Can you imagine this little island in the middle of the Atlantic Ocean?
Well, it was here a long, long time ago in the land of fire and ice, a land we call Iceland where the Skrimslis were born. In the old days when the people of Iceland still lived in turf houses with only oil lamps to light their homes, they sometimes saw all kinds of ogres and strange creatures taking shape from the shadows of the flickering light. And that is how the Skrimslis came to be. Each and every one of them had their very own special life, living in turf houses with their people. Can you imagine the stories each of the Skrimslis have to tell?
However, Iceland evolved, and soon all homes were furnished with electricity. All the Skrimslis experienced the same fate. To survive, they needed to flee the overbearing and luminous electric lighting and new buildings. With sheer perseverance, they all moved to the lava fields, living in caves in a land they now call Lavaland.
