You... captivate me. But I know my appearance terrifies you...
Trealiy was present during the war against the Bringer of Night. He tried to defend his home, but his nerves failed him, and he ended up trying to disguise himself and imitate the icy skeletons so as not to be attacked by them. When the battle was over, however, he found that his fur had permanently turned to ice, so that he would always be reminded of his deception and cowardice. He now lives high on the mountain, where he lives a lonely life filled with regret. He pines for Feinly, but his icy appearance is terrifying to her so he can only watch from afar.
Read his full story with Feinly: part one and part two!
Poem by me
Amidst the clattering shower of hail
The purest, palest shade of blue.
His eyes, his claws, his nose, his tail;
The slightest rays of light shine through
Crystalline hide instead of fur.
Refracting, glimmering as a prism
Visible through the blizzard's blur
No imperfection, crack, or schism.
A winter creature, elusive, rare
A living sculpture carved in ice.
His breath, a puff of frozen air
Never in the same place twice.
The glacial winds are frigid, bitter;
No other creatures dare emerge.
But there! a fleeting gleam, a glitter –
Then, nothing. Just winter's lonely dirge.
The squall subsides, the clouds dispel
No signs remain of the icy illusion.
Was it some frozen dream or spell?
Could it be real, or just delusion?
