Jackal men are animal people variants of the common jackal who can be found in savage tropical grasslands. They spawn in groups of 1-5 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.

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

Some dwarves like jackal men for their resourceful nature.

Doesn't always look this fierce to other dwarves.
