Hippo men are animal people variants of the common hippo who can be found in savage temperate lakes and rivers. They spawn in groups of 2-10 individuals and should be approached with extreme caution; a hippo man is over 13 times larger than a dwarf and can make short work of any civilian who provokes them. Do not attempt to fight them without an equipped military squad.
