Mongoose men are animal people variants of the common mongoose who can be found in savage tropical shrublands and savannas. They spawn in groups of 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.

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

Some dwarves like mongoose men for their cunning and their agility.

Short, fierce, and short.
