The embodiment of nature's ferocity. It originates from the far southwest, where legend says that if you paint a baby's face with the Atlas Bear´s pattern on the first day it hears thunder, the Atlas Bear will protect the child for the rest of its life. Those who the Atlas Bear protects grow up to be strong and hardly, and are said to be able to survive danger that would likely kill an ordinary human being.
