100 Heads in 100 Days #34 - The Final Troll?

Well, my little sojourn with the Trolls draws to a close today. It's been quite a lot of fun and I would like to do something similar to this toward the end of the challenge, perhaps once the Galway Pub Scrawl 31 Day Drawing Challenge (which begins in earnest tomorrow) has finished. I have a good idea of what I want to do if the opportunity presents itself, so we'll see what happens. I don't want to think too far ahead with this challenge, I'm really just enjoying the process and leaving it open to spontaneity.
So here it is... the final Troll-

100 Heads in 100 Days #34
A Neandertroll
Nobody, not even the great Willow himself, knows the exact origin of Trolls. They appear to have existed for as long as anything else has, but it is believed they were one of the few first races to ever call Faerie home. While many of the species and sub-species of Trolls can be linked back to common Troll ancestors, there is one species that seems to have remained true to its original forebears, changing little over the eons... these are the enigmatic Neandertrolls.
There is a school of thought that Neandertrolls are the mothers and fathers of all Trolls, the biological taxonomy adds weight to this belief. They look as though they were built long ago, with their prominent brow, diminutive crown and shortened limbs.
Neandertrolls are surrounded with mystery. Nobody knows where they live, how they spend their lives, how many there are or even if they can communicate. What is known is that Neandertrolls are big, bigger than other Trolls, and they seem to love eating Flower Faeries. Many Flower Faerie plagues have been averted thanks to Neandertrolls.

Me Fact #34 
If I put the radio on, I will always tune it to a classical station. Modern music is full of harlots and posers with very little actual musical aptitude. Give me Brahms, Ravel, Vivaldi or Grieg over that muck any day.
