The teddy bear that Kon is in is descended from a long line of unique teddy bears who are descendants of the hero The Hermit Bear of Reiatsu. Particularly they come from the lineage of the younger son who inherited the Hermit's "body".

It's also interesting to note that the older son (who inherited The Hermit Pooh's "spirit") , on the other hand, was thrown into a katana forge by the only daughter of a notable male and female Japanese samurai couple who died during the Battle of Sekigahara. The remains were then sent by soul burial to soul society, where it gave rise to the first mod souls.
