Armadillo men are animal people variants of the common armadillo who can be found in savage tropical regions. They spawn in groups of 5-10 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves. In terms of size, they are a little over half the weight of the average dwarf.

Like other savage animal people, armadillo men can join civilizations, become historical figures, appear as visitors and be playable in adventurer mode.
