Galenbjørn is, or rather was, before he became a dragon, a Russian immigrant born in Svalbard. He worked in the coal mines of Barentsburg (Баренцбург). Although Svalbard is under Norwegian sovereignty, the unique Spitsbergen Treaty of 1920 allows citizens of signatory countries equal rights to exploit natural resources. Currently, Russia is the only country to maintain such a presence. Russia maintains a consulate in Barentsburg,the northernmost diplomatic mission of any kind in the world. Since his father is from Norway, he has a Norwegian name: "Galenbjørn" This guy will be the antagonist in a story I'm thinking up. Oh, he also has his own theme song: [link]
