    1.   5.1  Overview

Bear Grylls was born and raised in Freetown. After honing his skills in the art of construction, Bear took his abilities on the road and made for Nova Scotia in the hopes of starting his own family and finding a place where there would be less competition. Following the assault on Anathema, Bear died of his resulting injuries.

1.  Appearance

1.1  Basics


  • Species: Bear looks almost completely dog, likely a mix of various large breeds. His wolf heritage is apparent in the colouration of his back.
  • Fur: He's made for cold weather, sporting a thick double coat that sheds slightly during the warm weather. It's soft and downy to the touch, and gets silky around his ears and tail.
    • Optime Hair: He doesn't really have any defined hair – the fur between his ears darkens to a darker shade of gold, and it's longer and wavier than anywhere else, but doesn't really look like “hair.”
  • Facial Features: Completely doggish – very blocky and thick-skulled.
  • Build and Size: Thick of build and relatively tall, he's no giant, but is quite a bit taller than the average Luperci when in Optime. Most notably, he's broad of chest and limb.
    • Lupus: Medium in height, but with thick, short limbs. He's built longer than great in height. Fur is longest in this form.
    • Optime: Bear's largeness is most noticeable in Optime. He carries himself in a very hulking manner, his shoulders drooping habitually from carrying heavy weight.
  • Humanization: Having been raised by canines carrying out human work, Bear is pretty humanized. While he prefers not to wear clothing out of practicality, he enjoys living in human structures and uses human tools. He's also adopted several human habits, such as smoking.


  • Fur: Primarily ____ on his flank, belly, cheeks, and legs, with a mottled ______ saddle on his back and rump, with lighter tones of _____ and a mask of ____.

  • Speech: Bear has a deep, rumbling voice, and speaks in a moderate tone that's usually very friendly and emotive. His voice is clear, not gravely, and when he speaks it's with mostly accurate grammar. His voice mostly resembles Daniel Craig minus his British accent, and perhaps a bit deeper.

    • Hums to himself a lot, and is a good singer – self conscious about it, though.

2.  Personality

For the most part, Bear is a quiet male who prefers to listen, rather than speak. Not that he has nothing to say, of course – he's just less inclined to share his thoughts unless they're need or particularly interesting. He tends not to be much of a deep thinker, and doesn't like to question things; preferring to use reason and logic to see the world. His intelligence is more like wisdom, and he gives good advice. As reserved as he is, it is rare to find him without a smile on his face, and he is quick to give a hearty, deep laugh. Hard working and loyal, the cream-coloured brute is not unaccustomed to working long hours and finds a simple pleasure in working with his hands. He's almost always doing something with his hands, even when he's not working – he's playing around with twigs, or fingering a smooth stone, or weaving grass together. On hot days, it would not be unusual to find the large wolfdog splashing in the water and making everyone else in the area soaked to the bone. He enjoys having a good time with other packmates, even if he doesn't say much, he greatly enjoys companionship, and closeness with other living creatures. Bear falls neatly into place within the pack structure, as he is neither overly dominant nor completely submissive. He's not afraid to step up and be assertive, if he needs to, but never without reason. To be elaborated upon later.

Bear, while not the overly religious type, is Jewish. He follows some of the kosher laws and doesn’t work from Friday night to Satarday night if he can help it. His proficiency with Hebrew goes as far as reading the language and knowing basic prayers and few key phrases that occasionally make it into his every day conversations. The only practice he makes a conservative effort to keep it the mitzvoth, or good deeds, which he tries to do once a day. But Bear doesn’t flaunt his beliefs and prefers to practice his faith in the privacy of his own home.
