High atop the sacred Ice Mountain stands a great temple dedicated to the Great Spirit Bear. It is said that this fortress monastery was founded by Boris Ursa the Forever Tzar, and that the warriors who serve are descendants of his most noble knights.[1b]

Great White Bears guard the iron gates of this formidable place and the time of its inhabitants is devouted to the learning of the arts of war. Rarely do they ride to war, these Sons of Ursa, perhaps only once in a century. But when they cross the High Pass over the Worlds Edge Mountains and brandish their proud standards, Kislevites take heart and their enemies flee before these mighty knights and their fearsome steeds.[1b]

No other regiment in the Imperial army of Kislev typifies them more than the Sons of Ursa. Heavily armoured knights atop War Bears, they are a symbol of Kislev itself. They venture forth from their fortress monastery in times of great need to take their place at the front of the army as their most feared and respected warriors.[1a]
