Bobcat men are humanoid versions of the common bobcat and a species of unremarkable animal people, found in a variety of savage biomes. They are a little over half the size of an adult dwarf and are unlikely to pose a threat to a fortress' inhabitants. While not as rare as their fully-animal cousins, bobcat men are also few in number, with only a maximum of 10 potentially existing in the fortress' surroundings.

Like other savage animal people, bobcat men may occasionally join civilizations, becoming full-fledged citizens who may appear in your fortress as visitors or be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like bobcat men for their short tails.

Don't believe everything you read, and if you miss some of the references, don't worry. It was inevitable.

Bobcat men will not raid your yarn stores, nor can they glide. They may occasionally make odd quips.
