Like the firedrake, an icedrake is a mythological dragon that appears in Norse mythology. It is a smaller-than-average classical-style dragon, unusual for its ability to project not a stream of flame, but of ice. Depending on the depiction, they may or may not have wings. Though not very important in mythology, the icedrake shows up commonly in books, movies and video games. It has intruiged generations of mythology buffs, and thus its modern representations in media far overshadow its role in real Norse myths.
