Wilhand Trickfoot was Pike Trickfoot's great-great-grandfather and a devout worshipper of Sarenrae.  He lived in Westruun. Pike and Grog Strongjaw lived there with him before their adventuring began.[2]  As an NPC, Wilhand was played by Matthew Mercer.

Personality Edit

Biography Edit

Background Edit

Wilhand chose to break away from his family's history of thievery after receiving a divine dream from Sarenrae.  He taught his descendants the ways of Sarenrae and ultimately was responsible for Pike choosing the lifestyle of a cleric.

A talented carver of wooden tools and furniture, Wilhand was a joyful (if slightly forgetful) old gnome.  Sweet and welcoming in disposition, he was regarded as a treasure in the neighborhood.[1]

One day, Wilhand was nearly killed by a group of goliath barbarians from the Herd of Storms.  One member of the herd, Grog, chose to protect the old gnome.  This decision would have cost Grog his life had Wilhand not gone to Pike to ask for her help in healing the goliath.  This experience resulted in Pike and Grog forming a close friendship and choosing to travel together.

"At Dawn, We Plan!" (1x53) Edit

When the Chroma Conclave attacked Westruun, followed swiftly by the invasion of the Herd of Storms, Wilhand hid in a secret cellar beneath his kitchen floor.  He managed to survive until Pike and the rest of Vox Machina found and rescued him.[4]

"Hope" (1x56) Edit

Later, when Pike addressed the survivors of Westruun in a public square, Wilhand excitedly hopped around, beaming with pride, to see his great-great-granddaughter up on the stage as a savior of the city.[5]

"One Year Later..." (1x95) Edit

"Family Matters" (1x96) Edit

"The Chapter Closes" (1x115) Edit

Years after Vox Machina's defeat of Vecna, Wilhand died of old age and Pike inherited his home in Westruun. Having passed away before Pike proposed to Scanlan, Scanlan left some flowers at his grave.

Relationships Edit


Pike cares about her great-great-grandfather very much, expressing deep concern for his well-being when Grog mentioned that his former herd had taken over Westruun. She was greatly relieved when Wilhand was discovered to have survived the herd's occupation.


Grog once saved and protected Wilhand from his own tribe. This action nearly killed Grog and left him badly hurt but Pike saved him, a thank you gift for saving Wilhand.
