The cold legion is an army of dwarf-like creatures that rose from Élivágar – the primordial rivers of ice. They worship Ymir, the first giant, and seek to extinguish all life from cold lands such as polar regions. As such they are only found in such climates. Soldiers in the cold legion are immortal, and those slain rise again by drawing on elemental energy from the icy lands. When the army moves, it unrelentingly destroys all settlements in its path through attrition. The advance of the horde has been halted in the past only through defeating its ranks in a single day, in fearsome battles at great cost of life, and then imprisoning the horde before midnight.

A cold legion minion is a small, lithe humanoid with pale blue skin and piercing blue eyes. They fight with two blades of ice, acting as skirmishers and harassers. When encountered in groups, one in every four minions will focus on throwing darts, allowing the others to shield it.
