Winternight was a terrorist apocalypse cult based in Scandinavia but operating world-wide.
Drawing inspiration from Norse mythology Winternight tried to cause Ragnarök - the world-ending final battle between the Aesir gods led by Odin and their enemies led by Loki.
Leaders[edytuj | edytuj kod]
Winternight was led by three persons collectively know as the Norns:
- Wednesday - an Asatru priest and toxic idol shaman, Wednesday led a small radical cult before meeting Friday and founding Winternight. During the Crash 2.0 Wednesday, alongside Friday, was captured by a EuroPol undercover operative but commited suicide before he could be interrogated.
- Thursday - a berserker adept and veteran of the EuroWars, Thursday coordinated Vahalla's defenses and eventually detonated the nuclear bomb that destroyed the base and killed both attackers and remaining defenders.
- Friday - once a Swedish scientist named Frida Kohlmann, Friday lost her family and her career in the Matrix Crash of 2029. She developed an intense hatred for the Matrix and, looking for spiritual guidance and relief, started to dabble in viking cults. In 2031 she met Wednesday and became his partner. Frida became Friday and Winternight was born.
She was captured alongside Wednesday but her magical defenses delayed interrogation until the Jormundgand virus had been activated. Friday then broke down and revealed the existence and purpose of Winternight's nuclear arsenal.
