Tick men are humanoid versions of the common tick and a species of animal people, found in most savage biomes in small clusters of 1-3 individuals. They are only half the size of an adult dwarf and as such, are unlikely to be a threat to even an unarmed civilian. Like their vermin counterparts, tick men drain blood during bite attacks, which may lead to interesting scenarios if one attempts to bite a vampire. All tick men are born with Legendary skill in climbing.
Some dwarves like tick men for their ability to expand.
