0008938: A man with no head is still alive
I started a new adventurer and his lord has no neck or head. The worst status he has is "having trouble breathing". He isnt troubled one bit by his predicament.

Legends say a titan tore his neck off 2 years ago. So in world gen losing a neck isn't fatal despite the obvious consequences(the game catches it rather quickly when the creature in question realizes it cant breathe once you find it).
