Introduced in Hiveswap: Act 1[]

On Earth[]


Joey and Tesseract

Joey and Jude's beloved pet dog. She is seen hiding in her dog house during the events of Hiveswap: Act 1. Tesseract is likely a Great Pyrenees based on the floppy ears, and the body build.

The Lone Gunbirds[]

Main article: The Lone Gunbirds
Lone Gunbirds

Jude's carrier pigeons which he uses to send encrypted messages. This is a reference to The X-Files' Lone Gunmen. Their names are Frohike, Langly, and Byers, in reference to the last names of the Lone Gunmen. They also seem to represent the fate of Jude's different family members. Frohike, his favorite, suffered an early death and represents his mother. Langly cowardly runs away and abandons him, like his father. Byers goes to Alternia along with Joey.


Main article: Monster

They are black with neon green mouths. They come in all different forms such as serpent-like creatures, winged monstrosities, limb amalgamates, and giant thumb-like beings.

On Alternia[]

Xultan Matzos[]

Xultan Matzos was a very popular arena stickball player. He was a rust blooded Pusher for the Thrashthrust Snowglobes. According to Xefros, he revolutionized the Pusher position. He had a unique stance when swinging his cuebat, which Xefros tries to model his own stance after. Xultan also had extremely potent psychic powers, which further aided him in the game. He was troll Jewish.[1]

He was executed on the spot after a blueblood mind-controlled him and made him thrust his bone nook at that era's heiress. This seems to be the fate of most lowbloods that make a name for themselves.

Dromed Baktar[]

Dromed Baktar was another popular Pusher. Significantly less is known about him than Xultan, but it is known that he knew to play Pusher very well and was also a capable psychic, though not as much as Xultan. While thinking about playing Pusher, Xefros consistently compares the attitudes of Dromed and Xultan.

Xefros has a poster of Dromed in his respiteblock.[image?]

Xefros's Lusus[]

Xefros' lusus

Xefros's Lusus

A sloth-like lusus who is generally slow and tends to sleep in inconvenient places. Only moves when Xefros feeds him. The scientific name for this lusus is the GLACIAL TREETRUDGER, and his nickname, if not given a custom one by the player, is ZOOSMELL. However, his internal name is slugmeister.

Dammek's Lusus[]

Deercat trans

Dammek's Lusus

A deercat lusus who initially chases Joey around Dammek's hive until she feeds him Lusus Milk and pulls a thorn from his paw. The scientific name for this lusus is the CUSPIDATED GRIMALKIN. Joey nicknames him CORNIBUSTER if the player doesn't choose a different one.

Cuspidated Grimalkin is a chimerical union of predator and prey, with a strength of both: long, retractable claws and razor-sharp teeth alongside of defensive crown of stabbing horns, the speed for lightning-quick dashes and the endurance to run entire nights without tiring.

Proud and resplendent, Cuspidated Grimalkin prefer to bond with bronzeblooded wigglers in whom they sense a strong aptitude for leadership. And the primary cause of death for Cuspidated Grimalkin is in the defense of their treasonous wards. Anecdotal accounts suggest that those Cuspidated Grimalkin who manage to survive the death of their wards will typically seek out a similarly-orphaned troll, and attempt to bond with them, although the selection process is, naturally, rather mysterious due to its staggering illegality.

Introduced in Hiveswap: Act 2[]

Thirty-eight new characters from were first revealed in the Troll Call event prior to Act 2's release, thirty-six of which appeared in Act 2. (See List of Hiveswap characters#Cut characters)

Two new violet blooded trolls are encountered through Chittr, and do not appear in person. A donated fantroll also makes a cameo appearance.

Introduced in Hiveswap: Act 3[]


Many trolls appeared in concept art from a version of Hiveswap developed in 3D, all of which were redesigned during the game's switch to 2D graphics. A beekeeper who was once designed after a member of the development team was replaced with the beekeeper Zebede after that developer left the team; a fishing "gatherer" became Charun; a pirate themed character may have become Mallek or another pirate-like blueblood like Remele; and a rebellious legislacerator was redesigned into another of the game's tealbloods.

Also featured in early 3D concept art for the game were the two canon fan trolls, whose involvement in the game is still as of yet unknown. Presumably, their concept art was created before their debut in Homestuck, since the Kickstarter campaign ran from September to October 2012, while Act 6 Intermission 5 was released in 2013.

Cut characters[]

Two characters who debuted in the Troll Call event were seen in development and promotional screenshots for Act 2, but were ultimately absent from the released product.


  1. Cohen Edenfield. "I wanted XULTAN MATZOS to be troll jewish, so now there is a troll judaism, and obviously he couldn’t be the only one who was troll jewish, so meet Stelsa Sezyat, who is also troll jewish" Cohen is a Ghost. February 7, 2018.
