Legend of the Ice People
Once upon a time, many centuries ago, Thengil the Evil went out in the wilderness to sell his soul to the Devil. He became the forefather of the Ice People. For wealth and power, one of his descendants in every generation, would be cursed to serve the devil and perform evil deeds. Their distinguishing feature would be yellow cat’s eyes and they would possess magical powers. Some say they will never be free of the curse until they unearth the cauldron containing the potion Thengil the Evil used to summon the Devil. It is said that one day a child of his blood will be born, gifted with knowledge and wisdom of which the world has never known before, who will end the family curse.
So says the legend but no one knows if it’s true.
