|A long-extinct flower, covered in beads of frost, that once grew on the glaciers. There was a time when even the proudest and most arrogant warriors bowed before it.
This is a flower of ever-frost, plucked by a pair of gentle hands.
It must have given a certain someone the strength to see winter as a warm embrace.
"This fourth fresco is prepared for you. Your likeness will forever remain on this wall."
The maiden stood before a blank wall, and smiling, she pinned a small flower to the hero's breast.
Since then, the snow has melted — but this flower has not withered.
|A feather that exudes a chilly aura. One can almost feel the turbulent winds that brought it here, wailing over snow-covered plains and between frosty peaks.
A feather of a bird of prey that did not originally belong in the winter chill. It is cold to the touch.
And when you do touch it, it is as if you can hear cries in the snowstorm, unbowed but bereft of hope.
With no nest or shelter, the bird faced the storms proudly.
It once came from a falcon in flight and was plucked violently from that bird by the frigid winds.
"I believe that the lively birds will follow you, and return to the gardens of the summer palace, now green once more."
Sealed in ice, that feather's color faded every step of the way — just like the hero's task.
|Frozen Homeland's Demise|
|A timepiece from a nation of old that waited for their warriors' return. What flows inside is not sand, but bits of ice that never melt.
An ancient hourglass with fine powdered snow flowing in it.
Even the coldest winter cannot freeze the flow of time.
"The cold that descends from the sky can freeze time itself."
As the hero reached the top of the wall of wind and ice, the night was descending and the snowstorm was howling.
And even the most formidable hero will one day be forgotten.
|A cup carved out of ice that is as chilly and biting as winter. Its former master would drink an unfreezable liquor from it.
For the outlander who once searched for hope in midwinter on another's behalf,
Even the glass he drank from was carved out of ice.
Drinking bitter wine in this glass would feel like swallowing icicles that stung every inch of one's throat.
He was a warrior as silent as the ice itself, blocking the frigid winds that descended from the stars with his body.
"If fear or despair, both of which are within our nature, should crush you, or cause you to never return, then..."
And he would set out on an unending pursuit, towards the land of snow and profundity.
|Broken Rime's Echo|
|The crown of an ancient hero who dreamt of conquering the cold. It is proof of its former master's bravery in facing the bone-chilling cold of winter.
The hero set out on his journey, bearing the tiny hopes that the entombed city still had for salvation. Donning his winter crown, he marched purposefully away, disappearing into the boundless snowstorm.
Bearing his agreement with the mountain city, bearing their clear-eyed gazes, the hero never once feared the unknown beyond the icy curtain.
"Past the ice-sealed door, walking down the corridors to the depths,"
The maiden sang these songs to comfort her people, and she nursed her memories of him.
He would stand accused of flight by hateful words long ground to dust amid the snowstorms...
