It was many winters ago, when Halgrym vanished. He had been hiking with some fellow soldiers in the mountains of Azeena for a mission, when he mysteriously disappeared. The friends had gone to sleep that night after swapping campfire stories and had woken up to find him missing. They looked everywhere, but never found him. They eventually mourned the loss of their friend and moved on.
Halgrym had gone to collect firewood so that his friends could wake up to a warm fire when he had gotten lost in the woods. He ended up travelling deeper into the mountains by mistake. Wrought with panic and fatigue, Halgrym slowly began to lose his mind in the harsh winter snow.
A year or so later, several villagers began returning from their regular mountain hunting trips with wild stories about a crazed creature that had been running through the snow, laughing maniacally and screaming so loud that his voice echoed across the terrain. Many would adventure up to the mountains just to see if they could spot him… At a point, even Halgrym's old friends had ventured up the mountain to try and bring him back home, but alas it was futile, for insanity had claimed the poor creature. Not only did he not recognise them, but they couldn't get him to stop running everywhere to talk to him before he vanished again, still screaming with laughter as he went.
Although it has been a while since the last sighting of this creature, it is well known that Halgrym still runs through the trees of the wintery mountains, screaming with laughter and still unable to find his way out of the snowy forest. If you are really lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of him sprinting through the trees before vanishing once again.
