Quaggoth

A quaggoth is a bear-like inhabitant of the Underdark. Originally believed to have been bred by drow magicians as a slave race, the quaggoth have escaped and filled thier own niche in the Underdark. The origin of quaggoths is unknown. Some sages claim that they were once a semi-civilized race which dominated much of the Underdark through conquest and ritual sacrifice, until the drow, duergar, and other races broke their power. Others speculate they had some sort of civilization on the surface and were driven underground; this theory is supported by the quaggoths’ hatred for surface-dwelling dwarves and elves. They did, however, have an underground kingdom called Ursadunthar, deep beneath the Spine of the World, until it fell to duergars from Gracklstugh in -1350 DR.1
