When exploring the snowier biomes of Minecraft, some of the luckier players might come across a peculiar little structure composed entirely out of snow---the igloo. Introduced in the 1.9 update, the igloo, apart from just containing a bed, furnace, crafting bench and a redstone torch, also contains a stone laboratory hidden underneath the ground which could be reached via a ladder.

And so, the question of the day: who was the owner and constructor of the igloo?

The underground laboratory of the igloo, as we know, contains a brewing stand, a cactus pant contained in a flower pot, and also a cage with two villagers trapped inside, one zombified and the other not. The brewing stand, containing two potions of healing, suggests that the person who once inhabited the igloo should have been skilled at alchemy, and the cactus plant suggests that the person might also have been a traveler, for you probably won't normally find cacti sprouting in cold biomes. These two pieces of evidence suggest the person somewhat possessed traits similar to that of the player, and the crafting bench, along with the furnace located at the uppermost floor of the igloo, tell us that the person also possessed the ability to craft and forge items. The bed also tells us that, alike the player, the resident sleeps at night rather than remaining awake. Still, what about the caged villager and the zombified one? What do they tell us about the owner of the igloo? Well, this piece of evidence suggests that

1) The owner had a habit of experimenting on villagers, telling us
2) He was probably a scientist/biologist, but was also
3) Highly dangerous, as the experiment he was conducting involved zombifying villagers alive.

Who was the mysterious resident and owner of the igloo? Herobrine, maybe? Well, I suppose Mojang will eventually supply us with more clues later on...

Nice theory.

And after researching, I think I've uncovered who the maker of the igloo is. Not gonna tell you though, it's a secret :)

I really hope that it is Herobrine! That would be so cool!

The igloo's only official purpose was to be an example on how loot tables could be used.

That I doubt...Mojang has plenty other oppurtunities to do that with the existing structures...

First one: "Searge reveals he is working on a new structure to showcase the new 'loot table' feature."
