A person with the head and scales of a pangolin.

Pangolin men are humanoid versions of the common pangolin and a species of unremarkable animal people, found in savage tropical plains and forests. They are only a little over half the size of an adult dwarf, making them unlikely to pose a threat to civilians and even less to military squads.

Like other savage animal people, pangolin men may occasionally join civilizations, becoming full-fledged citizens who may appear in your fortress as visitors or be playable in adventurer mode.

Some dwarves like pangolin men for their overlapping scales.
