Frost Daedra start combat with a number of frostball spells, and, like their fire-based counterparts, can be very deadly in close combat for low-level characters. They are weak to fire-based spells. Like Fire Daedra, they can be engaged in conversation and their dislike of Fire Daedra can be used to your advantage, but they will likely attack you after you speak to them.

Level 4: Shade Perilous Dialogue
This is spoken by any Frost Daedra in Shade Perilous when engaged in conversation:
Interloper! This realm is not for your brittle kind!
|Who you calling brittle, ice boy?||END|
|Who is this realm for, then?||Reply 1|
|I'll shatter you like an icicle!||END|
|[&XivilaiName] Quite right! This realm is only for the great Xivilai Moath!||Reply 6|
|[&FaydraName] Quite right! This realm is only for the great Faydra Shardai!||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
For us! With but an infinitesimal measure of our vast power have the Frost Daedra subjugated this land!
|Whom do you serve?||Reply 2 &FrBrag|
|With an infinitesimal measure of my vast power I'll subjugate you!||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
You are not fit to utter the name of the master of the Frost Daedra, mortal!
|Why do you want this land?||Reply 3|
|I am fit to skewer your chilly chitterlings, though.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
This land holds rich mysteries and great rewards. But not for mortals. Now I shall end your profane trespass.
|Talk tough to me, pretty boy.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
|[&FDBrag] The Fire Daedra say that this realm belongs to them.||Reply 4|
Oh they do? They cannot be trusted. It was our lord who challenged the forces of the Nocturnal Lieutenant! Many Frost Daedra melted in the conflagration before the battle was won. None may take that triumph from us!
|Well, I just don't know who to believe. Excuse me while I give this a good long think.||END|
|If I were you, I'd blast them all to Oblivion before they can claim all the credit for your glorious triumphs.||Reply 5|
We do not need to be schooled by a puny manling. For all their refusal to hew to rigors of lawful conduct, the Fire Daedra belong here. You do not. We shall expunge you.
|Ouch. I cringe abjectly in sheer anticipation of your titanic fury. Sheesh. What a blowhard.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
ALL HAIL XIVILAI MOATH!*
|YEAH! ALL HAIL XIVILAI MOATH!||Reply 7 &XivilaiName|
|Now you are under my command!||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
*This reply also functions as a second greeting.
The great Xivilai Moath shall bring order and control to this dark land! Xivilai alone deserves to rule here!
|Yeah? Well, maybe Xivilai isn't the only one planning to harvest the power and glory for this triumph.||Reply 8|
|[&FaydraName] Faydra will fry you guys.||Reply 8|
Hah! Xivilai alone will possess this rich, darkling land! He is the true heir to the great Mehrunes Dagon! Faydra Shardai is too consumed with fripperies and foolishness to do the hard work of conquest. Her Fire Daedra are too frivolous to harvest the mana riches of this realm, just as they were too frivolous to help imprison the Nocturnal Lieutenant.
|So what are we going to do about those pesky Fire Daedra?||Reply 9 &FaydraName|
Our accursed pact forbids us from fighting them directly. But we deserve the mana, and they deserve Oblivion.
|Hah! You're out of luck! You did all the work and they get all the mana!||Reply 10|
|Tell you what. If you help me kill them, I'll do your dirty work for you.||Reply 11|
You are insolent, manling. You must be taught a lesson.
|Goody, goody. Show me something fancy, twinkle toes.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
Yes! That is a most orderly arrangement! We agree, and to seal the pact, we shall gift you with the Greaves of Ice Crystals. Its potent charm will protect your bones from the scorching heat of the Fire Daedra.
|I don't trust you enough to take your tricky trinkets! So long, iceman.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
|Thanks. Now we are great friends forever. Right?||Reply 12 Put 27_4010|
Understand that servitors of the great Xivilai Moath must continue to attack you as long as you are within the Shade Perilous. Flee vigorously from us and attack the Fire Daedra! Bring all our enemies to heel!
