Thrym was a titan,[2] worshiped by the frost giants[1][2][3][4] as the giant god of cold and ice.[5][6] He was the de facto leader of the frost giants as well.[1][5] Thrym ruled the realm of Fimbulwinter in the Elemental Chaos, described as a large, desolate tundra accented by sparkling frozen waterfalls. His stronghold and feast hall was called Nyfholl.[2] In earlier cosmological models his realm was described as mountainous but still filled with snow, ice, frost, and glaciers.[7]

DescriptionEdit

Thrym appeared as an exceptionally large frost giant. He typically wore chainmail and a coat made of white fur.[1]

PersonalityEdit

When not directly preparing for war, Thrym was known to be fairly aloof,[8] wandering his realm restlessly.[7]

AbilitiesEdit

Thrym could breathe a devastating cone of cold out to 100 ft (30 m) and was completely immune to cold- or ice-based attacks. Only highly magical weapons could even touch him enough to injure him. He often granted frost giants the ability to use arcane magic equivalent to a 12th-level wizard.[5]

PossessionsEdit

His signature weapon was a large double-bladed greataxe.[1][3][4][5]

RelationshipsEdit

Thrym was a son of Annam All-Father.[9]

Thyrm was known to have a rivalry with his twin, Surtur. Since birth, the two had competed to be the first at everything.[10]

NotesEdit

  • Thrym was borrowed from the Norse pantheon[1][5][6] and exists in both the Forgotten Realms and Greyhawk campaign settings.[11]
