Giant bears are creatures of tremendous strength and size that prowl forests. They are omnivorous, eating berries, fish, and other such animals, but they won't object to an easy meal when they can find one, and sometimes wander into humanoid settlements in search of food. Such occurrences can be frightening indeed, as a giant bear can tear apart houses and buildings in search of food, so they have to be driven off or otherwise deterred, whereupon they usually return to the wilds, though they rarely intend any harm to befall the inhabitants, they merely seek food. Some creatures encourage them to build their dens near their settlements, using them as natural guards, as their ferocious teeth and rending claws tend to make quick work of any intruder or enemy, and a well-fed giant bear is a loyal giant bear. They speak their own language, and understand speech in Common, and they sometimes live among or near werebears.
