Duergar are about the same size as dwarves but less muscled. Their eyes, accustomed to the darkness, are larger and have pale skin. Instead of ending in normal fingernails, many duergar have developed claw-like talons. Their beard and hair often is white or silver. Unlike their distant cousins, the dwarves they are on the evil side and are often pacted with the drow elves. Like their surface dwelling cousins, they too are grand craftsmen, and they make fierce sturdy warriors. However, their dark nature has brought them also closer to the magical arts for which they have a greater affinity than dwarves. There is no respect or love between both races and often dwarven settlements are victim to duergar raids, who find slaughtering for gold a faster way than mine for it.
