I've my own reasons for volunteering for this expedition. This icy bulk holds my heart—and not a day or night in the last five years have I not felt the weight of winter upon my breast.
Lancefer was a villager of Falcon's Nest before the Calamity brought an unnatural cold to Coerthas and created the ice wall of Snowcloak between the central and western highlands.
When the freeze came, Lancefer and his wife fled through the narrow canyon that connected the two regions. A snowslide struck, her hand slipping from his as she was left behind.
An adventurer was able to help Lancefer find closure at last; lacking the stomach to pick through the corpses of friends and neighbors in search of his wife's, the adventurer brought back his wife's ring of troth. By removing the ring, Lancefer wished his wife freedom to wed again in the afterlife.
