"It is just as the spies described."

This article has recently been converted to the new character-focused layout but it needs a lore enthusiast to help fill-out the sections. In addition, 'Relations trivia' and 'Lore trivia' have been moved here but need restructuring into article content - lore is no longer trivia.

If you're eager to help but would like to reference a completed character article: Aurelion Sol, Jinx, Mel, and Viego are excellent.

Early Life

Contemporary history

Recent events



Nunu is a kind, excitable child, eager for adventures and travelling. Having listened to the stories of his mother since he was born, Nunu dreams of being a might hero, fighting against terrible foes and exploring the world.

After the loss of his tribe, Nunu felt great sorrow, but nevertheless remained hopeful. Desiring to help his new caretaker Lissandra, and wishing to fullfill his dreams of being a hero, Nunu went to face a terrible beast and prove himself a hero for his people, only to meet Willump and befriend the yeti, the two forming an intense and loving bond.

Having been protected by Willump for a long time Nunu is somewhat sheltered from the more complicated and darker aspects of life, he tends to see the best of people, for good or for worst and try to insert them in his very naive beliefs about the world. Nunu also has hyperactive imagination, often coming up with fantasious ideas to entertain himself and Willump.


  • Mystical Empowerment: Nunu was blessed by Willump with the powers of a gem of dreams, granting him the power to make his imagination come true. Due to his inexperience, Nunu's powers have yet to reach their peak.
    • Ice Magic: Nunu can create and summon ice to his aid, and to help his allies. He can create icy constructs like bridges and walls, or summon near infinite snowballs to throw at his foes. He freeze his foes with ice, slowing them down to hamper their abilities.
      • True Ice: Nunu is capable of summoning True Ice, magical, unmeltable ice.

Character blurb
Updated to current version.
MISSING Original version.
Frolicking through the hills of the Freljord, Nunu and Willump make an unlikely pair, but many travellers would swear they have seen the yeti with a fearless boy clinging to his back. Though Nunu may have tamed the beast's heart, Willump's anger remains, fueled by a ravenous hunger. Some have even tried to separate the two, yet the bond of friendship between them is stronger than any chain, and they continue to ramble on their wild adventures.
