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.
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.
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.
