GUILD WARS 2 BLOG KREWE LOVE POLAR BEARS!
Guild Wars 2 | The KodanIf the prospect of hanging out with 10-foot tall Polar bears appeals, you're going to love the latest addition to the Guild Wars 2 races! Enter the Kodan... an intelligent race of bipedal, polar bear-like creatures from beyond the northern Shiverpeaks. However, these are not your average bears!
While similarly bear-like, the Kodan do not claim any connection or relationship to the Norn race, but some choose to interpret early stories of a lost group of Kodan as an explanation of the origin of the Norn.
The Kodan believe that they are the most spiritually enlightened race in the world. They have a strong belief in the importance of being in balance with the world around them, and that it is their duty to watch over the world, judge others, and maintain the balance... by force if necessary. Each Kodan tribe build entire cities upon massive floating iceberg fortresses known as "Sanctuaries", upon which they live and travel.
Each Sanctuary is led by two important individuals, "The Voice" and "The Claw", who are essentially partnered leaders within Kodan society. Neither has the right to overturn the other's decisions, and both have clear areas of influence.
In Guild Wars 2, with the rise of the Elder Dragon Jormag in the far north, the great ice ships of the Kodan were driven apart, with many destroyed, pushed out of the massive ice seas and into the shallow bays and harbors that border the Shiverpeaks. They cannot return to the arctic oceans, for fear that the dragon will destroy them utterly.
Will they be your friend or foe? That may very well depend on YOUR actions!
