Bio: Graduate of Texas A & M University. He met Carl Vinter at Mardi Gras with the Hollands and Chester Williams. He helped Carl through the death of his previous boyfriend, who was part of Les Perdu. Eventually, he moves in with Carl, who by this time is Chester's roommate. The situation ends badly when a cross is burned on Chester's lawn, causing Carl and Troy to vacate from Houma.
Notes: While Carl Vinter was a small, effeminate man, Troy is a tall, athletic, muscular black man, an anti-stereotype of a gay man.
