When you have caught your bear, let her be sequestered in a cave. It is important she see no sunlight. Also, that she eat only garlic and mugwort. After twenty one days and nights, the bear will transform into a woman.
Take heed—she will be sad and lonely as the sole human. You will likely have to take her to wife, and, in this way, you will father a people. The tending of nations is a topic beyond the scope of this spell.
