The Fireheart DwarvesDwarven legends state the best metal-crafting is done in the fires of the earth itself. Long ago, some Clans that followed this tradition sought out and settled near areas of Kossutha (Volcanic) activity, turning such places into their forges. These Dwarves became the Fireheart Dwarves. They toil in the heat of magma, creating weapons, armour, and other goods noteworthy even among fine Dwarven crafts. They trade these goods for necessities not found in the harsh environs of their chosen homeland. Fireheart Dwarves sometimes form alliances with the Azer. They maintain good relations with this elemental race, coming to their aid against the Salamander, Firenewts, and the Efreeti when needed. In return the Azer assist Fireheart Dwarves against Fire Giants, who are persistent enemies of the Dwarves, often competing with them for territory. Fireheart skin tones range from deep, ruddy browns to dark bronze or mahogany. Their hair is typically black, brown, or grey, with some sporting deep, copper-coloured or rich, dark-red hair. Eye colour tends toward brown or black and occasionally hazel or grey.
