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

Firefly men are animal people variants of the common firefly, who can inhabit most savage biomes. They spawn in groups of 2-5 individuals and are generally content to keep to themselves, but may pick fights if provoked. In terms of size, they are a little over half the weight of the average dwarf. All firefly men are born with Legendary skill in climbing.

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

Some dwarves like firefly men for their enchanting glow.
