"Mad" Eadgar lives in a cave at the top of Trollheim. He plays a very small part in the Troll Stronghold quest, because players must free him from his cage. Eadgar is very important, however, during the Eadgar's Ruse quest, he plays a central role, acting as an advisor to the player, helping them craft a ruse with a parrot to fool the trolls into believing it to be a human.
- He is a possible reference to the Shakespearian play King Lear, which contains a character named Edgar who adopts the disguise of a mad beggar.
- He does not seem to worry about the trolls because he claims that he is too old for the trolls to eat him.
