Icefall is the planet on which the city of Neverness is situated. The planet orbits a star called Sawel, which is a G2 star in our current classification system. Icefall is a very cold planet, with almost perpetual winter-like weather; light snows, heavy snows, and anything inbetween percipitates down onto the surface throughout the various seaons. Aside from the various inhabitants of the city, Neverness, there exist many tribes of Alaloi, humans who long ago broke the Laws of the Civilized Worlds and reverse-mutated their genes, becoming, essentially, cave-people.

Of course, this is all fiction. See David Zindell for more.

Ice"fall` (?), n.

A frozen waterfall, or mass of ice resembling a frozen waterfall.
