This article is about the current version of DF.
A small, round humanoid found wandering the caves deep underground. Most of its body is taken up by a huge tusked mouth.

Gorlaks are small, good-aligned humanoids encountered in cavern areas. Despite their appearance, they are benign, and so mostly harmless, although will sometimes cause job cancellations,Bug:3348 and occasional weak attacks against animals or sleeping dwarves. They are easily dispatched by even a novice military dwarf and/or most civilians. Gorlaks can learn, so they may visit a fortress. They can't be spawned in the object testing arena.

Some dwarves like gorlaks for their impressive tusks, their stimulating conversation and their helpful guidance.
