Bear's Ear

European - A Caucasian hero of superhuman. Strength. A monster demanded the sacrifice of a young maiden every year, otherwise he held back the flow of a river. When the daughter of the king of the underworld was due to be sacrificed, Bear's Ear turned up just in time to kill the monster and save her. The grateful king offered Bear's Ear the hand of his daughter in marriage, but the hero declined the honour, preferring to return to the upper world. Occasionally known as Bear's Ear.
