The Thropp Sisters

Well, the family always was bright, and brightness, as you know, decays brilliantly. Madness is the most shining way.

—Nanny regarding the Thropp family, Wicked: The Life and Times of the Wicked Witch of the West

The Thropp Family is a prominent family hailing from Munchkinland, and the most powerful of the quadrants dozen Eminences. From their seat at Colwen Grounds in Nest Hardings, the Eminent Thropp is the sole ruler of Munckinland. Her Eminence, Nessarose Thropp led the Munchkinlanders' succession from loyal Oz. Thropps are titled by their order in the line of succession to the Eminence, which is matrilineal. Thus, Elphaba Thropp at birth was "Elphaba of Rush Margins, Thropp Third Descending".

Despite most Munchkinlanders being short and stout, the Thropps, through selective breeding, were tall and slender, resembling the Gillikinese.
