Sven was orphaned as a calf and nearly died before being rescued by Kristoff. The two remained by each other's side ever since as best friends. As adults, Sven works alongside Kristoff in harvesting and selling ice throughout Arendelle. Sven's role in the operation is typically that of a sled-puller with Kristoff in command.
Though Sven cannot speak, Kristoff understands his physical gestures and expressions, even going as far as to voice Sven's thoughts aloud (to a surprisingly accurate degree)
Sven and Kristoff are first seen as children, joining a group of ice harvesters during their work. Together, the two manage to harvest their own small block of ice, and trail behind the harvesters as the workday comes to an end. Along the way, Sven and Kristoff come across the royal family, and follow behind them out of curiosity. They are led to the Valley of the Living Rock, where they meet a female troll named Bulda, who happily decides to adopt the pair. From then on, Sven and Kristof
Once Upon a Time
Sven plays a small role in the fourth season of the ABC series, appearing in the episode "A Tale of Two Sisters". After Anna embarks on a journey against Elsa's wishes, Kristoff and Sven are left to distract the Queen of Arendelle to prevent her from pulling her younger sister back. Elsa soon arrives and confronts Kristoff and Sven on Anna's whereabouts. Throughout the scene, a sassy Sven responds to the banter between Kristoff and the Queen through snorts. After Elsa gathers th
Sven appears as an unlockable mount for the Toy Box in Disney Infinity 2.0. He is also mentioned when playing as Anna in the game when she openly wonders what he and Kristoff are up to.
Sven made appearances alongside Olaf in a few special, mini-game levels of Frozen: Olaf's Quest, following the hapless snowman through the map.

For the stage adaptation of Frozen, Sven no longer has the broad, cartoony design of the animated film, instead appearing as a real reindeer. He is brought to the stage through a unique form of puppetry; still portrayed as a quadruped, actor Andrew Pirozzi dons prosthetics that completely covers his body to give off the illusion of a real reindeer.
In World of Color's winter rendition, Winter Dreams, Sven makes a brief cameo pulling a sled holding Kristoff, Olaf, and Anna. In the 2014 reprise of the show, Sven appears alongside Olaf after the performance of "Love is an Open Door". Sven also appears as a puppet in Frozen: Live at the Hyperion, also in Disney California Adventure.
