Description

In The Hobbit, (prequal to Lord of the Rings), Bilbo Baggins and the Dwarves meet up with Boern after they escape the goblin caves. Boern is basically a hermit, complete with his own isolated cabin in the woods at the edge of the mountain, but at night he changes into a bear. He apparently has full control over this powerful form, using it to capture and question a goblin search party to verify the story told by his guests. At the end of the book, he even makes an appearance (in bear form) during the battle of 5 armies.

Unfortunately being an otherwise minor character in the book, Boern was cut from the animated movie. Hopefully though, he'll be reborn in the live action movie should it ever be filmed.
