A medium-sized, green fish found in temperate lakes.

Pike are a species of fish who can be found at temperate rivers and lakes. They are roughly half the size of a dwarf, and provide a fair amount of returns when butchered. As non-vermin fish, pike can't be fished by fisherdwarves, but can be caught with the use of a drowning chamber. Infant pike are called pike fry.

Some dwarves like pike for their distinct markings.

Admired for its distinct markings.
D4Dwarf.png This article or section has been rated D for Dwarf. It may include witty humour, not-so-witty humour, bad humour, in-jokes, pop culture references, and references to the Bay12 forums. Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Also, do not attempt to arm your army with these, as they have low penetration and are very prone to bending.
