Anivia is a creature of the icy winters, a mystical being of ice magic and an ancient protector of her teritory. She is in charge of all the of the land itself, calling the snow and harsh wind to defend her home from those who would intrude it. A well minded but mysterious creature she is eternally bound to keep an eye over the Freljord through life, death and rebirth.
Anivia is very much a part of the Freljord as the endless frost. Long before mortals had ever set foot on her land she had lived many lifetimes and died many deaths. The beginnings and ends of her eternal cycle always heralded great change, from the calming of raging storms to the ebb and flow of ice ages. It is said that when the cryophoenix dies an era ends and when reborn a new era begins.
Although her past lifetimes have vanished from her memory, she knows her purpose – she must protect the Freljord no matter what.
On her last reincarnation Anivia witnessed the rise of a mighty and united human tribe. She guarded their lands with pride as they prospered, but such unity could not last forever. The great tribe fractured into three, and after that upheaval, Anivia watched the people of the Freljord become embroiled in battle. As she strove to calm the turmoil tearing her home apart, Anivia began to sense a greater threat: an LissandraSquare.png ancient evil growing deep within the earth.
To her horror, she felt the pure magic of the ice itself become blackened and corrupt. Like blood in water, darkness crept into the Freljord. With her destiny so tied to the power of the land, Anivia knew if such evil took root in her home, that same darkness would find its way into her heart. She could no longer remain a mere guardian – the cryophoenix had to act.
Anivia soon discovered an ally in AsheSquare.png Ashe, the Frost Archer. Ashe too believed in unification as an end to the Freljord’s perpetual strife, and Anivia offered the tribal leader her aid. Now, with war on the horizon, Anivia prepares to fight for peace, but she knows the inevitable truth of her destiny. One day, evil will rise from the ice, and she must destroy it – no matter the cost.
