From her great castle in the frozen reaches of Faerie, the Snow Queen rules high lands of eternal night.
|“||Everything has a name. The frost sketching its secrets on the windowpanes, the stars gleaming bitterly in the sky, a lover’s last breath. If you look long enough, and deep enough, you can find every name here, written in the Lady’s books. I’m looking for my own, but I can’t read. Can you?||”|
The Snow Queen's Antiquarians maintain her library — guarding books to which they may be physically bound, or annotating her collection. These librarians may be fortunate enough to escape by finding their mortal names in the Queen's books. Meanwhile, within the Diamond Castle's dungeons, Leechfingers tend to the Lady’s prisoners; often Leechfingers are former prisoners themselves, now become the torturers, having already had the life stolen out of them.
