Werebears are a type of creature found on Solstheim. They are a variant of lycanthrope, and are similar in most respects to werewolves, with the obvious exception of their appearance. It is not possible for the player to become a werebear, however.

Background

According to On Lycanthropy, Skyrim is said to be teeming with werebears, and they are the reason some people use Canis Root.[1] Interestingly, werebears are only found on the island of Solstheim, an outlying island formerly the property of the province of Skyrim. In the past, the Daedric Prince Hircine used the island for hunts using lycanthropes.

Combat

They perform in the same manner as werewolves as their attacks are identical. They attack with their claws and teeth, but also possess a lunge attack which knocks the target off their feet. Unlike werewolves, some werebears revert to their natural form upon death.

Interactions

Filial Bonds

Search for Wulf Wild-Blood's brother, Torkild, who has become a werebear.

Cleansing the Stones

The Conjure Werebear power can be gained during the Cleansing the Stones quest, after cleansing the Beast Stone.

Snowclad Ruins

A pack of three werebears can be found at Snowclad Ruins, at which they can be seen in human form wearing ragged trousers before transforming and attacking.

Random encounters

Packs of three werebears can be randomly encountered in the wilds of Solstheim. Transformed werebears may return to their human form after some time.
