Broken Bear is a wild bear, living in a cave within a forest. He was tagged by wildlife authorities, which has placed him under the delusion that he was abducted by aliens. As a result, Broken Bear expects the aliens to return so he can be taken again and serve them as their leader.
The humans tagged him with a satellite dish, an ear tag, and a number. Broken Bear believes that these numbers are of astrological importance. He calls them "strange symbols", but later it is revealed that he can read the numbers, and calls himself 19 accordingly.
- Broken Bear owns a leaf collection, his favourite leaf being Barbara, who is framed on the wall of his cave.
