These creatures are shaped like men covered with rough scales. They have the head and tail of a lizard and possess a dark and evil intelligence. They are found deep under the earth.

Reptile man civilizations can be spotted on the Civilizations screen after embark. They tend to stick in small squads, and will ambush your dwarves if they get too close.

Reptile men tend to be armed, spears and blowguns being the most common, but are still easy fodder for a well armed Military.

They can be found in underground caverns at times, usually hostile but some reptile men have been seen as "friendly", not attacking unless provoked.

Reptile men can swim and breathe underwater. If confronted with enough force, reptile men will retreat into nearby underwater lakes.

They appear to use wooden weapons, so they are not particularly well armed, but they can still kill unarmed civilians fairly quickly.
