Coille, The Forest Keeper

In the heart of the North Pole, where snow blankets the land and the air hums with magic, Franz tends to a unique herd—the reindeer. His role as the Reindeer Caretaker is both cherished and demanding.

Franz’s silver hair, braided into intricate patterns, mirrors the frost-kissed pines. His eyes, ancient and knowing, hold centuries of memories—the jingle of sleigh bells, the crunch of snow under hooves, and the whispered secrets of the reindeer themselves.

Each morning, he steps into the frosty stable. The reindeer—majestic creatures with antlers like frost-covered branches—gather around him. There’s Dasher, swift as a comet; Prancer, whose eyes hold the Northern Lights; and Vixen, playful and mischievous.

Franz knows them all—their quirks, their dreams. He whispers to them in the language of snowflakes, soothing their restless hearts. “Patience,” he tells Dancer, who longs for the open sky. “Wonder,” he promises to Cupid, who dreams of starlit meadows.

His quirk? A pendant—a tiny snowflake encased in crystal—hangs from his neck. It’s a symbol of his connection to the ancient magic that binds reindeer and sleigh. When he touches it, the herd stirs, their breaths forming frosty clouds.

Franz tends to their needs—their coats brushed until they gleam like moonlight, their hooves trimmed for nimble leaps. He knows their favorite treats—dried cranberries and whispers of forgotten carols. And when winter storms rage, he shelters them, singing lullabies that echo through the snowy night.

But Franz’s greatest joy? Guiding the youngest reindeer—the ones with stars in their eyes. He tells them tales of Santa’s sleigh, of constellations that map their way. “You,” he says to Comet, “will lead the way with courage.” And to Blitzen, he whispers, “Your lightning hooves will spark magic.”

And so, dear reader, next time you glimpse a sleigh streaking across the sky, remember Franz—the keeper of reindeer dreams, the weaver of snowflake spells. For in the heart of the North Pole, where wonder blooms like frost flowers, Franz tends to more than mere animals. He nurtures legends, ensuring that on Christmas Eve, the reindeer soar, and magic dances in their wake.
