|Behind the Scenes|
The Frigians are a sapient alien race.
As their name suggests they are humanoid beings made of ice.
The Frigians hail from a world in a different dimension. They have been at war with another race called the Thermians for years. Earth has been a battleground between these two races as it acts as an interface point between the Thermians' home-world and the Frigians'. Both groups keep opening spacial portals to launch attacks at one another from Earth, prompting the Honor Guard to intervene during these battles to minimize collateral damage.
