“I do not need your service, thank you, but I expect you need mine.”
Beorn is an enormous skin-changer and a master trainer of animals, who form his retinue. After the Battle of Five Armies, he returned to his own lands and traveled to every settlement in three day’s walk, offering his protection. In exchange, they accepted him as their chieftain, and the Beornings were born.
After spending a time getting to know Beorn, once introduced by Tor, the Fellowship is now welcome at Beorn’s House, as long as they treat his animals well, and their Standing will apply for anyone found there.
