Who are the Crystal Dwarves?[edit]

Only some know of the origin of the Crystal Dwarves. This sub-race of dwarves was made when the gods were making the dwarves, while most dwarves were made of earth and common elements, the crystal dwarves were made from unique and rare crystals giving them strange and unusual powers. Some see the crystal dwarves as near godlike figures that represent a time of peace, bountiful harvests, or that the gods have sent them a savoir. Most who see them in this light tend to be fellow dwarves, but some humans or other common folk may share this idea. Crystal dwarves typically live in deep underground mines or citadels, most often preferring to stay as close to the earth as possible. Since their forms are changed by the crystals they are made from, their personalities are as well. This gives each member of the subspecies unique traits that represent their crystals. For example: amethyst dwarves are typically very shy and quiet, turquoise dwarves are cheery and joyful, sapphires are curious and kindhearted, rubies are brave and shy, emeralds are ambitious and determined, and diamonds are loving and charismatic. Of course, these traits do have exceptions, but for the most part one can determine the personality of a crystal dwarf based on their crystal.

How do Crystal Dwarves Look?[edit]

The Crystal Dwarves have a few physical traits that set them apart from their fellow dwarves. Most noticeable are:

  • Hair Color: Usually, crystal dwarves have hair that is similar to that of regular dwarves, but with highlights of the colors of their crystals.
  • Eye Color: Crystal dwarves have eyes the color of their crystals, for example: amethyst dwarves typically have purple eyes
  • Skin Color: Tan and light brown skin tones are common for crystal dwarves, though their skin can often have tones of their crystal's color. Sometimes, crystal dwarves can have patches of their crystal's colors in birthmarks that they keep throughout their lives.
  • Height: The Crystal Dwarves tend to be the same heights as regular dwarves.
