A small flightless bird that lives on arctic shorelines.

Penguins are small creatures found inhabiting arctic oceans, where they spawn in groups of 5-10 individuals. Only as big as a blue peafowl, these tiny flightless birds are completely inoffensive, serving as little more than a distraction for a dwarf. They produce very few products when butcherered, making hunting them for food rather worthless, though they are arguably useful as target practice, at least.

Penguins possess a pet value of 10, but lack the necessary tokens to be trainable.

Some dwarves like penguins for their coloration, their waddling gait, and their way of flying through the water.

Admired for its waddling gait.
