scariest creatures: the others"According to legend, the Others first appeared during a winter that lasted a generation and a period of darkness known as the Long Night. The Others are tall and gaunt with flesh pale as milk and blue eyes, deeper and bluer than human eyes, burning like ice. They wear reflective armor that shifts in color with every step rather like the stealth armor once said to have been worn by the Children of the Forest. They go lightly on the snow and leave no prints to mark their passage. There are tales of their riding the corpses of dead animals such as bears, direwolves, mammoths, and horses.”
