A recent article suggested the theory that Frosty, and perhaps all snowmen, are liches, a class of creature from D&D characherized as an undead wizard who has attached their soul to a cursed object that possesses people. What do y’all think?
I think this a brilliant idea for a story, particularly the sort of thing Dr Who or Friday the 13th TV series must have tried at some point, but not particularly applicable to Frosty, who I think is closer to a genie or one of the thought form avatars we see in American Gods. I am also now seeing some similarities between liches and horcruxes.
How would you taxonomize Frosty? I’ll also open up discussion to enjoyable speculation about the supernatural taxonomy of other non obvious fictional characters.
