A Stangebär (SHTAA-nguh-bair; Ger. Stange "rod, spear" + Bär "bear") is a porcupine-like Wesen that first appeared in "Quill".


When woged, Stangebärs gain an impressively thick coat of colored quills, or spines, used both for armor as well as camouflage. The color of these quills seems to fluctuate between black and grey. Even between woges, they have been observed to change color. 

These quills cover up the majority of their limbs and also sprout out of the top of their heads, interspersing their hair. The spines' consistency seems to be adjustable, since they visibly don't damage any clothes or items that the Stangebär might be wearing. They also gain large sharp black claws and dark eyes, and their skin turns slightly more reddish in color. Like many Wesen, they are stronger in their Wesen form than they are in the human form, as one was only able to throw off his attacker after he woged. However, they do not appear to be superhuman in strength.


Stangebären are generally peaceful and docile, similar in nature to their fellow rodent Wesen, such as Mauzhertz, Reinigen, and Eisbibers. Unlike Mauzhertz and Eisbibers, Stangebärs are not cowardly and will resort to violence, but only when they have to. They tend to find work in areas that allow them to be outdoors.
