The Dwarves are descendants of the Seven Fathers, the original lords crafted
from the earth by the Vala Aule. He is the Smith of the Valar, the giver of
mountains and master of crafts, and the Dwarves call him Mahal (Kh.”Maker”).
They were created first, but Eru forced his servant Aule to delay their
Awakening until after the coming of Elves. Following their birth, the Seven
Kings formed tribes based on their lines and separated. Although these Seven
Tribes have since spread across Middle-earth, they have remained close and have
spawned a universal reputation for ruggedness, practicality and unwavering
loyalty. The old adage is true: “No friend ever did a Dwarf a favour, no enemy
a wrong, without being repaid in full”.
They may not be essence users, monks nor any Hybrid spell caster and have no
restrictions on alignment. They have Infravision and are resistant to poison and magic.
They average 4 to 5 feet in height with little difference between sexes (size:4).
