The werebears are one of a number of lycanthropes, humans inflicted with a supernatural virus which allows them to take the the power and appearance of a specific species of animal, in this case, bear.


  • Heightened hearing, agility and endurance; they are significantly stronger and faster than normal humans.
  • While regular weapons can cause them injury, they will heal most wounds given time, but are still vulnerable to silver and fire.
  • Transformation from human to animal form heals most injuries instantly, up to and including fresh loss of limbs unless the wound has been cauterized, but quick transformations use up a lot of energy and only the most powerful werebears can transform into an animal and back without immediately passing out in exhaustion afterwards and sleeping for several hours.
