So that warmth between Syr’Nj and Frigg from the last chapter is already feeling the chill. Syr’Nj’s intellect is coming up against a wall in terms of finding the winter elves, and Frigg is usually at her surliest when facing a foe she can’t fight, like the cold.

Diplomatically, though, Syr’Nj does elect not to tell Frigg that WAV is toasty warm within his armor. That probably wouln’t benefit anybody.
