Kharuuk is the patron god of the dwarves, although as one of the elder powers, he is also the elven god of making. He loves gold and jewels more than any other material, and respects skill more than anything else. The dwarves are his children, forged of rock with a heart of adamantine- the third people of the world.
Kharuuk teaches his followers to work metal and stone. He teaches them of the beauty of the "fruits of stone"- metals and gems, that which he finds most beatiful of all. He is the protector of the dwarven race, his children, and the master-forger of the elder powers.
 Clergy and Temples
Most of Kharuuk's clergy are dwarves. His temples are forged of stone, gold and adamantine. His clerics forge offerings from gold and gems for him. Some of his clerics are elves (and, as one of the elder powers, he tolerates their dislike of strict law), though they act more like Maëlân's clerics than Kharûk's clerics.
