Knut Whitebear is an elder of the norn. The Great Lodge is his steading, and as the Master of the Lodge he is a defender of Hoelbrak, the settlement that has been erected around the lodge. The Great Lodge was founded by Asgeir Dragonrender, the hero who led the norn south from the ravages of Jormag and Whitebear's grandsire. Some might call him a leader of the norn, although in truth the concept of 'leadership' in norn society is poorly defined.
