A werebear is a shapeshifter able to transform into a bear.

Most werebears are good-natured and desire to help others in their communities. They see themselves as the guardians standing between the natural world and civilization. Their animal instincts guide them to protect the splendors of nature, while their humanoid minds tell them to help travelers and provide aid to the weak.


Werebears are humanoids that can transform themselves into large brown bears. Their humanoid forms are often large and heavily-muscled. Werebears dress in simple garments that can be easily removed.

Their children are born appearing humanoid until they turn eight, at which point they will gain the ability to transforms in large shaggy bears.[citation needed]
