When the Sabertooth Tigers and Mammoths were exiled to the Arctic Northern Regions as a result of the Second Great Illumination, their bones were fused with the ice, and they were given involuntary ice powers. The same thing happened to the Vultures and Icebears when the Leopards exiled them north. The "Ice Hunters" was what they were known as when the four tribes allied and attacked Chima after the mammoth and sabertooth mages lifted the curse.
