Not to be confused with Wereboar.

Werebear on Solstheim.

Werebears are the most abundant breed of lycanthrope found in Skyrim and also inhabit regions such as High Rock, the Imperial Province, and Morrowind. Legend holds that smearing Canis Root on the trees surrounding one's home will ward off werebears.[1]

Scientific research[edit | edit source]

Anthropology-enthusiast and member of the Order of the Horn, Lentulus Inventius wrote about investigations into the werebear rumors. In his account, he found no scientifically reliable anecdotes of the existence of werebears, let alone werewolves, save from one account presented by Karsten Hammer-Back. The story revolved around lycanthrope hunters, the Silver Hand. Besides this report, Inventius attributes the stories of werebears to utter folklore that sprouted up over particular vicious, yet mundane, bear attacks in Skyrim.[2]
