Once a year, in the middle of winter, Jólakötturinn grows to an enormous size and goes out to consume children who weren’t given clothes as a Yule present.

This is his true form.

For the rest of the year, however, his curse causes him to shrink back to the size of a regular cat.

This is a fact that makes him extremely bitter.

Recently, Jólakötturinn has been kidnapping mice and other intelligent animals from nearby communities, seeking magical knowledge on how to break his curse. If not stopped, there's no telling what damage will be wrought as he tries to succeed.


'The Yule Cat' is a NPC designed for use with the Mausritter role-playing game, written as part of the Winter Has Come Game Jam.

It is also intended as a companion piece to my Mythoi article on the folkloric history of the Yule Cat, which you can read here.
