    Editor's Note

    The lycanthrope template dictates that a lycanthrope's hybrid form uses the natural AC, speed, size, and statistics of the animals' form if greater than the humanoid one. Additionally, the CR of a lycanthrope is the CR of the base creature or the base animal, whichever is higher, +1. The brown bear, which this is based on, is CR 5; therefore, this creature SHOULD BE CR 6.
