They're a couple of mean bastards. Hell, rumor has it that they're half way to trog as it is.

Faydra, describing John and his brother.

John Bear is an arena fighter in The Pitt in 2277.


Masters of "claw and paw" combat, John Bear and his brother Grudd are man-mountains with a vicious winning streak in the arena. Thanks to an addiction to RadAway, they are almost impervious to the arena's traps, and the siblings have developed an impressive plan of attack: Grudd holds back, scorching the escaping foe with flamer fire while John rips the victim apart with a deathclaw gauntlet.[1]

During the Scourge, his other brother Greg was taken in by the Brotherhood. However, he and Grudd were left behind due to being "too wild and mean". [2]


John is the brother of Grudd and Greg Bear.

  • Faydra, coordinator of events in The Hole, comments on how the Bear brothers' ferocity leads people to believe that they are half trog. It is unknown if this is certain, however.
  • If the Lone Wanderer kills Grudd Bear first, John will sometimes take his flamer and use it against the player character.

Notable quotesEdit


John Bear appears only in the Fallout 3 add-on The Pitt.


  1. Fallout 3 Official Game Guide
  2. DLC01Quest_DLC01AboutPitt2_0000B3FC_3: For example, they took one survivor, a kid the called "Kodiak". But they left his big brothers behind, because they were too wild and mean. But as it turns out, the Bear Brothers were some of my finest soldiers. At least, until they went up against you. (Ishmael Ashur)
