Worm men are animal people versions of the common worm, who can be found in savage tropical, temperate and taiga 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.

An archaeological expedition brought to the scholarly dwarven community a theory; that the worm men inhabiting the world are in fact an evolutionary subspecies. According to historical data, the original classification Lumbricina Militus went extinct after they started an Armageddon event claiming the majority of their own in a global civil war. If the historical accounts are to be believed, accomplished worm men could exploit the wind to further amplify the kinetic damage of their projectiles and could weaponize cattle as explosive ordinance. This is a developing field of study and all dwarven scholars are analyzing the viability in substituting these bovine munitions for elven alternatives.
The spirit of duty in a worm man is not to be besmirched, however. It has been confirmed at least one worm man could harness the use of an elastic pastry to heroically save a litter of puppies from a malevolent crow man.
