The Yio Dufong, nicknamed "bears", were a powerful yakuza clan based in the town of T'o na'Chee in Koryo.

For many years, the Yio Dufong possessed the standing bear, a potent magical chalice that granted those who drank from it the strength of a bear. All the Yio Dufong would imbibe before a fight, and for this reason they were called the "bears".

However, the standing bear was later stolen and by 1357 DR had not turned up.[1]
