The Bears Faction
















Faction Structure

 Ruling Lairds

The Bears nation is governed by three ruling Lairds of Caledonia. The duty of these Lairds is to lead the Bears nation on behalf of the three Queens of Caledonia.

Supporting the Ruling Lairds and Queens is the Privy Council on which a further four Lairds, and the Chamberlain of the Clans sit. The council is used to share information between those who govern Caledonia, and to make policy decisions as to the best way to take the nation forwards.

Morrigan - The Woman

Passionate, brash, & delighting in battle, the Morrigan stands against any threat that will harm Caledonia & its people.

Cerridwen - The Crone

Keeper of arcane knowledge & rites the Cerridwen, Anu's dark aspect, stands against ignorance, waste and frivolity

The four Caledonia Lairds, commonly referred to as the 'Peoples Lairds' represent the broad range of skills and expertise within the Bears Nation.

Chosen by the Ruling lairds to offer their counsel and wisdom in governance of key areas of prime national interest, the Lairds put forward their views to the Privy Council and work to progress the factions interests.

The Chamberlain is voted for by the Chieftains at the Clan Council every year and acts as the peoples representative to faction command.  The Chamberlain is the only person to sit on both the Privy Council and Chieftains Councils.


The duties of the Chamberlain are two-fold: Firstly, the Chamberlain calls the Chieftains Councils to discuss any issues raised in the Privy Council which the Lairds wish to be discussed, & to take concerns and issues from the people to the Lairds.  Secondly, the Chamberlain acts as the first point of escalation for any clan issues or disputes, & escalates any unresolved issues to the Laochs or Lairds as felt appropriate
