Bandit bears (sometimes called badger bears) were mid-sized procyonids indigenous to the Torlynn countryside, particularly the swamp lands. They were were predominantly vegetarian, with one significant exception. They were known for their devious hunting tactics, particularly their predilection for playing dead and then plucking the eyeballs out of nearby animals when they got close so they could eat them.
The Quest for the World-BreakerEdit
When Syxx was traveling with Four across the swamp lands, Syxx successfully caught a bandit bear and ate it. She considered adorning herself with the animal's skull in several different ways, but eventually decided against it.
During the pirate raid on the town of Littleton, Four observed the stuffed trophy of a bandit bear in the home of one of the fishermen who lived there.
The Veil of SoulsEdit
In 3894, a lone bandit bear was scavenging through garbage bins in Porticus Umbra.
Behind the ScenesEdit
Bandit bears are basically the same as racoons, but the species was likely forgotten during the New Age and had to be rediscovered, prompting someone to invent a new name for them.
