Frostbite God Slayer Lacrima (December 2018 Item of the Month)
Name: Frostbite God Slayer
Item/Energy needed to reach force: Wind, Ice, Frost, Snow
Slayer Can Control: Wind, Snow, Blizzards, Avalanches
Brief Description: This rare lacrima appears to look like a frosted semi-glowing gem on first appearance, however once you pick it up you will likely regret the instantly, as your fingers will feel frostbitten though no damage will actually be done to the one holding it. Rubbing your finger or something warm over the lacrima will give a few brief seconds were the frost will seem gone and a raging blizzard can be seen underneath.
History: This lacrima was found within a once prominent kingdom within the silent glaciers that has since been forgotten by history and so run into ruin and desolation. The name of this kingdom seems to have been wiped from public record and its location is only known by a select few who refuse to admit they indeed know about it. As to why this place isn't spoken of or why it's location is kept secret no one knows, and people who ask tend to disappear.
If rumours circulating are to be believed the kingdom was blessed by an angel of ice. They protected the original settlers and showed them where to found the city. It was protected in three directions of glaciers covered in thick snow. As an additional protection, the angel created a never ending blizzard to keep those outside from ever being able to enter and harm the people they cared so much for. The people were of course thankful for their guardian protector but as time went by the angel became forgotten. This is nothing more than a myth, but silently they watched from above, their heart slowly freezing over with hurt and malice towards the descendants of the once they cared so much for; still they held out hope that they would return to their roots and so they did nothing.
Centuries went by and things got worse and worse. The angel's heart froze more and more and they became more hate-filled and wrathful at the way the people took their gift and squandered it on decadence, believing they were untouchable by anyone or anything. It was then the angel's heart shattered and they became but a bitter shadow of themselves. It was now they would act and teach them that a gift can also be a curse. They brought the blizzard in and covered the land. Crops and animal died, and people were unable to venture out to gain more from the nearby wilderness. To make things far worse they flapped their wings so hard that the snow covered glaciers gave way to a mighty avalanche that snowed under the once proud city.
