Default Dwarves of the Shielded-Lands

As Gaia did with my elves Earthos did with my Dwarves at the same time. But where Elves embrace the flow of life and the magical weave it creates Dwarves prefer the Solid reassuring of order. They have no problem with change, but only change for purpose. They are long lived mortals like the Rocks they called home, but unlike the Elves even stone gives to Time.

While they have no problems with light being Earthos the prefer to be close to the stone they love, so the Dwarves called Racdeartháir who live in The Shield Mountain care little for the surface of them leave the control of surfase to the Gnomes.

But leaving so closely with the mountains sacred to Elmara did complete spare the Racdeartháir from Farlorn's warping, resulting in the Racmáistir who did complete;y shun the surface world and delved deeper into the earth Warring with both the Racdeartháir and Hînienvala claiming they alone should have mastery of the true world of Rock.

While the Racdeartháir favor Ethos as their patron God with the Cult of Ethos are the main source of Magic in their Relm; The Racmáistir follow a Fallen member of Ethos's Celestial who a objected the amount of Free will given to Mortals.
