Curious Company (Zordaria)
Just as hobgoblins were created recently by mystical experiments between goblins and humans, the bugbear is the result of the mixing of goblins and orks. bugbears got the size and strength of orks, but did not get the deviousness of goblins, instead they got a strong bond of kinship. Bugbears will always sacrifice themselves for their much smaller goblin cousins and too a lesser extent to hobgoblins. Goblins often use this as a tactic; to lure people to attack them, then run back to where they have a bugbear friend, who is more than willing to then kill those attacking the goblin. Unlike hobgoblins, bugbears like orks, although orks consider them much inferior, although good brute force for battle.
