Dwarves are a species of stout humanoids who honor tradition and crafts. Originally from the lost planet Golarion, they now can be primarily found on Absalom Station, Star Citadel ships in the Diaspora, and on mining colonies throughout the Pact Worlds system's extrasolar colonies.12


Dwarves are shorter and broader than humans, standing between four and four-and-a-half feet in height and weighing between 150 and 200 pounds. They don't reach adulthood until the age of 40 and generally live up to 450 years. They possess the ability to see in the dark over short distances.2


The dwarven race originated on the lost planet of Golarion. Unlike most other Golarion races, dwarves originally came from the subterranean tunnels beneath that world, and emerged on the surface thousands of years before the Gap in an event known as the Quest for Sky. While many dwarves accept that their coming to the surface of Golarion ended the Quest, others today believe that it was simply the first part of the Quest, and that their creator god Torag intends them to find another, destined alien sky.2


The larger dwarven communities are marked by a veneration of tradition, especially traditional craftsmanship, and a strict adherence to ancient laws and enmities. This has given dwarves a reputation for being old-fashioned among other species and cultures. While this is not true for all of them, dwarves as a whole are cautious when adopting new technology, but once a technology has been vetted and tested, they generally adopt it very quickly.2


Once led by Torag, the Dwarven pantheon of gods is now led by his younger brother, Angradd.2


Dwarves own Ulrikka Clanholdings, a mining consortium in the Diaspora.3


Most dwarves prefer the company of the other races who came from Golarion, including humans, gnomes, and halflings, although they do have a somewhat impolite appreciation of androids' elegant construction, and have much in common with kasathas and korasha lashuntas.2
