Frost Knight[edit]

A woman walks out of a bandit camp, the ice of the north bloodied with those who wronged her. They call her the Ice Wraith and she will destroy those who made her the monster she is.

Creating a Frost Knight[edit]

“The cold comforts those who have lost it all.”

Where did you learn your powers? Were they given to you? Are they a curse? An accident? Maybe nature blessed you with them? Frost Knights are usually lawful alignment, having steadfast beliefs in the law of the one who granted them their power. Maybe for vengence, or to protect the ones you love.

You may have one bonded weapon at a time, and can bond with a different weapon over a short rest.
