Dwarves are very short, yet stocky humanoids. They have the same wide variety of skin, eye and hair colours as humans. The most common eye colours are hazel, blue, brown and green. The males often grow thick facial hair, and the females often grow sideburns or may choose to shave their facial hair off. They are often seen as gruff, difficult to like or as skilled craftspeople or barterers. They are typically strong, hardy and dependable.
