Trollhunters Theory:

Jim has Troll blood.

Just hear me out…..Ok, so we know the amulet has never picked a trollhunter of human blood. And why, out of all humans, is Jim selected?

One. He has a father we don’t know barely anything about. He just left one day, mysteriously. If Jim’s father was a changling, that would make sense. Maybe he was forced to leave. Maybe he didn’t want to follow through with the plans to complete the bridge and basically destroy mankind (since he now had a family and a son).

Two. In one early scene, Toby accuses Mr. Strickler of being a changling. Jim just laughs and says,

“If he’s one, I’m one.”

Coincidence? Maybe…but, does this mean Jim has troll in his bloodline? Is his father possibly a changling?

LII

The spotted hawk swoops by and accuses me, he complains of my gab and my loitering.

I too am not a bit tamed, I too am untranslatable,
I sound my barbaric yawp over the roofs of the world.

The last scud of day holds back for me,
It flings my likeness after the rest and true as any on the shadow’d wilds,
It coaxes me to the vapor and the dusk.

I depart as air, I shake my white locks at the runaway sun,
I effuse my flesh in eddies, and drift it in lacy jags.

I bequeath myself to the dirt to grow from the grass I love,
If you want me again look for me under your boot-soles.

You will hardly know who I am or what I mean,
But I shall be good health to you nevertheless,
And filter and fibre your blood.

Failing to fetch me at first keep encouraged,
Missing me one place search another,
I stop somewhere waiting for you.

Walt Whitman (b. 31 May 1819), “Song of Myself,” in WHITMAN (The Laurel Poetry Series)
