It features a younger Conan than in any other story; while he has left Cimmeria, he is still in the GrimUpNorth. After a battle in which he is the sole survivor, a mysterious, lightly clad woman appears and lures him over the snows until she reaches two giants, her brothers, whom she calls on to kill him. Conan kills them and goes after the woman, who escapes leaving her only garment in Conan's hand and calls on her father Ymir, who whisks her away. Other friends of Conan track him down, wondering why he left the battlefield, and at first disbelieve his story, but one of them had actually seen the woman, and he still has her garment.
