Beorn, the Vegetarian

I am a little late in life to be discovering the joys of fantasy literature- but I notice that every character I run into, even the most beloved (Hagrid and Bilbo, for example) are BIG meat eaters. I was happily surprised then, when the character of Beorn appeared in The Hobbit.  He is strong and mighty, fiercely intimidating... and vegetarian. What's more than that, his animal companions are his nearest and dearest friends!
