Fanaticism(Clan) would fit, but it going put my main concern even more pressing.

I was condidering what potive point traits the my also need. as I was hoping to push the point total to be a bit closer 40 like the other dwarves and both elves. But mind you though Anthro-Penguins are on 23 points. so 40 probably shouldn't be the goal. but adding Fanaticism(Clan)...

Hum Perhase something like Ristances to Poison and ST+1 ?

I want to avoid innate magical powers is that in the setting is seen as either a sign of Dragonblood (on the Arcane side) or Divine Parentage like Camp-Half-blood style Greek Demigods (on the Divine side).

Alternately, such group-minded fighters might use a one-handed weapon from behind a shield wall. Roman style with large shields and short swords would work.
Great ideas. would you call it a Pollhammer and Duallin Pollhammer then?
