Maybe a shape-shifting bear as well.

Brown bears are the most naturally variable wild species on earth, showing size variance to rival domestic dogs  Nerd

A number of scientists have gone mad studying bears because of this - I remember once reading a paper where someone claimed there were 35+ distinct sub-species of brown bear in the USA alone  Silly

If some of the figures are going to be armoured, polar bears might be the best to aim for proportion wise (they’re fairly gracile compared to other bears): sticking armour onto a big, fluffy Kodiak/grizzly base might make them too bulky.

Cheers!

PS My palaeontology M.Sc dissertation was on whether you could reliably differentiate between cave and brown bears just using the size of their teeth - you’d better (not?) ask my wife whether studying bears affected my sanity…  Don't tell anyone

PPS You can…  Wink

Bergmann's Rule "Creatures grow larger in cold climates" seems particularly suited for a large hibernating animal.

If some of your bears are bipedal, they could also serve as Rikshas (Bar people from classical indian folklore).
