Overnight, Baern turns into a Wereboar. It turns out that he was scratched by Riverguard Keep’s old owner (who was a wereboar). Darryl spends a great deal of time attempting to convince us that we should not kill Baern and that we can cure him of the lycanthropy. Rawrly is not entirely convinced, and so decides to only kill him somewhat.
Darryl was right though. He can be cured. I am disappointed in the decision to give up a perfectly good wereboar ally.
