This awnshegh only has a very short description but he is described very similarly to Hoarfrost. I am wondering whether they may be the same creature, just different names on either side of the Great Bay.
If not, I have started giving Hoarfrost some blood abilities etc that mainly give him the power to control and manipulate ice. I am thinking that the Ice Fiend might best be more of a basher than a manipulator. Therefore his abilities should be more about strength and fighting.
For example, his ice body is like armour, but should he have the regeneration ability like I gave Hoarfrost? He should be very strong, able to pick up and throw chunks of ice. His primary weapons can be his fists of ice and a charge. But he should get double damage from fire attacks.
Anyone think of anything else?

It is highly likely that they are one and the same. After all, two ice-based awnsheghlien in the same cultural area is vanishingly unlikely.

But that is it, they aren't in the same cultural area. The Ice Fiend is seen in Jankaping, which is a far western Rjurik realm, and the Hoarfrost is seen in the IceMarsh, which is north-eastern Vosgaard. But since we know that the Great Bay ices up in winter, I see it possible that a single awnshegh could be found in both. It would be like seeing it in Greenland and Norway or Norway and Northern Russia.
However, one could be put down as a true awnshegh (Hoarfrost) formed by Bloodform and the other (Ice Fiend) could be rumoured to be a construction by the White Witch (which may have since been blooded).
Or they could both be the same.

I would definatly see the two as separate. An emerging Awnie is likely to take shape from his environment. Both creatures are set in frigid environments. If I was going into details I would definatly try to maximize the differences between the two. One with an tranparent skin, one opaque. One solid, one more gaseous etc.

Hoarfrost I see like a snowy man with hair and beard of ice and snow, with a furry snowy jacket, with snow and ice shaking off him as he moves. He has human intelligence because he once was a human.
The Ice Fiend I see as a more solid creature with sharp edges and smooth surfaces. He looks hard, like a stone statue. The figure may be humanoid but not like a human. I see it more like an ice golem-like figure. Perhaps it needs the humans to survive. The Ice Fiend is more brutal and perhaps has a lower intelligence than Hoarfrost. This allows him perhaps to have originally been a construct of the White Witch and somehow was blooded which changed its nature.
Is that different enough? :^)

I like the idea of the Witch capturing some poor sap - or convincing one of her minions to volunteer - and then infusing him with 'the power of winter', a voluntary awnie transformation is not the norm, but why not?
Of course, a volunteer is possibly more likely to be female given Kriesha's priesthood.