|You know it. Now excuse me while I dampen a few fires.||END &FrostPal|
|Hey, what do you know about the Dremora?||Reply 13|
They serve our Lord Mehrunes Dagon through the court of the Grand Vizier, Imago Storm.
|What's this Imago Storm up to?||Reply 14 &StormName|
He controls the details of the invasion, that our Lord Mehrunes Dagon may be free to think greater thoughts.
|Is Imago loyal to Dagon?||Reply 15|
What strange thoughts you mortals may entertain. ALL are loyal to our Lord Mehrunes Dagon. Now go and root out the interloper Fire Daedra!
|Thank you for your wisdom and generosity. Goodbye.||END &FrostPal|

Level 5: The Chimera of Desolation Dialogue
We are the Lesser Dogs. We Drag the land to flush out the Hare, in accordance with the Laws of the Wild Hunt.
|What ARE you talking about? You're no Lesser Dog. You're a Frost Daedra. You can't fool me.||Reply 1|
|You're pretty low down dog all right.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
|Are you insinuating that I am a bunny rabbit?||Reply 1|
|I'm the Ice Whacker. I swing my blade to chop ice, in accordance with the Laws of goofy Frost Daedra.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
Grr. We will take special delight in destroying you, mortal! It was YOU who brought down the wrath of the Nocturnals upon our kinsmen! Because of you, all Frost Daedra have been punished for the siege of the Shade Perilous! Because of you, even Frost Daedra who took no part in the siege are lowered in status. We are no longer equals to our kinsmen, the Fire Daedra! The Fire Daedra get to be the GREATER HOUNDS, but we must be the LESSER DOGS.
|By ALL the Powers! How can you BEAR such humiliation?||Reply 7 &Blame|
|I'd cough up a little sympathy, but you guys are TRYING TO KILL ME! I am SICK of your whining. Goodbye.||END MonsterAttack|
|I'm SO sorry. Does that mean even greater disgrace when I zip through the gates out of here and leave you poor puppies barking in the fog?||Reply 2|
No way! You. Never. Look. The only way out is through the Temple of Daedric Rites.
|Well, I can see where YOU might think that was a big deal, but it's small potatoes to a manling hero like myself.||Reply 3|
No way! Never. You can't even get INTO Granvellusa with the drawbridge up, and even if you could, you need the six keys.
|Come on. I know where the six keys are. That's no big secret.||Reply 4|
No. WAY! Who told you?
|You're not going to trick ME into turning informer! It's not THEIR fault! You know what stupid blabbermouths the Fire Daedra are. No one in their right mind would EVER tell a secret to those clowns.||Reply 5|
But. But. But. They told you EVERYTHING?
|What do you think?||Reply 6|
About Huntsman Egahirn taking the sixth key, even though it's against the Law?
|Oh, I know it is hard to believe that even the FIRE Daedra could be stupid enough to blab ALL those secrets. But you saw what happened in Shade Perilous. Oh. Sorry. Didn't mean to rub it in. And it wasn't YOUR fault, after all. Oh. Gosh. How the time flies. Got to be going. See you later.||END &Egahirn|
We are the Lesser Dogs. We Drag the land to flush out the Hare, in accordance with the Laws of the Wild Hunt. While those jerk Fire Daedra get to be the Greater Dogs. Oh. It makes me so mad I could burst!
|Hah-hah-hah! Hah-hah-hah! You guys are so dumb! Hah-hah-hah!||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
|Isn't that just the way? Some guys do all the real work, and other guys steal the credit? I makes me so sick I could puke.||Reply 7|
We would be FAR better Greater Hounds than the Damned Fire Daedra, but THEY have greater status with Mehrunes Dagon now. Harumph! It is not properly LAWFUL! It is not lawful that we Frost Daedra pay the price alone! It is not lawful that our master Xivilai Moath needs must drop in status over the failed siege of the Shade Perilous! Faydra Shardai gave the orders, and WE get punished for carrying them out! Now the Fire Daedra get to become the Chase, and we are nothing but the Drag! Oh, the INJUSTICE!
