Bear remembers little before before he was awakened, he remembers the druid who found him, he remembers when he the druid was there no more hunger, he remembers he was fond of the druid although as memory of why, and remembers his awakening. It was autumn, in a grove where red leaves fell. The druid painted runes into his fur and ground then began chant, Bear didn't care the druid did strange things often. As night fell, the druid finished his chants. During the night thoughts and dreams came to Bear. In the morning the druid spoke to Bear and for the first time Bear understood he asked what happened, why he could understand the druid and the druid could now understand him.
The druid explained the land was in danger, i there was group a cult of deamon trying to open a gate to the lower planes and he needed Bears help, he'd made bear stronger and smarter so he'd be able to overcome the fear the unnatural presence would cause. Bear didn't really understand but after a lot of questions agreed. Eventully the two of the them track down the cult, the battle was fierce but they were victorious however not without cost, the dark and curses had taken its tole on the druid, it was only a matter of time before curses overcame the old man. The two travelled together for almost two years before druid passed. During which time Druid and Bear had several adventures becoming minor folk heros in rural Gilthorian.
