A bugbear is a massive humanoid distantly related to, but larger and stronger than, goblins and hobgoblins. Like many goblinoids, bugbears speak the Goblin language. They are one of the only goblinoids to be covered in fur.

Bugbears are cruel and unruly. They live to bully the weak and despise being ordered around. Despite their intimidating builds, they are capable of moving with surprising steals and are fond of setting ambushes.

One will rarely see a bugbear out in the open, so travelers have little to fear from them. However, if one finds evidence that a cave or other habitable, dark place may be occupied, there is a good chance it’s occupied by a bugbear.
