Scrag-bears are omnivorous demi-ursids, with long, lank and ragged fur, shovel-like foreclaws and a continuously slavering snout. Used as a war-mount by the Imperium, they are an example of one of the many vicious animals that have been semi-domesticated by humanity. Scrag-bears are foul-tempered and notoriously shortsighted, but phenomenally strong and durable. Originally native to the brutal feral world of Endrite, they have since been successfully bred elsewhere. They must be reared and trained from birth to be used as mounts, but can be extremely loyal to their masters, whom they recognize by scent, and are well-suited to battle.
