|“I shall unleash Boreal! Boreal shall punish the village.”|
Boreal is Zane's loyal dragon that can be awakened using the Ice Staff. He is also the fearsome and dreaded ice dragon that guards the Castle of Ice. Zane used it to freeze the village of the Formlings and the Great Lake.
The Last of the Formlings (Flashback)
After the Formlings refused to align with Vex, he persuaded Zane to attack the village. Zane had Boreal freeze the village, leaving most the citizens frozen. The lone survivor, Akita, had watched in horror and attempted to attack Zane and Vex but Boreal impeded her. The ice dragon attempted to attack her though she was saved by her brother Kataru who clawed the dragon's wings. However, Kataru was apparently frozen in the process. After seeing the villains leave, she then swore revenge on them
Zane saw Boreal in his dream again.
Boreal flew by the mountains and headed for the Great Lake, with the Ninja and Krag catching sight of it. Boreal headed to the village, where it proceeded to freeze a majority the villagers. Kai tried to hold off the beast, though he was unable to stand a chance. Boreal ended up freezing the entire village, leaving the Ninja horrified. Boreal later made its way to the Castle of Ice. Along the way, it encountered Lloyd, and they battled. Akita tried to help but was knocked aside by Boreal. The Ice dragon ended up destroying the Titan Mech, defeating him. Boreal moved to finish Lloyd, though Vex contacted it and told it to spare the weakened Ninja who was brought before the Emperor and learned the identify of the Ice Emperor as Zane.
