Based on the events of the Norwegian movie, Cold Prey.
Location: Jotunheimen - Norway. Leirvassbu.
Killer: Fjellmannen (The Mountain Man) - Geir Olav Brath.
Age: In his 40's
Physique: Large, burly and strong.

Geir was emotionally withdrawn as a child, and considered strange by those who knew him.
His first moments of life were spent in a limbo between life and death after his birth before he was revived.
After that, Geir seemed to be devoid of all emotions to the point of not even crying as a normal child would.
Throughout his early life, Geir was subject to physical and emotional abuse at the hands of his stepfather, who never considered him to be his son.
This seemed to severely affect Geir's mental and emotional state, with his often strange behavior resulting from this subject to extreme cruelty by his stepfather.
In spite of this, Geir seemed to care for his mother, who treated him with kindness but was unable to prevent the abuse Geir suffered.
After being buried alive by his stepfather while his mother watched on, Geir's mental stability shattered, transforming from an emotionally vulnerable child to a cold, and brutal killer.
The only person Geir seemed to have any affection for after this incident was Jon Stølen, a hermit who rescued him and nursed him back to health.
Jon also taught him how to hunt, gather food, and survive in the wilderness without attracting attention to himself.
After moving back to his family's now abandoned lodge, Geir would live there in isolation, killing anyone who traveled there without mercy and collecting his victims personal items as keepsakes.
Base Move Speed - 4.6m/s (115%)
Base Terror Radius - 32m

