Bear stands strong and alone, needing none other – but defends their own family to the last. Bear shrugs off the worst humanity can do and goes ever onward. Weather, disaster, nothing fazes Bear.
Bear may seem warm and friendly and sometimes they are. And sometimes they will go without so their children will eat, and hunger drives even the gentle to terrible deeds.
Shamans call on bear for fortitude, for strength, for blessings on children, and for protection for those who are forced to travel alone.
