Halgrind is a vrykul town found in Howling Fjord, [50, 52] being exposed to a new plague being designed by the Royal Apothecary Society. When the Forsaken took control of the town, the chieftain, Thorvald, fled.
The remaining vyrkul, while not dropping dead from exposure, found themselves trapped and slowly killed off by players.
- It may be a possible reference to "Helgrind" from the Eragon series of books by Christopher Paolini.
- It could also be an amalgamation of the words "Hael", the Old-Norse word for Hell, and "Grind", the Swedish word for gate. As the vrykul are themselves a reference to vikings, it would seem very appropriate.
