Vanguard Kyle is a soldier who returns from the wall surprised to see snow all over Ascalon City. He gives you the two pieces of coal needed to complete the Greatest Snowman Ever Made quest.
- "Hey, guess what? It's snowing! And sticking. I just returned from the Wall to find Old Ascalon like this... it's absoulutely buried in snow! I'd say we all need to do our part to make sure that winter loses its hold on Tyria by taking part in the Wintersday battle between Dwayna and Grenth."
- "Snow in Ascalon City! Who would have thought? This Wintersday gift from Grenth should slow the Charr advance for sure. You say you need two pieces of coal, eh? Yes, nothing like coal to warm the stove or give a snowman the magical power of sight. I think I can help you. I don't know if it's normal coal, in fact I daresay it isn't, but I have these two magical pieces right here. Some kind of Titan demons dropped them when some hero or other defeated them awhile back. I thought they'd make a good souvenir, but they're literally burning a hole in my pocket. Consider them my Wintersday gift to you. For the children."
- "I love the snow, but this is getting a little excessive."
- Several of the Wintersday NPCs are named after South Park characters. Vanguard Kyle and Guard Brovlosk are a reference to Kyle Brovloski, Leo Stauch is a reference to Butters Leopold Stotch, and Guard Marsch is a reference to Stan Marsh.
