Bugbears are Moblin slaves that have been bred specifically for guard duty and manual labor. Their arms, legs, and hearts have been physically enhanced, granting them prodigious strength. Bugbears have little capacity for language and speak few words, but they can perform a separate task with each hand thanks to the transplantation of an extra pair of eyes and an extra brain.

Historical Background

In Welsh folklore, a Bugbear is a bear-shaped Goblin used to frighten children. It is used to mean an imaginary object which causes irrational fear. It is derived from the Welsh word bwg, meaning "ghost" or "frightening spirit" and Middle English word bugge meaning the same thing.
