Tsarine Katarina

The magical sword Fearfrost is an heirloom of the Tzarinas of Kislev, and is currently wielded by Tzarina Katarin, the Ice Queen of Kislev.

Origins and Abilities

This magical sword was forged in the time of Tzarina Miska of the Gospodar, when she conquered whole swathes of the Empire. The blade has been passed from Tzarina to Tzarina as a symbol of queenship, and may only be lifted by a woman. Were a man to lift the blade, he would be frozen to death instantly. The sword is infused with Ice Magic, and a single scratch can lead to death from the intense cold. Indeed, waves of icy chill visibly radiate from the weapon, even when not in use.[3a]

Background changes

In the Warhammer Armies: Dwarfs from the 4th edition says that it was the Dwarf Runesmith Alaric the Mad who forged Fearfrost for Miska, that no longer agrees with the established background, because they are separated by almost 1,500 years of difference.
