Ursa is Bear's special friend from Spain. According to Bear in "You Go, Ojo!," Ursa lives in a house on a hill and tends to a farm, where she grows various berries.

She and Bear exchange mail regularly, and she has been mentioned in "Bear's Birthday Bash," "Picture This" and "What's Mine Is Yours."

She made appearances in "And to All a Good Night" for a special party honoring Luna, and again in "You Never Know" as a surprise visit on Ojo's birthday.

The Ursa are genetically uplifted Terran black bears. One of their colony worlds is Miip (Ley 0819)

Like their Terran ancestors they normally walk on all fours but can stand erect, where they can be as tall as 3 meters. They may also walk bipedally when needed, free up their forelimbs. When working with communicating with creatures smaller than themselves they tend to sit on their rear, making eye contact easier. They rarely wear clothes or shoes, but often wear tunics and body packs.

During the Rule of Man era, GenAssist, a Solomani corporation, developed creatures that could assist in the colonization and development of worlds. Late in the project, they developed the Ursa for use on higher gravity worlds, and as defense against dangerous life forms.

When the Ursa project was cancelled in favor of other, more successful projects, GenAssist death squads were assigned to destroy the experimental Ursa colonies. One colony was able to fight back and defeated the death squads, gaining access to weapons and ships. These rebel Ursa then went on a mission to rescue others of their kind from execution. After this, the Ursa fled to deep space, hunted by GenAssist to cover up their atrocity. After a time they called off the hunt and the Ursa were able to colonize several worlds.

After centuries of running and survival, Ursa live in tight clans, usually in a village far from humans. Individuals usually consider the safety of the clan above their own. Within their clans they still exhibit bear social behavior, using ritual combat to determine the pack leader. Outside of the clan, Ursa are reserved, speaking only when necessary, and not talking about personal matters. When someone earns the trust of an Ursa they will see their light and playful nature. However, it is not easy for outsiders to earn the trust of an Ursa.
