This article is about an older version of DF.
A flying monster with stretched skin over its emaciated body. It has the head of a jackal with needle-like horns protruding through its mane.

Nightwings can prove to be very dangerous creatures due to their horns and ability to fly. They are also double the size of a dwarf, and thus can easily kill an unarmed dwarf. They have the ability to suck blood, but it is unknown whether this has any positive effects on the Nightwing or negative effects on the dwarf.
