The Bears


Prozac Bear

(Color: Teal, Insignia: green/yellow capsule): The de facto leader of the bunch. Relentlessly cheerful... until his meds run out.


Evil Bear

(Light gray, red inverted pentagram): Jerkass. Tends to smash things when upset.


Gay Bear

(Yellow, purple rhinoceros): Fashionista, Homemaker, Fabulous. Not THAT kind of gay bear.

Lech Bear

(Blue, panties): Bully, pervert, Gay's hated rival?

Gimp Bear

(Brown with gimp mask, handcuffs): Silent, kindly medic with an implied kinky side; the most compassionate of the bears.

Nerd Bear

(Grey with glasses, hot dog): The wimpy fanboy of all things nerdly. A total weenie.

Death Bear

(Dark grey, skull): Dark, broody, and mysterious. The least social, Death rarely appears except to fix the major screwups of his fellows.

Crack Bear

(Green, syringe): Permanently in withdrawal, tweaked and stressed out.

  • Ax-Crazy: When not hindered by his fears, Crack is rather terrifying.
  • Cerebus Retcon: His constant nervous breakdowns are not Played for Laughs in Cracking The Surface when he goes into a trance and rips apart a goose in front of the zoo goers. And in Undiscovered Country, it's revealed that this is because he has come to associate the geese with the death of his mother and siblings.
  • Cower Power
  • Dark and Troubled Past: And how. Turns out, when he was a tiny cub, he thought he and his siblings were ready to head out on their own. Then a crocodile ate his brother and sister right in front of him. Then if that wasn't bad enough, shortly after, his mom had to leave to find food. But because she was in a hurry to get back to him, she fell prey to a hunter, leaving Crack all alone. Is it any wonder why the poor guy is such a nervous wreck?
  • Face–Heel Turn: Has made this in Change Of Heart.
  • Flat Character: He's constantly freaking out. That's all we know so far.
  • It's All My Fault: Blames himself for the deaths of his siblings and mother.
  • Nervous Wreck
  • The Sociopath: Without his fears inhibiting him, Crack is easily the most sadistic bear of the bunch.
  • Start of Darkness: The owl mentally healing himself of his phobias was the start of a horrific breakdown, resulting in Crack turning against the other bears. Seeing his family die as a very young child may have played a hand in it as well.

Tanked Bear

(Red, mug of beer): Alcholic in a near-permanent state of intoxication. Good thing he's a cuddly drunk. The most outwardly affectionate of them all.


(Panda, blue star): Former superstar of the zoo. extremely vain and conceited.


(Purple, tampon): Sara's sister. Extremely moody, but as sweet as pie.


(Pink, kiss mark): Cara's sister. Can be a total bitch sometimes. Likes to use her pheromones to make others do her bidding.
