A summoned black bear

Black bears are the most common type of bears. They can be summoned by a Ranger and Shapeshifters can transform into one. The Ranger's bear levels up with the character and thus makes for a great tanking ally, with high health and damage output. While the same applies to the bear form, its use prevents spellcasting and thus it should only be used as a last resort.
