Before Jack Frost was Jack Frost, he was Nightlight, the most trusted and valiant companion of Mim, the Man in the Moon. But when Pitch destroys Mimís world, he nearly destroys Nightlight too, sending him plunging to Earth where he is destined to remain forever a boy, frozen in time. To keep the cold in his heart from taking over, he spreads it to the landscapes around him and earns a new name: Jack Overland Frost.
