This article is about the current version of DF.
Note that some content may still need to be updated.

This page is about wolf people, not to be confused with a werewolf; a type of werebeast.
A person with the head and tail of a wolf.

Wolf men are humanoid versions of the common wolf and a species of unremarkable animal people, found in a variety of savage biomes. They are about as heavy as a dwarf, being only slightly smaller, and should pose no real threat to a civilian unless provoked. They are particularly rare to encounter compared to most animal men.

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

Clothing sized for wolf men can still be worn by dwarves, although it's slightly smaller and, therefore, lighter. As such, metal armor forged for wolf men will encumber your dwarves about 8% less, the downside being slightly reduced protection against slashing weapons.

Some dwarves like wolf men for their cunning.

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, pop culture references, 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.

There is currently no clear link between the Wolf Men known to appear in Dwarf Fortress and the Wolf Men known to appear in extremely badly-made B movies, although they stand roughly equal chance of becoming involved in hideous, gory horror shows.

When young, they often cry human.
