Great bears are the most powerful variations of bears. They are wild animals found in the forests of Dales and in Emprise du Lion. Some master rangers are known to summon great bears to fight for them.

Background Edit

The Orlesian great bear is so named because it is very large. Very large, indeed. Other names for it include the colorful "Old Man of the Forest" and the less-charming, but more clearly descriptive "Woodsman's Death." I am told that they are only found in remote parts of the Dales and that not even the nobility is willing to hunt for them, which makes them unique among the rare, giant, deadly, exotic fauna of Thedas: the only thing the Orlesians are truly afraid of.
