Half Dwarves are a race or humanoids born through the union of an dwarf and a human, although children born of two dwarf blooded parents are not uncommon. Dwarves and humans have lived shoulder to shoulder for most of history, especially since the fall of the ancient dwarven kingdom of Kolzamor. Despite the lack of any taboo between human and dwarven pairings, the existence of half dwarves is very rare.
Half dwarves have a unique perspective on the world, blending the dedication and observant nature of their dwarven parent with the fiery passion inherited by mankind, they see the world with the opportunistic eyes of humanity and the pragmatic heart of dwarves, leading most to develop a sage-like understanding of their surroundings. Despite this, many half dwarves have a deep seated stubbornness that makes itself much more apparent without a dwarves natural stoicism. Half dwarves are generally not happy perusing the role of craftsmen or laborers often become adventurers or join the ranks of the Empyrean priesthood.
Half dwarves stand taller than dwarves but shorter than humans. They inherit the heavy build and wide features of their khazar lineage, but their skin color is normally dictated by their human side. Half dwarves are commonly seen as either tall dwarves or short humans, depending on who is making the observation. Most can spot a half dwarf when they see one, although mistakes have been made in the past.
Half dwarves have no culture to call their own, although the culture of Findle may be the closest thing to a true "half dwarven" nation given the large population and influence of dwarven blooded humans. Generally speaking half dwarves represent the culture they were born into. Despite their close connection to their dwarven kin, most half dwarves do not hold onto the same ancient grudges and racial vendettas that their parents do, preventing them from learning the combat and masonry skills of their dwarven parents. Most half dwarves are much happier to live in the moment, then focus on the past.
