Dwarfs are mythical creatures, that have been around for hundreds of years in stories, narrations or mythologies.
Dwarfs come from the Norse mythology. Frequently, the dwarf was portrayed as a short person with a beard, who was wearing a pointed cap.
Enchanting, cunning, greedy, treacherous but still mostly helpful are the qualities, that are ascribed to the dwarfs.
In stories, video games or films, they usually appear as artful blacksmiths, who forged weapons and armor for the knights and warriors of that time.
Compared to other mythical creatures, dwarfs are not tied to a specific place or house, so they lived like humans in society on their own.
