The Tribe of the Bear was a nomadic group of Reghedman barbarians living in the tundra that comprised Icewind Dale.


During the Battle of Icewind Dale, the Tribe of the Bear attacked the town of Termalaine.[1]

Some time after the War of the Silver Marches in the late fifteenth century DR, one of the Bear tribe's two remaining chieftains, Wolvig Barrundson, formed an alliance with a supernatural entity called the Ice Witch, also known as Hedrun Arnsfirth. Hedrun's defeat also spelled Wolvig's doom, allowing the sole remaining chieftain at the time, Giinvald Halraggson, to declare himself the Bear King.[2]
