Ice Hounds
Icehound, from Ultima IX manual
Only appearance: Ultima IX

They are the opposite of hellhounds, having a constitution based on cold. Their icy breath can immobilise an enemy in seconds. Once defeated, an icehound will melt into an innocuous puddle of water.

They only appeared once, in Ultima IX.

They are found only in cold regions.


This watery creature of the Pit serves the bidding of more powerful beasts, yet do not underestimate these cunning creatures. A freezing breath can immobilise a warrior, leaving him defenceless against attacks from the rear and side. Large teeth and superior hearing make any encounter with an icehound a fatal one for man or hound.
