THE NORWEGIAN NIGHTMARE

Abandoned in the snow one dark Norwegian winter night, the Nightmare was found by a clan of bears. They lovingly raised her as their own, and she had an idyllic childhood summering on the fjords, snoozing the winter away in her cozy cave, and noshing on the occasional shepherd (they taste like lutefisk.) One fateful night, while her adopted family was hibernating, her sister Brunhilde was stolen by a wicked carny to be sold as a circus bear. The Nightmare and her family were crushed, and she vowed to never rest until Brunhilde was found. Since then, the Nightmare has been traveling the world hunting down her bear sister. While searching in Mexico, she fell in love with lucha libre and started training as a luchadora in order to better avenge her sister. She also met the Scrambler in Mexico, and shortly thereafter, received an anonymous note stating that she could find her sister in Durham, NC. Coincidence? The Nightmare has traveled north to find her sister and seek her revenge. When not in the ring, she enjoys eating berries, sleeping late (til April, actually), and mauling unruly campers.
