Azgeda symbol

The symbol of Azgeda

The Azgeda, or Ice Nation, is a Grounder clan with no current leader. Known previous leaders were King Theo, Queen Nia, and King Roan.

Trikru and Azgeda were at war with each other before the creation of the Coalition. Lexa tells Clarke Griffin how the Queen of the Ice Nation[1] killed her former lover, Costia because she believed that Costia knew all of Lexa's secrets. In retaliation, Lexa banished Prince Roan as part of the conditions[2] of allowing the Ice Nation into the Coalition[3].

The Ice Nation stretches for thousands of miles. The Ice Nation borders Trikru territory at Sector 8, but the ice is farther to the north.

Society Edit

Many Azgeda have distinctive facial scarring. Roan went so far as to hiding them when he was on his mission to find Clarke Griffin and bring her to Lexa, indicating that these scars are often used to identify members of the Ice Nation.

Ice Nation warriors are known to wear white war paint.

Languages Edit

The Ice Nation speak the native Grounder language, Trigedasleng. The warriors also speak American English, Gonasleng. This makes the Ice Nation warriors bilingual.

They are referred to as the "Azgeda" in Trigedasleng.[4]
