Rumor has it that they're halfway to trog as it is. But I'm sure you'll be fine... just fine...

Faydra

John Bear is a slave in The Pitt in 2277.

Background

Masters of "claw and paw" combat, John and Grudd Bear are man-mountains with a vicious winning streak in the Arena. Thanks to an addition to RadAway, they are almost impervious to the Arena’s traps, and the siblings have developed an impressive plan of attack: one brother holds back, scorching the escaping foe with Flamer fire while the other rips the victim apart with a Deathclaw Gauntlet.[1]

The brothers are two of Ashur's best soldiers. The Brotherhood forces that took away their younger brother, Greg Bear, considered them too wild and mean. However, their ferocity and resilience made them perfect footmen for the God-King.[2]

Notes

  • Faydra, coordinator of events in The Hole, comments on how the Bear brothers ferocity leads people to believe that they are half trog. It is unknown if this is certain, however.

  2. The Lone Wanderer: "How did you rebuild after the Scourge?"
    Ishmael Ashur: "It wasn't actually that tough. The Scourge had cleared out a lot of Trogs, so we had space to move in. The Brotherhood had looted a lot, but they left even more behind as "damaged goods." And you can rebuild a lot out of "damaged goods." For example, they took one survivor, a kid the called "Kodiak". But they left his big brothers behind, because they were too wild and mean. But as it turns out, the Bear Brothers were some of my finest soldiers. At least, until they went up against you."
