Seals were arctic animals common to the Great Glacier[2] and Icewind Dale.[3]


Seals of the Great Glacier had thick, brown-colored fur. They had powerful flippers. Seals had smallish heads with sharp teeth.[2]


Seals could be observed chasing birds and fish, leaping from snow banks, and sunning on icebergs. They were thought of as playful, but could be ferocious when fighting.[2]

A seal could hold its breath for a very long time and was a superb swimmer.[1]


Seals were territorial and might defend their selected area of land with a dangerous bite.[1]


Seals lived in arctic coastal regions,[1] usually in coves,[2] and spent much of their time in the cold seas.[1] They thrived in the ice-filled waters of the Lugalpgotak and Nakalpgotak Seas, living in colonies of between ten and 100 animals. Young were kept in the safety of the coves with the females, while the males, called bulls, did most of the hunting.[2]

Seals were one of the primary game animals hunted by the Iulutiun people, providing them with food, fuel, and clothing.[2]


Three unique species of seal lived on the Great Glacier:[2]

  • Scoop seals, which had shovel-like flippers used for burrowing in snow,
  • Chatter seals, which mimicked voices, much like mockingbirds, and
  • Fanged seals, which had especially sharp teeth.
