    Huskar and Dazzle share physiological similarities with Troll Warlord though.

      Lifestealer is mentioned as Oglodi, but only once and it may be a line intended for Axe. He appears generally distinct from them. I couldn't say.
      Not sure about Dazzle and Huskar, but Batrider shares enough facial similarities with Troll Warlord to be considered a troll, same with Lifestealer and the other oglodi.

        Well, in the original DotA, they came from different races, but they have something in common: they use technology instead of magical things. Maybe you forgot to include Timbersaw, Gyrocopter, and Techies. But let me still tell you the races that they came from in DotA:
        SNIPER = HUMAN
        GYRO = HUMAN
        TIMBERSAW = NEUTRAL TROLL (RECRUITED)
        TINKER = NEUTRAL TROLL
        TECHIES = NEUTRAL TROLL (RECRUITED)
        ALCHEMIST = NEUTRAL
        CLOCKWERK = JUST THE ROBOT FROM TINKER'S MofM

        However, in DotA 2, since their lores changed, it could be implied that they are like families of technologies.

          Both Gyrocopter and Sniper are Dwarves in wc3, while Shredder, Tinker, Techeezy, Little Al are Goblins. In dota 2, both races turned into Keens with the exclusion of Mountain King.

            there is yes, things to say huskar, dazzle and batrider are trolls, the trolls from warcraft change his aspects, but in general they still have the physic of a troll, dazzle and huskar are cousins, so, they are from the same race, they dont are humans, they have point ears, just like the other trolls, dota have humans with point ears too, indeed, but they are much different from the trolls, they are "old humans" like invoker and lone druid

            Troll Warlord say in one of his responses, that huskar remember him of himself, cuz this he hate him most of all heroes, this hate is something from his own race

            dazzle also have a tribe, something not exclusive from trolls, but in general, trolls, orcs goblins or ogres, lives in this way, take this and his appearance and you dont have a human, and with other things i say above you can easily say they are some kind of troll

            Shadow shaman are closely identical to batrider, batrider is yellow, and again, point ears, lives on the jungle, they both are from the same kind of troll

            then huskar and dazzle: one kind of troll
            Troll Warlord: another kind of troll
            Dazzle and shadow shaman: trolls from the hills

            now, with the witch doctor is pretty difficult say, but i will say he is a troll too, he have point ears, lives on tribe have a ritualistic and voodo way, also have pointed teeth, something regular from trolls, we cant say he is a human with points ears, cuz he dont have immortality to be a old human like lone druid and invoker, humans like that are extinct, and also have different skins colors

            so witch doctor is a troll too, i cant say he is the same specie from the others or another, the trolls in dota, like in warcraft have too many subspecies, all trolls from dota 1/warcraft still trolls on dota 2

            Lifestealer is an oglodi by tusk responses, and his pshyic, he are too far disfigured by the years in jail, but his face show some oglodi characteristics( and this is pretty curious lifestealer dont was an orc on dota 1 dont need to be a oglodi in dota 2, different from chen, who was an orc and become human)

                      no, there is humans, and ancient humans, like humans in the beginning of the ages, and they have point ears, like invoker and lone druid, and dot a have too humanoids

                      • Drow Ranger should be reconsidered a bit.

                        https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trow_(folklore)
                        Look at the bit about Selkie / norwegian history. Trow/Drow may have origins from there, with descriptions of darker people that traditionally used bows. Trow/Drow are also described as a sort of sprite as well in the mythological/folklore path. But if you go along with the realistic/historical accounts, drow would be considered far more tribal and barbaric than a bunch of pissy forest fairies.


                        Basically, Drow is likely not an elf. Closer to a "traditional native american" in description with bits of folklore magic surrounding them. All because they scared the crap out of vikings. Dota 2 Drow Ranger is exactly the result of myth and legend surrounding the nordic raids in the Northern Isles.
