The brother Bears were well known friends to the Ancients and night elves. The bears held glyph markings on their fur. Ursol and Ursoc visited the villages of the Night Elves, specially during festivals to the Moon. Ursol carved statues made of dead trees, while Ursoc was fond of brew. Both learned this from mortals. Both bears would spend time allowing Night Elves children to mount them, and also spent time drinking ale with the Night Elves.
Ursol was a shaman spellcaster, while Ursoc was a strong warrior using his paws and teeth. Combining their powers they would strike as one any enemy with efficiency, using strength and magic.
Ursol and Ursoc are patrons of those who favor balance of nature and the living beasts of the wild. Among the most loyal followers of Ursoc and Ursol are the Furbolgs, practicing their magical traditions as Shamans—copying Ursol; while other Furbolg follow on Ursoc’s customs—carving wood statues and structures. Timbermaw Hold in northern Felwood is an example. The stronghold’s entrance is a giant wood carved in the shape of a growling bear head—as homage to the twin bears.
The Night Elves are also followers of the twin bears, Ursoc and Ursol, dedicating their lives to the Eternals taking the aspect of the bear: The Druids of the Claw. Every Druid that follows the path of the bear, needs to undergo a ritual by talking to the Spirit Bear in the Moonglades.
Ursol and Ursoc befriended generations of Humans and Night Elves. During the War of the Ancients, Ursoc and Ursol were the first to answer the call of Cenarius to combat the Burning Legion. They clashed with the Doomguards and died defending the land.
The worshipers of the twins, hope to someday find any ancestral alewell or carvings made by their patrons.
