A wereboar was a humanoid or giant lycanthrope that was bitten by another wereboar. Wereboars were often of neutral alignment but hunted anything for food. Any humanoid or giant that survived a wereboar's bite could be infected with the curse, thus becoming a wereboar themselves.[citation needed]

Wereboars were aggressive and unfriendly creatures. They would often provoke fights for the sake of fighting. While mean-spirited, they were not necessarily evil in nature.[citation needed]

Physical AppearanceEdit

A wereboar in humanoid form tends to be a stocky, muscular individual of average height. Wereboars have three forms, a boar, the normal form of whatever creature is cursed, and that of a hybrid host/boar mix.[2]

Known WereboarsEdit


In the Year of the Keening Gale, 1050 DR, the family of Prince Natan was attacked by three wereboars. The prince died saving his family.[3]
