Unfrozen wood was a semi-luxury for the huntsman, alongside hides these were the two materials that he maintained for the mixed patterns that made up the memories of Vodarara. Specifically, focusing on the creation of his specialised arrows.

They were designed to deal with specific encounters and to bring down the many specialised creatures he could engage with or prey on in Imuchakk.

The two entombed within these wooden-weaves was a Charged Head - An arrowhead designed to cause its cascading damage effect after it was interposed by hide or scales, designed to penetrate into a creature.

The second, a venomed head was not much different from many of his arrowheads, It would rather carry a contact poison to afflict the creature it strikes.

Vodarara wasn't exactly literate while he had a rather crude and rough ability to read. He could not write in the common form of words but rather used art, marking and scales to keep his arrows methodology in a form that could in theory last longer than him.
Such designs aided him in producing the same conditions and dosages to his specialist arrows time after time and would likewise make them rather hard to decode for those that didn't understand his markings.

The craftmanship that went behind the "charged head" was incredibly fine. While the shaft and the fletching of the arrow was the same as the vast majority of these lighter headed arrows, it was the arrowhead itself that was extremely specialist.

The secret to the arrowhead was rather not in the carved shards of ice but rather how they were bound. The arrowhead itself was nothing more that numerous shards of hard Imuchakk ice around the shaft of the arrow.

To hold them in place came its most specialist feature. Rather than hide or sinew to hold them in place. Water mixed with animal fat, this "milk" semi translucent would be used to encase the shards of ice as it went stiff in the cold. Providing the arrow head with a somewhat translucent appeared at its tip when looking through the head of the arrow, the ice shards refracted some light as it passed through.

Within the markings, it depicted a number of indented carvings into the wood - this specifically showed the size of the shards to Vodarara, the ice would be carved to fit within the insert.
It also featured a rather cave art like drawing of a small creature, this tusked rabbit like creature provided the fat that Vodarara used for binding the shards to the shaft.
