Great horned owl men are animal people variants of the common great horned owl, who inhabit most savage regions. They spawn in groups of anywhere between 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. All great horned owl men are born with Legendary skill in climbing.

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

Some dwarves like great horned owl men for their ear tufts and their piercing yellow eyes.

Great horned owl men are not able to answer the questions of young humans regarding "how many licks it takes to get to the center of a Tootsie Pop". Although the nature of such an invention is unknown, it is assumed to be a sugary product made by humans.
