This article is about an older version of DF.

In Dwarf Fortress, gender is what determines if two creatures can produce offspring.

Determining Gender[edit]

When viewing a unit, a symbol appears below its name:

Gender Symbol Common names Other uses
Male Boar Bags
Female Sow Amulets

Additionally, when viewing a unit from the u menu or with v-z, the creature will be referred to as "he" or "she".

Raws[edit]

In the raws, genders are defined in separate castes (not to be confused with casts). Castes are often just defined as "male" or "female", but there are a few notable exceptions.
