A large person with the head of a polar bear.

Polar bear men are animal people versions of the polar bear that inhabit savage tundras and glaciers. They spawn in groups of 2-10 individuals and can pose a threat to passing civilians. In terms of size, they are almost 4 times larger than a dwarf and should not be trifled with, though they will stand little chance against an armed military squad.

Like other savage animal people, they can join civilizations, become historical figures, appear as visitors and be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like polar bear men for their strength.

A humanoid that should be rightfully feared.
