Echidna men are generally peaceful and surprisingly resilient. Even crossbow bolts and whips seem to be unable to penetrate past their muscles, leading to long, drawn-out battles waiting for them to bleed out. This makes echidna men relatively useful for live training, or as bait in a devious trap.

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, 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.

Echidna men practice a religion known as 'The Way.' They actively and enthusiastically seek out other worshipers of their goddess, but seem unwilling to proselytize to those not familiar with their beliefs.

Echidna men generally find shows of strength to be more entertaining than comedy. Accounts of echidna men chuckling are few and far between.

May or may not guard giant emeralds.
