Marsupialis sinister

Class Almost a bear.
Habitat Any forested area. Originally Sacred Archipelago.
Description Large, arboreal, predatory marsupial.

Despite the rumours that Drop Bears don't really exist, they're now found all over Godville. They usually live high up in trees and drop down on their prey when it least expects it.

The (Non)Existence

A remote island located in the Sacred Archipelago populated by rude, well-tanned people started spreading the rumours that Drop Bears are not real. The whole point was to decimate the growing number of gullible tourists that started visiting the island, even though the island lays so far south in the Qu'tox Ocean that it doesn't fit on any of Godville's maps. Tourists, after being lulled into a false sense of security by the locals, are often viciously attacked and usually lethally injured.

Since giant eagle air travel has become popular, Drop Bears started spreading outside of their original habitat in Sacred Archipelago. The most likely theory is that Drop Bears started attaching themselves to bellies of cargo eagles and traveling all the way across the ocean to the mainland. They can be found all over Godville, now, since they have no other natural predators than heroes and heroines (and we know that those are not very effective predators).

Victims that have been dropped on by Drop Bears rarely survive, meaning this hoax can go on unnoticed by the general public outside Sacred Archipelago.

Anatomy

Skeleton of a small Drop Bear

An average Drop Bear's size is comparable to a large Biowolf or a smaller Bear Minimum. Its body is highly adapted for climbing and life in tree canopies — Drop Bears have incredibly strong forearms with long sharp claws, strong hind legs, large canines, and strong jaw.

Diet

Drop Bears used to hunt mostly large macropods native to Sacred Archipelago, but in recent years, they've started hunting any humanoid species as well. Their prey is generally much larger than themselves, but never stands a chance since Drop Bears attack unexpectedly from above.

Locals advise (once convinced they really can't persuade a tourist that Drop Bears don't exist) using their sacred bread spread made out of beer yeast extracts in order to prevent attacks. The victim rarely realizes that this will only make them more delicious and enticing for any Drop Bears around.

Attributes

Strengths

  • From a distance, they look very cute, docile, and calm.
  • Sharp teeth in an incredibly strong jaw.
  • Great sight and orientation in free fall.

Weaknesses

  • Upward-facing forks in their prey's hair.
  • With sensitive hearing, they hate accents (thus avoid and rarely attack locals).
