I get the sense she's some kind of distraction or siren, tempting the knight with treasure.

I think that she is more like representation of the scandinavian resistance to the christianization processes. Pagan believes stated that a troll who came to be loved by human being could become human itself. She was just sincerely trying to lift the curse from herself, but stubbornes, narrow-vision, prejudgement and dogmatism of the knight stripped her from such possibility. So, it is very sad song.

P.S.
This illustration is very good. It delievers the right combination of emotions.

'Gifts like these, I'd gladly accept
As dowry for a fine, christian woman
But you are a fiendish mountain troll,
And the voice of the nix and the Devil.'
