- "Shit! Whatever it was, it blew out Gravity Tether 16! Caldwell, Sterling, Egan - get over there and stabilize it before we have a miniature black hole on our hands! Me, Banks, and Bear will get the Marker inside."
Bear was an engineer member of the Extraction Dig Team on Aegis VII.
Bear was one of the CEC personnel sent to extract the Marker 3A in an operation chefied by Cooper. When the Marker was removed from its pedestal, it activated and the shock wave destabilized the Gravity Tether 16. Cooper then sent Sam Caldwell, Egan and Sterling to fix it in the Megavent 24. Bear remained along with Banks to take the artifact indoors and is last seen approaching the Marker when the team is entering the Megavent.
It's unknown what happened to Bear afterwards, he may have been one of the miners killed by Sam. Even if he managed to survive Sam's murderous rampage he probably turned insane due to his continued proximity with the active Red Marker, much like Pete Fancher and Jennifer Barrow.
