Not Yeti Friday - Cryonax

Cryonax is from Dungeons & Dragons.

As "Prince of Evil Ice Creatures", he is the most powerful creature of ice you can get. He is practically unrivaled in this department. He positively rules ice. And cold. But he's evil.

Any time you want a "cold one", you better thank Cryonax!!

If you say "she's as cold as ice" or "that was cooooold!", you better believe Cryonax is somewhere out there going like "Grrrr."

Cryonax has the body of a yeti. And tentacles for arms.

According to one source, he seeks to make ice the basic building block of reality.

Good luck with that, Cryonax.

So here's how he originally looked back in 1979:

From Fiend Folio

Here he is rolling with one of his buddies, another Elemental Prince of Evil:

Later depictions paint in him in a more favorable light:

Cryonax, you are one nasty piece of work.

And that's a compliment!
