Dwarves are a short, bearded and stout humanoid race that until very recently were found mostly in their underground kingdom, Azarak, until they made a dark discovery, and their home was lost to their own mutated kin and a horde of monstrous creatures.
All Dwarven males have lengthy beards decorated with various trinkets and symbols, which usually relate to accomplishments in life such as marriage, craftsmanship and more. Their beard is a symbol of not only wisdom but of social status, and losing one’s beard is a sign of exile or disgrace.
Dwarves are naturally stubborn and resistant to change. Their society is rigid and orderly, with Dwarves never changing professions and adhering to customs that have been around for so long, most Dwarves don’t remember why they do it but that they just have to do it. Dwarves tend to not show emotion to anyone unless they are married to them, have a deep bond with them or have a debt to them, as it is a sign of great respect for a Dwarf to be open about their feelings or emotions. Lastly, Dwarves have a great sense of justice, and what they believe to be right and wrong. Most of the world in Dwarven eyes is black and white, there is no grey or middle ground.
It is believed by most Dwarves that they were shaped from the earth into what they are today by Mur-Azarak, their god, when he needed the perfect workers to harvest the bounties of the world that he created. He has come to them several times in the past in order to save them, and some Dwarves are currently in a crisis of faith, as when they needed him most, there has been no sign of their god to save them.
