Unlike a handful of other deities worshiped throughout Runeterra's different cultures, the Freljordian gods are physical real beings that manifest as spiritual animals and each were conceived from some transcendental force that bonds them together like siblings. However most of these divine spirits have faded into obscurity over the eons, as the Freljord has dissolved into warring factions and tribal splinters.

Where some legends are still being shared, those stories have been misinterpreted far beyond any recollected truth and many times have fellow Freljordians engaged in brutal conflict over their religious conjecture, from drunken bar brawls to merciless wars. Now the only demi-gods to be remembered have been those few who still actively interact with their worshipers.

Of them, only Volibear OriginalSquare Volibear is known to actively influence their worshippers, but other Spirits that fall in this category are Ornn OriginalSquare Ornn, Anivia OriginalSquare Anivia, The Seal Sister and The Boar-God.

Ode to Ruin

This war-hymn of the Ursine appears to be a fragment of the much longer poem 'Ode to Ruin,' dating back to before the War of the Three Sisters. While some of the original words have no direct translation, the intent behind them is abundantly clear...

The sky rumbles deeply, knowing him,

As the thunder calls out “Valhir!”
A memory of ancient and faded glory
Beckon from ages past, ever near

Vorrijaard calls you!
And the wild heart within,
By tooth, and with claw, will return!
When Vorrijaard needs you
To answer the call,
Rise now! Together we stand tall!

The ground trembles deeply, awaiting him
The wind howls, carrying the reek of iron,
And earth, starved for centuries, shall soon drink
The rains of war another time

Vorrijaard calls you!
And the wild heart within,
By tooth, and with claw, will return!
When Vorrijaard needs you
To answer the call,v

Rise now! Together we stand tall!

The Tribe

The Ursine, or The Lost Ones, dwell in the north most parts of the Freljord. Entirely consisted of Spirit Walkers, the Ursine are human shapeshifters who serve the Great Spirit of the Bear known as Volibear OriginalSquare Volibear. Volibears servants are entirely devoted to their masters will and cause. While some retain their human appearance, most permanently shapeshift into grotesque approximations of wild animals and other types of monsters. The tribe has existed for as long as humans settled the Freljord, ever feared and respected by the lands inhabitants. They have been historically part of the Freljord Winters Claw Winter's Claw but due to the un-unified nature of the larger tribes, they don't have lots of contact.[1] Recently, Sejuani OriginalSquare Sejuani and Udyr OriginalSquare Udyr have been able to form a temporary alliance with the Ursine to fight other larger tribes such as the Avarosan and Frostguard. Only a few beings are able to match Volibears might, such as the Great Spirit of the Ram known as Ornn OriginalSquare Ornn.
