Combat

Lycanthropes in their natural forms use whatever tactics are favored by their people, though they tend to be slightly more aggressive. Lycanthropes in animal or hybrid form fight like the animal they resemble.

Werebears fight just as brown bears do.

Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, the werebear must hit with a claw attack
