Duergar dwell in subterranean caverns far from the touch of light. They detest all races living beneath the sun, but that hatred pales beside their loathing of their surface-dwarf cousins. Dwarves and duergar once were one race, but the Duergar’s greed caused them to left their mountain strongholds to delve into the deep places of the world. The came to hat the light of the sun and have all but forgotten the feel of wind on thier faces. Duergar still consider themselves true dwarves, and the rightful heirs of all beneath the world’s surface. In appearance, duergar resemble gray-skinned dwarves, bearded but with cold, lightless eyes. They favor taking captives in battle over wanton slaughter, save for surface dwarves, who are slain without hesitation. Duergar view life as ceaseless process to accumulate as much wealth as they can, ended only by death. Though few can be described as anything other than vile and cruel, duergar still value honor and rarely break their word.
