In the Snow Kingdom, the Ice Princess Pintina lived with her parents, the Ice King and the Ice Queen. Pintina was a beautiful princess with long silver hair and sparkling blue eyes. She had been born with the power to control ice and snow, just like her parents.
One day, a dead Phoenix was found in the Snow Garden. The Phoenix was a rare and magical creature that was said to be immortal, but this one had met an untimely end. The Ice King and Queen were alarmed, for they knew that the Phoenix was a symbol of the Fire God, their greatest enemy.
The Ice King and Queen held a grand Goblin Ball to find the true murderer of the Phoenix. All the important creatures of the Snow Kingdom were invited, from the Snow Fairies to the Ice Giants. Pintina was excited to attend the ball, for she had always loved the Goblin Balls. She was dressed in a sparkling silver gown and a diamond tiara.
As the guests arrived, the Ice King and Queen asked them all questions about the murder. The Snow Fairies said they had seen nothing, but the Ice Giants had heard something strange in the night. The Polar Bears had smelled something burning, and the Snow Leopards had seen a flash of fire. Everyone had a different story, but nobody had seen the killer.
As the night went on, Pintina started to feel uneasy. She had killed the Phoenix, but nobody knew. She had done it to prove her loyalty to the Ice King and Queen, for she knew that the Phoenix was really the Fire God in disguise. But now she regretted her actions.
Suddenly, the Ice King and Queen called for silence. "We have found the murderer!" they announced. "It is none other than our own daughter, Pintina, the Ice Princess!"
Pintina was shocked. She couldn't believe that she had been found out. The guests gasped in horror, for they had never expected the Ice Princess to be capable of murder.
Pintina was taken to Ember Rule, the capital of the Fire Kingdom, to answer for her crimes.
