Whether born naturally or afflicted with the curse of the werecreature, wereboars are werecreatures who can switch between humanoid and boar form. They are one of the most feared types of werecreature.1


Like all werecreatures, wereboars have three forms—a humanoid form, a boar form, and a hybrid form.[citation needed]

A wereboar in boar form looks like a normal animal, although often a particularly strong and tough specimen. Perceptive observers might also identify that the creature has more than animal intelligence.[citation needed]

Afflicted wereboars in humanoid form keep their previous appearance (although they often become more bad-tempered). Natural wereboars tend to be stout, with bristly hair and a noticeable overbite. Their hair is often red, brown, or black; males commonly grow while chin whiskers but often cannot grow full beards.[citation needed]

Wereboars can also take on a hybrid form which combines their humanoid form with boar-like features. In this form they resemble a hairy humanoid with a boar-like head complete with sharp tusks.2[citation needed]

Habitat and ecology

Wereboars are often stubborn, aggressive, and bad-tempered. They gather together in their own communities, and tend to have large families. Other creatures prefer to avoid them as they are quick to anger.2[citation needed]

They are slow to make decisions, and equally slow (and stubborn) about changing their minds. They dislike other races, and are often embarrassed by what they consider to be their grotesque and graceless other forms. Thus they often avoid appearing in their bestial forms unless they intend to kill.3
