Bugbears are beings that are members of the goblin family. However, bugbears have a few differences.

Appearance[]

Bugbears are similar to their goblin and hobgoblin cousins in appearance, however, they also have characteristics of both bugs, and bears, hence the name. They are around 4 feet in height, have a goblin-like stature, with the thickness and musculature of a hobgoblin, and they have goblinoid ears, but they are more rounded, similar to bear ears, bear fur, paw like hands and feet, and a bear-like half-muzzle for a nose/mouth. They also have bug antennae on their forehead, four arms, compound eyes, and wings on their backs.
