Who is Jim in Trollhunters: Rise Of The Titans?

In the first series, Trollhunters, viewers are introduced to Arcadia Oaks, a seemingly typical suburban town that’s also home to trolls, aliens and wizards.

We are also introduced to Jim Lake, the Trollhunter – who is seen as the Chosen One.

Trollhunters: Rise Of The Titans finds Jim and his fellow heroes, roughly a year after the ending of Wizards, trying to join forces to prevent Arcane Order leaders – Bellroc and Skrael – from unleashing dark magic that would destroy humanity.

The evil Arcane Order currently holds all control over the magic that binds the Trollhunters together.

According to Animation Magazine, since the Amulet Of Daylight has been destroyed, Jim has doubts about being a good Trollhunter.

In the meantime, Bellroc and Skrael try to lure Nari back to the Arcane Order for their evil plan to succeed.
