A person with the head and quills of a porcupine.

Porcupine men are animal people versions of the common porcupine, who can be found in various savage regions. 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 porcupine men for their quills.