|That's terrible! How unjust! How unlawful! Extra double super unlawful.||Reply 8 &Tattle|
|For such a powerful supernatural entity, you sure are a big whiner.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
Yes! Yes! You understand! You know that this is not lawful! The Fire Daedra should have to be the Drag as well as us! They should be punished too, and not just us!
|Puh-LEEZE quit the whining. I know you got a raw deal, but do you have to be such babies about it? Why don't you go kick some Fire Daedra butt?||Reply 11|
|You're so right! Unlawful! It's just UNLAWFUL. Those rotten Fire Daedra should be punished MORE! After all, they cooked up the plan!||Reply 9|
Yes! It's all their fault! You know it is their fault! You were there! You saw it!
|Yep. I know it and you know it. Too bad Dagon doesn't know it.||Reply 10|
|By all the Gods and Powers, I was there. I saw it. It was obvious even to a lowly mortal. Those Fire Daedra made a TOTAL mess of everything.||Reply 10|
Mortal! You must tell what you know!
|To whom?||Reply 12|
|Oh, like I'm supposed to help you? In case you haven't noticed, I'm being HUNTED here! Look. I HAVE BETTER THINGS TO DO. Goodbye.||END|
Human FOOL! That would be unlawful. To fall upon one another like animals? In the middle of the Sacred Hunt? Have you no shame?
|Sorry. You're right, of course. What COULD I have been thinking? But doesn't it just burn your buns that the Fire Daedra are placed over you in the Hunt, and that you get punished for THEIR faults?||Reply 9|
Say what you know in front of the Dark Seducer. That will send the facts directly to Dagon, for she is the Dagon's spy in the realms of- Aaaargh! You must forget what I said! I must kill you now!
|Hold on, buckaroo. I don't care if you ARE evil fiends from the bowels of the Pit. I can't stand by and see such an UNLAWFUL INJUSTICE done. Even to you pitiful whiners. So. Keep your icy blasts to yourself for a bit, and I'll go tell the Dark Seducer what I know. Okay?||Reply 13|
|Fine with me. I'd rather endure your majestic fury than your pathetic whining.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
You can? You will? Thank you, manling. You are a creature of Lawful honor.
|But first you'll tell me the rules to this Damned Hunt. I mean, it's only LAWFUL, isn't it?||Reply 14|
|Yes. But I need to know the rules to this damned hunt if I'm to survive.||Reply 14|
|No. Just jerking your pitifully short chain.||END MonsterAttack &FrostMad|
|Don't mention it. See you around.||END Command FT_13|
Oh. Well. Of course. Most lawful. In accordance with the Law, the Hunt is posted near the ancient stones and before the Chapel of the Innocent Quarry. And the Master of the Hunt -- the nasty winged woman with the really big -- you know -- the floppy things -- wings! -- by the Law, she must tell the Hare the rules.
|So. These Huntsmen? Isn't this Wild Hunt stuff dangerous?||Reply 15|
Oh, no, mortal. Only the Dogs may take hurt in the Hunt. The Law of the Hunt protects the Huntsmen and Master of the Hunt from all mortal weapons. That is the Law.
|And extra super Lawful it is, I'm sure. Well, couldn't they get accidentally poked with those weird spears they carry?||Reply 16|
Oh. Well. I think. Maybe. Yes. No.
|I think that covers all the cases quite nicely. Well, thanks. And one more thing. I'd like to go view the architectural triumphs of the Chapel of the Innocent Quarry. You know. Don't get round here every day. Know how to get in?||Reply 17|
We do not know! The great Sigil blocks the door, and we can't get in. Only the Greater Hounds and the Huntsmen are allowed in the Chapel of the Innocent Quarry. It is so unjust that we be locked out of the Chapel! Unlawful!
|Ah, yes. As you said, about a billion times, it is unlawful. Well. A lovely chat. Now I suppose we should get back to chasing around and kicking the daylights out of one another. Ready? Let's go.||END|
