Troilus comes from the town of Lydes. When The Breach opened up in the sky, he found the rifts it opened so interesting that he decided to study them. He refers to the rifts as "the Menace", and calls investigating them his "Great Mission". He took interest is in the Rifts at the Pavilion. When he approached one of them, it was inactive. He assumed his studies of the rifts would allow him to close it before it opens. However, he failed and ultimately died at his camp near the rift.
