In the realm of Everwinter, where snow blankets the earth and the northern lights dance across the sky, there exists a legend seldom told. Santa Claus, known to many as the bearer of joy and gifts, holds a secret protector - a majestic red dragon named Pyris.
Once a year, on the longest night, Santa embarks on his journey to deliver joy to the world. But this world is not just of merriment and cheer; there are forces that lurk in the shadows, seeking to quell the light of hope and joy. Pyris, with scales shimmering like rubies under the aurora borealis, is the guardian against such darkness.
Their bond formed many centuries ago, when Santa saved Pyris from a cruel enchantment. In gratitude, the dragon pledged to protect Santa and the spirit of Christmas. With a roar that echoes through the mountains and a breath that can melt even the coldest heart, Pyris is a fierce defender.
This night, as they stand side by side, Santa, clad in armor as resplendent as his companion's scales, readies his enchanted sword, a gift from the dragon himself. Together, they watch over the snow-covered village below, ensuring peace and protection as the world slumbers, awaiting the joy of Christmas morning. With Pyris at his side, Santa is not just a bringer of gifts, but a warrior of light, a beacon in the night against all that would dare threaten the magic of the season.
