Bugbears, despite most appearances, are also Goblinoids, massive and brutal, these aberrations were created as shock troops for ancient wars. They are exceedingly long-lived, but rarely reach an old age due to their incredibly violent disposition. Because of their longer lived and lower reproduction rates, they are nowhere as near varied in mutation as their Goblin kin. They are smart and cunning, with a mind for battle strategies, they are quickly an equal foe on the battlefield for their tactical abilities and ability to cut huge swathes of carnage.
Rumour has it that there is powerful Bugbear lords from the very first generation that was spawned hundreds of years ago. These abominations are said to be behind almost every massive war with the Savage Races in recent times.
