Munjieou • The Rime Who is Inevitable

Western Munjieou (pronounced “Mun-YEOH) loves to watch the sun set on his realm, and despite his sluggish appeal, is the busiest of the Four Snows. He is responsible for punctually tucking in all the days between September and January early, to meet the solstice requirements. His left eye is indicative of this, and is frozen and grey for the rest of the year otherwise. He is a giant, nearly ten meteres tall, and is often mistaken for a small hill in the mist.

Munjeiou, like his sibling-aspects has two horns as well, but wears giant fuda as a sash. He is permanently covered in hoarfrost and his hands continue into large lumps of perpetually shapechanging ice blocks. He points the way to the Parade to those who die disappointed, remorseful, to those who are crushed under heavy things, and those who die thirsty in the desert. Munjieou very much looks forward to the Parade every year, as seeing new Walkers makes him feel nostalgic and proud of his job.


Inspired by the traditional Japanese mountain ogre » the Oni, and the frost giants of Norse mythology. Also Thrall, because he is made of awesome bananas.
