Special Traits

  • Padded Feet. The bugbear cutthroat has advantage on Dexterity (Stealth) checks to move silently.

Bugbears who find themselves in civilized society often find a niche for themselves as affordable assassins. These cutthroats are typically able to afford better quality gear after a job or two, and most quickly discard their tribal garb.
