     Similar in physical shape to that of a wereape, or weredrake, most  werebears are large, heavily muscled and and tend to have most of their  normal bodies covered in a layer of fur with colors ranging from dark  brown to a silvery-blue.  Their head hair becomes longer, thicker and if  they didn't have head hair they tended to grow some.  

     Most of  these therianthropes are neutral in their philosophy, though many are  also known for their devotion to good. and all have a desire to help  their communities  and view themselves as the guardians between the  natural world and the more civilized regions.  Despite their desire to  help communities and stand as guardians, they tend to be moody,  introverted loners that seek out vengeance against evil entities within  their regions.       

     In their hybrid form werebears are impressive  beings, they gain the head of a mighty bear, their core body becomes  incredibly strong, their legs and arms end in bear-like paws with  powerful claws.  Their entire body is covered fur.       

     Their animal form is a huge bear. 

     Uruskia are immune to this therianthropy.
