Duke Bergan is one of Drew's greatest allies in the Wereworld series. He is a Werebear, the husband of Lady Rainer and the father of Lord Broghan and Lady Whitley. A survivor of the last Werewar, his allegiance to the late King Wergar came to an abrupt end when he forced the Wolf to surrender to Leopold. Tall, broad and barrel-chested, the bushy-bearded Werebear cuts an impressive figure. The Bears of Brackenholme traditionally protect the whole of the Dyrewood but their power has diminished down the years so much so that the most they've been able to marshal is the central forest immediately round the city and Dymling Road itself. Now in his late sixties, the future of the Woodland Realm lies in the hands of his children - in particular his son, Lord Broghan.
