The last Ice Titan stood alone.
All of his fellow Ice Titans had fallen to a vast assortment of heroes and hero wannabes. And so he was left alone.
And alone is all that he wanted to be.
He wanted to spend his last days before the Great Thaw in peace and quiet.
That was his plan.
Then, he saw them. The small black figures trekking across the snow plain and heading his way. They were so tiny and vulnerable and pathetic. He could stomp them easily with one foot. He could freeze them all with one breath.
But that’s what all of the other Ice Titans had said. And they were no more.
He would not make that mistake.
He would be careful.
He would be wary.
He would not underestimate them.
And who knows? With a little bit of luck, they would leave him in peace.
