Found living in the inner city of Hornfallow, Thrope is Autolycus's only known living relative, and his younger brother, although due to a mysterious happening, he has now become (physically) much older than Autolycus, being well over 120 years of age. He is a Trunked, and seems to be spry and healthy for his age, which he attributes to having wooden bones. He has a wife named Glenda, and owns a tavern called The Untrunked Tavern, in the poor quarter of Hornfallow.
