Trell is a construction foreman in Lossand who works under Kelzi Karmat.[1]

He is connected to Scadrian religions.[2]

Appearance and Personality[edit]

Trell has a bald head and wears the dull, loose-fitting clothes and leather boots of a laborer in Lossand. Trell is a selfless man who cares deeply for his subordinates, and he treats Kenton with a great deal of respect.[1]


Kenton once saved some of Trell's crew by holding up the roof of a structure after the scaffolding collapsed, allowing them time to escape. Fearing retribution upon his crew for displeasing a sand master, Trell initially acted highly subservient toward Kenton and took the blame for the collapse upon himself. Kenton's act earned Trell's trust and respect. At Kenton's command, he delightedly dismissed his crew for the day after the disaster, so that they might spend time with their families.[1]


  • The naming of Trell was intentional, but the connections are a little obtuse.[3]
