Quoth the Kender-Trow:

“I must’ve found it somewhere. Looks just like yours doesn’t it? I guess it must have fallen in my pocket…”

Kith Excerpt:

The Kender-Trow are a relatively modern conceit amongst the Alva (Fae), and none can say for sure where or when they came. They are a fickle Disir (Kith), in turn the bravest and staunchest of allies, and then annoying and backwards cheats and thieves. They exist in the liminal spaces of the Norse dreaming: obscured from the over-bearing and thunderous past that their Troll cousins merit

Getting a straight answer from any Kender-Trow is a lesson in futility. Any one of the little bastards will give you three different answers concerning their origins. Many claim descent from the first Trolls. This is taken with a grain of salt by the scholars, who all ascertain that Trolls could never be that annoying. Some claim that they are a variant of the Celtic-Kithain known as Piskies. Others insist that they are a blood-line which claims descent from one of Loki’s trysts with an unknown Jotun. The Kender-Trow just smile and agree with any and all of these allegations

Their trade however, is unfortunately thievery and pick-pocketing. This concept is all but unthinkable to most of the Alva, but is over-looked for a couple of reasons. The first reason is that what is pilfered is usually worthless. The second is that the Kender-Trow prove themselves to be the bravest of warriors time and time again, continually shattering perceptions of their own worth.
