Ursa's hatred remained strong until the Glen Gummis brought Cavin to Ursalia to witness Buddy's Test of Bearhood. After a spat between the two, in which Cavin claimed to be as tough as any Barbic, Ursa suggested he also take the test to prove himself, which Cavin eagerly accepted. During the final phase of the test, in which Cavin and Buddy had to pass through the dreaded Gordian Gulch near Ursalia, Ursa revealed she had laid a few surprises for Cavin in the gulch, intent on seeing Buddy defeat the young human. Her plan backfired however, as she, Gruffi and Sir Thornberry discovered a pair of satyr-like Hairy Gobbers in the gulch, who were intent on skinning Cavin and Buddy alive. Ursa led the other two into the gulch, determined to rescue Buddy (though not necessarily Cavin) but set off several of her own traps and was ultimately captured by the Gobbers along with Gruffi and Sir Thornberry. After Cavin and Buddy risked their lives to rescue them, Ursa admitted she was wrong about the young human and that his actions proved his worth, making Cavin an honorary Barbic.
