    Iorek Byrnison
    Iorek Byrnison is the exiled king of the Panserbjørne (armoured bears). He forged his own armour from sky iron. His armour is his soul.
    Like all Panserbjørne, Iorek follows a very strict code of contract, and will in no situation betray a promise he has made. He possesses incredible strength, and like many of his kind is an expert smith.

    Now... concept!

    Hi everyone. Being from a spanish speaking country, I had never heard of these novels, so at first I did not understand if the "bear" term was simply like a nickname, but this character was human. So, for anyone else who didn´t understand this too well, I found this extra bit of info:

    "In Philip Pullman's His Dark Materials novels, the Panserbjørne (armoured bears in Danish) are large polar bears who almost always wear their robust armour. They have opposable thumbs on their front paws. Despite their large digits and immense strength they have remarkable dexterity. This, together with an innate sense of metallurgy, makes them exceptional metalsmiths, and they are capable of creating and repairing metal items far beyond the capabilities of human smiths. They are highly intelligent and, whilst they mainly appear to speak English, have been shown to speak in a number of indigenous languages." Hope it helps. cool topic.

    One thing I don´t get is... is he always on his 4 paws, or does he walk like a human? thanks

    More info

    For anyone wanting more detail, here's the wikipedia entry.

    And the answers.com entry

    Lastly, a link to the author's site, with shots of the book covers.

    These left me believing that the character is, in fact, a quadruped ursine creature, though one capable of wielding tools (no opposable thumb, and uses tools? er?) and as cognizant as a human.

    Artifex, it's actually stated in the books that they DO have opposable thumbs. They're not exactly as normal bears. But, even normal bears, being quadruped and all, can stand in two legs as far as I know.

    Lovely topic!!!
