ABOUT

Ice manes are a cross between a primate and an albino reptile with piercing blue eyes. Their huge heads are surrounded with icy spikes, and their mouths are filled with rows of frozen fangs that shred opponents like crushed glass. They are most frequently found where icy waters pour into the frozen, lowest rings of Hell. Ice manes hunt in wild packs where they are raised from frozen souls trapped in the icy tributary of Styx. Voracious hunters, ice manes are too stupid to retreat, and too numb to feel pain. They sometimes find their way into the Mortal Realms when summoned by spellcasters or though unattended planar gates near areas of ice floes and frigid waters.
