This article is about the current version of DF.
An animal person with the head of the amphibious olm. It lives underground near water.

Olm men are humanoid versions of the olm and one of the many underworld tribal races of animal people, living on any cavern level milling around piles of meat and tanned hides. They stand at roughly half the size of an adult dwarf.

Approach with caution, unless the tribe is friendly. If the tribe is friendly, feel free to take advantage of them in fine imperialistic tradition and steal all their resources without compensation. To check whether a tribe of olm men is friendly, press u to view the unit list. The tribe will be labeled as either hostile or friendly. Alternatively, press v to view one of their profiles.

Like many underground races, the danger of olm men is not to be found in their wooden weapons, but in the substances found smeared on them. Olm men use many poisons, some of which can be deadly. They will launch group attacks on your fort, and have the ability to swim through your reservoirs and launch amphibious assaults on your fisherdwarves.

Some dwarves like olm men for their gills.

An Olm man with wizard-like abilites!
