b1-p033Same-site.PNG

Speculation

Bogroll survived a fall that killed a warlord of a much higher level than he was (such that Bogroll leveled twice). This might mean he had a relatively enormous number of hits, or that his Regeneration ability allowed him to survive being reduced to 0 hits, or simply that the warlord was injured from earlier events in the siege. Bogroll may also have landed on Ansom.

Real World References

Bogroll is one-eyed - a reference to cyclops.

Bogroll is the name of a character in a PartiallyClips strip by Rob Balder.
