Who are the Beast Dwarves?[edit]

Only a small few know of the origin of the beast dwarves. This sub-race of dwarves was made when a clan of dwarves was partaking in a tribal hunt for a nature domain god. The dwarf clan won the hunt and nature god awarded them strange and awesome powers based on the beasts in return for gaining his favor. Many see beast dwarves as animals but to a few, they see them as champions of the hunt leading those willing to the best game around. Beast dwarves typically live in locations that remind them of the wild. Since their forms are changed by the wilds so are their personalities most of the subspecies share certain traits with their animal forms, examples of these traits being: The Wolf being loyal and Brave, Bear being strong and hardy, Owl being wise yet cold, Eagle being Fearless and determined, turtle being shy yet patient.
