ECOLOGY

More About Wereboars

Source Pathfinder Player Companion: Blood of the Moon

Wereboars in human form can be distinguished from wereboar-kin by their spiteful demeanor and need to control others. They frequently live as bandits or violently dominate villages or small fiefdoms. Like ragebred, they have strong family loyalty and a driving desire to procreate.

They may choose to infect the targets of their romantic feelings in the hope that it binds them together, often with predictably troubling results. Even more ashamed of their condition than wereboar-kin, wereboars resent ragebred for avoiding the indignity of becoming wholly a pig.

Wereboars are among the lycanthropes most likely to embrace a life of adventure, thinking of it as a way to prove their worth and intimidate those they wish to control.

They are most often barbarians, but wereboar fighters and rogues are also common and the rare lycanthrope oracles are most often wereboars.

Environment any forests or plains
Organization solitary, pair, brood (3–8), or troupe (3–8 plus 1–4 boars)
Treasure NPC gear (studded leather armor, 2 daggers, other treasure)

In their humanoid forms, wereboars tend to be stout with upturned noses, bristly hair, and a noticeable overbite. They usually have red, brown, or black hair, though a few are golden blond, pale blond, or even bald. Chin whiskers are common, but males often can’t grow full beards. Because they can be stubborn and aggressive when riled up, wereboars usually live in their own communities rather than mixing with non-lycanthropes; a wereboar’s farm or ranch doesn’t look out of the ordinary. Wereboars tend to have large families with many children.

Many wereboars are known to have especially bad tempers, rivaling those of murderous werewolves, and even other lycanthropes tend to avoid them. This suits the wereboars fine, especially as some weretigers and werewolves have been known hunt young wereboars.

Note that the statistics presented here for wereboars assume that the creatures are in their barbarian rage—if the creatures are encountered at another time, simply adjust their statistics accordingly.
