Bestiary - Unofficial Where the Wild Things Are Statistics - Bernard, Emil, & Ira

by Tim Wallace

As I mentioned first post (link), I used the names given to the creatures by Sendak, and included their names from the movie in parenthesis, with one exception. Ira was never (to my knowledge) given an official name by Sendak, so I just used his name from the movie.


Ill. Hans Arnold
Bernard (The Bull)
This black, fur-covered humanoid has the head of a bull and naked, human-shaped feet. A quiet intelligence seems to lurk behind its bovine eyes.

SPECIAL ABILITIES
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Bull’s Charge (Ex) When Bernard hits a target with his gore attack at the end of a charge, he can initiate a bull rush as a free action to move the struck target back in the same direction as his charge. Bernard cannot move with the target of the bull rush. If Bernard scores a critical hit against a creature with his gore attack at the end of a charge, it also staggers the target for 1 round. If the victim succeeds at a DC 16 Fortitude save, the stagger effect is negated, but the victim still suffers the effects of his bull rush attempt. The save DC is Strength-based.
Gaze Vulnerability (Ex) Bernard takes a –4 penalty on saving throws against gaze attacks.
Gnashing Teeth (Ex) Bernard can make an Intimidate check against one foe within 30 feet as a move action. If Bernard successfully demoralizes his opponent, the foe is shaken for 1d4 rounds.
Terrible Roar (Ex) As a standard action, Bernard can unleash a terrible roar. All shaken enemies within 30 feet must make a Will save (DC 17) or be panicked for 1d4+1 rounds. Once a creature has made a save versus the terrible roar of any wild thing (successful or not), it is immune to this power for 24 hours. The save is Constitution-based).

Emil (Douglas)
This odd creature has a reptilian body with the head and tail of a rooster.
