Creation Notes: 
I created The Beast as a normal character, and then looked up Bears, Wolves, and Bulls and adjusted the attributes and abilities as seemed appropriate. The trick with creating a lot of these characters is the character development that they go through in the course of their stories. The Beast's hindrances for example are there strongly in the beginning—but have faded by the end, and if I had a toy of the non beast version of the character, there would be a separate character sheet for that purpose. So I just made a judgment call and wrote up what he was like somewhere in the middle of the movie, where he had softened a bit, but still had some beastliness in him.

I didn't realize where all the different parts of his beast form came from, interesting!
