Bear (ベア) is a BladeMaster, kinda looks like Orca. At the beginning of the anime he feels curious about Tsukasa, and starts to investigate about him, then BT, who apparently met him in the real world and is in love with him, tells him not to involve with Tsukasa´s life unless he is willing to take responsability, so when he finds out about the real Tsukasa and the way her father has treated her during her life and how he would rather let her die than to keep her comatose, he offers Tsukasa the choice of adopting her once she wakes up.
Bear is a large burly BladeMaster. He wears relatively little armor, and most of his body and face is covered in blue wave tattoos.
Fairly easy going, Bear usually prefers to relax in The World. He acts as a sort of helper for newbies, and tries to give off an experienced air. When he does go adventuring he usually travels with either B.T. or Mimiru. He has the habit of quoting obscure authors to help make a point.
In the real world, Bear is a famous author and novelist. He is in his mid forties. Divorced from his wife he is constantly pestered by his adult son with demands for money. Demands that he usually gives into. Following the events of SIGN he became a sort of adopted Father to Ann Shoji, and is using his money to support her as she attends college.
Aside from playing The World, Bear enjoys reading books by famous authors, as well as writing books of his own. He is also a fan of the theater. He smokes as well.
Bear, Crim, Sora, and Piros make a cameo appearances at Balmung's Tanabata event.
