The Greyling was a huge type of bear found in The Great Woods . They were normally quite docile and ran away if they saw humans but when they'd just come out of hibernation, could be temperamental. Greyling Bear's were bigger than the warhorses used by Icemark soldiers and were a light, greyish colour. Charlemagne was attacked by a Greyling Bear during the events of Blade Of Fire .
Hunting down a Greyling Bear and riding back to the city with its head used to be an ancient show of adulthood, that a boy had grown into a man.
