John Bear is an arena fighter in The Pitt in 2277.

Background[edit | edit source]

Masters of "claw and paw" combat, John Bear and his brother Grudd are man-mountains with a vicious winning streak in the arena. Thanks to an addiction to RadAway, they are almost impervious to the arena's traps, and the siblings have developed an impressive plan of attack: Grudd holds back, scorching the escaping foe with flamer fire while John rips the victim apart with a deathclaw gauntlet.[1]

During the Scourge, his other brother Greg was taken in by the Brotherhood. However, he and Grudd were left behind due to being "too wild and mean".[2]

Relationships[edit | edit source]

John is the brother of Grudd and Greg Bear.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Faydra, coordinator of events in the Hole, comments on how the Bear brothers' ferocity leads people to believe that they are half trog. It is unknown if this is certain, however.
  • If the Lone Wanderer kills Grudd Bear first, John will sometimes take his flamer and use it against the player character.
