Layout & Features[edit | edit source]
The Frozen Prison resembles a fairy-tale castle but the interior is anything but magical. Various wraiths and undead lie in wait, hidden from seeing eyes to launch themselves at trespassers. Located in the fifth floor of Nazarick where the entire terrain is a frozen wasteland, escape from this stronghold is impossible.
- Room of Nigredo: The cell where Nigredo, Overseer Guardian Albedo's sister, is kept in confinement. The entrance to her chamber is disguised as a painting of a mother cuddling her baby.
- Room of Truth (Pain is not to tell): Neuronist Painkill's personal place of office. In other words, where Neuronist and her Torturers process freshly caught captives for interrogation. It's filled with a number of horrendous torture contraptions and equipment.
- In Mass for the Dead, the function for Frozen Prison, save for Nigredo's cell, had to be shut down to conserve resources. Hence, Neuronist's torture facility was relocated to the floors under Shalltear Bloodfallen's control.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- It is said that the temperature inside the prison is even lower than that of the Arctic world of the 5th Floor.
- Cocytus is known to be training in his home at the Frozen Prison, and was visited by Shalltear.
- In Overlord: The Undead Oh!, the Frozen Prison resembles an icy mansion.
