A tiny insect with a pulsating, lumpy body. It is an evil bug that seeks blood.

Blood gnats are a type of hateable above ground vermin that are found in swarms near pools in evil areas. They may cause food to rot, and will inspire unhappy thoughts in dwarves who hold a particular antipathy towards them. Despite their description, they don't damage dwarves beyond the aforementioned unhappy thought.

Some dwarves like blood gnats for their thirst for blood and their pulsating lumpy bodies.

Admired for its thirst for blood.
