Dwarfs are a race of short, stout humanoids who tend to a dark and ruddy complextion. Dwarves traditionally wear their hair longer, and often will have it bound into braids, or have jewelry of precious stones and metals bound into it.
Dwarves are proud warriors highly driven by honour and have a strong tradition of family honor. Much of what typical dwarves do is bound up with the honor of their clans, and they will often go to great lengths to increase the honor that their clan has.
The Dwarven empires exist predominently in the Gundor Thorn, however the are some isolated, and very insolar Dwarves living in the Skycutter mountains. The Skycutter clans are very rarely seen from, and tend to attack tresspassers on sight.
Interestingly enough there are almost no dwarves living in the northeastern mountain range. This has been attributed to the aggressive clashes between the Orcs and the Dwarves, when they first migrated to Rog Nor Tuon.
