He spent most of his time sleeping on a bed of ice that covered his hoard.
He was killed by Drizzt Do'Urden and Wulfgar on Eleasis 26, 1356 DR, after Wulfgar threw his warhammer Aegis-fang into an icicle that fell and impaled him, so that he would have a trophy that would enable him to challenge the leader of his barbarian tribe to a duel. Interestingly, the trophy was the dragon's horns, a part not usually found on white dragons.
The barbarian tribes north of the Spine of the World mountain range called him "Icingdeath", although this name is more commonly associated with one of Drizzt Do'Urden's scimitars. (This is due to the fact that Drizzt found the scimitar Icingdeath in the dragon Icingdeath's hoard.)
