- A large ferocious predator found in grasslands. It lives in groups of females and one male with a large mane. They hunt together and are capable of felling extremely large prey.
Lions are strong, carnivorous and very rare felines found in tropical areas, where they appear in prides of 1 to 3 individuals. At over thrice the size of the average dwarf, wild lions are quite dangerous to unarmed civilians and can rip a dwarf apart in seconds, and as such, they should be engaged with an armored squad if necessary. A newborn lion is called a cub.
Lions can be captured in cage traps and trained into exotic pets, and they're also sometimes brought along with elven caravans. They can receive additional war or hunting training as well, with their large size making them particularly attractive for the purpose of fortress defense, however their
[MEANDERER] tag will cause them to move around very slowly, making them unreliableBug:9588. Products made from lion parts are worth thrice more than those made from parts of common animals. They take 3 years to reach adulthood, though are fully grown by the age of 2. Additionally, lions are exotic mounts and as such may appear during sieges, being used by surface-dwelling races.
Some dwarves like lions for their roars.
