The Ice LadyThe Ice Lady

Down worms! Your mistress commands thee!
Tell me my love, can you hear the crystal song of the ice? Do your veins cry out with its clarity? You are so much more than mortal now and worthy to exult in my touch at last.
My wrath should you fail is all you need consider Tanbert.
Let Heinrich know of this fool's actions, he will avenge this insult without any need for us to expend our resources.
Fool! You were almost discovered! You risked everything in your stupidity! What need have I of such mindless minions when the living serve me so well?


The Ice Lady is the High Priestess of White Hand of Kriestal.

Cruel, cunning and manipulative the Ice Lady took control of the Independent Churches of Sera by murdering the prelates of the temples and re-animating them as her servants thus becoming regent of a reasonable domain. The Ice Lady rules by fear but is cautious and never acts without carefully considering her options, unless some surprise catches her off guard in which case she reacts with extreme brutality when discretion would likely be more successful.

The Ice Lady plans to extend her influence by killing more prelates of Sera and re-animating them as her servants, her current target is the temple in Kantswach as she is wary of striking to close to Blackruft. She is a little concerned about Great Aunt Katrina but is sure she can destroy the interfering old fool if the legendary Danig interferes in her plans.

Other current plans include breeding monsters from Kurt Donnerssohn - she captured the scion several months ago and twisted his form on her altar warping him into man-wolf hybrid, and she has since mated him with several wolf bitches and also some unfortunate women who crossed her and were deemed too annoying to be killed without first being thoroughly humiliated and brutalized. The Ice Lady is curious to see what will be born of these women, as the pups born from the wolves have already shown significant promise.

The Ice Lady would also dearly like to suborn some of the local sheriffs and guilders who are becoming distressingly nosy, particularly around her animated priests - without the presence of one of the Ice Lady's few priestesses of Kriestal the animated priests find it harder to conceal their nature and the Ice Lady is concerned that one will be uncovered and attract the attention of the Count himself - and she is not yet ready to face one of the legendary wizard-rulers of Danigau.

The Ice Lady has however had some success in swaying Baron Heinrich Stark to her way of thinking - one of her younger priestesses Gretchen Weisschal has Heinrich wrapped around her little finger with her wiles and wanton nature and the baron has aided the Ice Lady's plans in many ways with Gretchen's encouragement, often by arresting the Lady's foes on some pretext.

The Ice Lady recently arranged for Hans Neblinger to be ruined; by putting the dim Mellisande in charge of Evershruden the Ice Lady was sure that she could readily infiltrate and in time dominate the province.

Her plans have however been thrown into disarray by Hans' refusal to accept that he is beaten and leave for exile. The cunning guilder found a loophole in the law to avoid being 'properly' punished for his 'crimes' and now runs a rapidly growing security force in the mountains. The Ice Lady has seen agent after agent slain in the mountains, for Hans now has little to do beyond foil the 'bandits' that were infesting the province and many of the Ice Lady's best warriors have died at the hands of Hans and his men.
