Lorel is one of the nine original bears who ruled the Artic. He is the first Teller of Ways, and was David Rain's "link" to the bears in Icefire. He is a desendant of Thoran as all bears are. He was described as wise but not afraid. He told David what became of Gawain's fire tear. His modern day desendant is Avrel another teller of ways and one of the bears who killed Voss .
Nothing is known of what became of Lorel. Lorel sat on the left hand side of Thoran on a pillar of ice.
