Summary

The fearsome Dreadfrost Boreus consumes frost aether and commands beastly minions with its uncanny psionic power. These creatures act as extensions of the Behemoth itself, drawing on their master's strength while intercepting any harm Slayers might try to inflict.

Summary

The Lesser Boreus may not be as large or strong as the more mature varieties, but it still dominates its minions with psionic force and quite effectively uses frost aether to shield itself from attack.

Minions

Stalkers

Stalkers are lean, toothy creatures that prefer to surround Slayers and jab at them with their razor-sharp legs. They can be easily distinguished by their long, blade-like limbs, and are slightly smaller than other minions.

Spitter

The aptly nicknamed spitters prefer to strike from range, lobbing cold, frost-charged projectiles from their mouths. These icy spitballs can inflict a surprising amount of harm on unsuspecting Slayers.

Bomber

Perhaps the most dramatic of the Boreus’ minions are the bombers – self-destructive creatures that can prime their bodies with an explosive aether charge. Bombers sacrifice themselves to blast the Boreus’ foes, sometimes even taking other minions with them.

Lore

The Boreus was thought for a long time to be extinct. The records of the Orrery thought the sigtings of the Boreus was a hoax.
The Orrery has records of the Boreus that date from a century ago. I’ve seen those records, and the disbelieving notes my predecessors scribbled all over them. “Impossible,” they called it. “A hoax.” “Clearly the delusions of Slayers who spent too much time in the sky.” As if aether cannot make anything possible. Even a giant horned beast that can control flying minions with only its mind. One thing is indisputable: The Orrery believed this Behemoth to be long extinct. Clearly they were mistaken.


When the Boreus was discovered not to be a myth, a mysterious note was left on the floor of the Bormen smithy.

Z –

Brought you a few gifts. Three, each one different. A spitter. A stalker. A bomber. Haven’t seen anything this strange before, and I know you like strange things. At least I think so. Look, maybe you can do something with them. Maybe not. Whatever. Write back or don’t, Hammer Boy. You’re not so cool. Maybe.
