- 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.
Some dwarves like vulture men for their patience.

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.
