A single pale tentacle has forced its way out of this shell.
The cold waters of the north are cruel, and the creatures that dwell within them are even crueler. Therefore it is incredibly curious that a creature such as this should exist, proof of kindness between foes. Ice krakens are the product of an union between a kraken and an ice octopus, and as such are not a common sight. The parents of this creature have historically been enemies, fighting and killing one another for untold millennia. Even so, here this companion is, in clear defiance of past and present hostilities. Ice krakens are neither octopi or kraken, but a strange mixture of the two. They can withstand the cold of the north, as well as some warmer climates. Instead of a kraken's four limbs, or an octopuses eight, ice krakens have six strong tentacles. They have a lovely crest along the top of their heads as well, which is an almost translucent grey blue. Some of the more passionate water magi students have taken to copying this crest with their hair. Ice krakens are considered to be very beautiful creatures. Their coloring is a melding of their parents'. Their bodies are a light color, while their markings are the same blue grey as their crests. These pale colors are to the ice kraken's advantage; in the snowy lands to the north, these creatures are all but impossible to see.
