Background:  -Run Away from the She-Bear!

In certain neighborhood in Tokyo there is a legend of a creature called the She-Bear. Numerous warnings are posted throughout the neighborhood warning you to run from the She-Bear if you happen to meet her. The first sign that you are nearing her is a stench that fills the air and then the sounds of small pieces of metal hitting each other (though she can move in such a way to deafen these). If you did not take these warnings and headed away from her, you will soon meet up with the She-Bear. She appears as a street person in rags and furs holding an old teddy bear. She also has pieces of jewelry hanging from her and has a pair of large scissors ready. If view up close she is quite hideous appearing almost zombie like. She speaks to herself in a rhyming sing song fashion about who she is meeting before giving chase. Once she has you in her site, she tends to be a dogged hunter. She will follow you until either she gets what she wants or by some chance you actually elude her.

The reason for her hunting is the acquiring of accessories of metals and jewels. Once she catches up with you she will either use her hideous strength and skill or her scissors to take the body part that contains the item she wants. She will rip out hair to get a barrette, cut ears and fingers to get earrings and rings and one can only imagine what she would remove to get a necklace. Once she has the pieces, she is distracted as she puts them into her bear (though she does wear some herself) as she sings about roughly mixing and roughly kneading. If her precious bear is knocked away from her spilling her trinkets, she will be distracted as she repacks the bear. She also can be distracted by throwing coins as the metal in them makes her stop to see if they are what she is after. Now if you don not wear jewelry of course, she will ignore you but if you do; she will come after you unless you throw it all away. So run away from the She-Bear!

Ps. she has no idea of value and is as likely to steal a cheap ring as she is to take an expensive ring.
