Bears are an important and integral part of AH.COM society, as per the real Second Amendment - the Right to Arm Bears. Consequently, it has been postulated that n00bs should be forced into caves to present grizzly bears with various weapons, n00bs being the most expendable, but some feel that as Landshark is the foremost proponent of bears in general, he should also have this honour.
Bears were invented in China, somehow. Possible explanations for genetic engineering in an ancient society have not yet been put forward, and it is instead held by many that pandas were forced to mate with brown things. Brown animals. Like dogs, or mice, or… wombats.
Bears are also some of Thande's sworn enemies.