Geir Olav Brath was born sometime in the mid-60s by a woman named Sigrid and an unknown father.
He was stillborn, and a death certificate was written. However, four hours later, he suddenly appeared to be alive, and never cried.
When Geir was young, Sigrid married a man named Gunnar in the 1970s, who owned a mountain lodge in Jotunheimen.
Gunnar was extremely abusive towards the boy, often locking him in the lodge's basement for hours, and frequently abusing him verbally and physically.
Geir's mother loved him very much, but enabled her husband's behavior, and did nothing to stop the abuse.
In 1976, having enough of his stepfather's abuse, Geir attempted to escape from the lodge.
Geir was ruthlessly pursued by his father, who soon caught up to him and proceeded to bury him alive as his mother watched on silently.
Leaving him to die in the cold, Geir's parents reported him "missing" with massive search party organized in an attempt to find him.
Geir, however, survived and returned to the lodge after several days, where he encountered his mother.
She tearfully embraced the emotionless Geir, who, enraged by her betrayal, stabbed her to death, watching in cold detachment as she died on the floor.
Gunnar later came across Sigrid's dead body, and not long after, was ambushed and murdered by Geir.
After disposing of his parent's corpses, Geir was discovered by Jon Stølen, a hermit who is the brother of Einar, the sheriff in the Bøverdalen area.
From 1976 to 1988, he was raised by Jon and taught how to live as a hermit, and learned about hunting animals without drawing the attention of other people.
In the summer of 1988, Geir began his first killing spree against a group of young adults camping in the woods.
The group of friends decided to stay at the lodge, which had been abandoned since the murder of his parents 12 years earlier.
Throughout the 90s and early 2000s, he stalked and murdered a total of 110 unsuspecting hikers who came across the lodge,
before collecting their belongings and dumping their corpses in a close-by glacier ravine, leaving a large number of disappearance cases unresolved.
The next known murder spree took place at the lodge, having been abandoned for 30 years now.
A group of snowboarders, Jannicke, Eirik, Ingunn, Mikal, and Morten Tobias, sought refuge in the lodge after Morten broke his leg from a snowboarding accident.
Geir first attacked Ingunn, brutally butchering the young woman to death with a pickaxe as she tried to escape.
Geir later came across Eirik, whom he knocked unconscious after one of the friends discovered a pool of blood on the floor of the room Ingunn was staying in.
While the group began looking for Ingunn, Geir attempted to kill Mikal, who managed to escape and hide.
As Geir began searching for members of the group, Mikal once again came face-to-face with Geir outside of the tool shed, and was subsequently murdered.
Geir chases the remaining survivors to the deeper part of the lodge, where they discover Eirik, who has regained consciousness but are unable to free him in time as Geir captures him.
Jannicke then tries to lure Geir out and shoot him with a shotgun with one shell recovered from the shed.
However, Geir is aware of this, and uses a conscious Eirik as a human shield when opening the door.
Panicked and not wanting to hit Eirik, Jannicke accidentally fires at the wall, using up the one shell in the shotgun.
Geir then murders Eirik in front of the horrified group before giving chase.
Out of his love for Jannicke, Morten grabs the shotgun from her hands and tells her to run, saving her in the process.
He threatens Geir with the shotgun and tells him to back away shortly before he is murdered.
He then pursues Jannicke, who is running away from the lodge outside, and knocks her unconscious.
Believing her to be dead, Geir collects her and the group's corpses and then proceeded to take them to the ravine to dispose of them.
However, Jannicke soon regains consciousness and attacks Geir. After a short struggle, Jannicke tears off Geir's balaclava, revealing his birthmark and temporarily stunning him.
Jannicke then proceeds to stab Geir in the chest with his own pickaxe, causing him to fall down the ravine to his supposed death.
A couple of days after the killing spree at the lodge, Jannicke is discovered standing in the cold, and is brought to a hospital to recover.
Authorities are later sent down to the ravine to collect the corpses, including Geir, where they are brought to the hospital's morgue.
One of the nurses examines Geir on an operating table and touches his chest wound, causing him to convulse in pain and show signs of life again.
Hospital staff then attempt to resuscitate Geir with defibrillators, and his condition improves with time.
The police cuff Geir's hand to the hospital bed, when he regains consciousness and breaks his hand free from the handcuffs, slashing a police officer's throat with them in the process.
After slaughtering a majority of the hospital staff, he discovers that Jannicke is also in the hospital, and begins searching for her to kill her in revenge for his defeat.
While trying to evade Geir, Jannicke encounters a young boy that she had met in the hospital, and one of the nurses, Camilla, and soon brings them to safety.
The police and special forces are waiting outside, and enter the hospital to capture Geir. However, they are killed by in the process, and Geir escapes the hospital, returning back to his lodge soon after.
Jannicke goes back to the lodge with a stolen police shotgun, and waits for Geir to appear so she can shoot him.
She accidentally falls asleep not long after, and when morning comes, Geir attacks Jannicke.
They get into a struggle, and Geir is about to kill Jannicke, but Camilla appears behind Geir and shoots his fingers off with a shotgun.
Enraged, Geir chases Camilla outside and attempts to kill her, but is soon impaled with his own pickaxe after Jannicke throws it at him from behind.
Mortally wounded, Geir falls to the ground as Jannicke approaches him, shotgun in-hand.
Seeking to avenge her friends' deaths, Jannicke executes Geir by shooting him 4 times in the head, ending his reign of terror once and for all.
Before they were able to leave the lodge, a dark mist appeared out of nowhere, and soon, all of them found themselves inside of the Entity's realm.

Mori idea 1:
As the survivor tries to crawl away, the Mountain Man stands towering over them, before grabbing them by the neck, pulling back, breaking their back and kills them on the spot. (ref: Mikal's death in the first movie)
- The signature mori animation used in both the first and the second movie
Mori idea 2:
Alternate idea. The injured survivor tries to get up from the ground, starts to stumble and proceeds to run off, before the Mountian Man appears out of view, using his pickaxe to topple the survivor over,
before impaling them in the back with his pickaxe as they try to crawl away. (ref: Ingunn's death in the movie)
Mori idea 3:
Another alternate idea.
As the injured survivor tries to get up, the Mountain Man slams his pickaxe into the survivor's leg, forcing them down on the ground, before finishing them off with a pickaxe blow to the head.
Ref: Morten Tobias' death in the first movie.

She is 23 years old, and is dating a guy named Eirik at the time of the events.
After her friend Morten Tobias has a bad accident, she discovers an abandoned lodge tucked within the mountains.
She quickly took the lead, and started taking care of Morten, including setting his leg, and closing the wound with a tube of super glue.
