A giant snow leopard wreaked havoc over the hamlet Aurvang killing anyone that approached the mountains. The villagers came to name the beast Frostbite and lived in fear of his fury. The legendary Caelian ranger Joriaul promised to hunt Frostbite and bring an end to his terror. While harvesting the hide, Joriaul noticed Frostbite's spine had a strange blue glow, and was made of solid ice. He carefully removed the spine and made way to the legendary Dwarf blacksmith in the Sundermists to craft a keepsake of his greatest kill.
