Carved from the very mountains they dwell in, dwarves have worked with their sturdy Pokemon for centuries, boring and sculpting their stone cities. They are strong, hardy, and dependable, known for being incredible defenders and crafters of strong weaponry. They value their ancestral traditions, which they preserve through the ages as fiercely as they defend the carved structures of their mountain homes.


Dwarves are usually around 4½ feet tall and are broad and stocky, weighing as much as a human. They have all the

same variety of hair and skin tones as humans but red hair is somewhat common among them. Male dwarves are known for braiding their long beards in elaborate patterns while females braid their hair.
Although they reach physical maturity at the same age as humans, dwarves age more slowly and remain hearty well past 150 years of age, often living to see 200.


Their main settlement of the dwarves in Illith is Ironvein, situated in the north-east mountains. It has existed there for hundreds of years, carved within the rock and it continuing to be built upon every year. The mountain has been hollowed out by dwarves and their Pokémon and homes are built into the walls of the caverns. Not all dwarves are from Ironvein though and many are born in Greyson the human city, never having lived within the stone.


Dwarves born in Ironvein usually gain their first Pokemon from their parents or grandparents when they reach their teen years. To build the bond between dwarf and Pokemon they will be required to do a task called "The Kinship" where the pair must travel together through one of the many exhausted mining tunnels for three days and work as a team to survive.
