The Kodan

The Kodan - MMORPG.com

The official ArenaNet blog has been updated with a Guild Wars 2 lore piece entitled "The Wisdom and Power of the Kodan". The Kodan is a bear-like race that inhabits the northern regions. Kodan walk on two legs and approach ten feet tall. Kodan have a sophisticated culture that is amply fleshed out in this article.

The kodan do not claim any connection or relationship to the norn race, but some Voices choose to interpret early stories of a lost group of kodan as an explanation of the origin of the norn. If this is true, they argue, then the norn are failed kodan who have forgotten their place as judges and protectors of the balance, and that is why their true “bear” form has been replaced with a fragile, furless state. Because of this pressure from their shaman, the kodan often treat the norn as spiritual failures, possibly even a race moving backwards in the cycle of life, toward primitivism and destruction — and that even as the dwarves before them, if this is true, the norn are a race on the edge of extinction.
