Svanir as a Norn

The Nornbear is a beast being hunted by Jora. Also known as Savage Nornbear, it moves swiftly, attacks without remorse and vanishes, making it difficult to track.

Spoiler alert: The following text contains spoilers relating to the story of Guild Wars Eye of the North.

The Nornbear is Jora's brother Svanir (?-1078 AE), who was transformed into the beast when the two of them were hunting over Drakkar Lake and he made the mistake of calling upon a presence within the lake. This creature, a champion of Jormag, used the Elder Dragon's power to turn Svanir into another champion heralding Jormag's return.

After slaying the Nornbear, Jora reclaimed her ability to "become the bear".
