I saw him o’er Winter, just after the war
The family waiting for the thick snow to thaw
My stepmother sent me to get wood for the fire
Her own daughter ne’er had to, in weather so dire
The forest was dark, even though ‘twere midday
The sounds all around caused me dismay
Suddenly I heard quick steps on the track
Then, there he was, dressed in all in black
His hair was ice grey, with a twinkle of blue
His suit, once purple, caked in soot from a flue
His face, like the moon, was curved like a crescent
And the teeth in his mouth were all sharp and unpleasant.
He looked down at me from his incredible height
And when he spoke his high voice caused a terrible fright
“Where are you going, little girl, on a night such as this?
Surely a thick woollen coat would not be amiss?”
I stammered and stuttered before I replied
My heart pounded faster, I could have just cried
But instead I responded and remembered good form
“Kind sir, well met, I am perfectly warm.”
He grinned and a twinkle appeared in his eye
“My, My aren’t you good? And so brave not to fly,
You may call me Morozko.” He said with a bow
Removing his hat that was as tall as our cow.
“Are you quite sure you’re warm little girl?” He persisted
I nodded quite firmly, “yes I am” I insisted
His smile widened, his face filled with delight
“You really are everso, very polite.”
From behind him he dragged out a very large chest
He pulled back the lid and I was very impressed
For inside were the most wonderful things
Coats, and dresses, a necklace and rings
“For your kindness I will give you all the things in this box.”
His smile looked a lot like a cunning old fox
“Take them home little girl, and always be good”
Then as quick as a flash there was nought where he stood
As I dragged home the chest, my heart all a flutter
My father appeared, and he started to stutter
“I thought I had lost you my sweet one.” He said
“You should be safe and warm, at home in your bed.”
I showed him the chest and he carried it home,
My stepmother was angry, she started to moan,
“She doesn’t deserve that! My daughter is better,
Take her to where you saw that old fellah.”
So we walked back outside, I in my coat
And my step-sister beside me, aloof and remote
We came to the place where I saw the strange man
My sister had clearly been forming a plan.
“Where are you? I’m freezing and I want a coat!
Can’t you see that I’ll die out here you old goat!”
Then Morozko appeared and his face was much grimmer
He’d lost his hat and his face was far thinner
“Why you nasty, spoiled and insolent brat!”
He screamed at her and caused her to take a step back
“For your rudeness I really must make redress”
He lifted his hand and he froze her to death
Some know how to summon and bind him, others know how to entice him and sometimes he will simply arrive and join the fray on one side or another. Kind Morozko and Unkind Morozko can be added to any Force in Mythos. He begins play as Kind Morozko, bestowing gifts to his allies, but then changes to Unkind Morozko when he is flipped. In this form he curses and cripples his enemies, often resorting to tearing them apart with his claws and teeth.
