As it is written in mythology, Kjell once fought a bear. At the location where the fight took place, the city of Shieldtree was later built. In this very area another historical event found its place in Lifarsland's history books. In the 6352nd cycle, the III era, another bear was up to mischief. The so-called Grey Bear.
Rumor has it that it was twice as big and three times as fast as a normal adult bear. Several people and the cattle from nearby farms were killed by the bear. This was very much to the displeasure of the then Jarl, Richard Boneshield. Richard himself set off with a special squad to hunt for the giant bear. Several days passed before the last encounter between the inhabitants of Shieldtree and the Grey Bear. The Grey Bear killed two of the group's warriors and seriously injured three others before Richard Boneshield personally forced him to his knees. Richard gave the bear the coup de grace and ended his life. While Richard was celebrated as a hero, the bear was honored despite the tragic circumstances. This event was seen as another test that will find its place in the history of Shieldtree. Parts of the animal carcass were used to forge legendary armor. It is called the Grey Bear Armor and can be witnessed in the Jarl's hall by Shieldtree. Til today, no one has been allowed to wear the armor.The question remains whether this will change?
