Glarebears are immense, shaggy beasts that stand 15' tall on their hind legs.  They can be found in almost any climate, but tend to congregate near areas of high radioactivity.

Glarebears ordinarily scintillate with cascading red, green, and blue lights, but they can become completely invisible when hunting.  Glarebears can also "flare up" with an intense white radiance, causing everyone lacking appropriate eye protection (sunglasses, treated goggles, etc.) within 30' to suffer a -3 to all To Hit rolls directed their way.  And their Mental Phantasms—actually holograms—affect everyone (except blinded targets) within the same 30' radius.

Like most ursines, if both claws strike in the same round, they squeeze their targets in a powerful hug for an additional 2d8 damage.

A garment fashioned from a glarebear's pelt provides the wearer with concealment abilities identical to the Chameleon Epidermis Physical Mutation.
