Trohs was a public lawyer and secretly a sadistic gang leader who abandoned his girlfriend “Mamma” to the police. Trohs was a very short man, sometimes called a midget. Trohs visited Junky Doolb in jail and passed him an empty gun, tricking police into shooting Doolb so Jerome could take over his gang. After abandoning Mamma to the police, Trohs swindled an old couple out of a Mountaintop Lodge which he used as a hideout. Mamma escaped from jail and when she arrived at the resort she killed Trohs by badly scalding him with hot water in the shower.
Trohs is Short spelled backwards.
