This article is about the current version of DF.
A person with the head and wings of a vulture.

Vulture men are humanoid versions of the common vulture and a species of animal people, found in savage deserts and tropical plains. They are only a little over half the size of an adult dwarf, being unlikely to pose a threat to a civilian's life, though they possess two significant traits: flight and the desire to steal your food. The former makes them difficult to attack, and the latter can be annoying to a newly-embarked fortress which has not yet yet settled up their food industry or made farm plots.

Like other savage animal people, vulture 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 vulture men for their patience.

No less thieving than the flying kind.

A guide to Vulture Man culture and traditions by Kivish Aughra:

  • Vulture Men consider Elves, or Elflings as they call them, their mortal enemies, and make a point of ceremonially devouring their souls in dark rituals.
  • They have been steadfast allies of the Crab Men since the dawn of time, and have been known to employ them as bodyguards and soldiers in their military.
  • Have a habit of enslaving any race smaller than they are.
  • They are very fond of crystalline gems and minerals, especially Amethysts.
