His name reflects the ice that covers his blade and the cold steel of his heart. He died years ago, but he and his loyal servants have risen from the grave to carry out elven vengeance against all humans. With ghosts and legions of Death Knights at his side, he has no mercy. The season of cold and ice has come.
Like the cold touch of love destroyed, so too is winter found in the embrace of death denied.
Winter sits on his throne of ice, watching in impassive sorrow as snow and cold sweep out across the world. "Father," he whispers, "how did it come to this?"
"Lord Winter is the reason the Archmage never returned. Some say Winter is his son. Others say Winter holds Syneri's soul in a box. But the real truth is that Winter knows the secret to the perfect blade... " -Valanthe (Winter's Ring (Tooth and Claw Era Promo))
"Live or die - either way, you'll talk." -Lord Winter (Winter's Chill)
Lord Winter's pets are as fierce as a winter's storm. They have no taste for mercy. (Bone Hound)
"The Lord Winter sends his regards, your Majesty, and bids you remember the oaths your house has sworn." - Achilleus (Breath of Ice)
