A staple of the fantasy genre Dwarves are long-lived, short and stout humanoids with a penchant for fine craftsmanship, precious stones, and ale (though not neccesarily in that order). Inhabiting deep caverns and caves amongst mountain ranges, Dwarven culture tends to be suspicious of outsiders though they generally get along well with most civilized races, with the exception of giants which seem to be a universally hated foe.
In the history of Eberron, dwarves are said to have originated in the Frostfell, an icy continent north of Khorvaire. There, they were slaves of the various giants (probably settlers from Xen’drik) who had colonized the icy terrain.
Dwarves in Eberron live almost exclusively in the region known as the Mror Holds. There are twelve distinct dwarven clans in the Mror Holds and the clans form a loose confederation to further their interests lead by the Iron Council.
House Kundarak is a Dragonmarked house made up of only dwarves.
