Ronald Weasley: "Told them I was Stan Shunpike. First person I could think of."
Harry Potter: "And they believed that?"
Ronald Weasley: "They weren't the brightest. One of them was definitely part troll, the smell of him…"
Ronald Weasley tells Harry Potter and Hermione Granger about his encounter with Snatchers in 1997.[src]

Part-trolls are, apparently, beings with some, but not a total, amount of troll heritage or blood, as well as part human blood.[1][2]

Part-trolls are, apparently, agressive individuals[1] with a troll's characteristic foul smell.[2]

Behind the scenes

  • It is unknown whether the term 'part-troll' describes an actual human/troll cross-breed or if it is just a derogatory phrase used to insult large, agressive, and foul-smelling wizards and witches. Given the context in which it appears in the novels (described as a "small instance of humour"), the latter is most likely.
