The faint outline of a rider eventually broke through the motes of light, but steadily falling whiteness. The maraium armor was silver-gray in the gloaming. She could make out the thick fur that padded beneath it, to prevent its wearer from freezing, and it was gray and white. The paragons of humanity didn't dress like butchers did. Had they, it would have been red armor with a red cloak, and horses black as night.

Instead, it was Malik Voss, all in white, his horse's head turned northwards, the brown mastiff loping along beside the two of them. Sintija noticed that Malik had fashioned a sort of coat for the dog, the same as the lining of his armor. She knew that the dog, and the horse, were what passed for friends in his lonely world.

….The man reached up to unbuckle his helmet and when he removed it, she saw that he had worn a scarf, the outside of which seemed rife with frost crystals, as chilly as the helmet's visor had been. His iron-blue eyes tended towards greener hues near the iris; he set the helmet aside on his saddle.
